Müller’s Secret SS

During the fall of Berlin, Hitler’s inner circle was collapsing. Himmler lost faith in a German victory and to that end he had betrayed Hitler. In the final hours of Hitler’s life he ordered that directive Auferstehung(rebirth) be carried out. Heinrich Müller, Chief of the Gestapo, was ordered to escape Berlin and travel west to the Harz mountains. In a subterranean fortress and laboratory Müller carried out the task of preparing for Hitler’s arrival. In Berlin the Red army was closing in. Berlin had fallen. the Soviets were blocks from the bunker. Eva Braun bit a cyanide capsule and Hitler shot himself. Their bodies were carried to the bombed-out garden behind the Reich Chancellery where they were placed in a shell crater. A strange liquid was poured on the bodies and set ablaze. The chemical burned hot and fast, it produced a thick black smoke that consumed the garden as the city shook as the shelling continued. Directive Auferstehung had begun. when the smoke finally cleared and the crater was investigated, it was found to have two skeletons. One black and charred, crumbling as the heat died. And the second that appeared to be fully intact and made entirely of glass crystal.

The status of Berlin did not concern Müller. His task in the Auferstehung was to prepare a clone body to receive the fuhrer’s consciousness. Ten such clone had been grown in the Harz lab. All brain-dead, waiting for a host. They were held in tubes the bodies kept in stasis to prevent degradation. In the weeks that followed the fall of Berlin all but three of the Hitler clone bodies survived. A power failure caused five of the bodies to rot. Another fell victim to a rat attack due to a faulty seal. And one more some how woke up and started walking around. It inadvertently fell off a catwalk and was unsalvageable. despite these setbacks Müller, continued to man the antenna at center of the laboratory. The Vril antenna. Hitler had been taking doses of Vril, an ancient compound hypothesized to grant god-like abilities. The Vril antenna was a point of focus for Hitler’s consciousness. His consciousness had been released into the ether when his body was burned and it was Müller’s job to bring it back to a host body. As the months went on Müller grew less optimistic that the plan would work. The three remaining vessels wouldn’t keep forever. After almost a year, on April 20th, the facility stung to life. alarms sounded, the laboratory staff ran to their post. The antenna was active. Müller Prepped the most viable vessel for the transfer, positioning it directly under the antenna. A sick green light had begun to emanate from center of the antenna. For a moment time stopped, the room was illuminated fully. When the room fell dark again Müller walked cautiously over to the vessel. As he stood over the approximately 25 year old version of hitler… He spoke! “It’s my birthday” the fuhrer exclaimed. Then with the speed of Zeus he grabbed the collar of Müller’s lab coat and pulled him close “Finish what we started here…Use this place, the Vril, to build my army…and take back the world!” as the last words left his lips the grip on Müller’s collar loosened. Hitler was dead. Again.

Müller used the facility to build his army. The supernatural properties of the Vril allowed him to create monstrous creations, enhance inert abilities in test subjects and even reanimate the dead. Paranoia plagued Müller as his work continued. To protect himself he created an armor suit known as the Vril suit. As time wore on he became dependent on the Vril and soon after realized he could no longer survive outside the Vril suit. It was then he became know as Vril Müller. Toward the end of 1952 Heinrich Müller’s Secret SS was poised to march on Moscow. In the final days before the attack, a small group of prisoner test subjects escaped and detonated an experimental Vril bomb. This weapon buried the facility finally crushing any notion of the Third Reich’s return. It is not known if Heinrich Müller survived, but if he did he is under a mountain.

    It’s cool that you referenced actual people and things; it makes the story infinitely more interesting. I love WWII related stories, especially fiction regarding Hitler’s supernatural interests. I was actually hoping there was more to read. 🙂

    • I like to add a little authenticity in with all the impossible. I always liked the idea of secret histories.
