Ernst Oeming was a German Nazi scientist.
Ernst Oeming was an ingenious Nazi scientist, so prolific, he was sometimes referred to as the "Nazi Einstein". Many reports of Oeming's work state that he was close to giving the Axis Powers the Atomic Bomb. However, all of Oeming's notes were destroyed when an assassination attempt destroyed Oeming's car, taking Oeming with it. The Gestapo moved what was left of Oeming's body to Hunte Castle in Austria where Nazi scientists, among them Herman von Klempt, had managed to communicate with "living beings in space."
The Nazis immediately began preparing Oeming's body to be launched into space to provide a host body for the space creatures. On the night of March 20, 1939, the date Oeming's body was to be launched, the American hero The Lobster led a group of American troops in an attack on Hunte Castle. In a state of panic, the Nazis launched Oeming's ship before the roof's doors could open.
Years later, Oeming's craft was called back to Earth by Herman von Klempt, bringing the entity the Conqueror Worm that had possessed the scientist's body.
