Arnim Zola

Search for 'Arnim Zola' on Amazon


Powers:
Arnim Zola possesses the ability to mentally control his various genetic creations by means of the ESP Box mounted atop his torso and surgically attached to his central nervous system. Although most of the creatures possess limited intelligence and the capacity for creative thought, Zola can override their mental processes if he so desires. The ESP Box is a retractable device that can convert brain waves into electronic signals for transmission as telepathic commands within ordinary radio range. Normally, Zola is capable of controlling only his own organic creations, but if he remains linked to his support equipment, he can stimulate his own mental power to such a degree that he can create a psychonkinetic network able to animate inorganic matter within radio range. Zola is unable to control natural organic life.

Arnim Zola possesses genius-level intelligence and scientific skills.

Arnim Zola possesses the normal human strength of a male athlete in his prime, despite the fact that he does not exercise and is almost a century-old.




Bio:
A rogue geneticist, Zola studied under Wladyslav Shinsky. In 1928, he attended a genetics conference which Jonathon Drew, Herbert Edgar Wyndham, and Noah Black attended. Later, Zola received secret aid from Phaeder and his son Maelstrom in developing genetic advancements.

Zola aided the Nazi scientist Baron Zemo in creating a series of androids which could expand from the size of a doll to over six feet tall.

Accounts vary, but at some point Zola established a process by which a person could project their mind onto a cloned body. He presented this process to Adolf Hitler. One accounts show that in 1944 Zola had already transferred his mind into his current, ESP box headed body. Talking with the Red Skull, he presented him with a pill to use to place himself in suspended animation. Zola presented Hitler with a completed cloned body. After Hitler walked out, Baron Strucker, a fugitive, entered the room. Strucker invited Zola to take part in the establishment of Hydra. Since around 1944 Strucker would think of Zola in his ESP-box body, this would support that Zola had switched bodies at this point.

However, while another account does show Zola in his ESP box on the day that Hitler's original body died, Hitler as the Hate-Monger would later recall Zola was still in his original body. In any event, Zola prepared a series of bodies for Hitler to use in his new identity of the Hate-Monger. (Zola once told Captain America that surgeons had extracted Hitler's brain and that he had preserved it to create a new body for it. This story appears to be a ruse to hide the truth about the Hate-Monger. Since then, the truth behind the Hate-Monger has been discovered, and is known to Spider-Man, Silver Sable, and Nick Fury.)

Hitler, according to a soldier who was with him the day his original body died, supposedly recommended Zola's process to Baron Zemo ("like your Führer, Zemo, you will become... a God... Zola will see to that") . It appears that Zemo did not for some reason undergo the process.
