- Hand-to-Hand Combat (Basic)
- Multilingualism Andre understood spoken Russian, as well as his native French, English, and several other languages.
- Singing On their return flights from their many international adventures, it was commonplace for the seven aviators of the Blackhawk Squadron to join their voices in a hearty chorus of their Blackhawk Anthem, often improvising new verses.
- In the Blackhawk Squadron, Andre's aircraft, during World War II, was a Grumman XF5F Skyrocket ground-attack fighter plane. After the war, he flew several early fighter jet warplanes, most notably North American F-86 Sabres, then Lockheed/Blackhawk F-90B and F-90C long-range interceptors.
- This version of Andre, 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. Even though versions of the character may have since appeared, this information does not apply to those versions.
- In a desperate shoot-out in late 1941, in Jugoslavia, Andre was shot at close range, and rolled down the side of a mountain, deliberately starting an avalanche in the process. The avalanche annihilated a large number of German soldiers. Andre's body was not recovered.
- Six months later, on Andre's birthday, the Blackhawks revisited the site of Andre's apparent death, and amid another battle with the German occupying forces, found Andre, who had survived the avalanche but was battered beyond recognition. Blackhawk personally invaded Germany, solo, and broke into a concentration camp, from which he extracted the world's most famous plastic surgeon, Dr. Fritz von Rath, to restore Andre's face.
- The doctor was insane, however, and sculpted Andre's features into those of a mutually-hated, and exceedingly ugly, Nazi enemy of theirs, Baron von Ziefh. The Blackhawks flew to Libya, and attacked von Ziefh and his forces, and defeated them, rescued Dr. von Rath's daughter Barbara from her Nazi captors, and returned to Blackhawk Island, for a second session of plastic surgery. Two weeks later, Andre looked just like his old self, and was engaged to marry Barbara von Rath.
