Affiliations: Red Skull (Shmidt)

Enemies: Captain America (Rogers)

Base of Operations: Unknown

First Appearance: Captain America Annual I#13 (1994)

History: (Captain America Annual I#13) - The Red Skull hired four armored lackeys to accompany him in stealing a tome from the home of a deceased Russian agent.  The book apparently contained the secrets of "Der Tag," the secret descriptions for the Nazi doomsday plans. As the quintet were in the Russian's home, they were attacked by Captain America.  The Avenger had the upper hand at first, but was hit from behind by Raoul.  The Skull gloated about "Der Tag" to his enemy, but escaped quickly as Captain America took out his agents with little effort.

Comments: Created by Roy Thomas, Arvell Malcolm Jones, and David and Dan Day.

Raoul is the only one named in the story. "Chromium Blue" is named due to his armor's color. "Clash" is due to the hideously-colored armor he wears (get it? It clashes?). "Silent Scream" because he never talks.
