History: As World War II spreads, scientist Allan Bruce perfects his chronopticon, allowing him to contact American patriots in the far future and implore their aid, contacting an era when everyone had superpowers. The future president agrees to send one man back to assist, a patriot with muscles like steel and a desire for adventure, who becomes Super-American. When Tyrannus and his Fifth columnists march on Washington and seize control of Congress and the White House, Super-American swiftly stops their coup and the all-out foreign invasion it was making way for.

Comments: Created by Dan Zolnerowich. Super-American appeared in Fight Comics #15-18; however, decades later he was revived as part of Dynamite's Project Superpowers alongside a myriad of other now-public domain Golden Age characters, appearing in Project Superpowers, Project Superpowers Chapter 2, and the Black Terror spin-off series.
