My job. My mission. Is not to fear. And not to think. I execute orders and I eliminate others without prejudice.
~ Agent Zero

Agent Zero (real name: David North) is a supporting antagonist in the movie, X-Men Origins: Wolverine. He's a loyal servant/bodyguard towards William Stryker, and was part of Team X. Even before Zero and Logan became enemies, the two never got along.

In the film, he was portrayed by Daniel Henney (who also voiced Tadashi Hamada in Big Hero 6). In the video game adaptation, he was voiced by Robert Wu.

History

Not much is known about Zero's past. All is known is that he was recruited by Lieutenant William Stryker as one of the members of a group of mutants known as Team X. He, along with Blob, Bolt, Wraith, Deadpool, Sabretooth, and Wolverine, were assigned to find a metal substance in Africa, so that could, unknowingly, help Stryker create the Mutant Killer. Zero proved to be the most loyal of the seven as he remained by Stryker's side despite the other members, with the exception of Sabretooth, eventually leaving the team.

Six years after Logan left the team, William Stryker, along with Agent Zero, went to Canada to inform Logan that "someone" has been killing off their former team. Stryker offered Logan protection, but Logan wanted nothing to do with Stryker.

A few days later, after Logan's girlfriend Kayla was "killed" by Victor, and was humiliated by him as well, Logan, along with Stryker, Zero, and a large group of scientists went to Alkali Lake to implant the adamantium onto Logan's skeleton. After the bonding was successful, Agent Zero asked what they should do with Logan. To which Stryker replied that they should continue with Weapon XI, and that Logan should be terminated. However, thanks to Logan's heighten sense of hearing, he overheard their conversation. Enraged, Logan broke out and made his escape. Zero tried to shoot Logan down, but to no avail. After Logan managed to escape the base in Alkali Lake, Stryker ordered Zero to kill Logan.

The next day, Zero managed to track down Logan, taking shelter in a farm where an elderly couple lived. Zero decided to snipe down the two people. He then made up a lie to Stryker that Logan just killed the elderly couple, and had a helicopter bomb the farm. However, thanks to his quick reflexes, and accelerated healing factor, Logan managed to jump onto the motorcycle, and escape the burning barn. Zero demanded the Helicopter to pick him up, so he could keep a safe distance towards Logan. However, Logan managed to get onto the Helicopter and cause it to crash. Zero managed to survive the crash, but severely injured. After Logan threatened Stryker that once he's done with Victor and that he was next, Zero decided to mock Wolverine about how "innocent people die around him". As Logan walks away, he ignites a trail of fuel with his claws, causing the helicopter to explode and killing Zero.

Video Game

Agent Zero appears in both stylized and realistic versions of the game based on the movie, he has somewhat a much larger role in the stylized version than in the realistic. Wolverine battles him in a man-to-man combat in the stylized, making him a boss enemy, while in the realistic version, he is fought on a helicopter and is quickly killed by Wolverine.

Trivia

  • He is called "Nord" in the stylized version of the game.
  • Actor David Henney, relished his villainous role as David North: "There are no restrictions playing it, allowing you freely to express it, so you can act how you want to."
  • David Henney is of South Korean and Irish descent and is American by nationality, however, his character Agent Zero is actually German by ethnicity and nationality in the comics. In fact Zero, who is better known as Maverick in the comics, is portrayed as a cold-hearted ruthless marksman which is opposite to his comics book counter part. In addition, Maverick has to build up kinetic energy by movement or hitting something. However, this movie hints that he can absorb and alter kinetic energy, giving him enhanced gun fire and marksman abilities, and he is also shown being capable of moving faster and jumping higher than a normal human.
