Place of Birth
Gehenna, New Zealand
The Hive's body is not a solid figure, but actually a writing congregation of many parasites. Therefore, the parasites can latch away from the mass and attack others at high speeds. In addition, he can fire organic pods from his hands that exploded with the force of a hand grenade.
As one, the Hive is capable of asserting itself as an individual, albeit without name or personality. In this form it is capable of speech; however, it is an unknown language outside of HYDRA. This suggests that the language is one created by HYDRA for strategic secrecy when in the field. The Hive can breath on both land and underwater.
A HYDRA agent recruit, who during his physical examination was found to be deficient in white blood cells which made him weak--making the perfect subject for HYDRA's new program. The recruit was brought to a room in HYDRA's underwater base by Kraken. Unknowingly, the recruit was being offered/fed to the parasites within the room. The parasites attached themselves to the agent's body and was soon transformed into a mutated human/parasite hybrid. Thus, the Hive was born.
Over time, the Hive was condition to be completely dedicated to the HYRDA cause even to the extent that Baron von Strucker appointed it as a figurehead alongside himself, the Viper, Gorgon, Kraken, and the new Madame Hydra Valentina Allegra de Fontaine.

At one point, the Hive led a raid on "Barracuda" (a S.H.I.E.L.D. weapons factory) accompanied by a squad of his servitors. (To learn about S.H.I.E.L.D., just click on their name above.)
Later, when HYDRA went to war against a rival organization, Leviathan, Viper was taken captive. While there, it was revealed that the new Madame Hydra was actually a traitor within HYDRA and she shot and killed Viper. However, just a few hours after her death, the remaining HYDRA leaders discovered Viper's body and the Hive brought her back to life with one of his spawned parasites. This gave her a new monstrous, tentacle form.
At one point, the Hive and the HYDRA council attended a summit with Leviathan at HYDRA's Crown base in Kyoto. When Leviathan leader Magadan demanded HYDRA's surrender, the situation erupted into all-out war--devastating Kyoto.
More recently, after Nick Fury's assault on Gehenna, HYDRA split into two factions in which the Hive joined one led by Gorgon. However, as a result of battling both Leviathan and Nick Fury, their group was forced into their only remaining stronghold beneath the Indian Ocean. It was here that Nick Fury sent his Gray Team of Secret Warriors to destroy them and the entire base. When the Grey Team arrived, the Hive slew almost the entire team except team leader Mikel Fury and his friend Carlos Ayala. It was these two the blew up the entire base; thus, killing themselves, the Hive, and the parasites. (To learn about the characters and/or team highlighted above, just click on their names.)
There is nothing there, but here is the Marvel.com bio page for Hive, http://marvel.com/universe/Hive.
In the TV show, Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Hive is slightly different. In the show, he is an ancient parasitic Inhuman, rather than a Hydra experiment. In the show, it appears that Hive possesses the corpses of others and retains their memories. He currently posses the corpse of Agent Ward.
