First Appearance: Captain America (vol. 1) #167 (Nov. 1973): "Ashes to Ashes"
Number of Appearances: 1
Worked for: Yellow Claw
Note: Contessa stopped him from killing Nick Fury
An unnamed assassin was sent by his master, the villainous Yellow Claw, to kill an injured Nick Fury in his hospital room. He dressed as a nurse (complete with a wig) in his attempt. But Nick Fury's girlfriend, SHIELD agent Contessa Valentina, noticed the assassin's black shoes (something nurses don't wear, she noted) and rushed to stop the assassination attempt.
This unnamed assassin was clearly a zealot in his beliefs and in his devotion to the Yellow Claw. After the Contessa stopped him from killing Nick Fury, the assassin jabbed himsed with a fatally poisonous ring spike. While dying, he told her triumphantly: "In any event, my usefulness is at an end now that my mission is no longer a surprise! Ths uproar will bring your fellow agents, but no information shall they learn from me! May I serve Great Spirits after death as I served the Yellow Claw before it! All hail the new order!"
