History: (Captain America Annual#7 (fb)) - Bernard Worrell was a grad student who served under Dr. George Clinton, and followed him into the organization A.I.M. Worrell was present when the Cosmic Cube was first created, and along with Clinton, was one of the only members of A.I.M.'s ruling council who escaped from MODOK when he went mad after the Cube's creation.
Worrell eventually followed Clinton into the Blue A.I.M. faction which had turned against MODOK, but Clinton was later killed by the Red Skull and Hate-Monger, who stole his knowlege of the Cosmic Cube from him.
(Captain America Annual#7) - Worrell, now leader of the Blue A.I.M. faction, masterminded an assault upon Project: PEGASUS, to liberate the Cosmic Cube from them. They succeeded, and Worrell had his fellow heads of Blue A.I.M. manacled to keep them from taking the cube. Worrell used the cube in combat against the Aquarian and Captain America, and had the cube reshape the Earth into a technological wonderland. He assumed an astral form to assault the Aquarian and Captain America, finally sending the Aquarian to Tibet so that he could not protect Captain America. Worrell assumed a phyiscal form to destroy Captain America, but suddenly found the Cube was not obeying his wishes. When he attempted to force his will upon it, it turned on him, melting him into dust because of the hate it had taken from him. However, the Shaper of Worlds then arrived and quieted the Cosmic Cube, then used his own powers to restore reality to normal, including Worrell. The Shaper of Worlds explained to the three men that the Cosmic Cube was an entity like himself, and that it was now in the process of hatching into a new lifeform. Worrell watched as the Shaper took the Cube away with him to complete its birth.
