Just out of curiousity, why is it labelled as "Scotland's First Superhero"?

HI there,

I know, it has caused some controversy! There are several answers! Saltire is the main character in the series, not a side character. This is a graphic novel series. Previous Scottish characters although fantastic and well written, tend to be side characters in an already popular group setting, or has been in a small comic strip or mini series. If you don't like any of those answers-

Chronologically he was created in prehistory, so therefore as a time reference, he was the first! :)

We feel this is the first time a Scottish character has been celebrated as a lead and as the main purpose for a graphic novel series. However, there has been heated debate! :) The knowledge of Scottish characters has been impressive! We do feel you have to think carefully when trying to think of a great Scottish superhero- that is something we intend to fix. So when you think of Scottish superhero, you think Saltire immediately!

Feel free to enter and if you win-you can decide for yourself!

Thanks for the chat though! :)
