Supervillain Origins: Baron Zemo
The villainous Baron Zemo first appeared in flashback in Avengers #4, however, the character was not identified until later when readers learned that he was responsible for both Captain America’s decades-long hibernation and the death of his sidekick, Bucky. As it turned out, Baron Zemo was one of the most brilliant scientists working in Nazi Germany. Wearing a redish-purple hood his reputation for ruthlessness was such that even his own people hated him, and the hood concealed his identity, keeping him safe from vengeance by his enemies. Ultimately, Zemo’s hood was drenched in the weapon adhesive X, causing it to adhere permanently to his face. Join WatchMojo.com as we will explore the comic book origin of Baron Zemo.
