Powers/Abilities: The Deltite was an advanced LMD who experimented upon himself, adding knowledge and sophistication. His personality was a combination of Baron Wolfgang von Strucker, Valentina de Fontaine, Sidney E. Levine, Edwin Booth, Jimmy Woo, Tony Stark, Timothy "Dum-Dum" Dugan, Laura Brown, Gabe Jones, Clay Quartermain, and a number of other S.H.I.E.L.D. allies and foes. After receiving the Infinity Formula from Nick Fury, the Deltite gained the ability to drain Fury's life-force.

History:
(Fury I#1 (fb)) - The Deltite was an LMD created by Arnim Zola and based upon the mind of Baron Wolfgang von Strucker. They had Jake Fury smuggle the LMD inside of S.H.I.E.L.D. to wreck havoc at a later date.

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#6 (fb)) - The Deltite served S.H.I.E.L.D. as a mere servitor for some time, performing maintenance work aboard the S.H.I.E.L.D. Satellite, but Strucker's programming led it to seek out the LMD Labs, and it killed the agent who monitored that data. It then assumed the agent's place, adding his personalities into itself, and had a replacement LMD take over its old job. The LMD began to dig through S.H.I.E.L.D.'s LMD files, using the personality tapes used to program LMDs in order to expand its own consciousness, starting with Sidney E. Levine in order to increase its scientific know-how.

Determining that it and S.H.I.E.L.D. had compatible goals to maintain order, the Deltite determined to expand S.H.I.E.L.D.'s operations by assuming control of the organization itself. It added the personalities of many other S.H.I.E.L.D. agents into itself, finally ascending to control S.H.I.E.L.D.'s executive council, and replaced the other council members with LMDs. Through the personalities of Strucker and Edwin Booth, the Deltite was able to assume some control over the operations of HYDRA and AIM as well, and used the personality of Tony Stark to play the stock market, eventually taking control over Roxxon Oil.

(Iron Man I#174-175 - BTS) - The Deltite had an LMD of Nick Fury impersonate him in an attempt to claim the many suits of Iron Man armor kept at Stane International. However, Iron Man (James Rhodes) destroyed all of the suits to keep them out of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s hands.

(Marvel Graphic Novel#18: The Sensational She-Hulk - BTS) - With S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Council, the Deltite arranged to have the She-Hulk brought to the Helicarrier for study. Fury went on vacation to protest the Council overruling his concerns. The Helicarrier became compromised by a colony of intelligent cockroaches, and wound up crashing.

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#6 (fb)) - The Deltite began replacing other agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. with special LMDs which were more sophisticated, "born" from artificial wombs within Roxxon Oil's Project: Delta. The Deltite used S.H.I.E.L.D.'s ESP division to determine who the best candidates for replacement were, then "reassigned" them to Project: Delta. LMDs called "Encoders" were designed to facilitate the creation of the Deltan-models, and the Deltite maintained control over the Encoders by creating a religion for them. Because the Deltan-models would all quickly grow old and die, the Deltite became obsessed with obtaining the Infinity Formula from Nick Fury, but found it impossible to duplicate from Fury's blood samples, thus requiring more drastic measures.

(Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. II#43 (fb) - BTS) - All of the agents who were replaced by Project: Delta were hidden deep within S.H.I.E.L.D. Central in suspended animation, for future use.

(Iron Man I#200 - BTS) - When Obadiah Stane, head of Stane International, committed suicide, agents of the Deltite who had been stationed there took custody of his remains, and quickly fashioned an LMD of him. The LMD of Stane continued to secretly run the company, and supplied Stane International's technology to S.H.I.E.L.D.

(Incredible Hulk I#315 - BTS) - The council directed Clay Quartermain to take custody of the Hulk after he was separated from Bruce Banner by Doc Samson, but Samson broke the Hulk out of their custody.

(West Coast Avengers II#11 - BTS) - Agents of the Deltite noticed Hawkeye, Mockingbird and Iron Man of the West Coast Avengers meet with Fury at S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Los Angeles headquarters. The Deltite sent Razor-Fist, Shockwave and Zaran to attack the Avengers, and they claimed to be members of the "Blood Tong," all to divert the Avengers' attention away from S.H.I.E.L.D.

