Martin Bishop is a former DXS agent who later became a member of Codex. He was a brilliant scientist who was paired with a soldier to complete missions. Eventually he lost faith in DXS’ mission and faked his death in Budapest in 2006.

Early Life

He began his career for the United States Government by completing the Criminal Investigation Training Program at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center, where he was selected and fast tracked for clandestine services and training at The Farm. His Masters’ in Engineering, Mathematics, and Physics made him an ideal candidate for a Department of External Services field agent. Upon completing his clandestine services training, he was transferred to DXS and partnered with a weapons specialist for fieldwork. For ten years, he completed a number of high priority missions and confidential undercover assignments, where he established multiple aliases in order to infiltrate into war zones and hostile nation states as needed. On a mission in Budapest, 2006, Bishop was supposedly killed in action as his team made their to exfiltration. His body was not recovered, but witnesses confirmed he was fatally shot.[1]

Joining Codex

Bishop developed extremist beliefs about forcibly saving the world through science and he eventually joined Codex. He worked closely with Gwendolyn Hayes to prepare for Codex’s attack against Yellowstone National Park. Bishop became the head of a construction company that retrofit the park’s dam. He had his shell corporation purchase drilling equipment to create a side vent to the volcano’s magma chamber. Codex then prepared to blow up the park’s dam which would let river water flow into the magma chamber which would cause a super eruption.[2]

In order to further Codex's agenda, he planned to use the Hades X1 bioweapon to attack Los Angeles. Bishop created a torpedo delivery system and planned an attack on Los Angeles. Macgyver and Russ Taylor used “dentist methods” interrogating him with Nitrous oxide gas. Bishop stated he was saving people from a  world that is burning and claimed there were others like him. However, he threw up and they discovered his watched had pricked him and he laced it with poison.
