The '''Freedom Fighters''' are a team of American super-heroes in TheDCU, made up of characters bought out from Quality Comics and led by the nation's spirit [[CaptainPatriotic Uncle Sam]]. Originally they were written as the only heroes on Earth-X, a universe where the Nazis won an extended UsefulNotes/WorldWarII and had completely taken over. They fought against tyranny and oppression in a completely authoritarian world. Eventually they were integrated into the main SharedUniverse. They still operate together in the modern era mostly using {{Legacy Character}}s and fight against contemporary problems that face the country such as corruption and terrorism.

Not to be confused with either the [[VideoGame/FreedomFighters video game]] or the ''other'' [[ComicBook/ArchieComicsSonicTheHedgehog team of comic-book freedom fighters]] (they started in [[WesternAnimation/SonicSatAm animation first]], then became a comic book).

The team first appeared in a crossover, featured in ''Justice League of America'' #107-108 (September-November, 1973). This tale was written by Len Wein, and drawn by Dick Dillin. The team featured familiar characters, Black Condor, Doll Man, Human Bomb, PhantomLady, the Ray, and Uncle Sam. All were characters from UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks. They lay dormant for a few years. Then they got their own series ''"Freedom Fighters''", which had them relocating from Earth-X to Earth-One. Their title lasted for 15 issues, from March, 1976 to July, 1978. This series upgraded the powers of some of the featured and added fellow Golden Ager Firebrand to their ranks. The series then fell victim to the so-called DC Implosion, the cancellation of much of DC's line of comic books. Two wore issues were by then complete. They got printed in ''"Cancelled Comics Cavalcade''" #2 (Fall, 1978).

In the [[TheEighties 1980s]], the Freedom Fighters got a couple of retro tales in the pages of ComicBook/AllStarSquadron, a couple of modern tales, and participation in the CrisisOnInfiniteEarths. Individual members got revamped in TheNineties, and some were replaced by [[LegacyCharacter Legacy Characters]]. Then most active members died in the InfiniteCrisis #1 (December, 2005). To be replaced by even younger Legacy Characters, and new recruits. The newer version/s of the team received a couple of mini-series over the following years. But so far haven't been more successful than their predecessors in maintaining an ongoing series.

* AppearanceIsInTheEyeOfTheBeholder: Or voice, in Uncle Sam's case. To Emma Glenn, his voice sounds like "children singing". To Doll Man II, he sounds like a leader of great compassion and integrity (and a little like [[DwightDEisenhower Ike Eisenhower]]). Doll Man II hypothesizes that this is because Sam is born of all the individual perceptions of America, and may sound differently to everyone.

In the Comicbook/{{New 52}}, Justin Gray and Jimmy Palimotti (who wrote the previous reinvention, based on notes by Creator/GrantMorrison) seemed to be re-reinventing the Freedom Fighters a step at a time, with linked miniseries introducing even newer versions of the characters (''The Ray''; ''Phantom Lady and Doll Man''; and ''The Human Bomb''). The third of these ended at the start of 2013, and there's been no further development, so it's probably an AbortedArc.
