Stripesy
Real Name: Pat Dugan
Search for 'Stripesy' on Amazon


Bio:
An automechanic who happened to be watching a movie when Nazi agents created a scene. He resisted with great skill and force, finding himself fighting alongside a teenaged kid named Sylvester Pemberton. When, later, the kid showed up at his garage, they both overheard a customer wish aloud for a an American flag to come to life and battle Nazi agents.

Recalling earlier events, Dugan was inspired to create a uniform and take on the name "Stripesy". He went out on an adventure alone--only to soon find himself captured by Nazi agents. He was thrust into captivity with another American-themed hero, calling himself "The Star-Spangled Kid". It didn't take long for Dugan to realize this was the very same kid he'd fought alongside with in the movie theatre. He reluctantly agreed to team up with the kid from then on.

Oddly, he was the "junior" member, the sidekick, of the team--despite being significantly older. This may have been due to classism, as he was definitely lower class and Pemberton was from an extremely upper class family. Indeed, Dugan became the Pemberton family chauffeur soon after teaming with the Kid.

As a middle-aged man, he would retire as Stripesy, marry the mother of Courtney Whitmore, and lose a lot of what had made him heroic earlier in his life. Courtney, in particular, had many issues with him, and still treated him with great suspicion, even after she found the Star-Spangled Kid's costume in Dugan's room and became the Star-Spangled Kid (II). He, meanwhile, resigned himself to being a sidekick to a kid yet again and became S.T.R.I.P.E., in part to make up for the many ways in which he'd failed Whitmore as a step-father.