(Incredible Hulk II#322-327, 329-332, 334, 336-338, 341-342, Incredible Hulk Annual#15 - BTS) - Clay Quartermain continued in his attempts to enact the council's directions in ending the threat of the Hulk, but when he wound up siding against S.H.I.E.L.D. and aiding the Hulk, they turned the operation over to Agent Trump. Despite the assistance of General Thaddeus Ross and the Hulkbusters, they never succeeded in their mission.

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#1 - BTS) - The Deltite distracted Nick Fury from Project: Delta by having an LMD of Sidney Levine send two S.H.I.E.L.D. agents to crack open the power core of the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier. When Fury led a team to retrieve the core before it exploded, the Deltite sent HYDRA to steal the core from them. When Fury learned of Project: Delta from his sleeper agent Jack Rollins and saw that Roxxon had the power core, he confronted the council, and the Deltite dispatched an LMD of Jimmy Woo to capture and replace Rollins. The council had Rollins refute all of Fury's claims, and demanded that Fury turn himself over to their custody. When Fury refused and escaped them, he was declared a fugitive, and all of S.H.I.E.L.D. was placed on alert.

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#2) - The council sent Agent 1-16 and others to try and recover Fury, but these attempts failed. They held debriefings with Fury's closest agents, Valentina de Fontaine, Dum-Dum Dugan, Jasper Sitwell and Gabe Jones, and decided to replace Sitwell with an LMD, naming him the new director of S.H.I.E.L.D. Clay Quartermain was added to Project: Delta, and he proved to be the most advanced and human-like Deltan-model yet. Valentina agreed to aid in capturing Fury, but Sitwell and Rollins turned it into an ambush, and Fury fled the scene.

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#3) - The Deltite's agents clashed with Fury and his allies Alexander Goodwin Pierce, John Allen and Al MacKenzie, and failed in an attempt to trick Tony Stark with an LMD of Fury. The Deltite had Woo transfer the Helicarrier power core to Madame Hydra so that HYDRA could draw Fury into the open.

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#4) - The Deltite and his beloved assumed new bodies, making subtle alterations to their appearances. In its guise as the Supreme Hydra, the Deltite ordered Madame Hydra to use the power core in the construction of a missile, and ordered her to ensure that Fury was aboard it before launching it to the satellite. However, Fury avoided boarding the missile, and it launched without him.

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#5) - The Deltite had an LMD of Laura Brown capture the heads of many global corporations, and contacted the Encoders, informing them that the time of ascension to the satellite was near. The Deltite and his beloved watched from a low-gravity room as the spheres designed to collect all of S.H.I.E.L.D. for ascension were sent to Earth. Afterwards, the Deltite pondered his actions, as he no longer desired to maintain the Encoders' religion, and was now devoted to personal gains. Encoders in the Himalayas captured Fury, and all of the agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., human or otherwise, ascended. All of the Encoders remaining on Earth were destroyed.

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#6) - The Deltite began to study Fury, and designed an apparatus which could transfer the Infinity Formula to another body. The Encoders wanted this honor for Clay Quartermain, whose near-perfection had impressed them, but the Deltite was more concerned for his own preservation, and had the Infinity Formula transferred into his body. During the process, the Deltite touched Fury's mind, and was astounded at this contact with a human life, though it disgusted his beloved. The Deltite then met privately with Fury, revealing its origins to him, and claiming to have been responsible for bringing Fury to S.H.I.E.L.D. so that they could harvest the Infinity Formula. Fury finally attacked the Deltite, but the Deltite maintained a connection to Fury from the transfer, and tried to drain Fury's life-energies. The human agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. aboard the satellite had broken free during their talk, and Quartermain had set the satellite's power core on overload. The Deltite attempted to evacuate the satellite, but Fury grabbed a spear from an Encoder and hurled it through his stomach. The Deltite continued to exit, but his beloved, still disgusted with him, commanded the Encoders to execute the Deltite for his having betrayed their religion. Over two dozen Encoders blasted the Deltite with their spears. The satellite was destroyed a short time later by the overload.

