"You know, I had a daughter who looked just like you, with similar compulsions... and I expunged that filth from my family line forever!"
—Sturmbannführer to Sara Lance[src]

An unnamed man is a Sturmbannführer in the Schutzstaffel forces of the New Reich on Earth-X.


The man climbed the ranks of the Nazi Party's military wing, Schutzstaffel, eventually becoming the Sturmbannführer of the New Reich. He was in charge of the execution of the Earth One denizens. After he appeared in front of the captured heroes, he approached Sara Lance with a glare, initially surprised that a woman of "Nordic perfection" like herself would associate with the Reich's enemies. Upon discovering that she was bisexual, he recounted when he'd killed his daughter after discovering she was attracted to the same sex. He then ordered the guards to proceed with the execution. The heroes initially tried to run away, but he shocked them with their power-dampening collars. The Sturmbannführer then led them to a trench and placed a bag over Oliver Queen's head due to his resemblance to the Führer. Before the execution could commence though, the heroes were rescued by Leo Snart and Ray Terrill.

Later at the hanger, Earth One Oliver, posing as the Führer, arrived. Growing weary, the Sturmbannführer brought out Felicity Smoak's doppelgänger and offers her as a gift for Oliver to kill. Oliver refused and instead turned the gun on Sturmbannführer, to which he reveals the gun was never loaded. After a struggle with Oliver, the Sturmbannführer escaped and made his way to the main hangar, which held the gateway, and ordered the men to make sure no one came through. However, Oliver and his friends attacked and took the hanger, allowing them to return to Earth One.[1]

The Sturmbannführer's fate is unknown but if still alive, it can be assumed he was arrested by the Freedom Fighters since Leo Snart revealed that the rebels had overthrown the Nazi regime after the battle between Earth-X and Earth One.[2]


The Sturmbannführer is a deep believer in Nazi ideology, killing his own daughter for her "filthy compulsions", a stark contrast from his Earth One counterpart who loves his children dearly and would never do anything to hurt them. He admired Sara Lance's "Nordic perfection", and commented on his daughter having similar looks, but did not hesitate to order her execution. He also has an inquisitive mind, similar to his counterpart, allowing him to expose Oliver Queen as an imposter. He also indirectly stated that he hates Führer Oliver for unknown reasons as he indirectly said that to Oliver that he knows he is not the Führer, he however never showed open hatred in front of him. This makes him similar to his Earth One counterpart who initially hated Oliver.

Like his fellow Nazis, he is sadistic and cruel in his dealings with others, also openly scoffing in the face of Felicity Smoak's doppelgänger's concern for starving children and taking pleasure in trying to kill enemies of the Reich.


  • Skilled tactician/Leader: As a Sturmbannführer, the man was a capable tactician. He lead a small army of troops to kill the Earth One breachers, though this dailed.[1]
  • Firearms: He has some knowledge in using guns.
