Fighting Evil With Good Old American Fists

Still fleshing out my golden age hero roster for the New Punverse. Captain Battle seems like an obvious addition and is a great Nick Fury analog, especially considering how similar they look. Also, this entry is the first mention of my S.H.I.E.L.D. clone. I know acronym is bad, but it'll do for now.

Captain John Battle was born into wealth and luxury. However, that didn't stop him from enlisting in World War I and fighting for what he thought was right. Battle was wounded in action and came home a changed man. He decided to use his vast resources to stop another great war from happening. Despite the efforts he put in to stop warmongers, World War II still happened. Battle re-enlisted into the army and was placed in charge of a new special joint military group, made up for Allied Nation heroes, the Freedom Squadron. He proved an effective leader throughout the war. The original John Battle's consciousness was transferred to an advanced android before his body passed away.  Additionally, his son, William Battle, currently serves as the head of A.N.T.H.E.M. (Allied Nations Heroic Earth Military).
