At the end of World War II (WWII), Nazi Germany was defeated. The victors split Germany up into 4 major regions, each controlled by the US, French, British and Soviet nations. Eventually, the regions were conjoined, with US, British and French regions becoming West Germany and Soviet Russia's region becoming East Germany. That is when the Berlin Wall came up, separating the Soviet portion of Berlin from the West. For 40+ years the wall remained. West Germany began to prosper, while East Germany, now a Soviet block nation, became a communist state. East Germans were scrutinized daily by the Soviet's equivocal Politburo in East Germany known as "STASI". STASI were controlling, KGB-types that basically kept the citizenry in fear and everyone in check.
In 1989 to 1990, as the Berlin Wall fell and the Soviet Union crumbled, so did what was once East Germany. Reunification quickly became a goal, wherein West and East Germany would rejoin to form a new Germany. Throughout the Reunification, nearly all of both Germany's looked forward to this great event in making their nation whole once more. Some, however, did not like the idea at all. Those same few were also angry over the collapse of the Soviet Union. They wanted their power back. They wanted to not only take over all of Germany for Marxist rule, but to subjugate the rest of Europe in the process. They believed democracy and capitalism to be an evil that had to be purged from Europe. Those few became "The Condor Legion".
The Condor Legion is a band of Marxist anarchists bent on destroying the free market, capitalism and democracy. As such, the Condor Legion has used their powers and connections to fight against most if not all of Europe in the process.
In one of their first attacks, they broke into the German Chancellery and held the government hostage, demanding a new 60 mile industrial "zone" be given to them, calling it "North Germany". The Legion stated that anyone willing to go back to "the way things were" just simply had to show up there in the next 12 hours and claim their new nation; a nation that would be led and ruled by Condor Legion's leader, Condor Commander. No one showed up. A band of heroes through from a super-group called "The Commonwealth" did show and stopped the abduction, freeing the German government and defeating Condor Legion.
Recently, Condor Legion has broken out of jail, and as such, has once again asserted themselves as East Germans wanting their land and way of life back. They are willing to fight for it. They are willing to destroy the West to get it.
The legion is up to two hundred or so troops, secretly based in the mountainous region of Oybin, Germany, based under a medieval underground Sandstone mountain-embedded castle/monastery. To keep the locals as bay, the legion has promoted dozens of 'violent spectral' haunting stories and occurrences, allowing the legion to operate in secrecy.
Prepare yourselves for Condor Legion, for soon, they will try to take over Germany and Europe once again...this time, with greater vengeance!
Condor Commander is the embodiment of East Germany anger and hate over the reunification of East and West Germany.
As the son of an East German Air Force General, he was witness to his father's suicide when his father was told to turn himself in for his "STASI" involvements. The son ran away, and joined an underground resistance to the westernization of their beloved East Germany.
After years of plotting, stealing and building up, he created the "Condor Legion" - a small army of terrorists, rebels and ex-East German military men and women that want Germany back as a German Empire.
To that end, the "Condor Commander" took on an active role in attacks against Germany and Europe, only for him and his troops to be expatriated and kicked out of Europe forever.
As leader of Condor Legion, Condor Commander has been a dangerous villain to deal with. He is not beyond nuking Western Germany just simply to 'get even' for their country's sublimation to reunification.
Condor Commander uses two excellent energy blades as his primary weapons; these blades can pierce amazing-level armor. He also carries two energy-based handguns. His suit contains a force field generator and can fire excellent force blasts from his gauntlets. His gauntlets also have a remote control system and comms system allowing him to call upon hundreds of mechanical battlebots. His helmet includes a multi-spectrum vision system, data links to a variety of internet and communications links. His suit provides excellent physical, radiation and energy protection, while his helmet also provides remarkable psionic protection. At times, Condor Commander has utilized a flight pack and/or rocket pack to fly with.
