Mark Gruenwald and Paul Neary on a “new characters” kick, and they’re all “go USA” types. First the Flag Smasher and now the Super Patriot.

He’s created by the U.S. Government as their new superhero, to replace Captain America (who isn’t tied to the government any more). And to advertise him, there’s a staged fight against terrorists dressed like Captain America.

It’s a cool idea.

The real Cap is attacked while on his stupid sky sled.

He has to jump off in mid-air to save himself.

There’s something more than a little ironic about a guy wearing the American flag shouting, “Geronimo!”
