Secret Origins #31 from 1988 in a story by Roy Thomas and artist Mike Bair (who did the cover too) revises the epic origin through the unwieldy lens of Post-Crisis on Infinite Earths continuity which forbid the use of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman and other key DC characters from WWII activity. We see a different team battle Hitler and save the day, though in some remarkably different ways which result weirdly in FDR dying and getting revived. The hi-jinks which had to be played to "simplify" the long DCU history really makes of a shambles of that original goal.
More on Roy Thomas and his contributions to his favorite team in a later post.
