  1. What I’d really like to see is a comprehensive history tracing the evolution of Dr. Abraham Erskine’s super-soldier serum, and the many attempts at its recreation since the precise, perfected formula was lost after his death. That would incorporate characters like the Mighty Destroyer, Master Man, Victorius, the 1950s Captain America and Bucky, and even the variant version of the super-soldier serum, the Infinity Formula (which kept Nick Fury young for decades). I’ve probably forgotten some examples too, but those are the ones that stick out. Obviously there was *some* partial data recorded on the formula’s creation, somewhere other than what Erskine had locked in his brain, that became the basis for the creation of all those other characters. It would be interesting to trace how those fragments of data on the original formula wended their way from one place to another down through Marvel history. It’s interesting that there’s a connection between the original “Operation Rebirth” and the Weapon X program, but it’s more along the lines of just a general attempt to create a super-soldier of *some* kind by whatever means was available, and not an attempt to recreate the original super-soldier serum (and let’s not forget those “Vita-Rays”!)

    • Oh yeah, there was Nuke (from DAREDEVIL), and a couple of other super-soldier prototypes from CAPTAIN AMERICA.
