Super-Soldier (Clark Kent) is a fictional character, an Amalgam Comics superhero who first appeared in Marvel Versus DC #3 (April 1996). Super-Soldier is an amalgamation of DC Comics' Superman and Marvel Comics' Captain America.

Fictional history[edit]

Sometime before World War II, the United States government discovers a spacecraft that contains the corpse of a dead alien being. When World War II breaks out, the government uses the dead alien's DNA to develop a serum that will create the ultimate superhuman soldier to fight the Axis powers.

Chosen for the project is a scrawny man named Clark Kent (who, in this world, has blond hair similar to Marvel's Steve Rogers). Injecting him with the only sample of the serum, in combination with a solar radiation treatment, gives him superhuman strength, invulnerability, flight, and super-vision. With his newfound powers, Clark becomes a symbol of freedom during World War II as Super-Soldier, the Man of War.

In 1942, Super-Soldier is frozen in ice while fighting the robotic menace Ultra-Metallo (an amalgamation of DC's Metallo and the Ultra-Humanite with Marvel's Ultron). Revived fifty years later, he finds that his powers are fading due to fallout from K-Bombs (constructed from the alien element, Green K) exploded by his archenemy, Lex Luthor.[1]

Powers and abilities[edit]

Super-Soldier has powers and abilities similar to Superman, including superhuman strength, endurance, senses, speed, and stamina; flight; heat-ray vision; and ice breath. He also has a "danger sense." Super-Soldier carries an unbreakable shield in the shape of the traditional Superman "S" emblem.House of El's Family Crest
