First kidnapping over 100 innocent people, Muse strings them up and constantly drains them of their blood, leaving them near-death, and uses said blood to paint a giant mural in a public location. Later, after murdering close to a dozen [[ComicBook/TheInhumans Inhumans]] and posing their bodies, Muse kidnaps 4 people and plans to [[ColdBloodedTorture torture them to death]], starting by [[EarAche lopping off one's ear]], then captures Daredevil's sidekick, Blindspot, whose [[EyeScream eyes he gouges out]] as a sick play on the young teen's name. Muse's lair is a nightmarish museum of depravity and agony, as it displays piles of skulls, heads on pikes, butchered corpses, and removed organs hanging from strings, all gathered throughout his months of murdering civilians. In the end, Muse tries to fatally wound his hundred blood-drained captives to distract Daredevil while he makes his escape, and, even when caught, refuses to show regret, empathy, or guilt for what his atrocities, displaying nothing but gleeful passion at how "artistic" his story has turned out to be.

** Second Annual: Armin Zola is just as twisted as his Earth-616 counterpart. A [[MadScientist scientist]] working for the [[ThoseWackyNazis Nazis]] in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII, Zola [[PlayingWithSyringes experiments]] on concentration camp inmates, in order to create SuperSoldiers for the Third Reich. Zola's experiments usually result in death, with the grounds of his castle littered with mutilated corpses, some corpses even stuck on pikes, and the castle acts as a de facto camp with more inmates imprisoned so Zola can experiment on them later. Captain America confronts Zola and defeats him, with Captain America thinking him dead; the US government saves Zola's life, so he can make weapons for them. Zola eventually dies, but the US government uses his brainwaves to create an AI so that Zola can continue to make weapons for them. One day a white supremacist named [[RightWingMilitiaFanatic Thomas Jenks]], leader of a gang called the Marauders, attacks the facility holding the Zola AI, freeing it, thinking Zola will help his cause. Zola [[UngratefulBastard repays Jenks]] by turning him into a 12-foot mindless hulking monster called [=''SeigSoldat-X''=] and using his body to host Zola's AI program. Zola has the Marauders kidnap minorities across the US, so he can experiment on them, resulting in several more gruesome murders.
