Not much has been revealed regarding the early history of Franz Mittelstaedt, save that he was struck by electrical energy from a faulty generator which granted him superhuman powers. With these powers, he called himself Blitzkreig and began a career as a costumed crime fighter. At one point, he was transported alongside various other international heroes by the alien Grandmaster in order to participate in a so-called Contest of Champions, but he returned at the end of the encounter. Later, he was seen among those who helped the spaceknight Rom against the alien Dire Wraiths.

At some point, Mittelstaedt joined a group of German superheroes, the Schutz-Heiliggruppe, and he was among their number when the team was sent to remand the Nazi criminal Red Skull to Germany to stand trial for war crimes, although the Skull later escaped.

Later still, Mittelstaedt was on assignment in South America where he was accosted by the villain Zeitgeist, also known as Everyman, who killed Mittelstaedt. Mittelstaedt is survived by his wife and son.
