Superhero countdown to Independence Day

The Spirit of '76 (real name William Naslund) is a fictional comic bookcharacter appearing in books published by Marvel Comics. Created by writer Roy Thomas and artist Frank Robbins as part of a World War II-era superhero team, the Crusaders, and patterned on the DC Comics group the Freedom Fighters, the character first appeared in The Invaders#14 (March 1977). The Spirit of '76 was the equivalent of Freedom Fighters member Uncle Sam, originally a Quality Comics character.[1] In the stories, the character briefly assumed the role of Captain America after the original - Steve Rogers - was presumed dead. However, he was killed in action.
