Number 5 was a Nazi agent under the command of Rathcone during World War II. Rathcone's assignment was to eliminate high ranking officials within the United States military. Number 5 was tasked with murdering an Admiral Perkins, who was supposed to give a lecture that very night. When the curtains opened, the audience at the lecture were horrified by the sight of the dead admirals's body. Two of the audience members happened to be Captain America and Bucky who quickly changed into their costumes and went in pursuit of Perkins' killer. Number 5 gets the drop on Bucky, but is quickly defeated when Captain America joins the fight. Initially refusing to talk, Number 5 is convinced by Captain America to tell them all he knows. At that exact moment, however, he is struck dead by the bullet of another Nazi agent.[1]
