HistoryEdit

Baron Blitzkrieg.

Baron Blitzkrieg.

World War II

Baron Blitzkrieg was a frequent opponent of the heroic All-Star Squadron, a band of costumed adventurers who fought domestic and foreign menaces during World War II. Baron Blitzkrieg was originally an especially vicious German army officer who was blinded when a concentration camp prisoner threw acid into his face. (Steel was a prisoner in the camp at the time.) German scientists experimented on Blitzkrieg, giving injections of experimental drugs, designed to siphon off the mind's vast energies. This allowed him full control, for brief periods, of his body's resources. At any given instant he could have superhuman strength, or be incredibly swift, or have the ability to fly.[1]

Modern Age

Baron Blitzkrieg joined Alexander Luthor's Secret Society of Super-Villains. The Philadelphia heroine known as Liberty Belle, who got her powers from the Liberty Bell, attempted to jump start her abilities by ringing the bell. However, due to the recent supposed death of Uncle Sam, her powers were unfocused, and Blitzkrieg was thought to have been killed by the sonic shockwaves. However, he reappeared shortly thereafter, only to be killed by Superboy-Prime who fried the Baron's head with his heat vision.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

Powers

  • Unique Physiology: Blitzkrieg was experimented on by scientists seeking to give him access to all his body's resources for limited periods of times. At any point he could call on one of a number of powerful strengths.

Abilities

Weaknesses

  • Power Limitation: Baron could only manifest one power at time in his full potential, or would split his psycho-energy between simultaneous abilities.
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder: If blinded, Baron would come in panic and have severe flashbacks related with his acid injuries.

NotesEdit

  • Although this character was originally introduced during DC's Earth-Two era of publication, their existence following the events of the 1985-86 limited series Crisis on Infinite Earths remains intact. However, some elements of the character's Pre-Crisis history may have been altered or removed for Post-Crisis New Earth continuity, and no longer apply.

TriviaEdit

  • Baron Blitzkrieg has been called Reiter.
  • Baron Blitzkrieg has facial scars from an acid attack.
  • Baron Blitzkrieg weighs 345 lbs in his armored form.[citation needed]
  • Baron Blitzkrieg's corpse was made a member of the Black Lantern Corps.
