4-issue limited series (1993)
After successfully transferring his brain into the body of Mister America in 1945, the Ultra-Humanite rises in political power and develops a way to create a "superman." He transplants the brain of Adolf Hitler into Dan Dunbar, creating a new American hero, Dynaman. "Tex Thompson" is betrayed by his wife, Miss America, who finds his journals and gives them to her old All-Star friends. The story references January 1950, when Alan Scott is summoned to the HUAC hearings.
Although this was an "Elseworlds" series, it's themes were powerful enough to make it into mainstream comics as well. The most prominent of these is James Robinson's continued development of Starman, which began here in The Golden Age. Other things introduced include the potential evil in Captain Triumph (1st post-Crisis appearance) and the fall of the Tigress. It features first-time DC appearances by some Quality heroes—Joe Hercules, "Stormy" Foster, Wildfire, Madame Fatal, Doll Girl; plus Red Torpedo, Neon, the Spider, Firebrand and the Red Bee; and and other obscure "All-Stars" such as Captain X.
