Until very early 1942, Hans Kronitz was the Third Reich's Chief Chemist, and he developed a formula for turning sane men into homicidal psychopaths.

The formula was tested on a village in an occupied country, and it worked perfectly; the test subjects enthusiastically murdered their own families and neighbors.

Hans Kronitz did not live long, after this invention, but was hunted down and shot dead by a mysterious Sniper, thought to be the same man who, in 1941 and 1942, performed over a dozen assassinations, amid the chaos of World War II's European Theater.


  • This version of Hans Kronitz, 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.
