John Edgar Hoover (died October 24[1], 1925) was the Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. He tried to arrest a strange group in Texas which led to his death.


According to Nate Heywood, Hoover was a repulsive human being (by 21st century standards) by enforcing the paranoid practice of suspecting immigrants of being enemy agents. He later founded the Federal Bureau of Investigation, an improved version of his original Bureau.

However, this timeline was derailed by the Legends accidentally in 1925, where he died by their blunder. To keep Hoover's death a secret, Ava Sharpe had Gary Green eat the corpse and use a spell to make Nate look like Hoover in order to keep the timeline intact.[2]
