His father was one of the top Nazi scientists and Red Skull's researchers in the Nazi Specials Weapon division, this way he managed to adquire the weapons and Hydra's people and to carry them outside Europe far from the Allies and Captain America, the man who killed his father, transforming Hydra into the feared terrorist empire it is nowadays. Fighting his archnemesis, the Baron's cowl attached to his face permanently when it was spilled with the powerful Adhesive X.

Trying to take control over Hydra against Viper he swore vengeance over Captain America and to do it he has lead teams of villains such as the Thunderbolts.

For his crimes with the Nazis and Hydra he reached the fourth position in the most wanted list of S.H.I.E.L.D.[1]

Mutant Mayhem

Baron Zemo was seen by Nightcrawler in a lab where Mystique was creating mutated tests subjects, a strange alliance counting that Hydra was sending soldiers to kill mutants.

With the resurrection of the Red Skull, Hydra was splitted into two factions, one following Viper and the other following Zemo; the only thing they have in common is that they still don't know if they have to follow the Red Skull's orders or not. After fighting the two Hydra's leaders and Red Skull, Captain America deduced that the resurrected old leader will pick one of the present leaders to help him leading the world into a new Reich.[1]
