Wilkes was an agent of the Strategic Scientific Reserve.
Wilkes, Johnson and Miller returned to the Strategic Scientific Reserve New York Office and briefed Agent John Flynn about their failure. That night Wilkes and a group of agents from the office went for a drink with Flynn.
The next morning Agent Wilkes was working when he witnessed how Flynn became angry at Peggy Carter for taking a mission. Instead of receiving orders he watched an unsatisfied Flynn tell Carter that she is going to run S.H.I.E.L.D. in Washington, D.C.. and watched her walk away from the office.
