Circus Strong Man
Place of Birth
Stronger than the average human
Much of Zandow's life before the 1930's is unknown. It is then that Zandow joined Tiboldt's Circus (a small Austrian travel circus managed for generations by members of the Tiboldt family) as their hired muscle; thus, earning his nickname "Zandow the Strong Man." (To learn about Tiboldt's Circus, just click on the highlighted name above.)
Soon after, Fritz Tiboldt (then manager and ringmaster of the circus) became active in the Nazi Party activities. After World War II began, Tiboldt was asked by German
intelligence to take his circus to the United States to tour and give
performances in major cities; however, they were actually using the circus as a guise to murder high government officials. Zandow was one of the members who were loyal to their cause. (To learn about the character and/or team above, just click on their highlighted names.)
Later, when agent Betsy Ross witnessed the murder of Commissioner Newsome, Zandow and the other members of the Tibdolt's Circus attempted to capture her. When Captain America (Steve Rogers) and Bucky Barnes arrived and tried to save Betsy, it was Zandow who actually ended up knocking both Captain America and
Bucky out and took off with Betsy Ross. However, it wasn't long after, that Captain America came again for Betsy and this time Zandow was not as fortunate. The strong man was beat and the operations of Tibdolt's Circus was destroyed. (Click on the highlighted names above to learn about the different characters.)
What happened to Zandow after this is a mystery. And his current whereabouts are unknown.
There is nothing there, but her is the Marvel.com bio link for Zandow, http://marvel.com/universe/Zandow.
Jerome Zandow appears on the TV series Marvel's Agent Carter. Much like the comics, Zandow was hired muscle. And similar to the comics, Zandow used to be a sideshow performer.
