Red, White, and Blue
Real Name:
Search for 'Red, White, and Blue' on Amazon


Powers:
Absolutely no special powers to speak of, unless stick-to-it-iveness is a special power.

Bio:
Though three separate people, they were rarely depicted in any other way but as a group. (It did happen on occasion--as perhaps most famously in Comic Cavalcade #11--but not enough to justify giving each character their own separate entry in this database.)

Red was Marine Sergeant Red Dugan. The brains of the group. Expert radioman. Generally the one to propose the plan to take out the bad guy. He's the most handsome of the lot, as well, and clearly the "star".

White was Whitey Smith of the Army. The muscles. Tall and strong, he's nevertheless good-natured and good with the ladies.

Blue was a sailor named, "Blooey". He was the comic relief.

All three hail from Oakville, a small town in a state unspecified. Their stories were somewhat typical of a lot of fiction in the World War II era--a glamorization of wartime service in which even lowly NCOs could make a difference, and have a good time doing it.

There haven't been too many comic characters like Red, White, and Blue since--maybe because military service has rarely been seen as quite so noble since World War II--but the closest post-World War II example in American fiction of a group dynamic like this is probably the trio of Hawkeye/Trapper/Duke in the novel and film, M*A*S*H. And that ain't all that close.
