    English agent Commander Lance Hunter was the director of the STRIKE intelligence agency at the time when the Red Skull kidnapped the British Prime Minister James Callaghan. Hunter worked with his American counterpart, SHIELD's Nick Fury, plus Captain America and Captain Britain, to rescue Callaghan and stop the Skull's attempted coup. Hunter later unsuccessfully tried to woo Captain Britain into working for STRIKE. After leaving STRIKE, Hunter moved on to other roles within the intelligence community, and subsequently, having risen to the rank of Commodore, he was involved in drafting the British version of the Superhuman Registration Act. A short while later he was promoted to JiC (Joint Intelligence Chief), head of all of Britain's security services, including MI5, MI6 and MI13.
