Powers and Abilities

The Golden Eagle seems to be a powerful athlete and fighter.

His winged harnesses allows for fast, silent flight. Both his wings and gauntlets have slashing edges.

He has not appeared since.

Golden Eagle (Aryan Brigade) throws a man to his death


Golden Eagle has a definite “uneducated and angry” vibe.


A cruel, racist thug.

He actually seems pretty decent and caring toward “the right people” (i.e., White folks approving of his political beliefs). But this also means an increased hostility toward “race traitors” (i.e., White folks working against his political beliefs).


“Have a nice trip, scum — straight to Hell, compliments of Golden Eagle !” (drops his victim whilst high in flight)

“You’re making yourself too easy a target, race traitor !”
