General Widowmaker

Real Name: Kitwana AbadamOccupation: Assassin, Prime MinisterIdentity: Known to world leaders, intelligence agencies and underworld figuresLegal Status: Citizen of the Democratic Republic of Yarwanda wanted in several countries (his status as a known assassin has forced the U.N. to revoke Diplomatic Immunity for Yarwandan diplomats)Place of Birth: The Democratic Republic of YarwandaKnown Relatives: NoneGroup Affiliation: Yarwandan National Armed Forces.Brief Personal History: Kitwana Abadam was born in the year 1939 in the small yet prosperous French-African colony of Yarwanda. Blessed with superior intelligence and fortunate enough to be a member of a well to do family, the youth was sent to Oxford University at the age of 15. It came as a shock to many when Kitwana enlisted in the French Armée Colonial (Colonial Army) after earning a B.A.’s in History and Political Science. Not many of his family members knew that young Kitwana had become associated with many "black-emancipation intellectuals” while abroad -and his belief that the burgeoning African Liberation Movement would need defending, led him to seek military expertise.Kitwana’s keen intellect, physical prowess and family connections enabled his quick rise through the ranks and he volunteered for additional training at every opportunity. Through a series of fortunate incidents, stellar recommendations and well placed bribes he was selected to undergo the training necessary to become a member of the Commando Marine (French Special Forces). The driven young man excelled at the grueling 20 week training program and finished with the highest scores any recruit had recorded in years. By the time Kitwana earned his green beret, France was losing its hold on its colonies. Independence was in the air.When Yarwanda gained its independence and became the Democratic Republic of Yarwanda, Kitwana joined the National Defense Force and was elevated to the rank of Captain. However he feared that European powers would never truly respect their former colonies’ sovereignty and urged military commanders in his own country and throughout decolonized Africa to step up their intelligence and military Research and Development efforts. When the WW2 Axis superhumans Fuerrgott and Blackfrost attacked the United Nations and John Henry revealed himself to the world, Capt. Abadam’s worst fears seemed to take life; superhuman agents serving hostile governments and their agendas were the worst threat he could possibly imagine.Captain Abadam convinced the military leaders of several African nations to assemble their brightest scientific minds and to provide him with the resources needed to assemble a strike team which would conduct a raid on the undersea detention center where the two superhumans were held. Their mission would be simple - acquire biological samples from one or both captives so that African nations could jumpstart their own superhuman operative programs. Using stolen information, Abadam and his team trained for months, simulating an assault on a facility that most believed impregnable. In fact so many soldiers lost their lives while training for the operation that the entire enterprise soon earned a most foreboding nickname; "Project Widowmaker.”Eventually Capt. Abadam and his men conducted a successful operation; escaping with blood and tissue samples from Nazi powerhouse Fuerrgott. With samples in hand, the race to unlocking the secrets of superhuman abilities for African nations was on. Naturally, Capt. Abadam was selected to be the first recipient of the finished process and he envisioned himself as the first warrior of a legion that would finally ensure Africa’s safety.However, shortly before he was to undergo the process Abadam learned that several leaders of the project (a group that included several of the most important politicians and military leaders on the continent) planned to employ their nascent superhuman army as a bloody weapon in their bid to
