The Unknown Soldier is a DCComics war hero created by Creator/RobertKanigher and Joe Kubert and borrows the name from the various [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tomb_of_the_Unknown_Soldier Tombs of the Unknown Soldier]] in the world. Originally a WorldWarII hero, the character debuted in ''Our Army at War'' #168 (June, 1966), featuring Comicbook/SgtRock. Figuring the character to be interesting enough, DC featured him in ''Star Spangled War Stories'' starting from issue #151 (June-July, 1970). Once the character had begun featuring exclusively in the comic, it was later renamed to ''Unknown Soldier'' and continued for 64 more issues, ending in October, 1982. The character has also made appearances in more modern DCUniverse titles.

In 2012, ''G.I. Combat'' vol 3 introduced the Comicbook/{{New 52}} version of the Unknown Soldier in a back up strip written by Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray with art by Dan Panosian. This version is initially introduced as an anonymous US soldier in present-day Afghanistan, before revealing that there are Unknown Soldiers dating back to Ancient Rome. Following the cancellation of ''G.I. Combat'', the Soldier joined the Comicbook/SuicideSquad.

Since then, there have been a few more limited series and minis, including one in 1988 by Jim Owsley, aka Creator/ChristopherPriestComics, and Phil Gascoine, which was popular with fans, though the characterization differed and may not actually be about the same character who fought in WWII. In 1997, a mini written by Creator/GarthEnnis and illustrated by Kilian Plunkett was released and portrayed a DarkerAndEdgier version of the character. It was released by VertigoComics and focused on a CIA agent trying to uncover the details about the Unknown Soldier.
