Katrina Krieger is the grand-daughter of Captain Naziís brother. It seems likely that her grandfather Wolf emigrated to the US after the war, and that from then on they were ordinary German-Americans. However, Wolf also had a secret, which he shared with Katrina when she was but a little girl.
The old man was the caretaker of a suspended animation capsule hosting Captain Nazi (Albrecht Krieger). Katrina helped him with the maintenance and he indoctrinated her, convincing her that Nazis had been right and that his brother Albrecht was a King Arthur-like figure.
Katrina created the super-powered identity of Madame Libertine, perhaps by using leftover Captain Nazi technologies. Her goal was to steal rare supplies needed to keep the leaky, worn-out suspended animation capsule running. She also murdered random persons out of bigotry.
