Baron Wolfgang von Strucker was born in Strucker Castle in Bavaria, Germany, the last known member of a long line of Prussian noblemen, all of whom had distinguished themselves as military leaders. Strucker was recruited in the 1930's by the Nazi government's intelligence service and sent on various secret missions. When Germany went to war, Strucker was transferred to full time service where he met with repeated successes as a military leader, and rose to become wing commander of Germany's special Death's-Head Squadron.
After the war Strucker joined a secret society in Japan bent on world conquest, later known as HYDRA. Strukcer rapidly rose to power and assumed leadership of HYDRA, calling himself the Supreme Hydra. Under his leadership, HYDRA also formed a scientific branch that in later years would become AIM.
