About Hydra

Hydra: cut off one head and two grow in its place. The analogy fits for the organization that devotes itself to global domination within the Marvel universe. Hydra is the opposing organization to S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement, and Logistics Division). Baron Wolfgang von Strucker, a Nazi spymaster, formed Hydra with the help of the Hand during World War II, recruiting heavily from former Nazi soldiers. However, references to the shadowy organization trace back as far as ancient Egypt, making it difficult to tell exactly how long Hydra has been around. Hydra uses alien technology in addition to espionage and blackmail, making it a force to be reckoned with. Hydra spawned a number of villainous organizations that began as branches of its own organization. Build your own army with new and pre-owned HeroClix Hydra figures, easily identifiable by their green uniforms with yellow H’s on the chest. But if your superhero action figures take them out, never fear, because on eBay there are more Hydra miniatures waiting for deployment.
