“You can never defeat HYDRA! We will always rise again!”
I am genius, there is no denying that. The Sturmabteilung recognized this, appreciated, celebrated it. I achieved many things; in my hands warfare was a dance, ballet. When I joined the Reich and Schmidt created HYDRA, that is when my creativity truly took off; my work in genetics was extraordinary, the exoskeleton suit a work of art.
It was unfortunate, being captured by the Allied Forces, but it did allow me the pleasure of making acquaintance with Herr Doctor Fennhoff; and this led to great strides in my experiments, and to my final, finest achievement! I also took advantage of the opportuntity to open doors between HYDRA and SHIELD- the infiltration of that foolish organization was childs play; between the insertion of HYDRAs people and corruption of their own agents… what a laugh. Once I had found my true form, completed the transferral of consciousness to the cyberspace it was even simpler. The destruction of SHIELD was imminent!
Red Skull, the Tesseract, Fennhoff, HYDRA and SHIELD… all helpful in their own ways, but insignificant nonetheless; after all, I would have acquired the information and tools necessary to fulfill my ambitions in time. They none of them could have soared to the heights to which I have climbed. And in the end, when I faced the American ‘heroes’ (A joke, I assure you), I made the ultimate sacrifice… yes, in the end, I proved myself the superior intellect, the greatest scientist and the perfect soldier.
