Elsbeth von Strucker was the wife of Nazi criminal Baron Wolfgang von Strucker. A devout Satanist and social nihilist, she helped Strucker fund the foundation of Hydra, but was unknown to S.H.I.E.L.D. for almost the whole of her life. According to S.H.I.E.L.D.'s research, she was stated to be the fourth richest person in the world, 175 years old, a chess grandmaster, the lover of the four kings and three presidents (among others), and a close personal friend of the late Madame Blavatsky.[1]

Based on political machinations presaging a regime change within Hydra, Elsbeth entered the chain of command, forming a personal and sexual alliance with the Gorgon. Together, the two led a merger of the Hand and Hydra on a campaign which was intended to destroy civilization and the planet Earth. They also created a clone of Baron Strucker who posed as the original in a ritual suicide when he abdicate power to them.[3][4]

However, their scheme was foiled by Wolverine, who killed Elsbeth by firing a rocket-propelled grenade into her bedroom with Gorgon.[5]
