Origin

Soon after Baron Zemo was decapitated by the assassin Scourge, John Watkins, the grandson of the original Citizen V, woke from his long-time comma.


What was not known at the time is that Zemo's mind survived by inhabiting Watkins' brain via a bio-modem. Assuming his role as Baron Zemo once more by using Watkins as his vehicle the villain was able to infiltrate his former allies in the Thunderbolts.


Watkins was eventually able to reclaim his body and defeat Zemo, who escaped once again with assistance from his ally the Fixer.


Watkins has now taken over his hereditary role as Citizen V.
