Batman and Union Jack



I've always liked the look of Union Jack.  I first encountered the character during the classic run of Captain America by Roger Stern and John Byrne.  He seemed cool to me so I checked out his adventures as part of the Invaders as well.  Comic characters with costumes based off of a flag motif are pretty common, but I think that Union Jack's is the most successful.  It is at once patriotic, intimidating and utilitarian.

Dave sez,

Very cool cover!

As a fan of Roy Thomas' The Invaders, Union Jack is a really cool character. Union Jack, Spitfire and Baron Blood were my favorites from that book.

One of the reasons why I enjoy your blog is I would love to see The Invaders and the JSA or All-Star Squadron team-up...

Very cool! You might want to reread Jack's speech bubble, though.

I've liked Union Jack since the Invaders. I also likd how they have retconed him into Marvel's WWII history. Too bad they didn't put him in the Captain America movie.
