Nijo was an assassin, mercenary, and agent employed by the Black Swan. He blamed Deadpool for his brother's death. The Black Swan targeted Deadpool because he took credit for the swans assassination of the four winds. However, Black Swan grew tired of Nijo and stabbed him. A bomb Deadpool had brought went off, and all were presumed killed.
However, Alex Hayden soon emerged. He was found by Sandi, she wanted him to be an amnesiac Deadpool. He took the name as a combination of composers he liked: Alexander Grieg and Josef Haydn. Taskmaster sought to help him get his bearings. He noticed Alex was ambidextrous and that he was somehow interfering with his reflex ability while training with him. He noticed that Alex had sharper aim but was not the best fighter but at times he mysteriously performed very intricate melee attacks (he later mastered his technique). Taskmaster knew he couldn't be Deadpool, despite his healing factor and recognition of him and Sandi. They formed a mercenary group, Agency X. The headquarters was based out of an amusement park that Agent X received as payment for his first job.

In an attempt to get rid of Alex by Taskmaster, Alex and Outlaw were assigned to retrieve the Punishers custom-twin pistols. They failed and were locked up in a phone booth minus their weapons and clothes by Frank castle himself. His assistant Sandi had to come get them.
Alex, Taskmaster and Sandi returned to his apartment to find Black Swan and Deadpool waiting. It turned out that all three had partially merged during the explosion. Black Swan psionically acquired Deadpool's healing factor but accidentally made contact with Nijo.
Outlaw returned in time to help fight the Black Swan, who had now absorbed both Alex and Deadpool's powers to augment himself. After Deadpool pinned Swan under a car, Alex ignited it. Alex then reversed Black Swan's absorption, but also gave him the memories of being stabbed to death. The group then repeatedly shot the Black Swan to make sure he was dead. After the whole ordeal, the group had Black Swan's body stuffed and mounted, it was then carried around by each couple (Taskmaster and Sandi, Alex and Inez) as a prop while they went on vacation.
Alex had another confrontation with Deadpool. He was upset with Deadpool for stealing his pancreas. Unable to do much damage to each other due to their healing factors, they reconciliation after Deadpool agreed to hand Alex his pancreas back.
Agent-X went on a mission to Hydra's base to destroy a machine they were working on, but the machine was turned on him in the fight. The machine re-wrote his genetic make-up to give him arthritis and a chronic eating disorder. Because the arthritis was now part of his genetic make-up, his healing factor couldn't cure it.
Agent-X was saved a few weeks later by Deadpool, who used H.Y.D.R.A.'s machine to cure Agent-X. However, he gained over 300 pounds during that time frame due to the eating disorder and asked Deadpool to take over his assignments at Agency-X until he is able to lose the weight. Which he is yet to do. In fact since his capture with Hydra he has only lost 3 pounds. His amazing results are thanks to Jenny Craig.
Regenerative Healing Factor, equal to Deadpool's and his own and pool's fighting skills. He also gained a portion of the Black Swan's psionic powers, although he seemed unaware that he was even using them. Agent X also has Swan's precision aim with most weapons.
