And then, the world will be mine. Hail HYDRA!
~ Baron Von Strucker.

Baron Von Strucker is a major antagonist in the TV series The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes.

He is one of the leaders of HYDRA. He led the organization for decades until he was captured by S.H.E.I.L.D. He was locked up in the vault in a secure prison cell very old. However he managed to escape during the breakout and the satan claw became young and strong again.

He is voiced by Jim Ward.


Wolfgang von Strucker joined the Axis ranks in their attempt to conquer the world. He became an officer of HYDRA, the branch of the Nazi war machine led by Baron Heinrich Zemo. As a member of HYDRA, Strucker served as a loyal lieutenant to HYDRA's Super Soldier, the infamous Red Skull.

Despite the defeat of the Axis powers in 1945, HYDRA continued to exist, even taking control of the organization and claiming the title of Baron when Baron Zemo was imprisoned by the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents. Strucker came into possession of a gauntlet of immense power, the Satan Claw. The gauntlet has given him the ability to sap another person's life force, absorbing it into himself and thereby keeping himself young and strong.

Strucker ordered all of the HYDRA forces to attack A.I.M. during the battle, Strucker managed to prevent M.O.D.O.K. from touching the Cube, but he himself reached for the Cube before much to his disappointment.

After the battle, Baron Strucker was taken into custody, which resulted in the defeat of HYDRA.


He is a power-hungry and egomaniac wanting to take over the world and remake it in HYDRA's image. He is willing to do anything to make it possible. He also intends on remaining the head of HYDRA and won't give it up even if the Red Skull or Baron Zemo come back to reclaim it.


  • In the Marvel Comics, Baron Strucker joined HYDRA after WWII. He took command of the organization on Red Skull's orders.
  • While Strucker does not appear in season 2, he does appear in a flashback in "Who Do You Trust?", where Mockingbird defeats Madame Viper (who was actually a Skrull) back in "Widow's Sting".
