Bulwark (Captain America / Wasp enemy) (Marvel Comics Avengers)


Power Level:
Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game


This bloke fought Captain America once, in 1991. And that’s it.

But he’s a towering brute, and giant thug profiles are a writeups.org tradition.

Powers & Abilities

Bulwark is well-trained in combat, though he’s not as deadly as he thinks he is. His main, and most obvious, advantage remains his immense size. As a result, his strength and durability are presumably nigh-superhuman.

When encountered, Bulwark was wielding a large, reinforced cattle prod-like weapon. Its output seemed sufficient to fatally electrocute most people in one hit.


In 1991, the assassin Bulwark was working as an enforcer for reclusive, insane weapons mogul Itzhak Berditchev.

When the Wasp (Janet van Dyne) and Captain America (Steve Rogers) invaded Berditchev’s secure compound to investigate Mrs. Beritchev’s death, Bulwark faced Cap.

Though he got in a good shot when Cap was distracted, he was defeated in short order and never seen again.


Bulwark is fantastically huge, but not truly athletic.


Typical threatening thug. He’s easily angered by verbal barbs about his weight.


“I am Bulwark – the world’s deadliest assassin !”

“I’m not overweight — I’m big-boned !”
