Agent Zero

Daniel Henney as Agent Zero in X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009)

Who he is: Agent Zero

His power: His vaguely defined abilities include flawless marksmanship and enhanced speed, agility, and long-distance jumping.


His story: Agent Zero is Col. William Stryker’s right-hand man in X-Men Origins: Wolverine and is the only member of Stryker’s Team X who remains publicly associated with Stryker in the years after the group disbands. While Victor Creed is killing off old members of the team for Stryker, Zero stands by his boss’ side as he tries to convince Logan to return to action, but siding with the bad guys doesn’t keep Zero alive. After Logan undergoes the procedure that bonds adamantium to his skeleton, he escapes Stryker’s facility and hides out in a farm, slowly adjusting to his new condition thanks to the help of an elderly couple, which Agent Zero kills when he finally tracks down his target. A missile intended to incapacitate Wolverine ends up sending him soaring through the air and straight into Agent Zero’s helicopter, and although Agent Zero survives the ensuing crash, he doesn’t survive the explosion Wolverine creates when he uses his claw to ignite the stream of fuel pouring out of the aircraft.

Played by: Daniel Henney

Currently, Agent Zero is: His status in unknown following the timeline changes of X-Men: Days Of Future Past, but he’s absent from Stryker’s side when the villain returns in X-Men: Apocalypse, so it’s possible that Agent Zero is on a different path.

Where will we see him next? There are no future appearances planned for Agent Zero, but he could potentially show up in Deadpool 2 to mess with his old Team X buddy.
