I sometimes wonder if a government cape from a place like Sudan or North Korea would be treated as a hero or a villain by the narrative. Would be interesting to explore, no? DC, for what it's worth, has a government-sanctioned (I think) Syrian hero who's a nice guy. Then again, Marvel's U.S. is arguably worse than both of the countries I mentioned, as I outlined in my "How could any moral hero work for the government?" thread.
