|I think it's the Popeye forearms that really sell|
He fights Nazis and neo-Nazis, including a clone of Adolf Hitler in a peaked hood who went by the name "Hate-Monger."
His mythos can, at times, make one deeply uncomfortable but, really, most of it pales in comparison to the Femizons. Appearing in the early 90s (*shakes fist at 90s Marvel, again*), they were a group of female superheroes and supervillains lead by Superia, sometimes know as Mother Superia, and were dedicated to wiping our subjugating all men and making the world into a global matriarchy.
|It takes a daring woman to wear|
a costume that literally
highlight her crotch like this.
(This is Mother Superia)
Wanting to track down the woman who'd turned her into a man-hater, she naturally donned a leotard and chased off into the desert after her, eventually allying with Cap and some of his hanger's on who fought Superia, Count Zemo and a few others before bringing this painful, painful chapter in Cap's history to its merciful end.
Aside from her problematic origins, Free Spirit's kind of a cool character - nearly the physical equal of Captain America, she fits nicely into a protege role, but currently the Marvel Universe doesn't really seem to have room for her.
In building the character, I was torn between the desire to ignore her dumb and gross origin story, but eventually decided that it actually gave her an interesting flavour. I think this is a pretty capable character, and a good PP generator, although I would not suggest that she be brought into conflict with, say, Purple Man.