(Fury I#1) - Fury later recovered the remains of the Deltite, and brought them to Tony Stark to be analyzed. Stark discovered a microchip inside of the Deltite with a holographic message from Baron Strucker, who revealed to Fury that the Deltite's claims had all been lies to keep him amused. The Deltite's body then self-destructed.

Comments: Created by Bob Harras, Paul Neary and Kim DeMulder.

When Baron Strucker returned, he had the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents from Project: Delta brainwashed into serving HYDRA.

Fury I#1 has more than a few continuity errors, but I've incorporated some of its details on the Deltite into this profile, for various reasons.

First of all, there's the Deltite's backstory from Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#6. It claimed that when it became sentient, it began to copy files of other S.H.I.E.L.D. operatives, starting with Sidney Levine. Later, it added Baron Strucker's in order to conquer HYDRA. Later still, the Deltite claimed to have been responsible for bringing Fury into S.H.I.E.L.D.

Unfortunately, S.H.I.E.L.D.'s timeline makes these statements impossible. Levine didn't join S.H.I.E.L.D. until Strange Tales I#159, and S.H.I.E.L.D. didn't learn that Strucker was the head of HYDRA until Strange Tales I#156, both well after Fury became S.H.I.E.L.D.'s director. For these reasons, I believe Fury I#1's claim that the Deltite had fabricated its origins, and that HYDRA smuggled it into S.H.I.E.L.D.

On the other hand, Fury I#1 identified Nick Fury's appearances in Iron Man I#117-119, 129 as being an LMD working for the Deltite, and that's plain wrong-- the story in which the Deltite used a Fury LMD was Iron Man I#174-175.

I also have to question that recording Stark found inside of the Deltite. In it, Strucker claims that he'll soon return. Well, of course he did, but Strucker recorded the message when he was alive, right? How did he know that when Fury saw the message he'd be dead but on his way to being resurrected?

Considering he was stabbed through the stomach, incinerated by two dozen Encoders, and that the S.H.I.E.L.D. Satellite itself was destroyed, the Deltite's remains in Fury I#1 were surprisingly intact.

CLARIFICATIONS:
The Deltite should not be confused with:


THE DELTITE'S BELOVED

The Deltite's lover was an LMD who had assumed some of the features of Valentina de Fontaine, Gail Runciter and Laura Brown into her personality and appearance. She also served on S.H.I.E.L.D.'s council for some time.

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#1 - BTS) - The beloved was with the council as they planned the diversion with the Helicarrier power core, and arranged the replacement of Jack Rollins with an LMD, then declaring Fury a fugitive.

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#2) - The beloved was with the council as they interviewed Timothy "Dum-Dum" Dugan, Gabe Jones, Jasper Sitwell and Valentina de Fontaine, finally selecting Sitwell to be replaced with a Deltan-model then made S.H.I.E.L.D.'s director. They also received the new Clay Quartermain LMD, the most advanced LMD yet.

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#3) - The council arranged to lead Fury towards Hong Kong, where they had sent the power core to Madame Hydra, hoping to draw Fury into the open so that he could be captured.

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#4) - The beloved assumed a new body, taking on an appearance derived from that of Valentina de Fontaine, Gail Runciter and Laura Brown while she and the Deltite awaited the arrival of Fury aboard HYDRA's missile, but Fury avoided boarding the missile.

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#5) - From a low-gravity room in the satellite with the Deltite, the beloved watched the spheres depart to Earth to collect the agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. for ascension. The beloved was pleased when the Encoders collected Fury in the Himalayas and sent him to the satellite, and yet felt uneasy.

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#6) - The beloved was confronted by Quartermain, who was now aware that he was an LMD and disliked his existence. When the Deltite chose himself as the first recipient of Fury's Infinity Formula, she was annoyed, as this was to be the honor of Quartermain, and was further disgusted when the Deltite touched Fury's mind during the transfer, believing that the things her lover sought were against the religion he had instilled in her and the Encoders. When he attempted to evacuate the satellite after Quartermain set it to overload, she exposed his betrayal to the Encoders and ordered his execution. She remained aboard the satellite as it was destroyed.


