- "We fought to the last man."
- ―Velt and the Red Skull
Velt was in charge of one of HYDRA's weapons facility. When Captain America and the Howling Commandos destroyed the facility, he survived the attack. When Red Skull arrived on the scene, Velt told him they fought to the last man. Red Skull responded by saying "Evidently not" and killed him with his Tesseract powered HYDRA Pistol.
