Warrior Woman[src]

History

Julia's early life has yet to be revealed. She was a spy during the Nazi regime in World War II. She caught and hypnotized an American, Wilhelm Lohmer, who held secrets to the Super-Soldier Formula that transformed Captain America. "Bill Jo" White wrote comics, which noted a super-soldier serum and had received secret and key information from his long-time friend Dr. Anderson, a collaborator on Operation Rebirth.[3] Despite objections from her superiors, Koenig decided to try what she had learned of the formula on herself. An explosion took place during the process, and Julia was transformed into a female version of a Super Soldier.

On one of her first missions, Warrior Woman accompanied the Red Skull and a team of superhuman Nazi operatives to Wakanda to recover a supply of vibranium for the Nazi war effort. She was seemingly killed during the battle by the Black Panther, but she somehow survived.[4]

Invaders Vol 1 17

Adolf Hitler was so impressed with this new "Krieger Frau" that he wanted her to marry his Master Man. Against her better judgement (and standards), she agreed only because it was Hitler's wish. As part of the celebration in Berlin, Hitler wanted to execute the Invaders, who had recently been captured by Warrior Woman and Master Man. The final vows were never spoken, as reserve members of the Invaders rescued their teammates.

Later, against her will, she was among the Axis supervillains who were organized by the mind-controlling Lady Lotus in her Super-Axis. She was taken into custody with the rest of the team after being defeated by the Invaders.[5]

Julia was put into a form of cryonic suspension after the war, not being recovered until after the German reunification. A man who called himself "Herr Nacht" had fallen in love with her image, and had re-created the strength formula and taken it himself, becoming a self-proclaimed new Master Man. Unfortunately, it seems her long freeze had given Warrior Woman some brain damage, complicating her recovery.[6] Herr Nacht attempted to use the blood containing Horton Cells of the original Human Torch to try to heal her, but the involvement of the Sub-Mariner, Captain America, Union Jack, and an elderly Jacqueline Crichton prevented that. However, the original Master Man had also been awakened and, tired of her flirtations with Nacht and her constant berating him, took his revenge by blowing up the building they were in. The original Master Man, Wilhelm Lohmer, was later seen alive although reverted to his true age.[7]

Warrior Woman also later re-appeared as a member of Axis Mundi. She has also acquired the affection and attention of the new Master Man.[8]

    • Superhuman Stamina: The effects of the Nazi formula also enhanced Julia's stamina to an unknown degree.

    • Superhuman Durability: The formula fortified Julia's bodily tissues, making them much more resistant to physical injury than the body of an ordinary human.

Notes

  • Warrior Woman was occasionally referred to as "Krieger Frau" as the German translation of her codename. While the German word "Frau" can mean woman, wife, lady, madam, or Mrs. depending on context,[11] the most natural translation for the compound word "Kriegerfrau" would be "Warrior's Wife." Better translations for "Warrior Woman" into German would be either "Kriegerin", which is the feminine variant of 'warrior' in German, or "Frau Kriegerin," which could be translated as "Lady Warrior" or "Woman Warrior."
