Geist (Nikolaus Geist) was a supervillain first appearing in Wolverine #17. He was a cyborg, but had no superpowers. He was encased in a metal shell simply to survive, because he was so old.

Fictional character biography

Geist had been an advisor for Adolf Hitler during WWII, and gave Hitler ideas on how to run the concentration camps. To escape war crime punishment, he used German rocket scientists to help the OSS. He later participated in questionable CIA operations. During Wolverine #17 and later issues, however, he was an advisor to President Caridad, of the fictional South American country Tierra Verde. Caridad wanted Geist to create a superhero and champion for Tierra Verde, much like Captain America. He was experimenting on humans with a special crop of cocaine, which drove the victim mad. His main guinea pig was Roughouse. Wolverine learned of this, and even though Roughouse had been his enemy, he helped him escape.

Wolverine cut off Geist's metal shell, leaving him to die. ["Wolverine" #23] However, Geist somehow escaped. Soon after, Magneto caught up with him and apparently killed him.

Notes

Geist had a strange obsession with shaving.
