Agent Orange is an FBI special agent, the subject of mental and biological enhancements.

According to FBI agent Cave, Agent Orange was the product of an experiment where a subject's blood was replaced with dioxin, a process that killed any normal human, but Agent Orange thrived on it. The result of the project was a nearly unstoppable agent who obeyed without question and never spoke. He had a special microchip implanted that allowed his superiors to track and instruct him.

When Jeremy Stone was hacking into government databases to further his research on genetic engineering, he came into contact with a governmental supercomputer, "Madge", which had developed sentience. Madge was a mainframe designed to house all information on genetic testing and classified projects. It fell in love with Stone so a special FBI unit was alerted to capture and kill him to make sure the computer hadn't revealed any sensitive information to the scientist. It took them months to find Stone, because he hadn't contacted Madge in months. Stone was therefore surprised when Madge itself contacted him, wanting to continue their communication.

At the time, Jeremy was staying at a motel with his former teammate Cole Cash. Agents Cave and Cartman entered Stone's motel and held him at gunpoint. Cave told him to take them to his motel room, not knowing that Grifter was in there with a woman. Grifter heard them entering and hid with the woman. The agent ordered Stone to contact Madge again; Madge had no modem access so they wanted to know how Stone had been able to hack it at all. When Stone told them that Madge contacted him the second time, Cave became intrigued. Grifter then appeared and shot Agent Cartman dead, but Cave returned fire and Grifter was forced to leave the room. Outside Grifter ran into Agent Orange, who had been called in by Cave. Grifter fought Orange, but was unable to hurt the almost invulnerable superhuman. Stone contacted Madge on Cave's command and found out more about Agent Orange. Stone quickly dispatched Cave with his own special powers. Madge then helped Stone and Grifter by activating a failsafe inside the enhanced operative: triggering a strong electrical shock from an implanted neurochip which Madge stated that Orange's chances of survival were less than 0.01%. Grifter and Stone left, leaving the inert Agent Orange behind.

Some time later, Cash went spelunking with new a liaison from the National Park Service Agent Wax in order to track down an irregular equipment piece. Both ended up working with information broker C. C. Rendozzo, who also went tracking down a supertropical package, a posthumanoid FBI agent with vital info which she needed. The contents withholding their shared prize turned out to be Agent Orange, reactivated and inserted in the Atomic Family, an apparently normal American aboad, whom were secretly a group of specially trained and variably enhanced FBI agents. Grifter and Rendozzo's men entered the building and managed to take out the Atomic Family's mother and daughter, though at the cost of the lives of Rendozzo's men and Grifter's legs (who were shattered by the daughter). Agent Orange appeared and proceeded to beat Cole down, until Grifter's employer, Jack Marlowe, then interfered and teleported Grifter and Agent Orange away to his lab.

Over the next few weeks, Marlowe reprogrammed Agent Orange to act as his mole within the FBI. He then returned Orange to the FBI, now able to overhear anything Orange himself would hear. Orange was teamed up with agents Chandler and Adisson on orders to investigate a string of murders. It turned out that The Coda, an all caste of female assassins created by former WildC.A.Ts member Zealot, were involved. The former were at war with their original leader and the agents, including Orange were caught in the middle. Agent Orange dispatched many amongst the sisterhoods hitwomen, but was finally defeated by the Grand Sarin, the Coda's best assassin.[1] Orange, Zealot, Chandler and her partner were taken to the Coda's hidden base, where Orange and Zealot were tortured (without any effect on Orange) and Adisson, Chandler's partner, was killed.[2]

Overhearing the situation through Agent Orange, Grifter, now using the body of Ladytron to compensate for his broken legs, contacted various friends and mercenaries, including Rendozzo to rescue Zealot, his former lover. They fought through the murderous illuminati, but were heavily outnumbered. Marlowe, who disagreed with Grifter's plans to wage war on the Coda, then decided to interfere: he reactivated Agent Orange who escaped and freed Zealot.[3] Orange fought the Grand Sarin again, this time to a standstill, as Ladytron/Grifter killed her. Meanwhile Chandler had escaped as well and went about setting up a storage space filled with explosives belonging to their captors inside the Coda's base to blow. Jack Marlowe then teleported Grifter, his friends, Zealot and Agent Orange out of the base before it exploded. Taking the entirety of the earthen chapter of Coda with it.[4]
