Inversion as Delight-A USAgent Gallery!!!

Hey folks!  Unfortunately, Angel Hayes is running into technical issues, and she can’t get her great article on Starman up!  But keep your eyes peeled here over the next few days for it, and in the meantime, enjoy a gallery of one of my favorite heroes of the 90’s USAgent!

USAgent started out as a hero called the Super-Patriot, who got his powers from the Power Broker.  He goads Captain America into fighting him, and eventually replaces the Cap for a period of time!  When Steve Rogers comes back to being Captain America, John Walker sticks around as USAgent, doing work for the Commission on Super-Human Activities, joining the Avengers, joining Force Works, and eventually hunting down the Thunderbolts.

I first saw the guy when I started collecting the Marvel cards that were very popular in the 90’s.  I loved him instantly.  I loved his Captain America knock-off costume (which had actually been worn by Steve Rogers during the time that John Walker was Captain America), I loved that he had his own shield, and when I got to read some Avengers West Coast, I loved his attitude.  He and Guy Gardner remind me a lot of one another, in that they are jerks who aren’t evil who got superpowers.  The superhero world makes it easy for us to forget that in the real world, many folks are jerks who are not evil.  It’s fun to watch USAgent talk with his (at least in their eyes) morally superior teammates.

Enjoy this Gallery of USAgent pics, and be here when Starman heads your way, and don’t forget Super Blog Team-Up a week from Wednesday!

    1. I was a fan of the concept, but I never felt it was well-executed. I also did not care for that USAgent costume, although it looked good on the 1995 card I posted.
