Ten years later he injected the serum into his own body, but unfortunately the rudimentary serum gave him side effects. After getting the serum he did get superpowers, but his personality turned more aggressive and his body burned red, because of that he was called the Red Skull.
2. Captain America
The next MCU character to use the Super Soldier serum is Captain America. According to the story, after conducting dangerous experiments, Abraham went to prison, then Peggy Carter saved him and he joined the United States Strategic Scientific Reserve.
There Abraham perfected his serum so that it could be used by American soldiers during the war against Hydra.

So according to the story, at first General Thaddeus Ross decided to reformulate the Super Soldier program. In the experiment, Ross recruited Bruce Banner to be part of the development team.
But Ross didn’t tell him its true purpose, so Bruce thought the serum was harmless and tried it on himself. In the experiment Bruce replaced the Vita Radiation in Steve Roger’s experiment with Gamma Radiation, because of this he turned into the Hulk.
The next MCU character to use the Super Soldier serum is Abomination. So Emil Blonsky is part of the special forces of the United States army, he gets the task of capturing Bruce Banner who has turned into the Hulk.
Realizing that he was an ordinary man without superpowers, Emil received a serum from the government so that he could gain superpowers. But the strength he gained wasn’t enough to fight the Hulk, so he received more doses that mentally disturbed him.
Because of this, he became so obsessed with surpassing the Hulk that Emil did the crazy thing of incorporating the Hulk’s blood into his body. As a result of his actions, he turned into a monstrous giant called Abomination.

The next MCU character who uses the Super Soldier serum is Isaiah Bradley. For those of you who don’t know, he is a United States soldier who received the Super Soldier serum, at first he thought that the government gave him tetanus medicine.
