History: (Alpha Flight I#78) - Captain Forsa was made aware of recent killings among the superhuman population of South America, and in a briefing with reporters, he declared that he had no fear, and that whoever was responsible would face his wrath. A female reporter questioned him on how he would know the killer's motives, but he remained confident that he would discover them.

    At his hotel room, Captain Forsa found the reporter waiting for him, and informed her that he was just married. She handed him a photograph of himself lying dead on the floor. The reporter then turned into Zeitgeist, and Captain Forsa lunged at him, but Zeitgeist disappeared, then reappeared and stabbed him through the chest. Zeitgeist then used his camera to take a picture of Captain Forsa's death.

(Captain America I#442 - BTS) - Captain Forsa's murder was investigated by members of the Schutz-Heiligruppe





Comments: Created by James D. Hudnall, John Calimee and Mike Manley.

    Captain Forsa was called "Captain Forza" in Captain America I#442. This is how his name would be spelled in Spainish.

    If I'm interpreting correctly, his name means "Captain Strength."

    Cisco has some comments on the spelling of his name: "The word in Portuguese is "Força", replacing the 's' with a cedilla 'c'. "Forsa" is how it would sound, but it's also one of the most god-awful typos in the history of the Portuguese language."
