* '''Deconstructed''':
** Captain Patriotic does indeed represent his country's values... including those less-savoury ones that the so-called 'patriots' he represents would rather people didn't focus on, and which said patriotism can easily be corrupted into. His patriotism has become corrupted into extreme nationalism, and he is jingoistic, corrupt and blinkered, an arrogant hypocrite so blinded by cultural elitism and so beholden to and easily manipulated by government, military and / or corporate forces that he fails to realize that he is ultimately a stooge who does more harm than good overall.
** Captain Patriotic is a loyal, committed true believer to his country's national values. Unfortunately, his country happens to be Nazi Germany, Stalinist Russia or some other similarly totalitarian and genocidal regime.
* '''Reconstructed''': While various unsavoury forces in the government, corporate and / or military would like nothing more than to manipulate Captain Patriotic and the patriotism he represents for their own cynical, nationalistic ends, unfortunately they have failed to consider that Captain Patriotic is ultimately a true believer in the values he represents and who, while recognizing that not everything about his country is perfect, still maintains that there is much about those values he represents that is good, laudable and worth fighting for. As such, he is determined to fight as hard as he can to make sure that those more laudable values prevail -- including, if necessary, by fighting against those in his own country / government etc who would attempt to cynically exploit, undermine or destroy them.

* '''Played For Drama''': Captain Patriotic must deal with how he is able to represent his nation's values when they seem to be constantly shifting, at times away from those he understands or respects.
