Canadian Superheroes

In honour of Canada Day, I decided to choose 5 Canadian Superheroes.

#5 Scott Pilgrim

This bass playing, video-gaming, vanquisher of evil exes lives in Toronto.  He had to fight 7 evil exes of the woman he loves, Ramona Flowers.

#4 The Guardian

The Guardian (or Vindicator or Weapon Alpha) is leader of the Canadian Superhero team Alpha Flight.  Can you get a more Canadian name than James “Mac” MacDonald Hudson, Jr.?

#3 Deadpool

Yes, in fact Deadpool is Canadian.  His Marvel bio claims he was born in an “unrevealed location in Canada”.  That is definitely good enough to grab a spot on my list.

#2 Captain CanuckIt’s Captain Canuck.  ‘Nuff said.

#1 Wolverine

You know that the old Canucklehead had to be #1.  Wolverine is one of Marvel’s most popular characters, and proudly he is our Canadian X-Man.

    I couldn’t think of any besides Nelvana.  There seems to be a real void of female Canadian superheroes.

    Ooops… I knew the Guardian was Vindicator, I didn’t realize Heather became Vindicator as well.

    Cant wait to see the movie about Dead Pool! that would be the Sh*t. That’s a movie that you know you don’t wanna miss. Get these group of guys on a hockey team PRONTO.

    I was just looking at The Guardian image and I am wondering if I could use this image for educational purpose?
