History: (Secret Defenders#18 (fb) - BTS) - Mathieson is a long-time acquaintance of Dr. Druid. As head of Bureau 18, he became responsible for investigating paranormal circumstances and controlling information. In the 1970's, he had a hand in eradicating an attack by killer bees as well as the alien intelligence behind them. He also claimed to have helped silence knowledge of the existence of the Kree on Earth.

(Secret Defenders#17) - Mathieson investigated the death of a man in Texas who had been slain by Swarm. Coming across a report of occult activities in Chicago (the Secret Defenders opposing of Malachi), he determined to bring Dr. Druid in on the investigation.

(Secret Defenders#18) - Mathieson met with Dr. Druid and his associates Cadaver and Shadowoman, and informed them of the growing amount of insects seen around Houston, Texas, near a Rand-Meachum supercollider project. Druid agreed to investigate, while Mathieson attended in the guise of "safety inspector for the state." He encountered Iron Fist and Giant-Man at the plant while Dr. Druid began his own investigation. When the scene erupted into a panic as insects directed by Swarm attacked, Mathieson clung to the background.

(Secret Defenders#19) - Mathieson watched as Giant-Man and Iron Fist were joined by Archangel and Iceman of the X-Men, and used their powers to shut down the supercollider before Swarm could set it off. With the project abandoned, Mathieson saw to it that the area would be re-zoned, to prevent the project from being restarted.

(Secret Defenders#25) - As Dr. Druid became allied with the demon Slorioth, Mathieson registered a large amount of inexplicable extranormal activity. He hoped that Dr. Druid would be able to manage it, unaware he was partially to blame.
