Abigail Brande is an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Abigail Brande was stationed on the S.H.I.E.L.D. Orbital Station with Dr. Peter Corbeau, when the Living Laser was reconstituted in the station's telescope and when he fired himself on an uninhabited island, completely destroying it. She and Dr. Peter Corbeau were held hostage by the Living Laser and he told them both to tell everyone that he is holding the whole world hostage. Iron Man arrived to stop him and managed to trap the Living Laser inside the telescope.
