Shatner counts. He is, after all, James Tiberius Kirk, T.J. Hooker and General Mortars from LOADED WEAPON 1.

A true inspiration for every Canadian child. Especially if they have thinning hair and gigantic egos.

Does Canada have heroes?
The Shat? Captain Canada? Wolverine? Tricia Helfer?
Red Green? Brent Butt? Loverboy? Joey Votto?

You could combine all of those people into a giant, Canadian Avengers team, and I would still take Captain America over them any day.

...as a nation they mostly worship beer and back bacon...a truly enlightened people.

They do appear to have a few superheroes:

The McKenzie Brothers also appeared by video during the Snakes and Arrows Tour. They introduced The Larger Bowl.

While on the subject of Great Canadian Heroes, let's not forget The Trailer Park Boys.

Re: All I Got Left is My THREAD BOMBS!

How about the Kids in the Hall? I always thought that this would make for an acceptable Canadian anthem:



Heck, to some Americans it already is Canada's anthem.
