The Freedom Fighters are a team of American super-heroes led by Uncle Sam. Originally they were the last heroes of Earth-X, where the Nazis had won World War II and taken over. They fought against tyranny and oppression in a completely authoritarian world. Founding members also included Black Condor, Doll Man, Human Bomb, Phantom Lady and the Ray, later joined by Firebrand.
There was a new version of the Freedom Fighters developed as part of the mainstream DC Universe after the Crisis on Infinite Earths collapsed the Multiverse. This incarnation was related to the All-Star Squadron in their early career, and they continue fighting against evil into the modern era.
The Freedom Fighters were originally made up entirely of characters DC had acquired legally from Quality Comics in a takeover, although they have expanded since then. The concept was created by Len Wein and Dick Dillin, first appearing in Justice League of America #107. (1973)
