Chop-Chop was a Chinese flying ace who was member of a squadron of pilots of various nationalities, fighting against the Nazis during World War II.[1]

Originally from Earth-Two, Chop Chop and his teammates in the Blackhawk Squadron crossed over to Earth-X in 1942 to help the Freedom Fighters liberate America from Nazi control.[2]

They were all later reportedly killed in action.[3]


  • This version of Chop-Chop, 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.
  • An earlier version of Chop-Chop, with a beribboned top-knot and gigantic teeth, first appeared in Military Comics #3 published by Quality Comics, and was created by Will Eisner and Chuck Cuidera.
    • The Earth-X version, which was later retconned to be a native of Earth-Two, first appeared in Justice League of America #107, by Len Wein and Dick Dillin. This version was much less spherical and cartoonish; he now was an athletic young man, with a normal haircut, but still wearing the quaint Asian outfit.
    • Chop-Chop's status as a denizen of Earth-X and the subsequent revelation that he was originally a native of Earth-Two, were both retcons, written after DC Comics acquired the character. Originally, as published by Quality Comics, his adventures had continued post World War II, which was contradicted by the very different timeline of Earth-X. Therefore, the character seen in comics published by Quality Comics is a separate individual, from another universe.
  • The death of Chop Chop and his team, and of Plastic Man, is reported to the JLA by Uncle Sam, in Justice League of America #107. He doesn't name them, but the art shows all seven of them.
