Comment: In the CHAMELEON story, the German spy headquarters has a regular cross for a symbol, and Der Fuerher is depicted in a portrait without a moustache. Strange!

Comment: Not strange at all. America was still technically neutral at the time, and most comic book publishers still tried to avoid calling Hitler or Nazis in general by name.

Comment: There were also portraits done of Hitler without a moustache in Germany as well.
