The Super Soldier Serum which has given birth to Captain America and many others was originally developed by a German Scientist Abraham Erskine. The serum was invented and transformed a lot of times to increase the strength of the human body and mind during the World War II to win the war. The Serum is responsible for the transformation of many famous super soldiers like Johan Schmidt, Steve Rogers, James Barnes, Bruce Banner, and Emil Blonsky and many others. So, today we are going to take a look at the Top 10 Super Soldiers of Marvel, ranked in terms of power are as follows:
10. Red Skull
Red Skull is on number 21 in Wizard Magazine’s Top 100 Greatest Villains Ever list and also IGN’s 14th Greatest Comic Book Villain of All-time. He worked on a high-rank during the World War II, where he locks horns with Captain America who was one of his species of super soldiers. Hitler gave Schmidt a unique uniform with a red skull mask as he emerged as the Red Skull. He played a pivotal role in the Nazi intimidation, while Hitler could remain the popular leader of Germany.
9. Black Widow
The story of Black Widow has a very unbelievable start as she is getting training from the time when she could barely walk. Natalia Romanova is a world-class athlete, gymnast, acrobat, aerialist capable of expert martial arts, weapons specialist as well as having extensive espionage. She was a threat to Marvel heroes before the time when she started falling in love the Hawkeye and switched the sides.
8. Luke Cage
Luke was the volunteer for Dr. Noah Burstein’s experiment of the super soldier theory and the result was a good one as he received a bulletproof skin. The skin and muscle tissue of Luke are extremely-dense which gives him the ability to skip the physical injury. He has also been part of Avengers and Thunderbolts for some time but prefers to fight alone because of his super strength and ability to knock out a rhino with a single punch.
7. Union Jack
Imprisoned by Germans during the World War II, Brian Falsworth was one of the many super soldiers gone by the name of Union Jack. Falsworth somehow broke out from the prison and started a war against the bad guys and renamed himself as Destroyer. He has fought against Vampire Uncle, Baron Blood, and many other well-known supervillains.
The story of Warhawk has been a little different as he was covered with blood during a war when Mitchell Tanner was on the verge of death Dr. Noah Burstein did an emergency super soldier experiment with the soldier and it paid off as a super soldier helped the wounded soldier to become a super-agent of the C.I.A. He had some big fights with Luke Cage and Iron Fist but was later hired by the Hellfire club to take out the entire X-Men team.
Sentry is the code name of several unrelated fictional characters appearing in the comic books. Usually known as Marvel’s Superman Sentry proved himself a helping hand to the likes of Fantastic Four and Spiderman in their city problems but the accidental super soldier couldn’t resist his dark side and as a result became a big problem for Marvel. The super soldier Robert Reynolds enters a laboratory where he got exposed to the Golden sentry serum.
Wolverine was also subject to the Weapons plus Program’s subdivision, Weapon X. Arguably one of the most deadly of mutants Wolverine is a very powerful character who possesses animal-keen senses, enhanced physical capabilities, powerful regenerative ability known as a healing factor.
The character is known as the “Merc with a Mouth” because of his tendency to joke constantly but doubting his abilities can make you harm in a very deadly manner as he has an accelerated healing factor, Canada’s Department K Experiment on Wade Wilson proved out to be a massive one as the healing factor was immensely powerful with the abilities of a warrior also.
2. Omega Red
Omega Red is a Mutant with superhuman strength, speed, stamina, durability, agility, and reflexes. Also, the ability to secrete pheromones from his body referred to as Death Spores which results in weakening the body of humans and gradually kills them. Arkady Rossovich was captured by KGB with a hope of transforming into Soviet Union’s answer to Captain America but it was Wolverine with whom he had all of his fights and tried his best to beat the animal.
1. Captain America
It is okay to admit that whenever you hear the word super soldier the only face which comes in front of you is of Captain America. Steve Rodgers was given the super soldier serum during the World War II and it turned out to be the best one as he’s been loyal to the promises he made to the humanity that he’ll never do injustice with his powers and about his powers well we all know his tremendous strength and capabilities.
