History: America Man is one of the A-Men, a group of American heroes who felt their home country had rejected them and so tried to move to Australia. However the Australian government objected to this ignoring of immigration rules, and sent the Southern Squadron to the outback, where the A-Men had landed, to send them on their way. Deciding Australia was not for them either, the A-Men set off to try their luck in New Zealand.
America Man himself is one of the patriotic sentinel of justice types that you can move for tripping over in the U.S.A. Staunchly proud of his homeland, his belt buckle even contains a tape player that pumps out the Star Spangled Banner during combat.
Powers/Abilities: America Man is stronger and faster than normal humans. His strength increases whenever he hears a patriotic, all-American song, as his chest swells with pride upon listening to same.
Comments: Created by David DeVries and Gary Chaloner.
In case you haven't realised America Man is a parody of the Captain America / Shield / etc, type hero.
