Andreas Von Strucker


Groomed to follow in his father’s footsteps, Andreas Von Strucker formed the terrorist group Fenris with his twin sister, Andrea. Born a mutant, Andreas found himself able to channel energy blasts from his hand, but only when in physical contact with his sister. Andrea was recently killed by Baron Zemo and, to maintain his ability to channel his mutant energy blasts, Andreas had his sister’s skin wrapped round the pommel of his sword. Andreas has recently adopted the Swordsman persona first used by the deceased Avenger, Jacques Duquesne.

Swordsman is a phenomenal acrobat and hand-to-hand combatant, skilled in the use of bladed weapons. Hist costume houses various hidden blades; his primary sword blade is sheathed in an adamantium alloy and can be shot as a grappling-hook-like projectile. When in contact with the hilt of his word, which is wrapped in his sister’s skin, Swordsman can release powerful bioelectric blasts of concussive force. He is fluent in German, albeit out of practice.
