    Default Armageddon - retconned "Golden Age" villain

    First appearance = Wonder Woman #234 (August 1977):






    Armageddon's plot would continue in issues #235-236 and even involve Dr. Mid-Nite (Charles McNider).

    And here I initially thought this was an Earth 1 story and that was Blockbuster that Wonder Woman was fighting.

    So many Nazi villains

    I mean it's the era... no wait... this is 77... but she did have war villains.

    So what's the story on these Nazi villains post-war?

    For anyone not familiar with the Wonder Woman stories published back in the 1970s, there was a period of about one year (1977 into 1978) where the focus of the comic books shifted from the (then) present-day Wonder Woman (of Earth-One) to her Golden Age, Earth-Two counterpart during the WWII era. This was around the same time when there was the Wonder Woman TV show with Lynda Carter, and the first season was set during the WWII era. (This was during issues #228-243, and also involved the Wonder Woman feature in World's Finest Comics from issues #244-250.)

    Some of them, like Baron Blitzkrieg and Kung, were later used in both other WWII-set stories (like Roy Thomas' All-Star Squadron) as well as in other books set in the present-day.
    As for Armageddon, I believe he was used in another WWII-set story written by Phil Jimenez when Diana travelled back to the past where her mother Hippolyta was active as the "Golden Age" Wonder Woman.

    You're correct. Jimenez did use Armegeddon in his run. Diana had traveled back in time, disguised herself as Miss America, and teamed up with her mother, Hippolyta, who was the Wonder Woman of that era.
