Tod Radcliffe was the head of operations of the intelligence agency S.T.R.I.K.E. (Special Tactical Reserve for International Key Emergencies) working under Lance Hunter. Thanks to his position he was able to hold private meetings with the prime minister himself. Unfortunately, he was also a traitor working for the Red Skull, secretly communicating with him via a telephone in his wrist watch. Radcliffe bombed Braddock Manor, the home of Captain Britain, but was later killed by American agent Nick Fury using a poison dart fired from his cigar. In Radcliffe's case, passive smoking really did prove fatal.

In Radcliffe's first ever panel, when he picked Nick Fury up in his flying car, his chin was clean-shaven. By the time the pair had arrived at 10 Downing Street, Radcliffe had grown a beard.
