"If we have erred, Rogers will be dead within seconds! For, he is drinking the strongest chemical potion ever created by man! But, if we succeed, he will be the first of an army of fighting men such as the world has never known! His reflexes, his physical condition, his courage, will be second to none!"
― Dr. Abraham Erskine (Tales of Suspense #63)

Associated Powers

    • Super Soldiers are sometimes modified in such a way that they have one incredible augmentation or adaptation, but otherwise are still just normal people.
  • Soldier
    • In addition to being a soldier themself, Super Soldiers often work alongside other more mundane soldiers. This is more common in cases where the Super Soldier is a sort of 'special unit' instead of being part of an army of super soldiers.


  • Process may cause various mental or physical side-effects that can range from irritating to debilitating.
  • Many super soldiers are just very strong members of their species, and so they often lack defenses to things they weren't engineered to handle.
    • For instance, your typical muscle-y super soldier has few defenses against psychic or magical attack.
