The All-American

There is conflicting information about the All-American. One report has him being killed by a sniper's bullet in the Korean War as mentioned in the 2004 Visitor's Guide, while Elliot Mills mentions that the All-American along with the Lamplighter had just retired in 1959. That suggests the possibility that someone else, possibly a grown-up Slugger, donned the costume and assumed the role of the All-American for a handful of years following Appleton, the original All-American's death.


There is a possible link between the All-American and Slugger being involved in the the Commando K Project and U.S. Government covert operations.
