Superstar writer Grant Morrison joins legendary artist Jim Lee on Earth-10 for one of the most dynamic, action-packed issues of this entire world-shattering series – THE MULTIVERSITY: MASTERMEN!
Imagine a world where the Nazis not only won World War II but went on to direct world culture for the next 60 years with the help of an orphaned, alien super-weapon known as Overman! But hope is not lost! Rising from the ashes of oppression are a diverse band of heroes raging against the fascist regime – a band of heroes known as THE FREEDOM FIGHTERS!
What nightmarish parallel worlds haunt the dreams of Overman? Who is the mysterious figure called Uncle Sam? And when the dust settles, will the actions of Phantom Lady, Black Condor, Human Bomb, Doll Man and The Ray be enough to stop Leatherwing, Blitzen and the other “heroes” of Earth-X?
Learn all this and more in this exciting issue that acts as chapter seven of the critically acclaimed MULTIVERSITY storyline.

Hey it was a fun issue just not a great issue. Imagine if Superman’s rocket fell in Nazi Germany? What would have happened to the Man of Steel? What would have happened to the world? We’ll I’ll give you a little hint… America still doesn’t quite fighting for freedom.
I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again, Jim Lee’s art is superb. I liked to see how even if Superman (in this comic called Overman) wasn’t on the side of the angels, he still has a strong sense of right and wrong. He hated the times of “purging” in Hitler’s empire (but still didn’t stand up, come on Overman) and now rules the empire. We see creepy Nazi versions of the Justice League and a force of Freedom Fighters rise up, lead by Uncle Sam himself. Loved the fact that patriots would still be fighting and protecting people even if the world did go to hell. Like to see media loving on the American spirit.
Honestly, not enough action in this comic for me and the first two pages are Hitler on a toilet. It was meant to be funny (I did like that he was reading a comic where Superman punches him but that was about it) but it went on too long.
Thought the cover was funny, a kind of corny throwback to how comic covers were done in the past.
