Search for 'Clay Quartermain (Marvel)' on Amazon

Clay Quartermain is a high-ranking agent of the fictional espionage agency S.H.I.E.L.D., a "blond-haired, fast-talking, grinning Burt Lancaster" sort[2] who first works with that organization's storied executive director, Nick Fury, during S.H.I.E.L.D.'s first conflict with would-be world tyrant the Yellow Claw, later revealed to have been a robot simulacrum of that Chinese-national mandarin. Quartermain later becomes part of the U.S. military's "Hulkbusters" operation, which attempts to capture and contain the Hulk.

Quartermain, along with many other agents, is seemingly killed by a self-aware, renegade "Deltan" variety of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s artificial-human "Life Model Decoys", and replaced by one such LMD. The most advanced of the Deltite LMDs, it rebels upon learning it is not human, and after several confrontations, perishes. The real Quartermain is later found alive in cold storage in S.H.I.E.L.D. headquarters, brainwashed by a faction of the terrorist organization HYDRA. He is then is deprogrammed.

Retconned as a former romantic interest of Jessica Jones, Quartermain later becomes leader of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Paranormal Containment Unit. He is the agent sent to inform Jennifer Walters (She-Hulk) that she has been pressed into service as a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent. He next leads a new incarnation of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s "Hulkbusters" unit, here She-Hulk, Agent Crimson, and Agent Cheesecake.

Quartermain remains an ally of Jessica Jones, both using each other to gain information for their respective needs. Clay uses Jones to bring down a conspiracy against the President of the United States, personally making sure to allow her to escape a mass-criminal round-up. She later contacts him when the superhero Mattie Franklin makes a mysterious appearance in her apartment.
