Red Skull


Arnim Zola was a biochemist during WWII who became the first human genetic engineer in history after finding papers and equipment used by the offshoot race of humanity, the Deviants. He found a ready home among the Nazi party, who saw his actions as the ability to assure the existence of a master race.

One of his first accomplishments was the creation of a brain pattern imprinting device, which would allow someone’s mental essence to be projected into a cloned brain. Zola presented such a gift to Adolf Hitler, creating the Hate-Monger. Zola also used these skills to form a new body for himself, surviving the war and into modern times.

The Red Skull also financed some of Zola’s experiments, allowing Zola to produce such creations as Primus and Doughboy. This association led to Zola’s first confrontation with Captain America in the jungles of Central America.

Zola has since continued experiments at various times and locations around the globe. Often, his crimes against humanity bring him into conflict with various heroes, from Captain America to Deadpool. During one such experiment Zola collected humans from the rubble of New York City after the devastation brought after the destruction of the being known as Onslaught. Zola endowed a teenager with superpowers, creating the hero known as Jolt, who brought the Thunderbolts to stop him.

Presumably, Zola continues to perform his genetic experiments on an unsuspecting humanity.
