Iron Cross (Marvel)(01 - Helmut Gruler)
Real Name: Helmut Gruler
Search for 'Iron Cross (Marvel)(01 - Helmut Gruler)' on Amazon

The Iron Cross armor provides Helmut with superhuman strength, and physical protection. It also allows him to fly using the jetboots. The armor contains a variety of weapons including repulsor rays, missile launchers and possibly other weapons.

Iron Cross was a German champion of World War II who wore armor created by Professor Franz Schneider that gave him superhuman strength and flying ability. He could project electrical charges, sleeping gas, or an octupus-like black fluid from his armor.

Although he appeared to have been killed during a confrontation with the Invaders and Liberty Legion, in reality he survived. After the war, he joined the V-Battalion, and was a founder of the Penance Council. He has lived for over 100 years, kept alive by his armor. He apparently died when he overloaded his armor in a successful effort to disrupt HYDRA's attempt to use VMP and nanotech to take over the world.