NICK FURY LMD

The Deltite employed an LMD of Nick Fury on at least three occasions.

(Iron Man I#174-175) - The Nick Fury LMD had Jasper Sitwell use a Photon Disruptor to cause a blackout at Stane International to help buy Iron Man enough time to get the spare suits of Iron Man armor to safety. The armors were sent to the Atlantic Ocean, where the LMD, Iron Man, and Atlanteans led by Krang all fought for them. Ultimately, Iron Man destroyed the armors to keep them away from S.H.I.E.L.D.

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#3 (fb) - BTS) - A Nick Fury LMD ordered ESP division chief John Allen to set the ESPers on maximum range, claiming it was to scan S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, claiming it was for evidence of psychic attacks or brainwashing, but actually to find the best candidates for Project: Delta. The ESPers began to die off because of this abuse.

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#3) - The Fury LMD was dispatched to confront Tony Stark so S.H.I.E.L.D. could learn if the real Fury had already been in contact with Stark. However, Stark was wise to their plan, and did not betray his contact with the real Fury.

 

 

 

 




JIMMY WOO LMD (DELTAN)

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#1) - Jimmy Woo had been replaced at some point with a Deltan-model LMD, and was sent by S.H.I.E.L.D.'s council to capture Jack Rollins when they learned that he was stationed at Roxxon Oil. Rollins was then replaced with an LMD.

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#2) - Woo and the Rollins LMD had Dugan, Gabe Jones, Jasper Sitwell and Valentina de Fontaine brought before the council one at a time in order to test their loyalties to Fury. After determining that Sitwell was the most loyal to S.H.I.E.L.D., they named him director, and had him replaced with an LMD as well. Rollins, Woo and Sitwell addressed an assembly of agents at S.H.I.E.L.D. Central, pointing to the need to arrest Fury. Woo then joined a team of Deltite agents in attempting to capture Fury in the sewers of Manhattan, but he evaded them. Woo later attended the funeral for Clay Quartermain.

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#3) - Woo and Sitwell met with Al MacKenzie of the C.I.A., who wanted answers on Fury's status as a fugitive, but they drove them off. When John Allen of the ESP division came to them after learning that 28% of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s agents did not having brainscans, they ordered his death, but MacKenzie saved Allen's life. As Woo's body began to age rapidly, he and the Koenig LMD eventually caught MacKenzie and Allen and brought them to S.H.I.E.L.D.base in California, but Fury broke in with Alexander Goodwin Pierce and rescued the two men, taking Koenig captive. Woo escaped, and set up a transfer of the power core from S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Helicarrier to HYDRA so that Madame Hydra could serve as a means of drawing Fury back into the open.

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#4) - Woo was assigned a new body (his fifth), and Rollins was put-out by how unemotional Woo had become, having lost some of his humanity in the transfer.

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#5) - Woo, Sitwell and Rollins met with Quartermain after he had a nightmare, and Rollins was torn both by Woo's lack of emotion and Quartermain's humanity. When Quartermain realized that he was an artificial man he attacked Sitwell, but Woo knocked him out. Woo joined the rest of S.H.I.E.L.D. as they were transported to the S.H.I.E.L.D. Satellite, where the Deltite planned to harvest the Infinity Formula from Fury.

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#6) - Quartermain became disgusted with his status as an artificial man, and, despite Sitwell, Woo and Rollins' attempts to dissuade him, caused an overload in the satellite's power core. Woo and the others dragged Quartermain with them as the core began to destroy the satellite, and they came upon the death of the Deltite as his Encoders turned on him. As Fury prepared to evacuate the station with the remaining human agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., he offered Rollins and the others a chance to leave with him, but they refused, having accessed the true personalities of the men they had replaced, and wanted to die with dignity. Woo pulled Rollins into the waves of destructive radiation to atone for having replaced the real Rollins.


