Go ahead, call him Captain Hoser, I dare ya! 
Created by writer Ron Leishman and artist/co-writer Richard Comely, the original Captain Canuck first appeared in Captain Canuck #1 (July 1975). The first Captain Canuck patrols Canada in the (then) futuristic world of 1993, where "Canada had become the most powerful country in the world." He was the costumed agent of the Canadian International Security Organization (CISO).

Since the original there have been two newer incarnations of the Canadian icon; the first was set in the then present of 1993, featuring a new Captain Canuck who fought a global conspiracy. In the third incarnation, yet another man adopts the guise of Captain Canuck, to take on a biker gang called the Unholy Avengers.

The character has been in limbo since 2008 when the last mini-series concluded, though some sporadic compelation collections have been published.. (via Wikipedia)
