Do Not Go Gentle: Red Eagle
Alias: Red Eagle (previously Blue Eagle)
Name: Rick Corving (born Rutger Goering)
Date of Birth: August 31st 1929
Rutger Goering was only 12 years old when he was forcibly extracted from an Ubermensche training camp, and brought to the USA. When he was 17 he was “activated” for the USA, and passed off as a product of the US Super-soldier program (as “Blue Eagle”), having been extensively “reprogrammed”. Unfortunately, shifting loyalty seems to have become part of his ideology, as in 1948 he fled the United States, with intelligence suggesting that he now calls himself “Red Eagle”, and has likely defected to a communist employer. He seems sincere in his new ideology, but then he always seems sincere. In truth Rutger/Rick has real difficulties with self-identity, and is desperate to find a belief system he can stick with and truly take to heart.

Superior Flight – Red Eagle can fly, at a speed of 85 miles per hour with perfect manoeuvrability. Also, at higher altitudes he can reach a cruising speed of up to 400 mph, though it takes time to reach this, and he is far less manoeuvrable.
Telescopic/microscopic Vision – Red Eagle can “zoom in” his vision to magnify up to x40, though he still finds this a little disorienting.
