Having the ability to smash and detonate atoms, Ahmed Noor was imprisoned at Project P.E.G.A.S.U.S. until being freed by Nick Fury. Noor was on Fury's list of Caterpillars, untapped superhumans that he was using to recruit for his Secret Warriors. Noor was drafted to Team Black, a team run by Alexander Pierce comprised of the more troublesome Caterpillars.  


Ahmed Noor  was created by Jonathan Hickman and first illustrated by Alessandro Vitti in Secret Warriors. The character was first mentioned in the back matter of the first issue of Secret Warriors, which featured Nick Fury's list of Caterpillars. Noor did not actually appear until midway into the series, where Team Black appeared for one story arc. 

Major Story Arcs  

Last Ride of the Howling Commandos  

Ahmed Noor  and the rest of Team Black were deployed to take part in a joint attack on   HYDRA 's Hell's Heaven base in China along with the Howling Commandos PMC. The operation was a success with Team Black taking point on the infiltration of the base, allowing for a bomb to be detonated inside that reduced it all to burning rubble. With their mission complete, Team Black made their own separate exit from China apart from the Howling Commandos, not realizing that the Howling Commandos would suffer a devastating battle against HYDRA forces after they left.  

Wheels Within Wheels  

Having won his secret war against HYDRA and Leviathan, Nick Fury pulled together all of the surviving members of the Secret Warriors and Howling Commandos together into a new organization sponsored by the United Nations. This included Noor and the rest of Team Black, who now served in this organization under the overall command of Daisy Johnson.

Powers and Abilities 

Ahmed Noor is described as an atom smasher and appears to use this ability to create controlled explosions at will. He is seen detonating several HYDRA agents in one encounter. 
Presumably, Noor has received the same training in espionage and combat as other members of the Secret Warriors.
