Jim Burley (Agent X) is a villain in the Marvel Comics universe.

The character, created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, first appeared in Ghost Rider (vol. 3) #29 in September 1992.

Within the context of the stories, Jim Burley is hired by Penner Security Associates, an organization of mercenaries set out to kill any disposable heroes. The team first attacks Ghost Rider, who kills all the men except for Agent X, who escapes out of fear. The two meet again after Burley volunteers for an experimental company giving ordinary humans mutant powers by running a special electric current through their bodies. The experiment goes wrong, and Burley is believed to be dead. Instead, he is given the ability to forcefully blast electricity from his hands. Ghost Rider defeats Agent X, though he is not killed. He then begins leading the Next Wave into his own team of freelance mercenaries, where he sets out to rid the Earth of all heroes.

Jim is considered as a "potential recruit" for the Initiative program, according to Civil War: Battle Damage Report.
