got his powers from the British Super Soldier Program. There's Captain Britain, Red Guardian, Captain America, Union Jack, Captain Canuck (not Marvel), US Agent, the Patriot and so many other heroes that are proud of their country. However, Captain Midlands is one of the more obscure and hilarious ones of the bunch. Sid Ridley didn't get his powers through Merlin like Captain Britain, but through the British Super Soldier program.
‘Rambling’ Sid Ridley, as Captain Midlands, is the English equivalent of Captain America. Under the Super Soldier program of the early 1940s his strength, stamina and agility was increased to the peak of human fitness. This allowed him to fight as a British super soldier during WW2. Unlike Captain America, Captain Midlands was not frozen or preserved in time and therefore has aged accordingly. Somewhere in his 80s he still posses his superhuman abilities but has the aged body of a pensioner.
Sid Ridley, is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Captain Midlands was created by writer Paul Cornell and first penciled by Trevor Hairsine and first appeared in Wisdom #1 (January 2007).

John Storm is a hybrid character. A new breed of modern Knight, fighting to protect the natural world and the archaeology that defines man's development, from Tanzania, to the Moon and beyond. Storm's ace in the hole is the Elizabeth Swann, the onboard AI, Hal, and his enhanced performance via a brain implant and genetic modification. Thus, just about keeping pace with what the market expects in a modern world: A technological super secret agent. In this case, for Blue Shield & UNESCO.
