Meet William Burnside, 'Captain America 3's' rumored main villain
A crash course in the threequel's prospective big baddie
The Grand Director
Following his fight with the real Captain America and the Falcon, Burnside found himself under the care of Doctor Faustus. Unfortunately for Burnside, he made a bad choice of healthcare practitioner, as Faustus was actually one of Cap’s worst enemies. In 1979′s "Captain America" #231, the manipulative criminal mastermind used his brainwashing techniques to mold the former Captain America into the Grand Director, the leader of a Neo-Nazi group called the National Force. After coming face to face once again with Steve Rogers, Burnside was able to shake free of Faustus’ programming. The Grand Director sacrificed himself in a fire in order to save the day.
