Origin

The creature known as Man Fish roamed the jungles near Rio De Muerte, the "River of Death". Captain America was in Rio De Muerte trying to escape from a corrupt prison warden named Hector Santiago but was better known as the Swine. While Captain America was roaming the jungle, he was attacked by Man Fish. A fight ensued but was suddenly interrupted by gunfire from some of the prison guards. Man Fish flees into the deep jungle and the guards pursue Captain America. Captain America tries to escape but falls into a pit trap. Hector appears with some guards and orders one of them to hand him a flame thrower. Before the Swine can use the flame thrower on Cap, he is suddenly attacked by Man Fish. The creature ends up killing Hector and his guards. Captain America and Donna Maria escape the pit but encounter the Man Fish. Captain America does his best to stop the creature but nothing seems to hurt Man Fish.  During the fight, the creature's attention is diverted and ignores Cap and Donna Maria. The creatures walks away and returns to the river. Man Fish disappears into the river and then the man known as Arnim Zola appears in front of Captain America. Arnim Zola introduces himself and tells Captain America that Man Fish is one of his subjects he created.
