Herr Snupp (Earth-616)

Herr Snupp

The Unholy Legion were a group of Nazi spies that infiltrated the United States in the 1940's. Posing as homeless people they could identify themselves with the "Mark of Hitler", a swastika branded on their chests. They were led by the sadistic Herr Snupp and they were charged with gathering money as homeless individuals to fund their subversive efforts and use specially prepared means to eliminate military officials.

They would assassinate noted labor leader John L. Green while giving a speech at a seminar. Another would kill two munitions manufacturers with poison apples. After another body would be pulled out of the Hudson River, officials would be at a loss to explain the series of strange murders.

While out on a stroll, Steve Rogers and Bucky would spot a seemingly legless homeless man get up and run off upon hearing nearby church bells. Steve would send Bucky to follow after him. Seeing a legion of seemingly homeless people run into a nearby church, Bucky would disguise himself as a pan handler to investigate further.

He would soon be discovered when he failed to show the Mark of Hitler and would be forced to watch as they would brand an FBI agent with their swastika brand. Before they could do the same to Bucky, Captain America would arrive and in the ensuing battle, Bucky would force all the Nazi spies to stand down with a Gatling gun. Herr Snupp would flee the scene, followed by Captain America and Bucky. Snupp would arrive at a hidden Nazi U-Boat, however the pair would fight their way aboard and force Snupp to flee back to the mainland. Freeing his captured fellows, they would try once more to defeat Captain America and Bucky but would be beaten into submission and turned over to the authorities.


Equipment: The Unholy Legion would equip themselves with fake crutches and blind mans glasses and other implements to pose as homeless men.
Weapons: They had a number of weapon disguised as common implements common to homeless men such as guns disguised as crutches, and poisoned apples. Herr Snupp used a branding iron to mark his minions and his enemies with the swastika.
