Before he gave the wolrd the Fantastic Four, comic genius Stan Lee gave us The Destroyer. Though not as big a star as the Timely Comics' big three The Human Torch, Namor or Captain America, he still enjoyed a healthy run, appearing in virtually every Timely Comics anthology, According to Wikipedia:

.
"The character's origin, posits American journalist Keen Marlow, who is captured for spying while reporting behind-the-lines in Nazi Germany. While imprisoned in a concentration camp that specific phrase being used, though before its association with the Holocaust Marlow is given a Super Soldier serum by fellow prisoner Professor Eric Schmitt, an anti-Nazi German scientist. Responding to the chemical, Marlow becomes a prime human specimen who escapes, dons a costume, and adopts a fearsome identity with which he fights the Nazis on their own turf."

Mystic Comics #6 / Spr. 1942
Cover Art by Alex Schomburg

"Marlow is enhanced by a Super Soldier Serum variant, similar to the one used to create Captain America (Steve Rogers), but lacking the special 'vita ray' treatment. His abilities seem to be at maximum peak human levels, except for his strength, which seems a little bit higher than Steve's"

.  

"The Destroyer's sleek, dark costume with a skull motif, his skin-tight blue mask that made him appear inhuman, and his occasional cover appearances worked to make the character more memorable than many others of his era. He was the company's most published character outside of its three principal stars and the Angel."

.  

The model I've designed is patterned directly from the cover above featuring Destroyer's first appearance. However, I haven't had a chance to build this one yet - so it's still a beta. Please let me know if you encounter any glitches.
