Heinz Kruger was a spy, and an agent of Nazi Germany's Gestapo. He was sent by Hitler to infiltrate U.S. Army's Project Rebirth, in order to stop Dr. Abraham Erskine from experimenting with his Super-Soldier Serum on Steve Rogers.
He arrived at Long Island, in the United States, where he was contacted by members of the Nazi Fifth Column, who told him they had successfully found a secret cover identity he could use to pass Project Rebirth's security check. In New York City, Kruger then contacted Major Kerfoot, who gave him papers which identified him as U.S. Foreign Affairs Ministry Special Agent Frederick Clemson, a replacement for U.S. Interior Department Secretary Ickes, who couldn't attend the experimental demonstration.
After Project Rebirth's candidate Steve Rogers had been successfully enhanced by Dr. Erskine's serum and Vita Rays, Kruger broke the observation cabin's glass, shooting Erskine with a gun, immediately killing him.
