(Team America#1 (fb) - BTS) - William Darvin, a Hydra agent, was placed in charge of a project called "New Genesis" under the front of the business called Universal Technologies.

(Team America#1) - The Marauder snuck into Universal Technologies and managed to delete names and dossiers from the "New Genesis" file, escaping on his motorcycle. Johnston reported the loss of the intel back to Darvin, who furiously demanded that Johnston find out what names had been deleted even as he secretly contemplated putting Johnston to death for this failure. Darvin reported in to his Hydra superior, who assigned Darvin responsibility for Operation: Daytona. Darvin was assigned to kidnap Masatake "Pops" Huramoto and his plans for a new experimental motorcycle, which would be unveiled during an Unlimited Class Racing event in Daytona, Florida. As the race began, Darvin made sure his armed men were ready to complete the mission, instructing them to capture Huramoto when he won the competition. When the Masked Marauder won instead, the Hydra agents were confused, and Darvin did his best to capture Huramoto anyway, using a vortex beam aboard a flying Hydra ship. The Masked Marauder attacked and the ship crashed. Darvin determined that one of three riders was the Masked Marauder, either R.U. Reddy (Winthrop Roan, Jr), Wolf, or Honcho (James McDonald). Darvin approached with a loaded gun and explained who he was before he opened fire, but they overpowered him, so Darvin killed himself by biting down on a cyanide tooth.
