In 1938, Hitler's Nazi Germany was on the verge of starting World War II (WWII). As part of Hitler's plans, he ensured that specialized units of Gestapo, SS, Luftwaffe, Army, Panzer, and Kriegsmarine forces were created. Amongst these units, an elite combat unit with representatives from each of their respective services were inducted into a secret yet dynamic powerhouse of super-powered and technological enhanced men and women. This elite band of Teutonic warriors was codenamed: "Axis Force".
Axis Force was lead by a notorious SS Colonel codenamed: Baron Berlin, and comprised of nearly six dozen uber-elite soldiers, commandos, pilots, strategists, interrogators, and tacticians, all of which were of Aryan heritage.
Once the Axis powers of Germany and Italy started (eventually including Japan), the Axis Force was to head up special, covert operations for the likes of Himmler, Hilter and Goering. Their first few campaigns had Axis Force working side by side with the SS and some of Hitler's hand-picked generals and admirals. Their first major engagement: the Boston Invasion.
The Nazis intended to sneak in saboteurs and members of the Axis Force via large cargo submarines into Boston Harbor and wreck havoc upon shipping, naval vessels and any infrastructure systems, such as water mains, electrical plants and communications. Should Boston be viable enough to hold, Baron Berlin was told the city would be his to conquer.
During the Boston Invasion, Baron Berlin, after devastating most of the port operations and electrical power plants and radio towers, decided to press his luck and take over Boston's City Hall and raise the Nazi flag atop the capitol building. In an incredible battle, the US troops, Army Air Corps and a newly formed Super-Group (SG) called the "Allied Fighters" countered their City Hall attack and drove the Baron and his Axis Force back to sea. Many of the Nazi troops that were captured committed suicide with cyanide capsules. Although Axis Force and its troops did enormous damage, it was still considered a 'debacle' by Hitler, who blamed Baron Berlin, for his 'cowardly' retreat. This event would have a profound repercussion later in the war.
For the next few years into the war, Axis Force lead some of the most daring and well-planned attacks against the Allies. MANY heroes and Allied troops fell before Axis Force. One of the biggest reasons that Axis Force did so well was due to a secret agent planted in amongst the heroes support group, known as Major Smith, but in Nazi circles by his true name and title of Major Carl Drahtizier. Drahtizier had mental powers and was able to read minds and telepathically transfer that information of what the Allies planned to do. He also minimized many details from getting out as to what and who Axis Force was. As far as the Allies knew, Baron Berlin and his Axis Force were considered the Nazi's godlike "Ubermench".
Throughout the war, Baron Berlin had also positioned himself to a level of power such that anything he wanted, he got. This included his "Axis Force" being the keepers and custodians of all the treasures raped and stolen from across Europe and Asia. Priceless artifacts, gold, silver, historical relics and hundreds of millions in currency.
Major Drahtizier was finally discovered as a Nazi spy by the first Miss Vindicator (who was pregnant at the time) in 1945. She phoned in the message to the Allied Fighters warning them about him,. Major Drahtizier caught her and nearly killed her, but was successful in killing her and then-Captain Invader's unborn child. Drahtizier miraculously escaped back to Berlin, and rejoined his fellow comrades in Axis Force.
As Germany began to lose the war in 1945, Baron Berlin knew full well that Germany was doomed and that Hitler was no longer in his right mind to lead the Third Reich. To this effect, he attempted to secret out all of the treasures and currency to remote 'neutral' countries or islands. Some of these treasures were tracked and found by a group loosely called the "Monuments Men", wherein that group reported to Washington and the Allied Fighters of Baron Berlin's duplicity.
This 'theft' did not go unnoticed, and through an incredible chain of events (which to this day Axis Force does not know of), the leader of the Allied Fighters, then-Captain Invader, directly encountered Hitler and informed him of the thefts done by Baron Berlin and his band of Axis Force thieves and soldiers. Captain Invader was allowed to leave unharmed that day, only because Hitler's anger with Baron Berlin had now reached super-critical levels. Still angry over the "Boston Invasion" debacle, Hitler instead decided to take action against Baron Berlin and his troops.
Hitler confronted Baron Berlin, demanding the treasures back. Baron Berlin said "no" to Hitler. Axis Force was then placed under arrest. Some of them were executed on site as examples. Hitler's generals convinced Hitler to stop the killings and instead, use the remaining more powerful Axis Force members (and Baron Berlin) to redeem themselves should Berlin become overrun by the Allies. Hitler decided to place the remaining 'human' Axis Force members in a classified, underground facility equipped with an experimental cryogenic system. This system was initially designed for Hitler and his staff, however, Hitler believed the system would be better used and tested as a 'frozen prison' for Axis Force for the meantime. Each remaining Axis Force member was forcefully and humiliatingly placed in cryogenic freeze.
