The first superhero comic books would have superheroes enter WW2 and fight the enemy. But that was a popular war. Vietnam, in the 60s, was not. And yet, someone tried to make a superhero soldier called Super Green Beret. In fact, it was by Otto Binder, who wrote the most Captain Marvel/Shazam comics. It's a poor fit. This episode is just a fun look at a bad idea.
