A genius in biology and chemistry, Arnim Zola is one of the enemy’s chief scientific minds and a genetic genius. His distinct lack of morality has allowed him to make important discoveries… as well as commit countless atrocities. A small, weak man, he will try any chemical or mechanical means to enhance the human body. He is fascinated with Dr. Erskine’s Super Soldier research.
The Iron Cross is a longstanding German military decoration and symbol, but recently, enemy transmissions referring to “Iron Cross” as a code name have been intercepted. It is unclear at this time whether that designation refers to an individual or an armored vehicle. Howard Stark has advanced a theory that it refers to a one-man tank of some kind, but unfortunately, little else is known about this mechanical beast.
Genetically enhanced to wear a specially-designed combat rig, the Warden is a formidable melee opponent. His battle rig includes a massive shield and a claw-like appendage that is propelled by a powerful pneumatic piston. Cap will have to call on all of his agility to help him avoid the Warden’s attacks and gain a tactical advantage.
