Hitler continued to rave ("I AM HITLER! Give me some wallpaper to hang and I will prove it!").
As Combat Kelly and Cookie drove off, Cookie looked at the bright side -- they destroyed all the weapon sites, and even if they didn't bring Hitler in, they drove him batty; Combat Kelly remarked "I hope we drove him batty enough to have him blow his own brains out someday..."
(Captain America Comics#39/5) - Hitler commiserated with Nazi scientist Carl Von Brummel over the latter's failure to develop a "Big Bertha Rocket-Gun" in order to bomb New York directly from Germany; "Der shells only drop in der Atlantic Ocean!" moaned Von Brummel. However, Von Brummel then began contemplating "Master Plan#2," and Hitler eagerly advised him to pursue it. A month later, a specially designed German submarine bombed an American coastal city with rocket shells while submerged; unable to detect the source of the shells, Americans were led to believe that Germany had indeed developed the long-range gun that Von Brummel had planned. Fortunately, Captain America and Bucky were able to locate and destroy the submarine, revealing the truth.
(Captain America Comics#40/3) - An assistant lighthouse keeper, calling himself "the Keeper of the Flash," offered to sell the highest-bidding nation a meteor fragment which, when exposed to the sun's rays, emitted an energy beam capable of destroying stone and metal within seconds. In Berlin, Hitler, Herman Goering, and Josef Goebbels contemplated the power of such a weapon; "Ve buy it---und ven ve haff it, ve take back der money---Ya!" declared Hitler. When Goebbels reported that Japan insisted on having separate representation at the auction, Hitler decided to send an additional representative, not known to be a German operative, in order to undercut the Japanese and guarantee the fragment's power solely for Germany. Hitler then ordered agents to be sent to assassinate Captain America, lest he interfere with the proceedings. Captain America and Bucky evaded the efforts but were subsequently captured, and the two heroes were in the custody of German agents when representatives from both Axis and Allied nations converged at the auction site. Violence erupted, and the heroes broke free; a German agent stabbed the Keeper of the Flash, and Cap took custody of the meteor fragment, sending the Axis representatives fleeing in panic. Under an American general's orders, Cap used the fragment to destroy the larger meteor from which it was broken, and Bucky hurled the fragment into the sea so that its power could not be misused.
(Marvel Mystery Comics#58/1) - While the Americans attacked Berlin Hitler ordered to steal Peter Riker's formula for a new explosive and destroy the plant producing it.
(Kid Komics I#5/1) - Hitler met with Goering and Himmler and ordered to initiatie Master Plan 487B to stop the allies, sending tanks to the Western Front and blowing up a dam. It was prevented by the Destroyer. Hitler, Goering and Himmler had no further Master Plans.
(Vengeance#1 (fb) ) - Hitler sent Red Skull to eliminate Russian scientists involved in their secret eugenics program. (seen in further Vengeance issues Red Skull used Russian files to continue the experiments, presumably leading directly to the flashback in Spider-Woman I#42.)
(Spider-Woman I#42 (fb) - BTS) - In the winter of 1944 Hitler ordered to take an all black American Air Force Fighter Squadron, which was taken prisoner by the Nazis, to the Red Skull for his experiments in biochemical welfare. The only success of these experiments was Judas Man.
(Super-Villain Team-Up#17 (fb)) - In early 1945, Hitler was approached by Arnim Zola, a bio-engineer with theories regarding the transferal of a mind into a new body. Hitler was intrigued, and had himself submitted to machines which would allow his mind to be transferred into a new body upon his death.
(Fury#1 (fb)) - Hitler visited Arnim Zola and the Red Skull. Zola gave the Red Skull a potion to take that will place him in suspended animation, while Zola pointed to a cloned body he had prepared for Hitler to transfer his mind into.
(War Comics#30) - Early March, 1945 After Berlin underwent frequent bombing by the Allies, an enraged Hitler declared that all Allied airmen held prisoner would face execution. One of his general objected, but (predictably), Hitler did not relent.
(Captain America Comics#49/1) - Hitler became desperate to ensure a soft peace for Germany in order to gain time to build up for the next war so he recruited German troops who looked like dead Americans and deliberately had them maimed and left near American lines. The men were sent home to become a Fifth Column preaching race hatred, down with democracy, and a soft peace. After Cap defeated the cripples, he gave a speech against such evils.
