(Hey - wasn't that DC's Unknown Soldier's schtick?)
The good Captain passing himself off as The Ghost Who Walks - aka The Phantom!
The good Captain pretending to be the King of the Seven Seas now - Aquaman!
Things have changed little since those good ol' innocent days - the good Captain's arch-foe was a dead ringer for... Osama Bin Laden? (Or OBM is a Dr. Evil clone...? "Dr. Evil" -? Hmm... Any relation to the silly Austin Powers foil? Guess not...)
AHH - FINALLY - THE TRUE CAPTAIN;
in all of his bland 1984ish glory! ;)
(No finer Captain
has been seen since...
Captain Nemo perhaps?)
... but we digress!
(Nota Bene: in order to remedy to that, surely, the good Captain kept dressing up as other more, ah, charismatic heroes for the whole time that his ephemeral tenure lasted... shall we say? I do believe that his other "borrowed roles" were, in no particular order: Superman, Batman, Captain America, Zorro and maybe even Lone Ranger and Tarzan...? No - skip that last one! Although it would have been tremendously easy to fill the requirements of the role, Tarzan properties probably asked for too much moolah for Cheetah...! Same goes for Zorro properties! Instead, there is an astronaut role there - I cannot tell which one that is; but it could not be Matt Mason, I imagine; he was the competition! Maybe Buck Rogers? And there was an army man there too - Sgt. Fury or the better man, Sgt. Rock; either way, you get your cannon fodder! ;)
Oh - there is another blond guy there too; Brick Bradford, could it be?
... er... wrong Bradfords found!
Aquaman's near twin bro! From that damnable "surface world" - but still!
With hindsight, and its 20/20 tainted glasses, one can be fairly perplexed though that the easiest disguises of all were not included here, at all: Spider-Man and Snake-Eyes!)
Ah - a close-up, Mr. De Mille! :)
Yes - Captain Action was, in fact, a very sad man in his private life - not gay at all! ;)
Hmm... He actually looks like
some character-actor time has forgotten
that we used to see on TV aaaall the time -
but not anymore.
Not since circa 1979 I'd say!
You didn't see this guy hang out with Barbies like all those inane G.I. Joes would do, "after (playtime) hours" - no sir you wouldn't!
