This is a "Wild Mass Guess" entry, where we pull out all the sanity stops on theorizing. The regular entry on this topic is elsewhere. Please see this programme note.
Project Superpowers
President West is Power Nelson, the Future Man
Power Nelson, the Future Man, was a Flying Brick superhero who existed in an alternate reality where the free world was conquered by Emperor Seng I in the 1990s after the Second and Third World Wars. His Secret Identity was Gene West, who wore an Eyepatch, much like President West does.

This is odd because Emperor Seng II, presumably the successor to Emperor Seng I, is a member of the Supremacy, the secret council of Super-Villains — and so is President West. We can only assume that Gene West was corrupted and threw his lot in with the super-villains.
  • Confirmed as of the first issue of Chapter II.

Captain Future is a Take That to Nineties Anti-Hero archetype.
Maybe to Garth Ennis too.
  • how so?

Dare is the biological daughter of one of the Death-Defying 'Devils
It seems like it since her costume could be more then just an homage and even has two hand weapons like DDD has.
