Elihas Starr was a S.H.I.E.L.D. scientist who worked with Hank Pym and Bill Foster on quantum research, but was also known to be a secret member of HYDRA and had secretly been working with one of organization's great leaders Olinka Barankova. As he continued his work, he was suddenly fired and discredited by Pym for attempting to sell in secrets. Starr moved to Argentina with his wife Catherine and their daughter Ava, continuing with his research until he accidentally killed himself and his wife during a quantum experiment that caused Ava's unstable state. This was proven wrong, and it is revealed that Starr resurfaced, having survived his deadly fate with the help of a "Rejuvetech Serum". However, the effects of the accident that he worked on caused his head to mutate in the shape of an egg and called himself Egghead.
Doctor Starr continued his job and loyalty to HYDRA, and aided Olinka's cause to conquer the world.