(Captain America Annual#13 (fb)) - That April, Hitler sensed that the end was near. Having already set up his "Sleeper" robot program, he turned over to the Red Skull a strongbox to be concealed, claiming it was his "final secret." Decades later, the Red Skull finally opened the strongbox, only to find a manuscript of "Mein Kampf," watercolor miniatures, architectural drawings, his Iron Cross from World War I, and anti-Semitic traits that had influenced him-- what he wanted the world to remember him for.
(Spider-Man: Fear Itself Graphic Novel) - On April 30th, 1945, Hitler met with Heinrich Zemo, informing him that he planned to commit suicide that night. As a reward for his faithful service, Hitler told him, "like your Führer, Zemo, you will become...a God..." (See Comments)
(Young Men#24 (fb)/Saga of the Original Human Torch#3) - That same evening, Hitler was cornered in his bunker by the Human Torch and Toro, shortly after Eva Braun had committed suicide. Before Hitler could follow her, he was set aflame by the torches to prevent him from setting off a bomb; he told a loyal follower of his nearby to tell the world he had committed suicide, then died.
(Strange Tales I#10/4) - Inside the bunker Hitler shot himself in the head with his luger in front of Hans Klauber and other witnesses. (see comments)
(Battle#16 - BTS) - A lower ranking Axis officer decided to shoot Hitler himself and shot him in the face. (see comments)

(Uncanny Tales#17/4 (fb) - BTS) - Hitler became "lieutenant-in-charge-of-torture-operations" in Hell. (Mephisto's Hell; see comments)
(Adventures into Weird Worlds#21/2) <August 1953> - In "Hell," Hitler bargained with a contemptuous devil to be allowed to escape his punishment and was given the chance to find someone who would vouch for his worthiness. Deciding not to try his luck among the living, Hitler instead traveled through "Hell" in search of a character reference; thinking that past would-be world conquerors might help him, he approached Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, and Napoleon, but all were disgusted by his career and refused. Hitler finally decided to seek the support of "Joe," an ally of his who had died a few months ago, only to learn that Joe was now none other than the taunting devil who offered him the doomed deal in the first place.
(Uncanny Tales#17/4) <February 1954> - Soviet leader Stalin replaced Adolf Hitler as "lieutenant-in-charge-of-torture-operations" in Hell.
(Super-Villain Team-Up#17 (fb)) - Hitler's consciousness arrived in the waiting brain Zola had prepared for him, and was finally given a new body. Hitler then took up the identity of the Hate-Monger.
(Thor I#205) - In Mephisto's Hell Hitler, one of the many damned souls in Mephisto's realm, was eager to prove himself to Mephisto and led an army of undead soldiers against Thor in Mephisto's name. Thor defeated them only to be attacked by other damned souls.

(Wolverine/Punisher II#4 - BTS) - A man named Gottlieb claimed to be Hitler's son. He stated that Hitler was the founder of Erewhon, a safehaven for criminals, starting it after World War II.
(Wolverine/Punisher II#5 - BTS) - Gottlieb pointed to a mummified body that he claimed was Hitler's. He asked Wolverine and the Punisher to help protect Hitler's body, but enraged townspeople broke in and one threw a firebomb at it. Gottlieb ran to the body instictively, only to catch fire himself.

The fate of Hitler's soul
Sidebar: Although Hitler's status as dead soul [in Hell] might seem to conflict with his status as surviving consciousness within Hate-Monger clone-bodies, does the fact that Hitler's neurological consciousness survived his death via Zola's methods necessarily mean that his metaphysical soul couldn't have gone to the afterlife?--Ronald Byrd
Or his consciousness/soul could have just taken a trip to Hell before returning to the mortal plane as the Hate-Monger. Another Nazi, Heinrich Himmler, was also consigned to Hell after his death (See Zyklon). Also, it has been theorized that Satan's agent "Joe" from the Adventures into Weird Worlds#21 may have been Josef Stalin. Of course, Joe could have been somebody else completely such as Joe--Kyle
A soul fragment of Hitler was seen in Mephisto's Dead Zone, which means to me that a portion of his soul might have been split off or replicated during his near-death experience. This type of deal might go a long way towards explaining all of the characters who show up in the realm of the dead, but are later revealed to have never died at all--Snood.
Perhaps that's actually Hans Klauber (Strange Tales I#10) who appears in those "Hitler in Hell" stories.
With Hitler's successfull suicide in Klauber's story I doubt that the story is actually Earth-616 continuity or....
Perhaps this "suicide" was staged shortly after Hitler's immolation by the Torch, using a duplicate body created by geneticist Arnim Zola, so that the egotistical Führer could have the "death" he wanted.
