Powers and Abilities

Fritz Sablinova was in his prime an elite commando and daring special forces soldier ; he retains much of this prowess and physical power. He is also a brilliant tactician and skilled spy.

As a member of the Genesis Coalition, he somehow obtained a powerful battle armour – although less advanced and versatile than an Iron Man armour, it matched it in some respects.


History

Fritz Sablinova was Ernst Sablinova’s brother, and possibly his twin, given their astounding physical resemblance. They both operated the Wild Pack – Fritz as the tactician, and Ernst as the field leader – and occasionally used their similar features and acting ability so that Ernst Sablinova could be at two places at once. Even Ernst’s daughter, Silver, didn’t know about Fritz’s existence, and thought he was Ernst on those occasions they worked together.

After Ernst Sablinova was killed by Ivan Trefkov, Fritz was devastated. Growing obsessed by the absence of a body, he decided to investigate and let himself be captured by HYDRA so he could determine the truth. However, he never found anything about the fate of his brother’s corpse (Ernst was actually still alive).

After months of torture, Fritz used his remarkable acting ability to convince Trefkov and his lieutenant Dmitri that he had been thoroughly broken and would now serve them. He helped them form the Genesis Coalition, a HYDRA splinter group, and backed them up with his tactical acumen, just as he had drafted many of the plans the Wild Pack used over the years.

Fritz’s plan was to build the Genesis Coalition and use it as his weapon against HYDRA, with both organizations hopefully destroying each other and him killing Trefkov and von Strucker in the end. However, the torture had actually affected him, and he developed a semi-subconscious hatred of Ernst for having been the public figure all those years and having “taken away” the leadership of the Wild Pack from him.

Although he schemed to protect Silver Sable from Trefkov and from interfering with his plans, he also subconsciously hated her for being the next person taking the leadership of the Wild Pack away from him while he was stuck scheming in the world of terrorism.

When the conflict between the Genesis Coalition and HYDRA came to a head in Bosnia, Fritz revealed his true colours and sided with Silver Sable and the Wild Pack, executing Dmitri. Over, his insanity eventually took the better of him ; as Silver Sable took apart the defeated Genesis Coalition and murdered Trefkov, Fritz tried to kill her for destroying the Coalition and taking away Trefkov.

As he was about to incinerate Silver Sable, Fritz was shot dead by the Foreigner.

Quotes

“Ernst worked toward this goal his entire life. Baron von Strucker’s resurrection taunts his memory.”

“No doubt Dmitri here has been playing games with your emotions. I could liquify him with this battle armor.”
