The good Colonel is meant to be a satire of many overtly or subtly patriotic superheroes *here*. As such, he has elements of Captain Britain/Captain Marvel (his origin), Captain America (his pre-1980s adventure), Superman (the character`s creation`s background) and GI jOEs (the turn of the century era).
General Malice`s tendency to change nationality is based mostly of Captain America`s main foe: the Red Skull. He was originaly a Nazi mastermind but after WW2, he inexplicably became a Communist saboteur only to switched back in the late 60s. It was later retconed that they were actualy 2 different characters but a cynical man as myself suspect it was just a case of keeping a good vilain going.

- And that's a bad thing? ;-) Depending on the socio-economic status of the creators of the Good Colonel (surely not two Jewish boys) and apparent high level of illiteracy, you might want to make intentional grammatical errors in the actual quotes from the Good Colonel's adventures. Early comic books *here8 are rife with spelling mistakes. General Malice should find a Koshschei (sp?) Cube.Theophilus88
