    Default Does DC have any superhero titles set during WW2?

    Like Marvel's Invaders title back in the 1970s, it was set back during the war. Does DC have an equivalent, outside the Golden Age?

    Well if we are not counting golden age I believe the new 52 had a handful of soldier comics. I remember Men of War and Star Spangled War Stories but Iím unsure of if those are WW2, I didnít read them.

    All-Star Squadron. It was an utter tour-de-force by Roy Thomas, one of comics most knowledgeable and affectionate experts on the Golden Age (also the creator of The Invaders). I regard it as one of DC's best books of the 1980s. Still annoys me at how CoIE gutted it.

    I've sometimes wished that he would try something similar with Invaders.

    That’d be so great!
    Marvel does have a lot of WWII characters to choose from if someone really wanted to.

    Besides the All-Star Squadron, D.C. used to have a strong line of comics set in World War Two. Their war books were one of the strongest sellers and dependable for decades.

    For a time during the mid-'70s (due to the Lynda Carter program), the Wonder Woman comic book was set during WWII (utilizing the Earth-2 version of the character). In fact, the first Wondy comic I ever bought was the beginning of that era arc.

    The latest Freedom Fighters run took place in an alternate earth where the Nazi's won world war 2. (Sort of like the Amazon show The Man In the High Castle) Probably not what your looking for, but it will give you superheroes fighting Nazi's.
