    A respect thread for the Champion of the United Kingdom is long overdue! Union Jack is one of the coolest, most underrated and underexposed characters out there, so I've taken it upon myself to regale you with scans of some of his feats, enjoy!

    Also, please forgive the fact that most of the scans are in spanish, only way I could find them.

    First off: Low level Superhuman strength (1-5 tons)

    Is thrown across gallery by Baron Blood, then promptly crushed with a huge statue by the Baron's unnatural strength causing him to smash through the floor and crash on a dinosaur's bones, yet receives NO damage whatsoever. Keep in mind, this exact same attack (substitute statue for boulder) rendered the original Union Jack a cripple.

    ... yet that doesn't stop him from intimidating Zaran into submission despite him having the upper hand. He kept fighting superpowered villains with that stab wound all day, too, showing it doesn't faze him in the least.

    Most impressive: Union Jack has jumped from an exploding air vehicle onto Sabra's back in midair. There he deflects both a bullet and a grenade using only a 6-inch silver dagger in a single motion. Then he takes out Oddball, seemingly cutting his throath or face. Showcasing superhuman reflexes, senses (to perceive the bullet in time) and expert skill in the use of the dagger
