Meet ‘CAPTAIN SWEDEN’ – A Swedish Superhero/Comic

It is known that Sweden and perhaps not even Europe has a superhero or produce comics based on either Swedish or European superheroes, even thought there is concept for some really badasses.

Artist Jörgen Berthage ambition is to change that and animate a Swedish masked superhero. The project seems to have begun in 2012. Via the project’s facebook page, I have learned that Captain Sweden is featured on a list of European Superheroes. And there I found the synopsis, which is the following:


The story is about two brothers, Jonas and Tony Mendez who grow up in Gothenburg, Swedens’ second largest city. Tony Mendez is a Skatepro nicknamed Captain Sweden. One day when the two brothers return to a skatepark they discover a gang beating up another guy. Tony, who is the older brother, interferes and gets stabbed by a gangleader. Later he dies from his injuries. Jonas grows up alone with his mother who goes into a deep depression and gets hospitalized. Jonas decides to become a masked protector for the city . He takes the name of Captain Sweden as a secret honour to his late brother. Captain Sweden was created by Jörgen Berthage and is a current comic-book project.