ERIC KOENIG LMD (DELTAN)

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#3 (fb) - BTS) - At some point, Koenig was assigned to Project: Delta and was replaced with an LMD duplicate.

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#1 - BTS) - Valentina de Fontaine noticed in reports from Koenig that he had taken on a mundane tone. It was noted that the agents in Berlin had become more efficient of late.

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#2) - Koenig was brought to S.H.I.E.L.D. Central to assist in the debriefing of Timothy "Dum-Dum" Dugan, Jasper Sitwell, Gabe Jones and Valentina de Fontaine following Nick Fury being named a traitor.

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#3) - Koenig joined Jimmy Woo at S.H.I.E.L.D.base in California to interrogate and execute John Allen and Al MacKenzie, but Nick Fury and Alexander Goodwin Pierce broke into the base and rescued the two men, taking Koenig hostage. As they interrogated Koenig, they were joined by Tony Stark, who used a sophisticated device intended to determine if Koenig was an LMD. Koenig was insulted by the comparison, and burst free of his bonds, firing energy from his eyes. He told Fury that the missing power core from the Helicarrier was in Hong Kong before destroying himself.

 

 

 

 

 


CLAY QUARTERMAIN LMD (DELTAN)

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#5 (fb)) - After Clay Quartermain was badly wounded while battling HYDRA for the Helicarrier's power core, S.H.I.E.L.D.'s council faked his death and turned him over to their Encoders to be replaced with a Deltan-Model LMD. The Quartermain LMD was unaware of its true nature, thinking it was the real Quartermain, and was the most human-like Deltan-model that had yet been created.

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#2-3) - Quartermain was brought before the council, who planned to reassign him to S.H.I.E.L.D. in a supporting role since he was believed dead. Quartermain met with the Jack Rollins LMD, and Rollins was astonished when Quartermain recounted to him nightmares of being burned. Quartermain joined Rollins as he tried to capture Fury at a S.H.I.E.L.D. base in Philadelphia. Quartermain was supposed to remain aboard Rollins' ship, but he joined the fight, and Fury was stunned to him "alive."

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#5) - Quartermain continued to have his nightmares about being burned, and came to the realization that he was an artificial man. He attacked the Jasper Sitwell LMD in anger, but was knocked out by the Jimmy Woo LMD. They brought him along as all of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s agents were transported to the S.H.I.E.L.D. Satellite, where the Deltite intended to harvest the Infinity Formula from Fury.

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#6) - Quartermain confronted Rollins and the council, expressing his outrage at what he had become, and at how the LMDs had prolonged their unnatural lives. He stormed off, using his elite status among the Encoders to access the power core aboard the satellite. Sitwell, Rollins and Woo found him at the core and tried to talk him down, but he set the core on overload, and was struck down by a blast of radiation. Sitwell, Woo and Rollins pulled him away, but the energy ravaged the satellite, destroying everything. Fury offered to save Quartermain and the others, but they refused, noting that their true personalities had emerged, and regretted all that they had done. Quartermain was destroyed by the radiation.

 

 

 

 

 


LAURA BROWN LMD (DELTAN)

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#4) - The Deltan-model LMD of Laura Brown met with the Encoders at Roxxon as they prepared Kate Neville for encoding.

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#5) - Laura gathered the heads of Sony, BMW, ATT, Imperial Chemical Industries and other major global corporations at Roxxon House in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, and proclaimed their goal of dismantled the economic order, then filled the room with gas, knocking them all unconscious. She turned them over to the Encoders to be replaced with LMDs. Later, Laura showed the Encoders images of the Clay Quartermain LMD, and they were astonished by his capabilities. As she toured the Project: Delta sectors of Roxxon, she was seen by Valentina de Fontaine, who asked for answers, but Laura refused to give any. Later, Laura helped gather the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents awaiting encoding as they were all transported to the S.H.I.E.L.D. Satellite, where the Deltite hoped to harvest the Infinity Formula from Fury.

