named for the president (not the the bridge), George Washington
Bridge left his mercenary days behind to put his skills to work
for SHIELD, however his long association with the mutant Cable
seems to never be far behind.
During his mercenary days, Bridge fought alongside Cable and together formed
the mercenary group WildPack. Fighting the likes of the Mandarin, this
team of mercenaries led by Cable included in its ranks Domino, Grizzly, Hammer,
Kane (now Weapon X II), and Bridge, warriors who felt uncomfortable working in
any rigid, sanctioned system. Cable and Bridge forged a
bond fighting in Asia, Wakanda, and Europe, Bridge
being the one of the few who knew anything of Cable's true nature. The team later
changed the name of the team to SixPack for fear of threatened legal action
by Silver Sable's mercenary team, also called the Wild Pack. Little is known
about the operation of this team. Most or all of their missions were paid for
by unknown benefactors and most or all records of their activities have been
deemed classified by both the American and Canadian governments. The team disbanded
after confronting Stryfe on a mission to retrieve a disk containing important
information and Cable became a wanted man while Bridge joined SHIELD.
Bridge's most notable missions (and failures); he sought to
apprehend the rogue X-Force, lead by Cable. Bridge put together
a team known as Weapon Prime, all with an axe to grind against
Cable, including former SixPacker Grizzly. Together Weapon
Prime engaged Cable and his team of young mutants, but in their
initial skirmish, Cable escaped SHIELD. Bridge also sought
to reinstate the "Super Agents" program, however this initiative
met with with unintended disastrous results as most of the
agents turned out to be HYDRA moles.
the "death" of Nick Fury, Bridge was appointed director of SHIELD,
following an interim period where various sub commanders were running
the agency including Scorpio and the Countessa. His long association
with mutants lead to Bridge commissioning the mutant Kitty Pride
as an agent for a short time. As director of SHIELD, Bridge helped
ease the vendetta against Frank Castle for what the world believed
to be the murder of Nick Fury. Bridge booted Fury's son out of the
agency and made sure of keeping the agency's hands clean of any revenge
against Castle. Bridge was aboard the helicarrier when it was shot
down by Sentinels in Manhattan harbor. Together with the surviving
SHIELD agents and the Punisher, they fended off attempts by gangs
to strip the carrier of its weapons. .
Nick Fury's return to SHIELD (and the living), Bridge rescinded his
directorship and returned to the rank and file of SHIELD, for a time
serving in the Washington D.C. branch. While there Bridge became
aware of a plot to use Cable to power the Nemesis project by SHIELD's
notorious EXCETCHOP subdivision. Bridge helped blow the lid off the
project to the public.
Following the return of Cable's space station, Greymalkin, now named Providence,
SHIELD and the X-Men teamed up to counter Cable. Bridge formed a new Six Pack
to bring Cable down on his base on Providence. Following a 48 hour ultimatum
from Cable to rid all its weapons an all out assault is launched. Eventually
it takes the Silver Surfer to finally bring Cable down, however Cable lobotomizes
his higher telekinetic functions and Deadpool is blamed for it. Bridge and the
new SixPack came to collect Cable's body, but they became trapped in his mind
until Deadpool managed to heal Cable's mind, freeing them all. Despite Cable's
new image of a near global savior with a new island nation, Bridge continues
to harbor distrust for Cable.
Following the failure of the latest SixPack, Bridge resigned from SHIELD, converted
to Islam, and briefly returned to mercenary work with Domino before being talked
back into SHIELD by Jasper Sitwell. Assigned to track down and capture the Punisher,
Bridge was nearly successful but Castle managed an escape. Following this latest
incident, Bridge left SHIELD, tired of its red tape and worked as an independent
contractor for SHIELD, again in pursuit of the Punisher. Following Tony Stark
ascending the directorship of SHIELD from Nick Fury, Stark briefly cut all ties
due to his inability to capture the Punisher. Shortly thereafter Jasper Sitwell
brought Bridge back into the fold and soon the hunt for the Punisher began anew.
