A to Z Challenge – SUPER cross stitch

U is for Union Jack

Union Jack is from weelittlestitches’ superhero alphabet sampler.

I knew nothing about Union Jack before I started stitching him, but I found out he (the first incarnation) actually appeared in Captain America: The First Avenger (not utilizing the Union Jack identity).

Union Jack is a superhero that has had three incarnations: two of which were from the Falsworth bloodline, James Montgomery and his son Brian, and the current incarnation named Joseph Chapman.

James is a superb athlete with expert hand-to-hand combat skills, espionage training, and he is pretty handy with a handgun and a dagger. Brian has the ability to project bolts of magical lightning along with supreme athleticism and hand-to-hand combat expertise.

Joseph is highly skilled with a knife and handgun, and he’s a skilled martial artist and hand-to-hand combatant with mystically enhanced strength, speed, and endurance.

In Captain America: The First Avenger, James Montgomery Falsworth is a member of an elite special unit of Allied soldiers formed in World War II known as the Howling Commandos. His name and alias is actually the name of the British super soldier from WWI.

Ultragirl is from fangirl stitches’ girl power superhero comic book alphabet.

I knew nothing about Ultragirl before I started stitching her – Marvel? DC? I didn’t know!

Ultragirl is a Kree superhero in the Marvel universe. Ultragirl is Suzanna “Suzy” Sherman, derived from her Kree name Tsu-Zana.

A mutant Kree or possibly Kree-human hybrid, she has superhuman strength, reflexes, stamina, durability, healing factor and can fly and see full-spectrum energy patterns.

She was actually an inspiring model until she unexpectedly grew inches taller, acquired the body type of the average bodybuilder, and developed superpowers. Mourning her future modeling career, Suzy began to envision using her Ultragirl persona as her ticket to fame and stardom.

You completely stumped me on Ultra Girl. I had never heard of her before. Union Jack I had at least heard of.
