Captain Sweden was a character from a puzzle that featured nine superheroes from around the world dressed in costumes based on flags from different countries. All the characters that appeared had names with Captain and you had to figure out what country they belonged with as the second part of the name.

Here is a little insight on what the comic series "Fun and Games" was about. In the 1970's Marvel published a series of crossword and other types of puzzle and fitness books featuring characters from their comics such as Spider Man and the fantastic Four. In 1977 a black and white paper back series ( I believe 5 were produced) with the name Stan Lee Presents: The Mighty Marvel Superheroes Fun Book was published and on the front cover it had a caption saying "all you need is a pencil" This book was 128 pages long and contained games, riddles ,puzzles, mazes and surprises and proved to be a moderate success. Skipping ahead a few years to 1979, Stan Lee was approached by his long time friend and comic book artist Owen McCarron who sold him the idea of doing an ongoing series featuring puzzles and other activities geared towards children and young adults and featured characters from the "Marvel Universe". Owen McCarron had experience creating puzzles since and had a weekly fun page printed in his local newspaper the Halifax Herald Limited. This too was called "Fun and Games" and was a success having been produced for three decades. Owen McCarron had also worked in the comic book industry and was considered Stan Lee's go to guy for quickly getting art projects that needed to be finished completed in an emergency. This full color monthly series lasted for 13 issues until it was canceled.
