Frederick Goebel, or Adolph as he prefers to be called now, is the leader of Fourth Reich, a Neo-Nazi group that has been gaining power over the last few years. He is a massive man, a by product of taking an untested vial of the second generation Super Soldier serum stolen from the US government, who wants to lead the world under the Nazi flag like his namesake tried to do in WWII.

Adolph’s grandfather was a high-ranking SS operative that fled from Germany after the Axis failed to turn back the Allies during the D-Day Invasion in Normandy. He kept his family on the move; first hiding in Brazil, then moving to Mexico, and finally coming to rest in the US, right under the nose of the US Government in Washington DC. While he was never active in the burgeoning Neo-Nazi movement that sprang up in the 40’s, he instilled his twisted Nazi values on his children and grandchildren. None of Adolph’s cousins showed the determination that he did, and he quickly became his grandfather’s favorite when he joined an underground Nazi group based in Virginia. Over the years, Adolph would rise to power over not only that cell, but nearly other Neo-Nazi group in the US. With his dying breath, Adolph’s grandfather told him how proud he was that he was carrying on the glorious tradition of the Reich, and Adolph had never felt more proud.

Fourth Reich is still primarily a clandestine organization, even after some high profile thefts of weaponry and other technology. Much of the organization is based in a grass-roots approach to spread pride in German heritage and sow discord among the “lesser” races. Their movement is popular in areas with high poverty and little education. The upper echelons of the organization are for those that have not only proven their devotion to the cause (usually through acts of terrorism), but also genetic purity and intelligence.

Until the theft of the Super Soldier serum, Adolph was primarily a tactician that let underlings take all the action. Now, he leads at the forefront as a sterling example of the might destined to be had by all members of the Fourth Reich. Even though he has been defeated several times, even once by Jewish duo Psword and Pshield, he still commands the respect of all members of the Fourth Reich.

The Fourth Reich has a loose alliance with other Nazi groups and villains from Ultima Thule to the Iron Cross, but Adolph makes it no secret that he feels he is one true successor of Der Fuhrer and that all others should bow to him, even though deep down he knows that he doesn't yet have the raw power or the resources needed to take on the other major players in the worldwide Nazi network.

Adolph is a huge man. He stands over 8 feet tall. His dark hair began thinning after taking the Super Soldier serum, and he can no longer grow any facial hair as well. He wears a modernized version of a Nazi SS Commandant’s uniform of grey fatigues and a black leather overcoat. He’s usually cool-headed, but finds that his temper has also become as thin as his hair after ingesting the serum. One of his scientists attributes much of change in his body to a latent mutation in his genetic code that reacted violently to the serum. Since mutation is a mark of an impure bloodline, Adolph killed the man to keep his secret hidden.