John McDonagh argues that Hitler wouldn't go to Hell since "salvation (in Pauline theology) is based on faith, not upon the humanity of one's actions," but I don't think that sort of argument holds any water in the Marvel Universe--Snood.
In a flashback from Captain America I#211, Zola claims to have preserved Hitler's brain and transferred it into the body of "Nazi X", which ignores the entire Hate-Monger storyline. Super-Villain Team-Up#17 does its best to reconcile them, by having "Nazi X" as just one of Hitler's many clonal bodies.
Fred Van Lente's Taskmaster (2010-2011) series hit on the topic of cloned Hitler brains. Horst Gorscht, the developer of the Nazis' corrupted Super-Soldier serum resulting in the likes of Master Man and Warrior Woman, stockpiled cloned Hitler brains in Wewelsburg II, a castle in the Bolivian Andes. Using the brains Gorscht created a serum that could unlock the mind's potential by absorbing knowledge instantaneously, which turned a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent into the Taskmaster.
The scene from Spider-Man: Fear Itself served as the prologue to the story of the Baroness, who was originally portrayed as Heinrich Zemo reincarnated in a female body, presumably via the work of Zola, similar to how Hitler became the Hate-Monger. Later stories made it appear that the Baroness only posed as Zemo, calling into question that flashback. Anyway, you can find out more about the Baroness if'n yez wants.
There are at least two Hitler stories in what would otherwise seem to be non-continuity tales. These take place outside the Marvel Multiverse, but within the Megaverse (See Omniverse for an explanation). However, in neither of these stories does anything occur which contradict anything from Earth-616, and so we are listing them here as possible continuity:
Per Degaton notes: The idea that the Third Reich somehow represented a return to Odinist thought occasionally crops up-such as in the book The Other Victims: Non-Jewish Victims of the Holocaust by Ina R. Freidman, and probably inspired Roy Thomas' use of Thor in Invaders-but such an idea does not withstand historical scrutiny. I'll observe here that Hitler's admiration for the Norse legends and Richard Wagner's Nibelungen is well-documented, and should simply not be mistaken for his own religious beliefs...and I don't see that Marvel have made any such claims.
Big thanks to Scott Martin for his assistance on Captain America Comics#2, and to the Spirit of '76 for Human Torch Comics#5!
Another friend, Crusher Hogan had this to add: "There's also a wild Bill Everett Hitler story in Journey into Unknown Worlds#37 (December, 1950) entitled "The First Rocket," wherein spacemen landing on the moon in 1963 discover that it has been colonized already -- by Hitler and some Nazis who had fled earth after WWII! A war ensues between the moon and earth, during which Hitler "finally dies for sure!" Ah, those wacky Atlas days...
From Ronald Byrd: In Daring Mystery Comics#8/6, during 1942, Hitler met with Herman Goering, Josef Goebbels, and a Nazi scientist named Von Schalz who had perfected "a special chemical ice which induced deep slumber, causing all living processes to be suspended. Hitler, perturbed at the war's present development, concluded that "Germany is doomed" and decided that the four of them should enter a state of suspended animation for 1109 years, with the plan to use the captured wealth of "all the conquered nations" to conquer the world after their revival. "A hidden cave, deep in the Black Forests of Germany," was selected as the site of their rest; the four hid their wealth in the cave and plunged into a pool of Schalz's chemical, freezing themselves for over a millennium.
In the year 3049, the hidden cave's entrance was discovered and opened by unknown parties, and the four Nazis emerged from their 1109 years of sleep. Hitler and his aides then set about bribing soldiers to serve them and making their plans to conquer Earth and, eventually, the rest of the universe. In 3050, three months after their awakening, Hitler, Goebbels, and Von Schalz used a rocket ship to bomb the Congressional Building in Washington, DC, where a permanent peace between "war-wearied nations" had just been finalized. The heroic Captain Daring, leader of the forces of democracy, ordered his fleet to bring down the attacker; the rocket ship was shot out of the sky by Daring's fleet, and the three Nazis parachuted to safety. Daring landed near them and confronted them, surprised at the appearance of "the mad dictator of 1941." Stalling for time, Hitler explained to Daring how he and his men had survived into the thirty-first century. Just as Daring wondered aloud where Goering was, Goering, having led a troop of bribed soldiers into the area, struck him from behind. Von Schalz then placed Captain Daring under a hypnotic spell so that his knowledge of thirty-first century military strategy could be of use to the Nazis. "The time is right for the greatest blitzkrieg of all eternity!" declared Hitler. "The forces of democracy have gone soft with peace! Captain Daring will lead our armies to victory! Heil Hitler!" Millions more soldiers flocked to Hitler's banner for "promises of wealth, power and glory"; Goebbels used the Telecast News United communication system to start a propaganda campaign, while the mesmerized Captain Daring took command of Hitler's armies and directed "the first army of occupation [to] establish a camp in the northwestern territory." No information is available on how this situation was resolved.
