War Comics Month Cross Over

In honor of Veteran's Day, several different Super Hero blogs will be posting war stories to remember those who have served in the armed forces.  I chose to focus on the Untold Origin of the JSA.

This is the story of how the original members of the Justice Society of America were banded together by the Government of the United states of America in order to bring down Hitler and his Third Reich.  Batman, Flash and Green Lantern are the first of the group to get "drafted" into action and set out on a mission to Germany to bring down Hitler.  However, they manage to get captured by a powerful Nazi robot.  Dr. Fate and Hourman come to the rescue and free the captured heroes only to find that Hitler is in possession of the Spear of Destiny with which he summons an army of Valkyries from the sky.  With the heroes overwhelmed by the Valkyrie and Nazi army, Dr. Fate uses his magic to reach out to several other heroes for help.  Dr. Fate's summons includes the most powerful entity/hero in existence; The Spectre, who manages to defeat the entire Nazi fleet almost singlehandedly.  The heroes discover a plot by the Nazi army to assassinate the president of the United States and move the battle to the United States where Superman is able to intercept incoming German missiles.  Inside the Oval Office, the Atom jumps in front of a Valkyrie blast saving the presidents life.  The Jsa is able to drive the Valkyrie and Nazi army back and defeat them.  This is how the greatest superheroes of Earth 2 band together as the JSA.  


  1. Thank you so much for posting this, Juan! I am a big fan of the JSA and having them in the context of the War is a big plus.

  2. Hey Luke, no problem at all. Glad to be a part of the crossover.
