"I want to know the connection between the elves and the Nazis!"
—Mike McGavin, Elves (1989)
Zombie Nazis fucking with my day now!
Angel: You're a Nazi?
Spike: What? (looks at his SS coat) Oh. No, I just ate one. Sneaky bastards, the SS. Don't ever go to a free-virgin-blood party. Turns out, it's probably a trap.
Angel: You were captured at a "free virgin blood" party?
Spike: I know. Who'd have thought? One minute, I'm asking a fella why all the virgins look like Goebbels. Next minute, I'm stuck in a box on this cursed ship.

Do you know how many vampires Hitler had in his army? This is literally why I started wearing armour!
- Captain America, "Longshot Saves the Marvel Universe"
For God's sake, this Hitler is a base occultist! Where would Science be under his wing? Dead and gone, gentlemen. Our reality would march to the drumbeat of a vulgar dictatorship, empowered by dangerous and forgotten magick, perhaps even Nephandi magick! Even now, Hitler sends his lieutenants to the far corners of the world, seeking out the most vile and evil of magickal traditions, hoping to use them to seize the world from mundane armies. This we cannot allow. Now is our chance! We must show the world that Science can win wars, that it can lift the spirit, that imagination and a little spit and gum are all that are needed to knock this Chaplinesque madman off his pedestal!
