Powers/Abilities: Crimson was a trained S.H.I.E.L.D. field agent and Head of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Magic Operations Division. He was a follower of Cyttorak and could proficiently wield the Crimson Bands of Cyttorak. He knew various enchantments, including a cloaking spell.

History:

(She-Hulk II#16) - Crimson was with other S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, including Cheesecake and Quartermain, blocking off the area where She-Hulk, alongside Wolverine, was battling a Wendigo. When Elizabeth Twoyoungmen (Talisman) and several other Sarcee natives approached to offer assistance, Crimson and Quartermain blocked them, despite Talisman's mystical persistence. He later wove the Crimson Bands of Cyttorak around the temporarily disabled Wendigo.

(She-Hulk II#17) - As part of the Hulkbusters team, he helped stop various old Hulk foes, including the Glob, Toad-Men and the U-Foes, using the Crimson Bands to contain his opponents before they were shipped off to Project Achilles. After containing Zzzax, the Hulkbusters returned to their S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier and were met by the disgruntled Gaffer and taken to Director Tony Stark. However, Zzzax escaped and took over the Helicarrier's defense systems, likewise affecting LMD Agent Cheesecake, who knocked Crimson out. Zzzax was neutralized and Crimson recovered.

(She-Hulk II#18) - With LMD sexpionage Agent Beefcake standing in for She-Hulk, the Hulkbusters headed to New Mexico where a new gamma signal had been found. Crimson admired Beefcake's design. The four arrived at an old secret base of Bruce Banner's; Crimson cast a cloaking spell to hide them from surveillance systems. They found the Leader and stopped him launching an attack, although it meant that Crimson had to cast a powerful enchantment that drew heavily on his lifeforce.

(She-Hulk II#19) - Crimson, Cheesecake and Quartermain escorted the Leader to the first day of his trial and again the next day. However, momentarily distracted, Crimson went under the mind control of the Leader and released his shackles, allowing the villain to stop a preprogrammed rescue by his Humanoids.
