Army of EvilEdit

In order to expand the enterprise of Captain America, Baron Helmut Zemo decided to create an even bigger team of villains by recruiting several long term solo villains and reforming the Circus of Crime, the Masters of Evil, the Wrecking Crew, and the Serpent Solutions altogether into one group as part of Hydra's rise to power. As a result, he forms the Army of Evil.[13] The Army of Evil first appeared where they attacked Manhattan in retaliation for what happened at Pleasant Hill. They fought the Defenders, Doctor Strange, Cloak and Dagger, and Spider-Woman before being withdrawn so that Manhattan can be covered in a Darkforce dome which trapped the heroes present.[14] Then they attacked Washington DC so that Hydra can secure the capital to complete Hydra's takeover of the United States.[15] The Army of Evil was kept in stasis pods until Hydra Supreme gave orders to awaken them so that they can help Hydra fight the heroes. Before Baron Zemo can complete the job, he is thwarted by Black Panther and Winter Soldier.[16]
