Hans Groitzig (Earth-616) from Marvel Mystery Comics Vol 1 50 0002

Hans Groitzig, enemy of The Patriot

Doctor Groitzig was a Nazi scientist who was active during World War II. By December 1943, he was hiding out with his assistant Scharrolla within a lighthouse on the outskirts of New York City. They were ordered by their superiors to develop a formula that could endow men with super-human strength and abilities.

Reaching a breakthrough with their formula, the pair of scientists went into New York to capture a guinea pig to test it on. They kidnapped reporter Mary Morgan as she was waiting her date Jeff Mace (secretly the Patriot). Brought back to the lighthouse, Mary was injected with the formula. It did not give her super-human strength, and Groitzig was so distraught he destroyed all his notes and chemicals, considering the experiment a failure. He was soon beaten senseless by the Patriot who turned him over to the Coast Guard. Unknown to Groitzig, his formula did have an effect on Mary, endowing her with the ability to see and hear things from great distances, leading Mary to briefly become the Patriot's sidekick Miss Patriot for a time.[2]

Groitzig's subsequent activities and ultimate fate are unknown.
