"The struggle is what brings us all together. People who have nothing in common. For we are, after all, simply one world and one people."
―Flag Smasher[src]

Karli Morgenthau, also known as the Flag Smasher, is a super soldier, masked anarchist, and the leader of the anti-patriotism group Flag Smashers.


Early Life

Supported by Mama Donya

"I don't remember my mother, or my father, same goes for siblings, grandparents, cousins. What I do remember is being alone. Worse than being hungry or cold, or scared, I was alone, until Mama Donya. Like a lot of you here, she saved me, clothed me, fed me, loved me."
―Karli Morgenthau[src]

Robbery of Gasel Bank

At the Gasel Bank in Switzerland, Morgenthau provided masks for the other Flag Smashers and Joaquín Torres to attack and rob the bank. Morgenthau kept herself hidden while Dovich smashed through the window with the stolen money, before handing it over to Gigi and DeeDee, allowing them to escape and the cops to be unable to stop them. Following the robbery, Morgenthau disappeared into the crowd with the money, while Dovich attacked police officers and Torres.[1]

Chase in Munich

Morgenthau and the other Flag Smashers traveled to Munich, Germany to load up boxes of medicine and vaccines into transport trucks. While getting the boxes at the abandoned factory, they realized they were being spied upon by Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes and escaped onto the highway. Morgenthau hid in one of the trucks pretending to be a hostage, while Barnes broke inside and tried to help her, only for her to kick him out with superhuman force. She then jumped on top of the truck and hit Barnes, who was being restrained. Upon seeing Redwing flying overhead, Morgenthau jumped with superhuman agility and snapped the drone in half. Seconds later, Wilson flew in and kicked her backward. She and the other Flag Smashers then witnessed John Walker and Lemar Hoskins' arrival, who joined the fight. However, after easily defeating them, Morgenthau and her team made their escape.[2]

Finding Refuge

"We're not playing no more. We can't let the same assholes who were put back in power after the Blip win. The GRC care more about the people who came back than the ones who never left. We got a glimpse of how things could be. I need to know that you're all committed, because after tomorrow, there's no going back."
―Karli Morgenthau to the Flag Smashers[src]

Flag Smasher finding shelter for her allies

Morgenthau and the Flag Smashers fled to Switzerland to a secret facility owned by Rudy, who offered them temporary refuge. Expressing gratitude toward his generous gesture, Morgenthau and the others explored the facility and made it to the bedroom. While they discussed their actions, Nico hacked into the security cameras at the abandoned warehouse they gathered at in Germany to erase the video footage of them smuggling the supplies.[2]

Escape in Bratislava

Ultimately, Morgenthau and the Flag Smashers left and traveled to Bratislava, Slovakia, where they intended to take off via airplane to evade the US government. As Matias offered himself as a distraction, Morgenthau received a message from the Power Broker, who threatened to personally kill her and her rogue team members for stealing the Super Soldier Serums in Madripoor. The pilot forces her onto the plane as they take off, and Morgenthau watches in horror as Matias is shot multiple times and killed.[2]

Powers and Abilities


  • Artificially Enhanced Physiology: The Super Soldier Serum enhanced all of Morgenthau's bodily functions, such as her strength.
    • Enhanced Strength: Morgenthau exerts a level of strength beyond a normal human, being strong enough to send Bucky Barnes flying several meters with a hit, defeat both Falcon and a non-enhanced John Walker, and easily destroy Redwing. She also managed to kill Battlestar with a punch that led to an impact with enough blunt trauma for him to die almost instantly.
    • Enhanced Durability: Morgenthau was able to withstand blunt force trauma and gunshot wounds from Zemo and Falcon.
    • Regenerative Healing Factor: Morgenthau is able to heal from wounds at a much quicker rate than that of a normal human. Despite being shot by Baron Zemo, at least once, she quickly recovered and showed no signs of weakness during her fight with John Walker, Falcon, Battlestar, and Bucky Barnes.
