Another Magnificent Bastard

Baron Helmut Zemo is the Thirteenth in the Baron Zemo lineage. Much like his father before him, he is an enemy of Captain America and the Avengers and has led the Masters of Evil on several occasions. Zemo has a gifted intellect, with certain scientific expertise, excellent marksmanship, and extensive training in hand-to-hand combat. He is also a highly accomplished strategist and leader. Helmut has circuitry in his headband designed to disrupt psionic manipulation.

Thunderbolts is where he belongs and I wish Marvel would bring Zemo back in a big way. He's got the potential to be a great anti-hero. Read the first 12 issues of Thunderbolts or the mini-series Zemo - Born Better to get a full sense of the character. I would like to see him in the third Captain America movie. He's always got his own agenda so even when teamed up with the bad guys he's always a dangerous wildcard because HIS endgame is always to be the only one in charge. Like Doom, Zemo is no man's slave and can fully be counted on to stab his allies in the back at his first opportunity.

Injustice: God's Among Us

NetherRealm's new Injustice trailer combines Justice League and George Orwell's 1984.

I always liked the stories where the superheroes are twisted into the authoritarian villains. They always start out with the best of intentions but in the end, being a hero is all about sacrifice, not control. I see things like this and I so wish I was a gamer who could totally get into the whole world and experience. With the footage they do have I wish someone could create a neat little computer generated feature of the story that is incorporated into the video game.

Credit where credit is due, the premise of Injustice does sound it would make for an interesting comic book story. After the Justice League fails to prevent the Joker from detonating a nuclear device in Metropolis, DC's superheroes start assert direct control over the populace to ensure such disasters never happen again. Presumably years later, a faction within the League finally starts to realize they've gone too far, putting them at odds with Superman and Wonder Woman's totalitarian regime. The new "insurgency" movement, which includes Batman, Flash, Lex Luthor, and Harley Quinn, enacts a bold plan to set things right; how much that plan will involve a series of three round Beat-Em-Up matches remains to be seen.

I also like these slightly altered designs that reflect a more dark approach to the job of hero. Follow the link at the bottom of the page to learn more about the game.
