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.
