The National Force seen in Captain Marvel X#8 (October, 2016) wore the costumes of Grand Director's National Force from Captain America I#231-237, but worked with a character that looked more like the Hate-Monger from the Punisher War Journal II#6-10 storyline. Maybe the Arizona-based Hate-Monger returned from the dead after Secret Wars III and put together another National Force. Maybe a Symkarian nationalist put together his own version of the National Force. Maybe agents adjacent to a worldwide terrorist organization like Hydra put together this group to destabilize Symkaria. We don't know! It was a one panel appearance and to be honest it made absolutely no sense that they would cause trouble in a European nation because the previous versions of the National Force were only interested in the US for different reasons, but they were racist and nationalist in one or another way.
