History: When a disgruntled Montreal cop decides to become the Establishment supervillain known as Frogueman, only one man can stop him. An unnamed individual assembles a costume out of nearby pieces of clothing - a welder's safety goggles, an aviator's helmet, a Saint-Jean-Baptiste sweater, trainers, a watch without hands and a towel for a cape, and becomes the heroic Capitaine Kebec.

Comments: Kebec's admirer Josée went on to become the second Capitaine Kebec.

He is possibly the first French Canadian superhero. He may be part of a long line of CK's.
