U.S. Agent #1-3 (2001): Machete dies

Look, I get that Jerry Ordway is a comic book legend.  I appreciate his role on so many great and important series.  But I hate U.S. Agent, and even a legend can’t make me like him.

Picking up from the Maximum Security event, Agent Walker gets a job working with SHIELD and locking up super villains.  Val Cooper sets him up with his own team: S.T.A.R.S. (Superhuman Tactical Activities Response Squad).  They all suck and there’s an evil conspiracy involving a Senator.

That’s pretty much it.  Oh, except that in issue #1, Machete gets killed during a S.T.A.R.S. raid on Hydra.
