|Dr. Adele Burkhart|
Nuclear physics; Humanitarian
Strongly opinionated with a deep sense for humanity, this trait has gotten Dr. Adele Burkhart in trouble on more than one occasion. Despite this, she remains one of the world's top nuclear physicists.
A Real American Hero comics continuity - Marvel Comics
Burkhart was speaking against the military for misleading her into participating in a top secret project that would use nuclear technology in application as a military weapon. A "Doomsday Project" so to speak. She was speaking to the press about it when Cobra came and took out her security detail and kidnapped her. The Joes were sent in to rescue her. When Snake-Eyes and Scarlett managed to reach her, she was being held at gunpoint by Cobra Commander. Refusing more blood to be shed because of her, she tried to sacrifice herself by committing the Commander to fire his gun on her, thus allowing the Joes to take action on him. She survived the ordeal and becomes grateful to the Joes for rescuing her and reconsidering her previously critical stance regarding the military.

Burkhart was speaking against the military for misleading her into participating in a top secret project that would use nuclear technology in application as a military weapon. A "Doomsday Project" so to speak. She was speaking to the press about it when Cobra invited her to join them at their retreat to discuss peaceful ways to resist the US Government's plans to misuse her technology.
The Joes were sent in to capture her and force her cooperation. When Snake-Eyes and Scarlett managed to reach her, she attemped to immediately surrender, asking only the the Joes not harm Father Cobra or his followers. The Joes simply laughed, taking her captive and then slaughtering most of Father Cobra's unarmed followers nonetheless. Father Cobra managed to escape, and started militarizing his people for defense after this slaughter
Burkhart survived the ordeal and remains a captive of the Joes, forced to work on the Global Orbital Defense Satellite program, only hardening her already critical stance regarding the military.