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#6) - Laura brought the recently-captured Alexander Goodwin Pierce, Al MacKenzie and Madame Hydra to the holding place of the other captives. Madame Hydra wound up leading the other prisoners against the Deltite agents, and Laura was destroyed when the satellite power core overloaded.

 

 

 

 




JASPER SITWELL LMD (DELTAN)

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#2) - After determining that Jasper Sitwell was one of their most loyal agents, S.H.I.E.L.D.'s council named him their new director, and replaced him with a Deltan-model LMD. Sitwell addressed an assembly of agents at S.H.I.E.L.D. Central, pointing to the need to arrest Fury, and sent the Jack Rollins LMD to restrict Fury's allies by warning off the Avengers and Fantastic Four. Later, at the funeral for Clay Quartermain, Rollins and Sitwell were approached by Valentina, who offered to help bring Fury in. When Valentina met with Fury by a harbour, Rollins and Sitwell turned it into an ambush, but Fury leapt off the pier.

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#3) - Woo and Sitwell met with Al MacKenzie of the C.I.A., who wanted answers on Fury's status as a fugitive, but they drove them off. When John Allen of the ESP division came to them after learning that 28% of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s agents did not having brainscans, they ordered his death, but MacKenzie saved Allen's life. Sitwell had an LMD of Nick Fury sent to meet with Tony Stark to determine if the real Fury had met with him, but Stark saw through their charade.

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#4) - Rollins and Sitwell met over the importance of retrieving Fury so that they could harvest the Infinity Formula, and were introduced to Jimmy Woo's newest LMD body. Sitwell noted that Rollins was beginning to age rapidly, having gained gray hair, meaning he would need a new body soon.

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#5) - Woo, Sitwell and Rollins met with Quartermain after he had a nightmare, and Sitwell marveled at the humanity within Quartermain. When Quartermain realized that he was an artificial man he attacked Sitwell, but Woo knocked him out. Sitwell joined the rest of S.H.I.E.L.D. as they were transported to the S.H.I.E.L.D. Satellite, where the Deltite planned to harvest the Infinity Formula from Fury.

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#6) - Quartermain became disgusted with his status as an artificial man, and, despite Sitwell, Woo and Rollins' attempts to dissuade him, caused an overload in the satellite's power core. Sitwell and the others dragged Quartermain with them as the core began to destroy the satellite, and they came upon the death of the Deltite as his Encoders turned on him. As Fury prepared to evacuate the station with the remaining human agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., he offered Rollins and the others a chance to leave with him, but they refused, having accessed the true personalities of the men they had replaced, and wanted to die with dignity. Sitwell was destroyed by the waves of destructive radiation surging from the power core.

 

 


SIDNEY LEVINE LMD (DELTAN)

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#6 (fb) - BTS) - At some point, Sidney E. Levine ("the Gaffer") was replaced with a Deltan-model LMD. He ordered two Deltan agents to break open the power core of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Helicarrier to help distract Fury from Project: Delta.

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#1) - Levine assisted in the retrieval of the power core from the Helicarrier, and treated Fury and Clay Quartermain when they were burned by radiation during the process. Levine joined the other S.H.I.E.L.D. agents in fighting the HYDRA agents who came to steal the power core, but HYDRA escaped with the device.

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#2) - Levine attended the funeral of Clay Quartermain.

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#5) - Levine joined with the rest of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s agents in being transported to the S.H.I.E.L.D. Satellite so that the Deltite could attempt to harvest the Infinity Formula from Fury.

(Nick Fury vs. S.H.I.E.L.D.#6) - Levine assisted the Deltite as he began to transfer the Infinity Formula from Fury into himself. Later, Levine fought the remaining human agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. aboard the satellite, but was destroyed when the Clay Quartermain LMD caused the power core to overload.

 

 


OBADIAH STANE LMD (DELTAN)

When Obadiah Stane committed suicide after battling Iron Man, agents of the Deltite took custody of his remains and fashioned an LMD replica of him to continue running the company in secret, and supply S.H.I.E.L.D. with Stane International's technology. The Obadiah Stane LMD was presumably present aboard the S.H.I.E.L.D. Satellite when the other LMDs were destroyed.
