    For those who don’t read Marvel’s comics, specifically their limited “Fear Itself” storyline, Hydra’s Department of Occult Armaments are a group of villainous ghouls with demonic and terrifying creatures, including Lieutenant Belial, Rotwrap, Sin, and Malpractice, among others. While their tenure in Marvel’s canon was not exactly long, the D.O.A. left an impression among those who greatly enjoy Marvel’s creepier characters, and with a one-off streaming special, the D.O.A. could become the MCU’s eerie equivalent to the Justice League Dark.
