This page is for the several different characters know as Americomando.

For the original Americommando, Tex Thompson, go here.

Americommandos

As another names in the DC comics lore, as Manhunter or Starman, Americomando is a name held by several characters unrelated among themselves. All of them however (except Tex Thompson), share the characteristic of being a parody-homage to Marvel's Captain America.

First Commando

In Freedom Fighters #7 (March 1977), the villainous Silver Ghost poses as a fictional Americommando, leader of the Crusaders (a parody of Captain and the Invaders). This version of the character was the inspiration for the Earth-8 version and the modern Freedom Fighters villain.

Thy Kingdom Come

In Kingdom Come, an Americommando appears as a minor villain. After the destruction of , Americommando, along with Braintrust and the Minutemen, attempt to stop all immigration to the USA, by extreme measures. He and his team are stopped by Superman and the Justice League. He was described as “Captain America as if he were designed by Rob Liefeld” by Kingdom Come creators.

Agent of SHADE

In Uncle Sam and the Freedom Fighters, a new Americommando appears as an agent of S.H.A.D.E. and its field leader. He kills his own speedster, Spin Doctor, for talking back to him. This version was more close to the previous incarnation who also fight the Freedom fighters first series, but with strong elements of Ultimate Captain America.

Countdown: President Americommando

In Lord Havok and the Extremists #1-6, the Earth-8 version of Americommando is not only the leader of a group called the Meta-Militia, an analogue of the Avengers/SHIELD, but also is President of the United States of Angor, with most of their teamates a his cabinet. He made a deal with Monarch to defeat Lord Havok but the treason of former ally Bluejay and the secret plot of Havok ended with most of the Meta Militia killed and Americommando under arrest for crimes against humanity and deposed of his position. This version was more morally dark than their predecessors, by enjoying killing his opponents, or having an affair with the wife of his best friend Bluejay without any guilt.
