Origin

Johnny Canuck, a Captain in the Allied air forces, is Canada's answer to Nazi oppression, operating like a freelance agent. He is also referred to as "Canada's super hero."

Johnny Canuck was tall and strong but had no super powers. Instead, the fearless air-force captain had a strong right hook and freelanced as an agent for democracy.

He once met Adolf Hitler and almost single-handedly ended the war.

Notes

  • In 1995, Canada Post issued a series of Canadian postage stamps celebrating Canada’s comic-book superheroes. Johnny Canuck is depicted as he appeared in the comic books, dressed in flight jacket, goggles, leather headgear and boots. Johnny Canuck is linked to a tradition of stalwart, honest, upstanding Canadian heroes.
  • An obituary for Johnny Canuck dated April 14, 1978 (published by St. Catharines Standard and done as though the character had been a real-life hero), stated he and Wing had been married in May, 1967.
