First Appearance: Nick Fury, Agent of SHIELD I#13 (July, 1969)
Powers/Abilities: None. He has access to a variety of high-tech weaponry, including a virtually impenetrable force field, air platforms, battle-tanks, etc. His Ultimate Weapon allegedly packed the power to obliterate the entire UN building with a single blast.
He is served by a small militia of like-minded warriors.
The Super-Patriot has a fanatical, reactionary love of the nation of the United States of America. He sees all foreigners as impure and a danger to the nation, and he sees the US government as traitors for allowing the foreigners into the country.
(NFaoSH#13) - The Super-Patriot hatched a plot
to blow up the United Nations(UN) building, to show his
organization's disapproval of allowing foreigners on American
soil. SHIELD broke up one of his allies, by the Super-Patriot and
his legions converted their platform into an aircraft and used a
smokescreen to escape.
Their order was infiltrated by SHIELD agent Jasper Sitwell, who thus learned of their plans and informed Nick Fury. Fury donned Sitwell's disguise, enabling him to approach the Super-Patriot's platform outside the UN building. As the Super-Patriot activated his Ultimate Weapon, Fury attacked the Super-Patriot, and a squadron of SHIELD agents assaulted the Weapon from the East River. SHIELD destroyed the Weapon and overpowered the rest of the Super-Patriot's agents.
The Super-Patriot himself grabbed a US flag and attempted to flee, believing that they wouldn't dare fire at him with the flag in his hands. However, he tripped on the flag and fell off the building to his death (HINT! HINT! IRONY! IRONY!)
Comments: Created by Gary Friedrich and Herb Trimpe.

However, Dum-Dum remembers the conflict with the Super-Patriot, so the whole encounter was not imagined.
