Percy van Norton took a serum which made him into a "perfect human" with a range of superhuman abilities. But although he started out fighting crime, something went wrong, and he turned bad, ending up fighting as a Nazi as a member of the Battle-Axis, against the Invaders. At the end of the battle van Norton, along with the other Battle-Axis members, was defeated and captured.

Van Norton's current status and post-war history remain unknown.


Strongman possesses the following powers...

  • Superhuman Strength
  • Superhuman Dexterity
  • Superhuman Stamina
  • Superhuman Durability

  • This character is based on the Public Domain character Strongman that first appeared in Crash Comics #2 (May 1940) as a wartime hero. As a Marvel character, however, he is a retcon addition, not having appeared in a Timely book. The character had fallen into the public domain and was used by Marvel as a villianous member of the Battle-Axis for their 1990s mini-series The Invaders.
