U: Unknown Soldier


Here's my "U" listing for April's A-Z Challenge! And the theme is, "Golden Age Comic Book Characters with the Same Name As Modern-Day Characters."

The Unknown Soldier first showed up in  Our Flag Comics #1, 1941. He had no alter ego, but could fly, had super-strength, and he carried a "nitro gun" which fired explosive bullets.

DC's Unknown Soldier was introduced in Star-Spangled War Stories #151, published in 1970. He was a facially-disfigured master of disguise.



Thanks for your time.

    1. Almost as varied as the critters you've been listing in your blog this month. Ha.

  2. That is a very... heavy term, to use as a superhero alter-ego.

  3. Master of disguise sure gets thrown around a lot.

  4. I think being unknown can be a lonely place to be, and I hope these soldiers, even if they are "unknown" by some, can be known to others.

  5. I like this guy. The master of disguise disfigured guy makes me wonder how he got injured.

    1. I wouldn't imagine you'd have read a lot of war comics.

  7. I like this comic hero because it picks a hero which is always represented by the unknown soldier
