History: Like his fellow superhumans, Public Spirit's powers derive from genetic engineering done to him by the U.S. army. Arguably the most powerful superhuman in the world, he is also somewhat corrupt. After his first fiance, the superheroine Virago, was killed, he was sent on a mission into space. Returning, he became engaged to another superheroine, Celeste. When strippers dressed as Celeste were murdered by the serial killer Sleepman, the investigating officer, Marshal Law, suspected that Public Spirit might be the guilty party.

Comments: Created by Pat Mills and Kevin O'Neill. He is a parody of Superman, but also based on Ronald Reagan.
