Pop-culture of the Kaiserreich

First note the guy wrote the Text was not a German

High above Berlin
Have Terrorist sieved a Building
Take Hostage and Declare War

One men escaped

He is alone, tired and only man who can save the Day !

Some ideas for Marvel Heroes from this thread: https://www.alternatehistory.com/forum/threads/the-peoples-princess-tales-of-the-wonder-woman-a-dc-kaiserreich-setting.452198/page-29#post-19615727

Titanium Man: a brilliant working class engineer builds an nearly invincible armoured suit that lets him fight evil.

Colonel Freedom: a super-soldier who fights for Truth, Justice and the American-Syndicalist way.

Ragnar: a Viking warrior frozen in ice for a thousand years, he fights the forces of darkness with a magic axe.

Commander Mar-EL: an female intergalactic peacekeeper sent to protect Earth from aliens that resemble Germans.

Shadow Lion: an African American man in Louisiana receives a magic talisman that gives him mystical powers and superhuman strength to fight oppression

Green Goliath: a mishap for a mild mannered scientist lets him transform at will into a green skinned superhero with unlimited strength but peerless intellect

Microman: basically Ant-Man

Cosmic Saviors: TTL version of Guardians of the Galaxy because we need Groot and a talking raccoon.

I'm not sure about Spider-Man and the others, but I'm open to ideas.
 
Note: Most of my posts here are set in the Ashes of the Kaiserreich canon(my mod) up until 2010(when canon ends and the mod begins proper)







Images from the Massively Multiplayer Online game Red Star, described by it's creators as "Iron Heel in Space". Red Sun depicts an dystopian sci-fi setting where the Consortium, a powerful mega-corporation, has enslaved most of the milky way galaxy. Players play as members of the "Intergalactic Brotherhood", which seeks to overthrow the dominance of the Consortium and establish socialism through the known galaxy. After creating an account and downloading the game client, players can choose their species and their origin story, with origin stories ranging from being rebelling slaves and workers to slum dwellers and to even various defectors from the Consortium; these origin stories making for a very diverse early game experience and even allowing the player to start at a higher level with regards to some of the origin stories the player could unlock through gameplay on another character. The game has a main plot that sees the player help launch various insurgencies wearing down the forces of the Consortium and turn worlds against hypercapitalist tyranny, with the vanilla content culminating with the Brotherhood winning their first major victory against the Consortium. The plot has since been expanded with two expansions introducing more origin stories and species to play as, along with the introduction of other villains aside from the Consortium such as the reactionary imperialist Phoenix Empire and ultra-militaristic Hyperion Front, thought of as analogues for the British Commonwealth and the Archanglesk Accord respectively, especially with the lore that the Phoenix Empire and the Hyperion Front were once allies, but split over conflicting geopolitical interests. Much of the gameplay focuses on the player as part of a greater cause, and as such, working with other players is very much encouraged by the gameplay, through not fully compulsory outside of instances. Red Star is very popular within nations affliated with the Fourth Internationale and the Calcutta Pact, and it has been seen as a strong competitor to World of Warcraft in the Pacific States and the Co-Prosperity Sphere, through it has been banned in countries affiliated with the British Commonwealth and the Archanglesk Accord.

So I take it my regular MMO strategy of going it alone until I absolutely cant anymore and then very poorly communicate with someone else into soaking the damage for me wont be very suited for games made in the socialist countries.

What would HOI4 mods be like in a KRTL?

"Aftermath of the great war: what if the entente won the first Weltkrieg?"
A total conversion mod of the famous video game Herzen Aus Eisen IV.

The mod takes place in an alternate history timeline where Germany and the central powers were defeated in November 1918 after signing an armistice. The US joins the Entente and the tide turns against Germany. This is due to Germany returning to unrestricted submarine warfare and sinking a US ship & trying to utilize Mexico to distract the US from European affairs, This causes directly the opposite.

The mod is known for its highly evolving story as there is no canon after January 1936. Germany could be persuaded by the new ruling party of NSDAP to completely transform Germany and take revenge on Europe, remove the NSDAP by a Coup d'état (which could remain in place as an ''emergency powers granted by the people'', return power to the exiled Kaiser, or return to a republican democracy).

The US could replace its democratic president Franklin D. Roosevelt in the 36' elections with the republican Alf Landon, be successful in ending the depression and admired by the public as Roosevelt so much that an unprecedented third & fourth term could be won in an election (Roosevelt dies shortly after entering the fourth term to avoid being eternal president by players).
It should be noted that for the US the game always changes candidates for both parties depending on who is president for 1936, 1940, 1944, and 1948, clash with other great powers across the world after ending the depression and reforming the military and even dominate the world if played with a skilled player. It is not possible, however, to end the democratic process in the United States (Huey Long was assassinated in 1935 and reed died in 1920).
There is a slight chance for the progressive party to take power in the 48' elections and elect the Wallace/Taylor ticket, however, if the player wishes to role play and be immersed in the story of US politics but very specific choices have to be made in the follow up to the election in order for the progressive party to be competitive with the democratic & Republican parties.

