Comments: Created by Joakim Lindegren (who based the character on himself).

Thanks to Fredrik Åberg for informing me of the character and providing initial information. Thanks to Hans Holm for further details about the character. Hans notes "the use of old stuff is more incidental than active gadgetry. It's hard to tell if Kapten Stofil has any superpowers. Several of his adventures are parodies of other genres, including James Bond-movies, Spaghetti Westerns and Tintin-adventures."

CLARIFICATIONS: Not to be confused with
