In the action-adventure comic book "Time Bomb," written by the "Jonah Hex" team of Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray, Adolph Hitler may yet have his revenge on humanity.

The book begins in Berlin in the near future, as builders of a subway tunnel discover an underground city built near the end of World War II by Hitler.

"While they're down there investigating the city, they accidentally trigger a missile launch," Palmiotti said in an interview at Comic-Con. "And the missile launches through Berlin, blows up in the atmosphere, and they find out that the missile's payload was a virus, a mega-virus."

This mega-virus has the potential to destroy all the human life on Earth, and it's spreading fast. A secret, and abandoned, U.S. project may be humanity's only hope.

"The American government had this operation, a thing called Time Bomb, which would send things back in time, people back in time," Palmiotti said. "But it cost a billion dollars every time they use it, and the program's been dumped. Well, now they have to use it."

A four-person crew is assembled to go back in time a week to prevent the firing of the missile. But something goes wrong.
