Nazi scientist Siegmund Krieger created "miracle food", an fed it to his son, Albrecht Kreiger, from early childhood, so that he would develop into the "perfect specimen". He grew up to be a veritable "Aryan superman," and adopting the name Captain Nazi, Krieger served the Third Reich as a super-powered agent of destruction.
Captain Nazi was in opposition to both Captain Marvel and Bulletman. During the second half of his first battle with Marvel, Nazi attacked two innocent bystanders who happened to be fishing near the scene of the battle. One of them, elderly Jacob Freeman, was killed, but the old man's teenage grandson, Freddy Freeman, was saved by Captain Marvel and became Captain Marvel, Jr.
Junior, who remained crippled in his Freddy Freeman form by the supervillain's cowardly attack, continued to hold a vendetta against Captain Nazi, and the two frequently battled one another. Nazi also served as a member of Mister Mind's Monster Society of Evil during the WWII years and afterward.

- This version of Captain Nazi, including all history and corresponding appearances, was erased from existence following the collapse of the original Multiverse in the 1985–86 Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series.

- In 1942, Captain Nazi was created by writer William Woolfolk and artist Mac Raboy for Fawcett Publications.
- In 1953, National Periodical Publications settled a long-running lawsuit against Fawcett, claiming that the character of Captain Marvel bore too much of a resemblance to their own character, Superman. After settling the case (by agreeing to no longer publish Captain Marvel), Fawcett discontinued publication of their entire comic book line and Captain Nazi lapsed into obscurity.
- In 1972, DC Comics licensed many of the Fawcett characters, including Captain Nazi, and established that they existed on the fictional parallel world known as Earth-S.
