Major Mapleleaf (Marvel)(01 - Louis Sadler)
Real Name: Louis Sadler
Search for 'Major Mapleleaf (Marvel)(01 - Louis Sadler)' on Amazon

Major Mapleleaf has an unspecified degree of super-strength. He retained these powers for over 50 years, although they did not keep him completely youthful.

Louis Sadler was a Canadian superhero during World War II, and the occasional ally of the Invaders in their battles against Hitler and the Nazis. He gained his powers through an unrevealed process which appears to have retarded his aging process. After the war, he went underground in his crime fighting and eventually revealed his public identity in 1963 to devote time to raising his son, Michael, his proudest achievement. Eventually however, Michael, who was gay, contracted HIV and died of AIDS. Louis went into a deep depression. Michael had always been Sadler's favorite of the two children.

While Louis Sr. was made to appear to have been physically and mentally abusive with his younger son, Louis Sadler Jr., appearances can be deceiving. This belief is based upon Louis Jr.'s memory of a childhood incident in which both he and his older brother were caught in their father's room going through things they had been told to stay out of. Their father, a war-hero of strong values, was not pleased.