The United Kingdom is slowly recovering from the enormous sacrifice in manpower and resources made 20 years ago but it appears that dark clouds are rising over Europe once again. It has to decide which Ideology will prevail in such a dangerous period and whatever to try and distance itself from mainland European affairs or try and actively police the continent. What should Great Britan answer to the angry population in India and if it even possible to stay in control there is another difficult question (a skilled player could theoretically both defeat all other great powers and deal with the revolts in the colonies across the world).

France is a mess. Its population is afraid and angry at Germany due to the Great war's Western front being fought inside of France borders and most of the fighting age generation dying or wounded in this colossal effort. The Communists could take power in this unstable atmosphere, and France has to decide on how much a gamble it is to engage Germany early on. Perhaps the lessons of the Great war is to invest in defense by building the enormous Ligne Maginot.

The Bolsheviks won the Russian civil war.
20 years after, The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) is the elephant in the room. The Western powers are afraid of the dictator in power (Georgian Joseph Vissarionovich Stalin. a new name for Ioseb Besarionis dzе Jughashvili), and the large manpower and resources potentially available to this vast nation who is the first in the world that is in control in this new, strange ideology called Communism.
No one knows what the USSR will do if Germany and France have another conflict.

The player can choose several paths, such as Stalin successfully removing opposition (both actual and imaginary opponents) and finishing reforming the USSR in his image or removing Stalin in a power struggle with Lavrentiy Beria. Both sides could prevail, or both so weaken that an exiled Trotsky successfully manage to engineer his return in triumph. Then, the player has to decide on how to deal with the coming conflict in Europe and the conflicting interest with Japan.

The Mod is in a never-ending state of development, being in a continues development for 14 years (the mod started in HAE II and moved to HAE IV). It is considered to be one of the reasons to buy HAE IV as it is widely known for its numerous post-1936 stories headcanon for players.

This is more general than set in the AoKR verse but here is how a DBWI would appear. It wouldn't be word-for-word:

* Far-right Britain would probably have Leese or Rotha appear as leader assuming it gets a path
* Someone else leads "ultranationalist" Italy, I'm thinking Italo Balbo or someone associated with him. Alternatively, Italy is a stable democracy.
* Germany goes revanchist as per OTL. The revanchists in Germany are slightly less godawful than the Nazis unless maybe Goering gets a path.
* If the USSR goes nasty totalitarian, it might not be Stalin as leader, but Beria or Molotov as leader, or even Trotsky(at least until the rework where it is found he has no support among the Bolsheviks and he is replaced with any of the others mentioned)
* FDR might not be the progressive New Deal candidate, it might be Floyd Olson or Henry Wallace instead
* Spanish Civil War will be inevitable

As for Cold War alt hists, if WK2 is an total capitalist victory, you'd have a extremely dystopian TNO-esque alt hist where Savinkov and the Totalist Internationale win WK2, if it is a limited capitalist victory(CSA wins 2ACW but Entente and Mittleuropa win WK2), expect a more uplifting(from a Syndie pov) Krasnacht-esque mod being made in the 4th internationale competing with the TNO-esque mod(which has the same political framework, but the Internationale are all libsoc or a benevolent interpretation of Leninism). A Kalterkreieg analogue will be the OTL Iron Curtain analogue.

If WK2 ends with a Syndicalist victory, you'd have a TNO esque dystopian cold war mod featuring a Jennifer Government/Iron Heel style dystopia with a Cold War between an autocratic Mittleuropa and a fascistic Russia or a national populist Entente where unregulated capitalism runs rampant, with the CSA being the good guys in all of this but pushed to the edge(or alternatively Cold War between a corporatist USA or McArthurist USA vs. an autocratic Mittleuropa, with a left leaning China, along with few Syndicalist nations in Latin America and Asia that could come together and hopefully turn the tide...especially with one of the autocratic powers on a TNO-esque style collapse once their leader dies and the opportunity for a left wing uprising that dosen't go DSR there)[1]. A Krasnacht analogue will be the OTL Iron Curtain analogue.

[1]: I know that Pelley is the worst choice for USA and the Kaiserreich tv thread plays him up as the totally evil foil to Long, but frankly, IMO hypercapitalist junta or McArthurist USA under a brutal junta(or worse..full Ceaser) is more likely as a horrific dystopia than totally cursed Christian Commonwealth of America because I think they'd be more organized and have more support from high sources.

Any ideas what Command & Conquer: Red Alert would be like?

Unregulated capitalism running rampant seems like more of a marklib/some brands of pataut. Natpops would respond to such things with cries of degeneracy most likely.
