Victor Conrad was a researcher for A.I.M. who was able to recreate the Super-Soldier Serum. Victor consumed the formula when agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. infiltrated his lab. The lab erupted in a massive explosion and Victor Conrad emerged as a new man with the serum flowing through his body. He would change his name to Victorious and attempt to reunite the fragmented A.I.M. This led to conflict with Ka-Zar and he was defeated.[1]

Cult of Entropy

Victorious would later reappear and get involved with the Cult of Entropy whose belief is that the way of the universe is ever moving towards atrophy and decay. He regrouped the cult and, with the Cosmic Cube in his possession, was able to reform the remains of Yagzan, the cult's former leader. He transformed the remains of Yagzan into Jude, the Entropic Man and together they started their new world order. This led to a conflict with the Thing, Captain America and the Man-Thing in the swamp of the Everglades. Victorious and Jude were transformed into some sort of radiant crystal when they touched the Cosmic Cube while the Man-Thing was holding it. The radiation from the crystal has been stimulating the plant growth in the swampy area and Victorious has not been seen ever since.[2]

Cult member Andrew Forson worked with undercover S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Bobbi Morse. Creating a second personality in her, he used Morse to kill investigating S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, then to remove Victorius himself in order to take over the cult.[3]

Victorius' exact fate remains unknown.


Victorious is highly intelligent and his body was in peak physical condition due to the Super-Soldier Serum flowing through his body.[4]


He was highly skilled in hand-to-hand combat.[4]
