* Nuke is a minor MarvelComics villain who was created as a knock-off/successor to ComicBook/CaptainAmerica, in hopes that he'd helped win the Vietnam War. He turned out to be a barely controllable, insanely patriotic killing machine. His EvilCounterpart status gets pushed up a notch in UltimateMarvel, where he's explicitly referred to as "The Captain America of the Vietnam War", in contrast to the original being "Captain America of World War II".



* As if the real war weren't horrific enough, the ''''TabletopGame/CallOfChthulu'' supplement ''Delta Green'' adds {{Eldritch Abomination}}s to the mix.
