Captain Axis is a brilliant scientist and inventor with slight knowledge of military strategy.

Longevity: During his time as a scientist working for Nazi Germany, Captain Axis developed a serum that greatly extended his natural life span by slowing his aging process to an unknown degree.
Serving under the unsuccessful Nazi regime, Otto Kronsteig turned from a brilliant scientist to a fugitive from the War Crimes Commission. He fled to Latveria where he took a new master, Doctor Doom. Together, Kronsteig and Doom built a device Doom intended to use on his hated enemies, the Fantastic Four. The invention was meant to shrink them out of existence, but first it had to be tested. Doom, paranoid others would try to usurp his position, made Kronsteig his first test subject.
Kronsteig shrunk through universes until he landed on a world controlled by the Shaper of Worlds. There Kronsteig had the chance to live out his dream of a Nazi victory with himself as the Fuhrer. All was proceeding according to plan until the Hulk landed in the middle of his fantasy. Determined to make the Shaper send him back to his one true love, Jarella, Hulk joined the war against Kronsteig's forces. The Shaper refused to have his reality fail because of the man-brute, and from the recesses of Kronsteig's mind, he found a solution to deal with the Hulk. An unrealized experiment to create a Nazi super soldier, equal to the heroes of the allies, the Shaper of Worlds transformed Kronsteig into Captain Axis, a mountain of a man, to pit against the Hulk.
