Real Name: Unknown
Identity/Class: Extradimensional (Ultraverse) human mutate
Group Membership: None
Affiliations: None (possibly female autograph hunters)
Enemies: Purse snatchers
Known Relatives: None
Base of Operations: New York, U.S.A.
First Appearance: Warstrike#4 (August, 1994)
Powers/Abilities: Captain USA had powerful musculature, displaying athlete
to peak human strength. His running speed was about enhanced human. He spoke like a cartoon superhero and seemed a tad vain, being easily distracted by female autograph hunters. He wore a garish nationalist/patriot costume stylized after the colors and symbols of the U.S. flag.
Frank and Nathaniel, out with their respective dates, Shelby and Cindy, on a main street in New York City, were interrupted by a purse-snatching youth who ran off with Cindy's purse. Frank and Nathaniel gave chase, but were suddenly overtaken by the speeding and muscular form of Captain USA. He stopped, issued a bold warning, then gave chase, easily and quickly capturing the young thief, who dropped the purse. Holding the purse snatcher aloft, Captain USA returned the purse to Nathaniel.
However, a small crowd was starting to gather around Captain USA (including Alec Swan, aka Firearm), who then proceeded to sign autographs and pose for pictures. It would seem that the purse snatcher managed to slip away in the commotion.
