- You see...The master race shall always triumph...!
- -- Adolf Hitler src
Adolf Hitler was the leader of the Nazi Party and dictator of Nazi Germany. Driven by his fierce German nationalism and racially motivated ideology, he was responsible for leading the outbreak of World War II in Europe and the genocide of millions of innocent lives, whom Hitler deemed racially inferior, known as The Holocaust.
During World War I, a young Hitler, still a corporal in the German Army, along with Josef Stalin and a young Asian man, visited Anton Arcane during his early experiments in re-animating the dead. Still later, Anton Arcane claimed to have manipulated Hitler into inciting World War II as a means of acquiring corpses to experiment upon.
Spear of Destiny
In 1940, Hitler acquired the powerful mystical artifact known as the Spear of Destiny. He used it to try to kill Green Lantern (Alan Scott) and the Flash (Jay Garrick). The attempt was unsuccessful due to the timely intervention of the Spectre.
In 1941, Hitler allied himself with the Dragon King, creating a mystic barrier around German and Japanese territories. This barrier successfully protected them from the intervention of any magic based superhero.
Near the end of the war, Hitler attempted to use the Spear of Destiny to link the fate of the Nordic gods' Ragnarok to that of the universe. Immediately following the events of the Crisis on Infinite Earths, the mystical power of the Spectre, who was lying dormant following his battle with the Anti-Monitor, was tapped into by the Spear in 1945 as Hitler cast the spell, and the universe was destroyed through time as the Nordic gods lost Ragnarok. Dr. Fate transported members of the Justice Society of that present time to Asgard of 1945 to change the course of Ragnarok to keep the universe from being destroyed. As a result of the change, Hitler discovered that his plans were defeated.
During the Battle of Berlin, the Unknown Soldier was sent on a mission to stop a Nazi super-weapon, vampiric octopuses called "Nosferatu". On April 29, 1945, he infiltrated Hitler's bunker, killing him and assuming the dictator's identity in order to call off the weapon's deployment. He then made Hitler's death look like a suicide.
