Klaus Metzger was one of many soldiers recruited in Nazi Germany for a project to create a "superman" to oppose the rising number of superhumans battling for the Allies.  While many of these projects ended in failure, Metzger's process turned out to be an enormous success.  Metzger's brain was implanted into a powerful robot body containing an electrical dynamo of secret origin.  Suspecting the possibility that his transformation into an inhuman cyborg would unhinge Metzger, the scientists informed him that he had been transformed into a superhuman being that no longer needed to eat or breathe and possessed great power.  Government officials in Nazi German planned on covertly inserting Metzger, now called Blitzkrieg because of his tremendous strength and electrical power, into America via a small stealth submarine.  One there he would assault the US Capitol and attempt to kill President Roosevelt.  Metzger was placed into suspended animation and the submarine launched by remote control towards America.  Thankfully the submarine malfunctioned and Metzger was never awoken after the submarine beached itself off the coast of Virginia.

Decades later, a well-known actor was cruising in his yacht off the coast of Virginia when he encountered the beached submarine.  Salvage teams and naval archaeologists were called in to recover the craft.  When the opened the submarine, internal devices reactivated Metzger who initially believed that it was still the 1940's.  After some time of disorientation and confusion, as well as a battle with local superhero, Blitzkrieg retreated to reconsider his situation.  Now Metzger, still believing himself to be a metahuman and not a robot, plans to relaunch a Fourth Reich and take over the world.
