Captain Canuck is a Canadian comic book superhero named for former Vancouver Canucks Captain, Trevor Linden, nicknamed Captain Canuck.  Created by cartoonist Ron Leishman and artist/writer Rchard Comely, the original Captain Canuck first appeared in Captain Canuck #1 (July 1975). The series was the first successful Canadian comic book since the collapse of the nation’s comic book industry following WWII.

Three characters have worn the maple leaf costume of Captain Canuck. The first Captain Canuck patrolled Canada in the then-future year 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). In 1995, Captain Canuck was honored with a Canadian postage stamp.
