Captain Freedom was a fictional Golden Age comic book superhero. His creator was identified as "Franklin Flagg" in the credits, but the identity of the individual behind the pseudonym remains unknown to this day. He first appeared in May 1941 on the pages Speed Comics #13, a Harvey Comics title. He continued to appear in Speed Comics until its cancellation. He was revived by AC Comics, where he became an inspiration for Liberty Corps, a minor superhero team composed of members (each identified as Captain Freedom) from around the world.