From The Continental Op: Another possible appearance of Hitler is in MARVEL TREASURY SPECIAL#1 (Captain America's Bicentennial Battles). The Contemplator sends Captain America back in time to World War II, where he rescues Bucky from being interrogated by Hitler, the Red Skull and some Nazi officers. The story doesn't make it clear whether Cap meets the real Hitler, an alternate universe Hitler, or an illusion of the past.
At some point Hitler gave a cigarette holder to Wolfgang von Strucker as revealed in Skrull Kill Krew#3.
Thanks to Per Degaton for pointing out Hitler's Men's Adventure#23/2 appearance. He also noted that in real-life, (Adolf) Hitler was never called Schikelgruber (though his father was) and that he was never a paperhanger.
I placed the Men's Adventure appearance before the first Dr. Strange flashback because I think that somebody
like Heinrich Krowler wouldn't have shown any interest in Hitler before he gained the coin.
On Hitler's appearance in Battle#16 ("I saw Hitler die")
John McDonagh: It does not fit into the Earth-616 history as it took place after Goebbels had killed his family (Goebbel's corpse was shown in a panel) and took place on April 30, 1945, in the bunker, with Eva Braun.
Ronald Byrd pointed out that it could've been a double (see All-Winners Comics#11)
John McDonagh caught the appearance in War Comics#30 (reprinted in War is Hell#6) and Marvel Age#109.
Per Degaton on Hitler's alleged son Gottlieb:
I guess what could have happened was that Hitler had Gottlieb after he entered the clone body Zola prepared for him. Since thanks to the timescale, the lacunae between Hitler's death (in his original body) and his first recorded public appearance as the Hate-Monger in FF I#21 now stands as at least a period of 45 years (1990-1945), and since Arnim Zola works in South America, this could work.
In Uncanny Tales#17 Hitler was replaced in a job as chief torturer by Stalin. This tells me that he had been sent to Mephisto's Hell because
there Stalin had been for years until Satannish stole his soul to turn him into Coldsteel.
In Marvel Mystery Comics#34 writer Carl Burgos saw his own creations Human Torch and Toro spring to life from his drawing board and give him the idea for a comic to mock Hitler. In the story Torch and Toro guarded the comic books from Nazi attempts to destroy them as they are distributed them from planes to German citizens. Hitler ordered anyone who laughed at the comics to be shot and demanded Carl Burgos to be assassinated. Carl met with Torch, Toro and Sub-Mariner at a diner where a Nazi agent had replaced the soda jerk. Carl collapsed after drinking the soda. Torch and Toro apprehended the spy and Carl recovered.
In Rugged Action#4 (June, 1955) a man claimed to have killed Hitler long before he actually died. This was most likely a doppelganger.
Captain America/Black Panther: Flags of Our Fathers#1-4 (June-September, 2010) is a nice series by Reginald Hudlin, but it does not work within Marvel's continuity for a few reasons. Hitler appeared in #1.
Deadpool IV#26 (May, 2014) is a time travel flashback story and shows Hitler travelling through time to kill Nick Fury. Deadpool and Cable not only save Fury from this time travelling Hitler, but also kill him. This version of Hitler most likely came from another reality...maybe the whole story took place in another reality.
The story in Battle#17 is a flashback story leading through the start of World War II until its end.
Thanks to John Kaminski for adding Hitler's appearances in Combat Kelly#26/4 & Uncanny Tales#17. Thanks to Monzo for the scan of Hitler's death at the hands of the Human Torch (Jim Hammond). Thanks to Markus Raymond for adding Red Skull, Namor 70th Anniversary and with the help from GCD many missing Golden Age appearances.
There are still tons of Hitler appearances from the Atlas era that I know I'm missing, including Battle#18, 26, 28, 30, Justice#20, 34, War Comics#24, 25, 28, 30, Battlefront#13, 19, 20, Battlefield#2. If you can provide a summary of Hitler's appearances, I'd be most appreciative!

Thanks to Jordan Brodie for pointing out the "Father" of Erowhen alias.
Adolf Hitler should not be confused with:
