Arnim Zola is a fictional character that is a supervillain appearing in the Marvel Comics universe. He is a master of biochemistry, and frequent foe of Captain America and the Avengers.

In "Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes", During World War II, Arnim Zola experimented with creating monsters to aid the Nazis and HYDRA in their global conquest. Eventually, he was captured by the agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and imprisoned in the Big House. Arnim Zola escaped his cell after a blackout happened in the Big House. He went into hiding in his previous secret hideout.

His most notable creation are the Doughboy minions. He often gives Zemo a medical checkup every week about his condition. He even allows him to borrow the Doughboys to distract the Avengers while Zemo gets inside the Avengers Mansion to kill Captain America.

But the plan failed, as Zemo returns to Zola's lair, he discovered Zola's unconscious body surrounded by the Enchantress and Skurge in an offer to form the Masters of Evil to destroy the Avengers.

After the recruitment of other villains into the Masters of Evil is complete, they went into the Mansion to defeat the Avengers in an ensuing battle, only Zola stayed behind to guard their lair.

When the Enchantress and Skurge came back with the Norn Stones, he was among the Masters of Evil with new members waiting for them. Though Zemo ordered everyone to seven separate locations to guard the stones, Zola stayed behind again for he has no hero to fight.

Later, the Enchantress (along with Skurge) came to find out where Zemo was. He told her he was watching both Chemistro and the Living Laser when she made them offers, and was concerned with the Grey Gargoyle's fate. She then threatens him by ordering him to tell her where Zemo was or she would make him "learn" Grey Gargoyle's fate. He refuses and allows both Enchantress and Executioner to be swallowed in a surprise attack by Doughboy. After he thinks he's won and strokes Doughboy, Zola watches in a horrified state as his pet solidifies and explodes by Enchantress from the inside. She then tells him that he just made a fatal mistake and kills Zola with a blast, with Zemo watching the whole thing on a security camera.

In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Arnim Zola was the Germany's top scientist that worked breifly for the SA. Then he was recruited by the SS officer Johann Schmidt (AKA, The Red Skull), to work and design weapons for him. Then, when HYDRA was organized he became second in command and personal scientist of Johann Schmidt. After HYDRA forces found the Tesseract, Schmidt asked Zola if he could study its power, and accidentaly he discovered how to transform its energy into advanced laser ammunitions and engines. He designed advanced weapons for HYDRA when they became separated from the Nazi-Germany. After the death of Bucky; who had previously been tortured and subjected to unknown experiments under Zola's subjugation, Arnim was captured by Captain America and the Howling Commandos and interrogated by Col. Chester Phillips. He told them everything he knew about HYDRA and revealed that Schmidt's plans were of world domination.
