The Freedom Fighters is one of the superhero teams in Batman: The Brave and the Bold.
The Freedom Fighters are a group of American superheroes dedicated to fighting tyranny and oppression spread by authoritarian regimes. During World War II, the group was formed to fight against the Nazi Party. After the war ended, the team remained active to fight the good fight. Sometime in the 21st century, Uncle Sam brought in a new member, Plastic Man, to help them liberate Qward. The others were skeptical of his patriotism but were convinced otherwise when Plastic Man saved their lives and revived Uncle Sam with a special rendition of Yankee Doodle.

After the formation of the United States of America in 1776, the Founding Fathers initiated a mystic ritual that created the American Talisman, the embodiment of the young nation's patriotic spirit. When needed, it would usually magically bond to an American citizen displaying a high level of patriotism and manifest as Uncle Sam. He appeared throughout history, such as the Battle of Gettysburg in July 1863. During the World War II era, the Talisman bonded to a man named Samuel and Uncle Sam appeared at a war bonds rally with Batman, who was probably time traveling. Armed with several abilities, Uncle Sam's powers are proportionate to the country's faith in the ideals of freedom and liberty. He later formed and leads the Freedom Fighters.
In the present era, Uncle Sam received a warning from Teletig of planet Qward, warning them of a subversive threat. Impressed by Plastic Man's spirit, Uncle Sam invited him to join the Freedom Fighters. In the course of the mission, Uncle Sam exhausted his power and vanished, telling Plastic Man to unleash the spirit of freedom on Qward. Plastic Man then interrupted the Supreme Chairman's live execution of the Freedom Fighters and sang Yankee Doodle. The heroes and Qwardians joined in. The level of patriotism revived Uncle Sam and the Qwardian Weaponers were defeated.
