During World War II, Wernher von Blitzschlag served Hitler's Nazi regime
with his vast knowledge in genetics, helping to create such agents as Master Man (Wilhelm Lohmer), Warrior Woman, and Wonder Knight. Genetically altering himself to generate and absorb electricity, Wernher also clashed with American heroes such as Isaiah Bradley
, who nearly killed him. After the war, Wernher hid in a bunker for years and stopped using his powers when they began to fade.
