In 2012, Aldrich Killian approached Rodriguez and allowed his daughter to undergo the Extremis program if the United States government didn't intervene in the faux terrorist attacks perpetuated by the Mandarin, secretly the failures of the Extremis program. Rodriguez agreed to the terms of the deal and aided Advanced Idea Mechanics, Killian's company and a front for the Extremis program, in overthrowing the United States, including hijacking Ellis' phone and providing Ellis' location at all times.
Tony Stark and James Rhodes attempted to contact Rodriguez to inform him of a plan to kidnap Ellis. Rodriguez told the men that he would have planes in the air shortly, but dissimulated the plan to the Air Force, allowing Eric Savin to infiltrate Air Force One and kidnap Ellis.
