Response @ smeagol: Exactly! There have been attempts to create UK-based super heroes but they tend to fall into one of two camps - either they're spoofs (like "Superman: True Brit") or they're essentially US-style heroes draped in the Union Flag (e.g. Captain Britain). Okay, three camps - there are also the "oh so quaint" Shining Knight and Beafeater types. I think DC must have held its weekly editorial meeting in a Mediaeval theme-restaurant when they came up with those!

For my money, none of them seem as if they were really born and bred in the UK or think and act in the way that a real Brit might ... (for better or worse!) But you don't have to go searching in comic shops for them - "Shades" is going to bring them to you! ;-)
