American Rampage

"American Rampage" from Freedom Fighters vol.1 #2 (DC, 1976) by Gerry Conway, Pablo Marcos and Tex Blasdell
There are two reasons why I like the Freedom Fighters as much as I do. One, they're Golden Age characters and I have a soft spot for all those guys. Second, they appeared in an issue of DC Comics Presents opposite Superman at my most impressionable age, comics-wise. I love a LOT of the characters I discovered through those team-ups - my interest in Ambush Bug, the Legion of Substitute-Heroes, OMAC, the Demon, and many others can trace their origins to that series. And the Freedom Fighters have a cool hook: They're the All-Star Squadron of Earth-X, where WWII never ended and the Nazis have invaded America. Unfortunately, their 70s comic wasn't very good...
