Hauptmann Deutschland
Real Name: Markus Ettlinger
Search for 'Hauptmann Deutschland' on Amazon

Vormund possesses the ability to absorb kinetic energy and redirect that energy at an opponent. By aiming this energy at an opponent's heart, he can kill them. Under normal circumstances, he uses this energy to provide himself with greater endurance in a battle, increase his speed and strength, and to repel attacks.

On one mission, Vormund wore a vest containing a variety of weapons, including a metal net encased in a ball, ball bearings coated in oil, and a cable gun.

Hauptmann Deutschland is part of a team called the Schutz Heiligruppe, which was a national superteam protecting Germany. He first appeared in a backup story in Captain America where the Schutz Heiligruppe captured the Red Skull and abducted him back to Germany in an attempt to put him on trial for war crimes. Although they captured the Skull and subsequently his Skeleton Crew, they later surrendered the Skull to a false Thor, Iron Man and Captain America, who were actually shapeshifting "bioplastoid" androids created by the Skull's lackey Arnim Zola.

Realizing the deception, Hauptmann Deutschland followed the Skull back to America. After the obligatory brawl between heroes, he then teamed up with Captain America to track the Skull. They gave up the hunt when confronted with a false corpse of the Red Skull. The false Skull had been shot through the head, and appeared to have been killed by the Scourge of the Underworld, who left his trademark "Justice Is Served" scrawled on the wall.

The German hero is also sometimes called Vormund & Captain Germany. He has appeared in issues of Captain America.
