Great list if I find any other characters from the UK I will notify you.

I was going to say Darklon a GI Joe character who is a cousin of Destro but his birthplace has not been revealed.

Would Pinhead count? Since Elliot Spencer worked in the British military. That and he does speak with a British accent, due to being played by a British actor.

Night Raven is Canadian & Death's Head is an Alien Robot (sorry)

I could add a lot of character suggestions, but when you start including Beano and Dandy-style humour characters it gets to the stage where you'll probably end up with like 100+ pages!

@silent_bomber: Nooooooooo! Nice catch, man, I'll remove them now. And yeah, I deliberately didn't include Beano and Dandy ones, for that very reason :)

I've been throwing together a list just of British superheroes on Notepad recently, you got a lot more Welsh characters than I did, I can still think of Evans the Fist, Dai Thomas, and another Red Dragon

Evans the Fist was the Welsh leader of the mutant resistance in Strontium Dog (pretty certain all characters in Strontium Dog are from the UK bar Wulf who's Scandinavian).

Dai Thomas is actually in quite a few Marvel UK stories and was one of the Knights of Pendragon.

Red Dragon was from Grant Morrison's Zenith, he was a washed up superhero who's heyday was over, he was talked into cleaning himself up and helping them to fight off a possessed Super-Nazi.

@silent_bomber: WOW. Awesome work, much appreciated! Will add them in now ^_^

Found a few more.

Captain Cymru - an alternate Captain Britain from a world where the Welsh rule.

(there's also a Captain Wales apparently but he never appeared in comics, only novels)

Gog - A guy who was a cook in the Welsh guards during the Falklands who was severely injured and ended up being brainwashed and turned into a Super-Soldier.

@silent_bomber: More?? Oh my gosh and they're Welsh ones, too! Much respect, dude :D

This is probably the last post I'm going to bother you with LOL

---------------------------------------

One correction Stinger is not English, she's Welsh

This dude Dafydd Ap Iowerth, is also Welsh, he's from Doctor Strange stories apparently.

-----------------------------------

That's enough for a Welsh Justice League, and with SuperTed leading them they can't go wrong!

  • SuperTed - Leader
  • Evans the Fist - Second in Command (experienced general)
  • Red Dragon, Red Dragon (Gareth), and Red Dragon (Siadwell) (that could get confusing)
  • Stinger
  • Gog
  • Dai Thomas
  • Monkey Wrench
  • Pixie
  • Dafydd
  • Ivor the Engine (Transportation)

They ride around Wales in Ivor the Engine solving mysteries and fighting crime.

-------------------------------------------

EDIT: found another one LOL

@silent_bomber: So many corrections. I just don't know what to believe on this site anymore! XD

My word though, that team is amazing. Led by Superted, the coolest guy on the entire CV wiki?? (not biased at all...) Riding around in Ivor?? I'm squealing over here! Heck, I read it out to my mum and she loved it almost as much as I did ^_^

They won't have much to do though I fear. Not a lot of active super-villains in Wales.

Evans the Fist would probably shoot Tex dead during their first encounter, and without Tex, Skeleton will most likely give up his life of crime and become a Fashion Designer or something.

I guess they could do what Batman does and build a revolving-door prison to keep them busy. SuperTed would also have to keep a close eye on Evans though, maybe even confiscate his gun.

Welsh Bad Guy! Dai Spy, unsurprisingly not on Comicvine
