Abstract

Captain Euro is a comic superhero created in 1999 by “Twelve Stars Corporate Vision Strategists”, a U.K.-based company known for promoting the European Parliament and the European Commission in the 1990s. A key purpose of this essay is to provide some insights into the ways in which popular culture operates in the European Union in order to contribute to the construction of a European supranational identity.
