Orphaned at a young age during World War I, Harriet Hess and her brother Hans grew up on the streets of Berlin. Always looking out for each other they became the only family they ever known. With Hitler's rise to power, Harriet saw an opportunity to become a part of something and to lash out at those that caused her and her brother hardship. She proved to be a vicious follower of Der Fuehrer's draconian laws. When an opportunity arose to become part of a secret Nazi project to create Uberman based on the research of a Prof. Dickersham Harriet jumped at the chance. One of the few successful experiments in Nazi Germany to date, Harriet was given the powers of super-speed. She took her name, Blitzkrieg, from Germany's strategy of lightening war-fare.

Connections: Sister Harriet Hess

Personal - Protects sister at all costs
Weakness - Slow witted

Orphaned at a young age during World War I, Hans Hess and his sister Harriet grew up on the streets of Berlin. Always looking out for each other they became the only family they ever known. When his sister became an agent with the Nazi SS, Hans became her personal muscle. After Harriet became Blitzkreig, the Nazi scientists had a different plan for Hans, he was to become a living war-machine. Thus the armored Panzerfaust was born.

Always working together, Blitzkreig and Panzerfaust were sent to America under the direction of the mysterious Baron Zero to demoralize the Americans and to seek the secrets of other Meta-humans.


  1. Where do you get this artwork from? I would love to use it in my gaming sessions!

  2. Brother and sister Nazi supervillians. What's not to hate? ;)

  3. LPJ - It's a hero generator found here:

    The site is in Portuguese so it might take a bit to figure it out. If you know spanish, that helps.

    Just click on the animation icon in the upper right.

  4. Hey Mike, hope you can make it to one of the session soon!

  5. They didnt stand a chance against our trio of pseudo heroes! I hope the reporter got a good picture of The Sponge knocking Panzerfaust out with a well aimed shot to mouth. Still not sure how that worked but it was fun! Surely we will be meeting up with Baron Zero in the near future!

  6. Great. I always loved Mutants & Masterminds but ICONS looks like a darn good...hey, wait. Let's be clear, not everyone with the name Hess is a Nazi mutant villain.
