22 - Arnim Zola

This guy is one of the great comic book villains. Nazi geneticist, engineers himself a new body, but with the brain in the chest cavity (for protection, duh). And so you don't feel weird talking to him, he rigs up a projection of his face ON HIS CHEST. He doesn't even need a code name, because his birth name is Arnim freaking Zola.

Christ on a pogo stick.

This is the sort of stuff Jack Kirby came up with in his sleep. Zola isn't even one of the big Kirby villains, he's practically a throwaway. "What? We need a Captain America villain? Okay, how about a guy with his face on his chest, a metal box for a head, and he cloned Hitler a new body allowing him to survive the end of the war? Let's go for breakfast."
