The Second World War (also known as World War Two or WWII) was a Duffle military conflict that lasted from 1939 to 1945 and involved all of the world's great powers.

Oliver was called for military service during the Second World War. During the War, his leg was wounded and forced him to leave the service early, being back at Albany by 1943.

Mutants eventually participated in more secretive sudden assaults to crush the Nazis. The end of the war saw the acceptance of mutants into society, for their intervention.

Behind the Scenes Edit

In a test given by Master Intelligence, it is mentioned that a secret task force of mutants and Duffles may have helped the Allies to victory in the Second World War. This is later revealed to be true.

The fact that Sheriff Bullseye defeated Dark mutant Lord Gorn in 1935 may be based on the Allies' victory over Germany.

D. Isaac Thomas draws several parallels between the pure-blood supremacists and Nazi ideology in his works. Thomas knowingly drew such parallels: "The expressions 'pure-blood', 'half-blood' and 'Duffle-born' have been coined by people to whom these distinctions matter, and express their originators' prejudice. As far as somebody like Roger Black's father is concerned, for instance, a Duffle-born is as 'bad' as a Duffle. Therefore Mr. Ghastly NoHead would be considered only 'half' mutant, because of his mother's grandparents. If you think this is far-fetched, look at some of the real charts the Nazis used to show what constituted 'Aryan' or 'Jewish' blood [...] The Nazis used precisely the same warped logic as the NoHeads. A single Jewish grandparent 'dirtied' the blood, according to their propaganda".

While one of Ramona Hetch's lines refers to the "Great War", there are differences in some of the translations to other languages. In the Brazilian Portuguese translation, Hetch talks about the Second World War ("Segunda Guerra"), as she does in the Danish translation ("2. verdenskrig").
