Hi! I was just wondering what DC was now saying was the reason none of the most powerful heroes of WWII never went to Nazi Germany in an attempt to end WWII.

In the Bronze Age, it was The Holy Grail and Spear of Destiny that turned Allied magic-susceptible (sp?) towards "the dark side."

In the Modern Age, the reason Green Lantern and Flash didn't go was because of a Nazi who had the power to nullify the powers of other mystery-men.

I was wondering if DC ever settled on one answer, or if they used both to explain why the JSA/All-Star Squadron/Freedom Fighters/Young All-Stars (and whomever else they had) never trekked to Nazi Germany en masse.

Thanks!

I may be wrong but post-Crisis I believe it was still the Spear of Destiny and the Holy Grail. I never heard about the Nazi who had the nullifying powers.

In my recollection, the Nazi nullifier thing only was shown in the Elseworlds story "The Golden Age" and was allegedly the "real reason" no Allied heroes went to Europe. I don't recall any mention of that anywhere else, but as is so oftern the case, I could be wrong.

Yeah, I knew the Nazi Nullifier (what WAS his name? Percival?) was in The Golden Age, but for some reason, I thought it was kind of incorporated to take out those like The Flash and others like him who wouldn't be affected by The Spear or Holy Grail.

Thanks! \:\)

The Spear and Holy Grail were "revealed" to be hoaxes, so that none of the JSA or any other heroes would be killed overseas during the war in The Golden Age.

Starman and Green Lantern went to Nazi Germany to capture Hitler, ran into the Nazi, and almost killed! They'd barely escaped with their lives.

You are aware that THE GOLDEN AGE is an Elseworlds story, right? Therefore its "hoaxes" are still canon in the DCU proper.

Oh, yeah, I knew that, Scott. I just thought they cherry-picked what they'd want to use and ignore the rest.

F'rinstance, I DID know of Tarantula living in Dick Grayson's apartment building for awhile. Say, what DID happent to him? I haven't kept up with modern comics in over a year, and quit the Bat-books before that.

Who did the cherry-picking, DC from THE GOLDEN AGE or James Robinson from continuity?

I have no clue what you are talking about here. Non sequitur.

I meant DC from The Golden Age, and Tarantula DIED in that book, didn't he?

I still have no idea why you brought up Dick Grayson and the Tarantula in this thread. But, yes, I recall that the Tarantula was living in Bludhaven and appeared in NIGHTWING.

I'm sorry, Scott. It was just to show that I DID know The Golden Age was an Elseworlds and to give an example of HOW I knew. \:\)

All clear now? \:\)