In 1945, as the Battle of Berlin raged and the Soviets began to storm Berlin, an SS General was ordered to 'thaw' out Axis Force and prepare them for battle immediately to fight alongside the remnants of the Nazi troops. While en-route to the secret underground base, the General was killed by a Soviet sniper. Axis Force was never thawed. Berlin and Nazi Germany fell and World War II's war in Europe ended quickly thereafter.
Due to Hitler's 'displeasure' of Axis Force's actions, he had all documents, briefs, and family members of Axis Force destroyed and murdered, preventing anyone from knowing who or what "Axis Force" was. His goal was to 'wipe them out of the history books of the Third Reich' for their treacherous actions.
The hidden underground base was never discovered by the Allies. The Allies deduced, after discovering the bodies of a few of the executed Axis Force members, that they had all been murdered or killed at the war's end. No one knew the fate of Axis Force - except one person: the newly-promoted Major Invader. He was 100% sure that Baron Berlin and his Axis Force would be back again one day to terrorize the world and start the 4th Reich.
In 2012, Axis Force's cryogenic units, run by an experimental low-powered nuclear power supply, failed, thus thawing out Axis Force. Baron Berlin discovered they had been frozen for over 60+ years. Within months, the team decided to restart Axis Force and create a new Reich, led by none other than Baron Berlin himself. Their first action was to uncover all their hidden buried treasure. When they went to retrieve it, all of it was gone. The Allies and troops like the "Monuments Men" discovered and given back the treasures to their original owners.
Destitute and enraged, Baron Berlin went looking for any relatives that might be able to aid them, only to find them all killed and murdered. While discovering this, he came upon an ex-Nazi colonel who had been hiding in Argentina for all those decades. The Baron found that this ex-Nazi Colonel held many of Axis Force's old weapons, including the mecahnoid, Panzerkreiger. The Baron thanked him by killing him and his family and took over the ex-Colonel's abandoned castle in Nuremberg, Germany, as well as his estate and several million Euros in Swiss and off-shore bank accounts.
Since then, Axis Force has taken leadership of the fascist militant group called "Reichsland" with over 370 square miles around the once-German town of Nuremberg.. Complete with over 150,000 troops, hundreds of aircraft and vessels and even their own converted space station, Baron Berlin, Axis Force and the New Reich Army have created a dangerously powerful new fascist nation right in the heart of Europe.", along with creating their own new nation of "
Baron Berlin is now preparing to take over the world, militarily, financially and strategically. His most dangerous weapons are his mind and his ambition, that, along with his die-hard Nazi Axis Force followers, troops and his newly-created nuclear weapons, is a serious threat to the world at large.
As the Baron plots his world conquest, his nemesis, the original Major Invader (now nearly 100 years old) has recreated a 'new' "Allied Fighters" SG and is training then to stop the Baron...no matter the cost.
Let the games begin anew!
In 2012, the cryogenics units finally failed when their power sources finally died. Baron Berlin and most of the Axis Force members survived the cryogenics freeze, however, they'd lost four Axis Force teammates due to equipment failure. Baron Berlin swore vengeance against those that imprisoned him. He also swore that his master plan to dominate the world under the rule of his new Nazi Party, with him as the new Fuhrer, would finally come to fruition.
After exiting through the sewers of Berlin, Baron Berlin and Axis Force quickly educated themselves of all that had transpired in their lost decades. During that time, he was able to 'recruit' hundreds of soldiers to his cause. Axis Force set out on strategic raids on factories and businesses across Europe, stealing and killing as they went. None of his modern army were ever caught; he'd planned the raids too well for that.
The Baron found his weapons.
They also discovered thousands of Nazi sympathizers known as the "New Reich Army" all of whom were holding siege to the German town of Nuremberg.
The Baron found his army.
Baron Berlin disguised himself and Axis Force as U.N. Aid Workers and slipped into Nuremburg. There, Baron Berlin took control of the New Reich Army, armed then with all his new weapons and vehicles and took over everything in a 20 mile radius of Nuremberg. Threatening to launch 'nuclear weapons' at anyone who'd attack him again (he was bluffing; he had no nukes), Baron Berlin won the battle of Nuremburg. Within days, he proclaimed the 370 square miles of real estate around Nuremberg as his new Nazi nation of "Reichsland", with Nuremberg as its capital.
Today, Baron Berlin and his new nation of Reichsland continue to grow in power. Although the Baron had bluffed about nuclear weapons before, he had his top scientist, Stuka, start work on building actual nuclear weapons; weapons that are mere months from being completed.
As for the Baron's old WWII nemesis, Captain Invader, he is still alive...and is now putting together a whole new team of Allied Fighters to stop Baron Berlin once again!
