''[[http://thespecialistscomic.com/ The Specialists]]'' is an alternate-history webcomic that [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructs]] the tropes present in many [=WWII=] era propaganda Comics. In this universe the Nazis discovered how to make ''ubermenschen'' using magic -- and are now starting to do so with science as well. WorldWarII is still going on in 1946, though the Japanese surrendered after the use of the atomic bomb.

* EvilCounterpart[=/=]GoodCounterpart: Like any good comic book, many of the Specialists are matched up to a equivalent Ubersmensch.
** Captain Victory and The Aryan, are the most obvious, both being {{CaptainPatriotic}}s and {{SuperSoldier}}s.
** The Golem and Panzer, towering, bulletproof metal men armed with {{BFG}}s.
** Jack-Be-Nimble and Max Schnell, cocky speedsters.
** Lady Liberty and Die Hexe, the standard "Woman with quasi-magical abilities". Lady Liberty has PsychicPowers while Die Hexe is a straight up witch.



** SuperStrength: Captain Victory, The Aryan, Panzer and Hartmann.
