(Machine Man I#18 (fb) - BTS) - Canadian operative Agent K was assigned to investigate claims that the android Machine Man deliberately sent the Hulk (Bruce Banner) into Canada, where the green goliath destroyed prime tracts of Canadian timberland.

(Machine Man I#18) - Agent K was briefed by a Canadian Government minister and handed the dossier of the information received from an anonymous source with hints that connected Machine Man to the U.S. Government. With the government seeking an explanation and possible compensation, Agent K was sent to Canada's Department H where he met with super-powered agents from Alpha Flight: speedster siblings Aurora and Northstar, and powerhouse Sasquatch; all were given sonic transmitters for communication. The team undertook a covert mission to New York, traveling by car. While Agent K carefully examined the paperwork and investigated the physical sources, the Alpha Flight members fought Machine Man. Agent K stealthily broke into goverment offices at night in pursuit of information until he discovered that American Senator Mile Brickman had crafted the dossier so that Canada would take an aggressive stand against Machine Man, thereby aiding the senator's political aspirations given his stance against the robot. Agent K aborted Alpha Flight's mission and set about to make Brickman pay for his inteference.
