Benjamin "Benny" Pollack was a former bank robber, who became a researcher for S.H.I.E.L.D., accompanied by his girlfriend Claire Wise.

The pair had found a Chitauri weapon in the aftermath of the battle for New York, and after Benny discovered how to operate it they used it to embark on a crime spree. The pair were found by Agent Jasper Sitwell, who rather than try to bring them to justice, inducted them into S.H.I.E.L.D. as a researcher and an assistant instead.[1]

His status following S.H.I.E.L.D.'s dissolution is unknown.


Benny has exhibited a technical aptitude sufficient to get a piece of alien technology to function when trained scientists were at a loss to operate it.

  • Benny's name, along the name of his girlfriend (Claire), is an homage to the infamous robbers Bonnie and Clyde.
