Synopsis for "Uncle Sam Wants You!"

The first meeting of the "full roster" of the All-Star Squadron is crashed by Uncle Sam, who reveals that he has come from an Earth in which the Nazis are even closer to victory than on this one, and the heroes whom he recruited to help him fight the enemy there are all dead. As the All-Stars debate whether or not to accompany Sam, the hero known as Midnight bursts in with a metal box, within which is the unmoving form of Doll Man.

Sam tells the assembled heroes about Earth-X and how he recruited some Earth-Two heroes to help out over there.

All-Star Squadron writer Roy Thomas explains the reasoning behind the tale in the letter column

  • This is the first time that the existence of Earth-Two Aquaman is shown after the Golden Age. Seven years before this issue, in Adventure Comics #462's Justice Society story's introduction, Paul Levitz even states that Aquaman is a character who is exclusive to Earth-One, implying DC had either forgotten about him, retconned the Earth-Two Aquaman out of existence, or retconned his adventures into being adventures of the Earth-One Aquaman.
  • A Post-Crisis version of Uncle Sam's account of the battle between the first team of Freedom Fighters and the Japanese Naval Air Force appears in Secret Origins (Volume 2) #26.
