Franklin Delano Roosevelt (January 30, 1882 - April 12, 1945), was a human who lived during the 19th and 20th centuries on Earth. Popularly known by his initals FDR, he was President of the United States from 1933 until his death in 1945, the longest-serving US President in history. Roosevelt came into the office while America was in the throes of the Great Depression, and would later lead the United States during the Second World War.

Roosevelt is well known for the saying "the only thing we have to fear is fear itself," spoken during his First Inaugural Address. (DS9 novelization: "Far Beyond the Stars")

Images of Roosevelt were included in visual representations of Earth history presented to Captains Jonathan Archer (ENT episode: "Storm Front, Part II") and James T. Kirk. (TOS episode: "The City on the Edge of Forever")

Photographs of Roosevelt were prominent in several holodeck programs set in the 1930s and 1940s. (TNG episodes: "The Big Goodbye", "Manhunt"; VOY episode" "The Killing Game, Part I").

Alternate Timelines

In an alternate timeline in which McCoy prevented Edith Keeler's death, she founded the American Pacifist Movement, a large and influential peace organization. On February 23, 1936, Roosevelt met with Keeler during a visit to New York City, where they discussed both the social issues of the day, as well as importance of maintaining America's neutralitiy toward the military conflicts then spreading through Europe.

The growth of Keeler's organization in the following years managed to influence Roosevelt's foreign and military policies, forcing him to assume a less aggressive stance against the Axis Powers in the early years of World War II. Because of these changes, Japan did not attack Pearl Harbor in 1941, and the United States' entry into the war was delayed by several years.

On December 29, 1941, Roosevelt paid an official visit to Atlanta, Georgia. In response, the governor of Georgia, a political opponent, invited the American Pacifist Movement to hold a rally at the state capitol on the same day.

Japan did attack Hawaii and other American territories in the Pacific in 1944. Immediately afterwards, Roosevelt asked for and received a declaration of war from Congress. (TOS novel: Crucible: Provenance of Shadows).

First appearance



Franklin Delano Roosevelt was the President of the United States during World War II and was instrumental in the formation of the Justice Society of America and the All-Star Squadron. As President, he was present when the magus John Zatara saved New York City from flooding due to the machinations of the evil scientist Berhener. [1]


In November of 1940, German Chancellor Adolph Hitler acquired a powerful mystic weapon known as the Spear of Destiny. With it, he intended on manipulating its power to dominate all of Europe. A British officer named Smythe learned of Hitler's plans and informed American president Roosevelt. Roosevelt, pressured by Congress to maintain an isolationist stance, refused to openly involve the United States in England's war with Germany. Instead, he selected two "Mystery Men" from a top-secret dossier to use as civilian agents against Hitler's forces – the Flash and the Green Lantern.

FDR Forms the JSA (Pre-Crisis)
The wartime JSA

Summoning both men to a special office in Gotham City, Agent Smythe outlined the nature of their mission and told them to fly to McMurdie Castle in Scotland. McMurdie was the site of a special Nazi operation led by an officer named Major Streicher. Streicher's scientists developed a giant robot, known as the Mordmaschine (the Murder Machine). Arriving at the Nazi keep, the Murder Machine proved more powerful than either of the heroes expected and it quickly incapacitated them. Streicher sent the Flash and Green Lantern's unconscious bodies to Berlin, Germany – a gift for the Führer.

Prostrating before the ranks of the German Army, Hitler proudly displayed the captive heroes before the masses. He then used the Spear of Destiny to conjure an army of Norse Valkyrie. The Valkyries were to act as escorts for a prototype long-range bomber that targeted Washington D.C. Green Lantern and the Flash broke free of their bonds and fought the Valkyries, but were unable to prevent the bomber from taking off.

Meanwhile, the sorcerer known as Doctor Fate discovered that Hitler was in possession of the Spear of Destiny. He knew that such a weapon in the hands of a tyrant could only spell destruction for the entire world. Perceiving an imminent Nazi invasion of England, Doctor Fate enlisted the aid of other so-called Mystery Men including, the Atom, Hawkman, Hourman and the Spectre. Fate's magic teleported the heroes to the White Cliffs of Dover where they assisted the British soldiers in fighting off the Nazi hordes. The Spectre single-handedly demolished a fleet of Nazi warships.

With England's shores temporarily safe from enemy attack, the heroes met up with the Flash and Green Lantern, who in turn warned them of the bomber attack on Washington. They followed the plane back towards the United States, and Green Lantern succeeded in destroying it with his ring before it could deploy its deadly payload. However, one of the Valkyries, a warrior named Gudra, managed to evade capture and snuck into the White House. She burst into the Oval Office with the intent of assassinating President Roosevelt. The Atom leapt to his defense, deflecting Gudra's spear, but his heroism proved futile, as Gudra struck again, plunging her weapon into Roosevelt's chest, killing him. Horrified at witnessing the death of such an important American statesman, the Spectre pleaded with the Voice of God to resurrect him. The Voice agreed, but gave warning that Roosevelt was fated to die once more, on the eve of his nation's victory over the Axis powers.

Roosevelt revived, and neither he nor the other assembled heroes possessed any knowledge of the President's passing brush with death. Recognizing that American involvement in Europe was inevitable, President Roosevelt suggested that the heroes should marshal their forces into a cohesive fighting unit aimed at protecting America's home front. Thus, they became known as the Justice Society of America. [2]

Mr. America

Mr. America was a member of the All-Star Squadron, but his main contribution to the war effort was more clandestine. Thomson was asked by President Roosevelt himself to go to Nazi Germany and infiltrate the Gestapo. Thomson took on the identity of Hauptmann Riker and began his mission. His most frequent adversaries were Mister Ito (also known as the Little One), a German/Japanese diminutive assassin, and the Queen Bee. He worked for the Americans for several years behind enemy lines.
