The Freedom Fighters are the liberty's last line of defense in Earth-X, a world where the Axis Powers won World War II and conquered the planet. The Freedom Fighters operate in groups within the Resistance and oppose the Axis forces. Members The Ray, Doll Man, Phantom Lady, Red Tornado, and Black Condor aided fleeing refugees in Tulsa amid an assualt from the New Reich. Ray did a fly-by, blew up two tanks then returned to the other Freedom Fighters. He reported the refugees were headed their way. Phantom Lady ordered them to hold the line and give them a chance to escape to safety. Ray, Condor, and Tornado took to the skies. Ray blasted a Reich gunner blocking a bridge then a tank lifted up by Tornado. Phantom Lady and Doll Man fought soldiers on another bridge. To their surprise, the Reich retreated. However, it was only because Overgirl, Black Arrow, and Blitzkrieg were up. Overgirl blasted her heat vision and took out a bridge. Black Arrow opened with exploding arrows.
Overgirl focused on Red Tornado, while Blitzkrieg fought the Ray, and Arrow shot at Black Condor. Phantom Lady temporarily blinded Arrow while Doll Man threw one of his net arrows in the air. Condor redirected it at Arrow and snagged him. Overgirl pinned Red Tornado underwater and unleashed a continuous heat vision blast at his forehead. He attempted to use his hands but she simply ripped his arms off. Phantom Girl erected a vast shadow around Overgirl while Ray pulled Tornado to the surface. Condor diverted Overgirl's attention. With his systems suffering total failure, Tornado entrusted his Neuro-Cortex to Ray and told him to destroy it to prevent the Reichsmen from accessing his memories since he knew the location of the Freedom Fighters' base of operations. Vibe arrived via breach and joined his comrades. However, Overgirl killed Doll Man with her heat vision then Condor impulsively confronted the Reichsmen to create a chance for the others to escape. Phantom Girl aided him. Blitzkrieg charged forward and fatally stabbed Ray.
Unwilling to let the cortex fall in the wrong hands, Vibe opened a breach to another dimension and pushed Ray through. Ray met his Earth-1 counterpart and gave him his powers and the cortex before he vanished. In the aftermath, Arrow and Blitzkrieg continued searching for Black Condor, Phantom Lady, and Vibe. With Ray missing in action with Tornado's cortex, Overgirl ordered the Reich's forces to prepare for a final strike on the Freedom Fighters' base and eliminate them once and for all. Black Condor and Phantom Lady returned to the Resistance Headquarters, the former Grand Central Terminal, in New York City. Some time later, Resistance soldiers discovered Ray inside headquarters. Phantom Lady revealed her presence and ordered the soldiers to stand down. Condor was relieved to see him but Ray explained he was from another Earth in a different dimension then explained how he ended up with their Ray's powers and how Overgirl recovered Tornado's Neuro-Cortex. Phantom Lady wasn't pleased to learn about the Cortex.
Ray wanted to make things right. Condor pointed out they were short handed but believed they had to abandon the base. Some of the Resistance were against splitting up because it would end the organization and there was nowhere else to go while some favored it as a way to stay alive. Phantom Lady tried to rally them for a last stand but it was pointed out the New Reich outgunned and outpowered them. Condor tried to appeal to them and remind them their parents and grandparents started the Resistance but to no avail. They broke out into arguing. Ray moved everyone with a speech about freedom and fighting for a better world. A sentry alerted them of incoming forces. The New Reich made their move on the headquarters. The Freedom Fighters faced the New Reichsmen on the roof. Overgirl stated Ray didn't belong. Ray begged to differ and charged her. Black Arrow fired his arrows at Black Condor. Phantom Girl fired shadow spheres at Blitzkrieg but he dodged them, grabbed her cape, spun her around, and threw her.
The Reichsmen took the first round but Ray vowed they wouldn't stop. Overgirl had an officer bring them the captive Vibe. She revealed the Reich's plan to exploit his powers to invade and conquer infinite Earths of the Multiverse. Ray refused to comply. Overgirl ordered everyone to be killed. Vibe tossed the officer over the edge of the roof and jumped to the Freedom Fighters. The Reich began to parachute over the city. A Resistance soldier triggered hidden explosives and blew up a tank and several Reich soldiers. Both sides began to exchange gunfire. Several Resistance soldiers were trapped by debris but support came from teammates on the roofs. One fired his rocket launcher at the tanks. Phantom Lady expanded a shadow sphere around herself and engaged Blitzkrieg. She took a punch then kicked him. Overgirl and Ray contined exchanging blows in the sky. Condor tackled Black Arrow. Vibe aided some Resistance soldiers and blew up a tank. Overgirl wondered why Ray was fighting for a world that wasn't his.
Ray reformed behind her and blasted her into the pavement then unleased a salvo but she nailed him in the chest with heat vision then decked him tino a building. She grabbed him and stated he was only prolonging the suffering of the Resistance. Ray stated he spent his whole life trying to make the world a better place and Earth-X needed him the most. A gunner blasted Overgirl away. Black Arrow took out the battery. Blitzkrieg took out some Resistance then took off. After some Reich soldiers landed, Phantom Lady appeared and knocked them out. Overgirl kept punching Ray but he kept standing up in defiance. She fired her heat vision and he countered with a light blast but entered a deadlock. While Overgirl and Ray were at a stalemate, Condor stomped Arrow. Vibe and Condor took on Blitzkrieg next. Blitzkrieg punched Condor but Phantom Lady threw one of her shadow spheres on his head and blinded him. Vibe punched him out. She was relieved they finally took him out.
Ray started losing ground rapidly but steeled himself and released a massive amount of power. Overgirl was set across the city into the bay. Several soldiers, Arrow, and Blitzkrieg were arrested while the rest retreated. Vibe, Phantom Lady, and Black Condor found Ray victorious. Phantom Lady was at a loss for words. Condor was impressed. Ray realized they won. She contended not entirely. Ray still blamed himself for not destroying the cortex. Phantom Lady informed him no one was ever ready to be a hero but he was one now. Condor believed their Ray would be proud. Vibe remarked their Ray would be a little grossed out by the sentimentality then asked Ray if he was ready to return home. Ray turned him and down and explained he was still needed more on Earth-X. Ray revealed he worked with their counterparts on his Earth. He was pretty sure Condor's counterpart, John Trujillo, had a crush on Phantom Lady's counterpart, Jenny Knight. Phantom Lady was amused and hinted some things were different on their Earth. Condor admitted he was gay. A soldier delivered the interrogation report from the captured Reichsmen. They departed to make a move for the Chancellor, the leader of the New Reich.
