I think the best part is the tiny bird shades.
I don't care about all the other US aspects, but the artist didn't forget about the eagle. +1 points.
I get that it's trying to be stereotypically "American"...but what's with the cigar? I wasn't aware that Americans were seen as heavy smokers, or heavier smokers than most other countries.

Maybe it's a blunt? *kidding*

Three examples, two of which are fictional, do not a stereotype make. There's roughly fifty nations in the world that have more smokers per capita than the US, including China and Japan.

Oh well. Just surprised at the stereotype is all.
I like that particular stereotype tho. Almost makes me wanna become 'murican...

I think I would regret letting go of free health care, paid education, 6 weeks of vacation a year by law, full salary when home and sick and so on though.
A friendly note: That is not how you hold an eagle (or other large birds), claws of those featherbuckets will go right through your clothes and dig into the skin. Trust me, that's painful.
Unless you're a battleship with at least 19cm worth of armor. Remember human kids, don't do that at home.

Wolverine was born in Canada. Sorry.

I know this (former Comic book collector), but The X-Men are based in the U.S. and Logan was/is a member of them. :)

My use of those three were to simplify your thinking of the situation, the Eagle, the U.S. flag & the Cigar are symbolic of "Power" (Gen. Patton was a heavy hitter of WWII, Col. Smith was a shining knight for the common people & Logan just did what needed to be done, even if it wasn't pretty or it was labeled as taboo).
I just don't see it representing anything more that that imho.

"He did what needed to be done" is the lamest excuse ever invented.
