    He didn't seem the type to have a green thumb, despite the ring and all. If he counts, I'm going with Guy too. Otherwise Rikki Barnes/alternate Bucky.

    I'm a US Agent fan, I know, he was Cap for a little while, but it's his time as US Agent that won me over

    I used to maintain an annual list of "Flagsuit characters" -- meaning people whose costumes had a clear debt to the U.S. Flag. Looking back, I see that in The Master List of Flagsuit Characters (Fourth Draft), I asserted I had identified 249 of them. And that was counting each "role" just once. (For instance, "Captain America (Marvel)" was only one item on my list, instead of my offering separate listings for Steve Rogers and for everyone else who ever wore the exact same flagsuit while using the same codename.)

    Looking back on it now, I see that "American Eagle" seems to be the most popular flagsuit alias on my list -- four different companies have used it for heroes who wore a red-white-and-blue outfit.

    America Chavez! #1

    Although she's not on the list.

    So favorite on the list is Liberty Belle.

    Also not on the list love to hate The Comedian.
