    Default Non-US Superheroes (or comics set in a non-US, but "Earthly" locale)

    I know that there are plenty of superheroes that aren't from the US, but it does seem the US dominates. Are there any comics that are focused on a hero in a different country?

    I recently read 45, which I really enjoyed (though it was a bit of a stretch as a "comic"), and thought it'd be cool to have more heroes throughout the world to read about.

    Isn't Kish the movie about an indian superhero? Wonder Woman is also not from the US.

    Also check out the movie above. I did not see it but Marko Zaror is awesome.

    Anybody remember U.N. Force?







    Also, there were several Marvel U.K. books in the late 1980's / early 1990's like Knights of Pendragon, Death's Head, Hell's Angel / Dark Angel, etc.

    He's not as famous as Wolverine, but the Red Panda is billed as "Canada's Greatest Super Hero," and is based in WWII-era Toronto. "Mask of the Red Panda" is an excellent digital mini-series from Monkeybrain Comics, spun off from the equally excellent "Red Panda Adventures" audio drama from Decoder Ring Theatre.

    They Stand on Guard is an entire blog focused exclusively on Canadian super heroes (Captain Canuck, The Leaf, Alpha Flight, etc).
