I think of it as his ballet dancer outfit, actually.

Am I the only one who can recognise that it's a jolly good outfit?

He don't need no stinking keys! He's Captain Britain!

Our national symbol deserves more respect, I feel...

Perhaps that's true . . . in a different outfit.

Perhaps if we gave him a shield with a big Union Jack on it?

Why not a belt (pouches optional) and some gloves? (Helmet would be nice, too, but not necessary.)

What exactly do heroes keep in all those belt pouches? Sandwiches? A few Archie digests for whiling away the long rooftop patrols?

A clean change of underwear? Bat-shark repellant?

By the way, has there been a Lieutenant Scotland (or anything similar)? Maybe a Suzy Scotland?

Nope. There is a distinct lack of Scots superheroes.

Captain Clyde, written and drawn by Grant Morrison, is the only Scottish superhero I can think of, and I don't think his costume was flag-based.

I vaguely remember Captain Clyde. Or rather, seeing chunks of it in some Morrison retrospective. Fairly primitive stuff, as I recall.

Y'know, come to think of it, Wolfsbane (who had been part of Marvel's New Mutants) was Scottish, wasn't she?
