Madame Hydra

"Hail, HYDRA! Immortal HYDRA! We shall never be destroyed! Cut off a limb, and two more shall take its place!" - HYDRA Oath
 Well, well, well. Madame Hydra. Probably one of the most notorious and seductively villainous women in the Marvel comic book universe. Created by the incredibly talented Jim Steranko, she first strutted onto the scene in Captain America #110 in early 1969. Also known as Viper (appropriate), the original Madame Hydra remained relatively cool, calm and collected as her HYDRA lackeys bit the dust in a bid for world conquest.

Sexy, sophisticated and at turns completely insane the character aged quite well thanks to a succession of different women assuming the Madame Hydra mantle. In fact, the current wearer of the title is none other than...but that would be a spoiler. If you want to know go read some comics, fanboy!

What do you think? Too butch?

Fugly modeling on the game.

It's Ilsa, She-Wolf of the SS! Wait...

Reminds me of Joan Jett.


Strike a pose...

Vicious, deadly...and hotter than Georgia asphalt in August.

HYDRA wants you!

That hand looks like it's missing something. Probably Nick Fury's testicles.

Sensing a hand meme coming on.

Steranko is just a master of design.
