Freedom Fighters (2009)
Sea Wolf has been a prisoner of Enclave A since the ending days of World War II. He told the members of the Freedom Force this before they were thrown into an underground level with an unknown species. He may have broken out of other high risk prisons in the past.
The experimentation from the Axis Powers may have given him longjevity and has kept his powers at a very high level. There also must have been an area for him to be underwater since he can only survive for short periods of time out of water.
