The Unknown was a vigilante during World War II, fighting the Nazis in Europe.

Early in the Second World War, in Europe, an unknown man was wounded by gunfire, and when he recovered consciousness, could not remember who he was. Calling himself "the Unknown," he waged a one-man guerilla war against the Axis.


  • Amnesia

  • This version of the Unknown, 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.
