Dr. Carl Mortner was a pioneer in the field of steroid development.
As Hans Glaub, under Nazi reign, his experiments testing and manipulating
steroid developments on unborn foetuses were at the expense of
Jewish women and children in concentration camps during World
War II. Entrusted with the job of using steroids to create a super
race of human beings, the fall of Germany ended his projects and
he became a prize of war quickly seized by the Soviets. Though
most of Glaub's steroid babies ended up aborting, a few survived
with phenomenal I.Q's and one slight side effect: they were psychotics.
Glaub's prize creation was Max Zorin, a blonde hair, blue eyed
Aryan psychopath to whom Glaub became a father figure, looking
on him as both his son and ultimate success.
Working for the KGB Mortner was allowed to "defect"
to the west with Zorin to further Soviet objectives. Mortner was
involved in surgically enhancing racehorse performance and it
was his steroid/microchip invention that gave Pegasus her extra
stamina. Having seen Zorin fall to his death Mortner attempted
to kill Bond with a bundle of dynamite, but ultimately caused
his own destruction as the bundle exploded inside the airship.
