Irregular’s Intel – Patriotic Themed Heroes

When I was a kid, it was no big deal to see Captain America anywhere. He wore a version of the Stars and Stripes on his uniform (remember, it was issued to him by the military, so… uniform). He represented the United States, so that was ok. But when I saw Captain Britain, Sunfire or Guardian it threw me for a loop!
