Of the three, Hitler really made the strongest impression with his hate-driven tirades and the lethal German war machine that could make his Nazi dreams a reality.

Hitler and his Nazi party were staunch believers in Aryan superiority and that all lesser races needed to be removed from the world.

The ones who got sore the most were the Americans of Jewish descent (many of whom came from families that had just emigrated from Europe or had come from there themselves). In particular were a couple of Jewish-American artists named Hymie Simon and Jacob Kurtzberg (or as they’re better known as: Joe Simon and Jack Kirby).  And they were just itching to let Hitler know what they and many other Americans thought of him.
