Emil Blonsky was born in Russia and raised in England, where he eventually joined the Royal Marines of the British Armed Forces, and was swiftly promoted to the rank of Captain. Despite receiving an incredible track record, Blonsky refused to be promoted to Colonel, claiming that he wanted to be a fighter for as long as he could. Despite reaching the age of 39, Blonsky refused to allow his body to slow down, and continued to be considered one of the most formidable fighters in the Armed Forces. He and his team were eventually loaned to General Thaddeus Ross in his efforts to capture Bruce Banner better known as Hulk.
Becoming an "Abomination"
After failing the mission, Blonsky was injected with a small dose of the mothballed original Super Soldier Serum and later was injected with Bruce Banner's blood causing him to transform into the Hulk-sized Abomination. The Abomination proceeded to go on a rampage in Harlem until he was defeated by Hulk and captured by the United States Armed Forces.
Taken Custody of S.H.I.E.L.D.
AS the director of S.H.I.E.L.D., Colonel Nick Fury's superiors wanted Blonsky recruited into the Avengers Initiative due to his military record and status as a war hero. They planned to blame all the destruction he caused in Harlem on the Hulk, and ordered Fury to ask Gen. Ross to release him into S.H.I.E.L.D.'s custody. Instead, Fury tasked Agent Coulson to figure out a way to follow orders, yet ensure that Blonsky would remain imprisoned. Agent Sitwell urged the reluctant Coulson to send Tony Stark to meet with Ross and inadvertently sabotage the deal, thereby ensuring that Blonsky remained in the General's custody and off the Avengers for good. Stark was successful in annoying the General so much that it caused Blonsky to remain imprisoned. It was later revealed that Blonsky had been transferred to a cryo-cell in Barrow, Alaska, now in S.H.I.E.L.D.'s custody.
Freed and Recruited by Hydra
During the events of Hydra Uprising, Blonsky's prison facility was suddenly been infiltrated by Hydra forces and his cryo-cell was eventually been destroyed, waking Blonsky from cryogenic hibernation. As a result, Blonsky rages out and attacks every soldier in the facility before getting confronted by Baron von Strucker and convinces him to join their organization since they both have the same ideologies. Blonsky agrees to join and is now an agent of Hydra so he could seek revenge against Banner, Ross, and everyone else who had ruined his life that caused him to turn into a fearsome monster.
