007 #3

The struggle with a concept like Bond goes over to the other side is laying out a situation where such a turn could seem plausible under the right circumstances. The third issue of 007 offers flashbacks to a blown mission involving dictator Mahmoud Nassar which Bond and Gwendolyn Gann manage to salvage and then tying that directly into Bond meeting the head of Myrmidon - Sebastian Fromm. 

Like several Bond villains before him, Fromm gives Bond the hard sell which ties back into that same dictator England wants to put back in power. At the time of her death, Gann was working with Myrmidon to prevent this. All the other trappings of the organization's facility, while interesting, are secondary to this idea which offers a plausible reason, at least in the short-term, for Bond to go with the flow.
