Thanks in part to Steve Rogers, the nationalistic superhero is one of the key archetypes of costumed super-fiction.  Of course, not every nation has the same level of representation…  but we’re here to help!  Welcome to Ten Things!

Whooshman-Bicarbonate Films, in conjunction with ‘An Amateur Comics Historian’, and Police Chief Marge Gunderson, Presents:

TEN SWEDISH SUPERS!

10) CAPTAIN SWEDEN

Captain Sweden
Sometimes, our Ten Things topics are super-easy, and sometimes, they require one to scour the depth and breadth of superhero fiction to find the requisite heroes.  Case in point: Captain Sweden, a hero seen in ‘Fun And Games’ magazine in the 1970s, as part of a puzzle also feature Captains Britain, America and several others, where the goal was to identify the flags of many nations.  Though this is the sole appearance of all these characters, soon enough they’ll be back as part of a pitch by Warren Ellis or Kurt Busiek, and will be fully revamped…

Matthew Peterson

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture!

And a nice red uniform.
