In March of 1941, Adolf Hitler's panzer division rolled across Europe. Hitler acknowledged and respected the power of Brother Blood's church and refused to invade Zandia. In December of that year, the son of the reigning Brother Blood was born and the cycle began anew. The prophecy was realized again some forty years later when the son (who had been living abroad) returned to Zandia and fought with his father to the death in the blood pool. This man became the eighth Brother Blood.
- In New Teen Titans #14, Deathstroke the Hunted #0 and others, Zandia is placed in the Baltic Sea. Later sources place it just east of Sicily.
