Axel Kaspers is a former left-wing militant from Germany who formed a new terrorist cell in New York City that targeted Continental Bankcorp and other entities in the banking world.

While in Germany, his then-girlfriend introduced him to the Red Army Faction. She committed suicide in prison. Kaspers spent five years in German prison. He was paroled in 1985.

Kaspers adopted Birgit Kaspers at one point. In 2009, he convinced her to join him in his attempt to start a revolution.

Following a failed standoff at the Continental Bankcorp Wall Street branch, Kaspers was convicted on multiple murder and terrorism charges and sentenced to life in federal prison. (CI: "Revolution")
