The Kraken Armor is a full suit of armor of magical or at least very technologically advanced nature, that covers the wearer of a helmet, granting him enhanced powers.

Daniel Whitehall donned the helmet to confront the Brood during a mission for the Great Wheel.[1]

Jake Fury ultimately stole the armor from Whitehall, in order to infiltrate Wolfgang von Strucker's Hydra while posing as Whitehall.[2]

Later, an unrevealed person took possession of the armor to become the new Kraken.[3]


The Kraken alters the appearance and voice of the wearer to protect his identity. It also apparently enhances the wearer's strength and durability,[4] enables him to transport himself and several across inter-continental distances (perhaps via accessing other technology),[5] grants him short-range energy projection, and presumably other abilities as well.[4] The helmet may also affect the mind of the wearer, as Jake Fury described feeling like he was "slipping into a new persona - a new face, a new voice... and the vision to see the world in a new light."[6] The helmet also protects from Gorgon's stone gaze, though that may have just been by dint of preventing eye contact.[7]
