Powers/Abilities: Wilhelm Schultz possesses the normal human strength level of a man of his age, weight and build who engages in extensive regular exercises. He has no superhuman powers, but he is a seasoned and experienced military commander trained in the arts of warfare and military munitions including unarmed combat with great ferocity. He is quite adept with a knife.

History: (Silver Sable#9 (fb)) - Wilhelm Schultz was a Nazi military commander during World War Two, but under unresolved circumstances, he avoided being captured for his crimes against humanity by the Allied Forces. Eventually, he made contact with the National Front, a splinter group of the Ku Klux Klan funded by Spanish bank robbers in order to smuggle himself into the United States.

His flight from justice, however, was hampered by Ernst Sablinovia (father of Silver Sable) and the Wild Pack, a team of Symkarian soldiers specifically trained for pursuing escaped war criminals. Schultz was linked to the National Front and cornered while in their presence by the Wild Pack. Schultz was briefly underestimated as an old man by Silver Sable in the early stages of her training and he very nearly got the upper hand on her, but she followed out her father's orders and killed Schultz by impaling him through the back.  

Comments: Created by Gregory Wright, Steven Butler and Jim Sanders III

A Nazi war criminal and Sable's first known kill, Wilhelm Schultz was obviously named after two of TV's least dangerous Nazi soldiers: Luftwaffe Stalag Commandant Wilhelm Klink, and Luftwaffe Sergeant and former toy-maker Hans Schultz. ("What? You didn't know Schultz was a toy-maker before the war?" - Wm Uchtman, member of the Hogan's Heroes Fan Club.)

Wilhelm Schultz has to be among the most obscure figures of the Marvel Universe. His entire appearance occurs entirely in flashback.
