Arnim Zola



Yes, sir, Mr. Arnim Zola. This crazy guy is another Kirby creation, almost as cool as MODOK himself. Zola is a kooky Nazi biochemist and enemy of Captain America. Oh yeah, he has an antenna/camera for a head and his face is a screen on his chest. Very chic.

Hey Andy--

Yeah, Man-E-Faces was a cool toy. I enjoyed his evil monster face best! Maybe I should do some MOTU characters and throw them on up here. That is after I get more original property stuff worked out. Thanks for popping by.

James-

Thanks, dude (or El Duderino if you're not into the whole brevity thing)! Trying to work that stuff into the blog and maintain a certain amount of surliness.

Dude-

I was going thru my ol' comic book collection last night and found Mr. Arnim Zola in a Cap #212 w/ the Falcon. Bio-chemical genius he is. It was a simpler time back then-going door to door selling GRIT(America's Greatest Family Weekly Pulication) and reading about the exploits of great villians like AZ....

Brendan Tobin said...

James-

Yeah, I think AZ was created a few issues earlier, #208, I believe, when Jack Kirby came back to Marvel and took over writing and art chores on Captain America. And hey-- "You've got to have GRIT!" Wasn't there a kid in the ad named Timmy Newcomer who was raking in millions a day with his GRIT paper route? Maybe it was $4 a week.

man, him the red skull and dr. faustus have made a pretty bad-ass team in cap. america lately. and docter doom may of had something to do with arnim zola's reappearence too. he's also keeping almost all of the atlantians for namor, since namor blew up atlantis 'cause shield was gonna make war with them. and docter doom has been showing up with the F.F. as his future self to try and stop reed righards & tony stark from becoming power hungery world dictators. just a 'lil update on marvel comic's latest.
