A fan rendition of Hyperman

Hyperman was a popular comic book hero in the Confederate States during the Second Great War. The Confederate government had created Hyperman in response to a popular U.S. comic book character; while the USA strip had been prohibited under Confederate law, it was nonetheless a very popular series, and copies were actually smuggled across the border. The U.S. series continued to circulate in the C.S. underground throughout the war.

Much like his U.S. counterpart, Hyperman did battle with his country's enemies. He was depicted attacking New York City three times and Philadelphia at least twice.[1]
