Powers/Abilities: Hans was the personal servant of the Dreadknight, and his duties included caring for his master's Hellhorse.

History: (Tales of the Marvel Universe#1)- At the Dreadknight's castle in northern Latveria, Hans contacted his master the Dreadknight to inform him that Dr. Doom had seemingly perished battling Onslaught. Dreadknight determined that the time was now right to conquer Latveria, and had Hans contact his allies in America, Roxxon Oil.

(Spider-Man Unlimited#16)- As Hans tended to the Hellhorse, the Dreadknight met with his ally at Roxxon Oil, Lindon Laswell. Hans was astonished to overhear them reveal that the Dreadknight intended to allow Roxxon to pilfer Latveria's natural resources. He confronted the Dreadknight on the issue, attempting to appeal to his love of Latveria, but the Dreadknight informed Hans that he no longer possessed any love for Latveria. He then crushed Hans' neck with his hand. For good measure, he then electrocuted the body using his lance.
