Jesse Owens was an African-American track and field athlete and four-time gold medalist in the 1936 Olympic Games held in Berlin.

Owens' reputation humiliated the Nazis and their ideals of white Aryan superiority in which they declared him as a "public enemy" when the Nazis conquered America. Owens became a resistance fighter and later leader of the Freedom Fighters. In 1963, Owens and the Freedom Fighters were captured by the Nazis when their hideout was raided by the PlaSStic Men.
