Powers and Abilities

Herr Eisele is a competent and experienced assassin and squad leader. He’s especially good at close combat and small units tactics.

His fist-rams are derived from the weapons of the supervillain Jackhammer, but were considerably enhanced by Hydra techs. They allowed Eisele to pound on a grown Atlas and get results.

His squad appears to be 10 or 12 men strong.


See illustrations.


Eisele is a veteran Hydra assassin. For a while he worked for the Jaguar, a minor supervillain who had become head of Hydra assassinations. Eisele worked his way up, built up an excellent rep as a successful agent.

He eventually became the leader of a top Hydra assassin team, using military assault tactics and advanced equipment.

This team was deployed against the Thunderbolts to avenge Hydra defeats at their hands, and almost managed to defeat them before Hawkeye’s leadership turned the battle.

Hydra assassin squad (Marvel Comics)


Eisele is a cold professional, shouting orders at his troops and building up their morale. He’s often see smoking a cigarillo and has easily recognizable facial scars.


“Keep them apart ! Keep them from backing each other up ! Separate ’em and overwhelm ’em – one by one ! Long as they can’t work together they don’t stand a chance !”

DC Universe History

The stats probably can be used for any hard-hitting military squad with jet packs, big armor and lots of firepower.
