    I like the eagle.

    Hopefully someone that will make appearances in the future.

    Though he is something of a dick of a bird. It's not surprising that he's not picked up the scent though, the real Sam is probably a long way from there. Still, providing some entertainment is always a bonus.

    When was the last time you visited the waking world, bird-brain? My guess would be he can smell the exhaust fumes of the cars with untainted nostrils.

    The inspiring 'sqwark' of a typical Bald Eagle? That's right, folks. They overdub the far more impressive-sounding cry of a Red-tailed Hawk over in films and TV, because Reality Is Unrealistic...

    Oh, right, he's a zeitgeist of the American Eagle, not the real thing. So he probably would sound like people imagine it to. And knows the history of 'Vinland' about as well.

    Also something of an illusion people believe. 'Old places stank of shit' and the like? Probably not all that accurate. Horse droppings? Maybe. Human droppings, not so much...

    One thing old paintings, photographs and films can't capture: The smell of people en-masse.

    Sure you'd want to eat meat that might be poisonous?

    Thankfully, OL isn't that kind of Humanitarian.

    Bird-boy gets fed either way, so no fluff off his beak.

    Can't call him Sam, that'd get too confusing. How about Roger?

    Well, that's two data points about the present Uncle Sam being 'fake'. If he can get three, that takes it from Coincidence to Enemy Action.

    Well, shit. At least no-one's been hearing their distinct commentary on Modern America.

    Don't worry, OL. I doubt this will ever displace 'Cake-Man' as a nickname in the American public's consciousness...

    :( Dangit, OL, why'd you have to remind us about Teekl?

    I think most of them are waiting for something to explode. That also seems to be a common occurrence around you.

    ...I'd be more worried if any of them could.

    Complete with your choice of dubbed voice!

    I don't think you're going to turn OL into a red-blooded American guy...

    Would you like one? I'm sure OL could fabricate something that'd fit.

    Ah, looking to consult with a certain ex-pat embodiment?

    If you were about to say 'Japan', I would ask whether Roger there would cease to exist corporeally if you left the bounds of American territory...

    Living up to the average American, then? ... :D I kid, I kid.

    Well, who put you onto this sub-plot, OL? Plus, you can check on how Susano-o-no-mikoto is going with Shazam...

    ...Consider who you're talking to, OL. Just because she moved overseas, doesn't mean she stopped being American.

    Pfft. She got the job she wants, not the job she could get.

    ...Eh. The American idea probably isn't really a good fit with the Japanese national character.

    And I'm not sure if that's going to piss anyone off. So let's agree not to argue?

    Chicken, please. His soul is a snake. Your argument is invalid.

    Well, if you made a mess, you'll be cleaning it up, Roger.

    That depends on which one you find.

    Man, what are people gonna think when they see this on the 'Tubes? I can't help but imagine some of the Leaguers are going to end up laughing their arse off when they watch it. And in Plastic Man's case, I mean that literally. The rest will probably just be confused as hell, even after they read OL's report. And it is going to be a doozy, I bet.

    Yes, those paintings of people in the past may be beautiful but if you ended up in that period then you're stuck in a time where people didn't bathe as much.

    Hrs a spirit animal, so he should be fine.

    Because he's an evil cat killer.

    I'm still imagining him sounding like Norm MacDonald.

    I gotta wonder what the process for that is and if there is a magical process then does it involve replacing his blood.

    Lady Liberty seems to be able to, so he may also be able.

    I lol'ed.

    Nice to see the snake soul form being utilized here. I'm down for a sophont animal team up in the future if it's in the cards.
    Also a little bit of irony with an eagle being scared by a snake, their usual prey.

    There has to be some fan-site or blog that follows OL and the various heroes, and depending on whether the people following Paul and Eagle are recording them talk, because nothing gets attention then a weird/'controversial' hero like OL walking through Washington with a giant Eagle looking for Uncle Sam. Or that the personification of Lady Liberty exists and left America to join the Japanese pantheon.

    Depending on how far things escalate Paul might wind up doing another talk show visit to explain why he was in Washington because a fake Uncle Sam was possibly influencing the officials who guide the nation's future.

    Yeah don't mind baldy he's a bit out of touch.

    "Wait you can understand what he's saying?"

    Of course I can understand him after all...

    <Don't you say it!>

    Bird is the word.

    Sadly, I think there's some flaw present, because taking a look at this I see that even episode 1 chapter 1 doesn't capture correctly (it skips almost all of chapter 1 and jumps straight to chapter 2 after a few sentences)

    We talk about “fish” (which, cladistically, do not exist, there is no monophyletic group of “fish” that simultaneously includes all organisms we understand to be “fish”-like while also excluding, say, whales) because, despite the utter fiction that is fish, it’s still a useful label when we talk about certain features that “fish” tend to have in common.

    Can’t wait for the Eagle to tear someone’s face off and learn it’s an Apokolitian infiltrator bot but its not the President all because of The SI accidental political snafu years ago.

    Very clearly a view of America from Modern America. And to think, if Ben Franklin had his way that eagle would be a turkey.

    Is it really any worse than being Cake Man?

    Ah, the mood of anyone who had a coworker slacking for far too long.

    And RIP the memory of poor Teekl. I hope Teekl's wolf child is doing well.

    The funny thing?

    Zoat was, though likely unintentionally, actually right about this.

    Because the Eagle as a symbol of Freedom actually originated from the Native American's. So yes, he would have been here long before the European's arrived and probably did greet their ships with open wings.

    I did not know that! I knew about the Haudenosaunee Confederacy and that eagle feathers were important but that escaped me.

    Zoat, was that intentional?

    also my friends still want to know what entity you made a pact with to write this. Was it the Ophidion?

    No, that's wasn't intentional by me. It might have been intentional by the people who picked the bald eagle as the national bird.

    I still think it says something sad and/or disturbing about the people who thought up and approved that idea (IIRC, Geoff Johns and Dan DiDio were involved, but I'm not sure that it was all them), that the embodiment of love is a horrible monster who became Carol's supervillain projection for a while, called 'the Predator.'
