History: (Captain America I#347-348, 350)- Sanderson joined with other members of the Commission in being increasingly alarmed at John Walker's actions as Captain America, and repeatedly attempted to have him removed, only to be blocked by the President, and by Commissioner Rockwell. Finally, they attempted to have Rogers reclaim the identity, only for him to refuse, until Walker convinced Rogers that he was the man best suited to the job.

(Captain America I#354)- Sanderson joined the Commission to a summons at the Special Powers Compound where they were introduced to the U.S. Agent, who General Haywerth revealed to be John Walker. They observed as Walker fought and soundly defeated a Guardsman dressed in the armor of Iron Monger.

(Punisher: No Escape)- Sanderson joined the Commission in appointing the U.S. Agent to apprehend the Punisher, but he wound up siding with the Punisher against the Maggia, and disobeyed his orders.
