- "I make sure Cybertek products move across Italy without incident. They make sure I'm well taken care of."
- ―Luca Russo
Luca Russo was a corrupt law enforcement official and de facto double agent of the Italian government, who assisted Cybertek in moving their products across Italy.
- "You're not asking me at all, Agent Coulson. You're telling me and my team to hand over our investigation to S.H.I.E.L.D."
- ―Luca Rosso
During an operation by S.H.I.E.L.D., Russo was strong-armed into handing off his supposed investigation into Cybertek's movements across Italy to Agent Coulson's team. Unbeknownst to Coulson, Russo was being paid off by Cybertek to turn a blind eye in allowing their illegal shipments of merchandise across Italy. Russo betrayed Coulson's team to Cybertek, who set a trap to eliminate them.
When Agent Ward and Coulson escaped from the train, Russo and his men captured Agent May in an attempt to learn their whereabouts. Russo, himself, stabbed May in the shoulder with a knife, and in doing so, provided her a way to escape and eliminate all of Russo's men. Russo escaped, and left to rendezvous with Ward and Coulson at the Bus, and eliminate them there. Unknown to him, May followed him back to the Bus and killed him with the very same knife he stabbed her with earlier. May walks past his fallen corpse without comment, interest or remorse.
