[edit] History

He and Slugger were active in the European theater of World War II. [edit] Powers

As a result of scientific alteration, his body is at the very peak of athleticism [edit] Speculations, Observations and Theories:

There is conflicting information about the All-American. One report has him being killed by a sniper's bullet in the Korean War. Elliot Mills mentions that the All-American along with the Lamplighter had just retired in 1959.

One possibility is that someone else, possibly a grown-up Slugger, took over the costume for several years after Appleton was killed.

There also could be some link between the All-American, Slugger, Commando K/Commando K Project/U.S. Government involvement which would show how all these are related, if at all besides what has already been established. [edit] Timelines of Interest
