Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. His powers? The ability to rustle a newpaper while 'harrumphing'

    his Kryptonite? hmm, a queue at the post office maybe.

  2. ohh, morris dancing. Would that be an ability or his achilles heel?
  3. Superpowers would certainly include:
    the ability to converse in many languages through the use of 'the voice' I.e shouting.
    chameleon like skin for operating overseas - hues range from white to bright red
    Super martial powers unleashed on drinking the mystical golden elixir. About 12 pints usually.
    unique driving skills: simultaneously honking Horn,flashing lights and sticking up fingers - on the wrong side of the road.

    Assisted by his barely literate, and mostly incomprehensible side kick, Scots-man.
  4. Captain England - Weapon Withering Sarcasm and Pithy Put Downs.
    Sidekick Bulldog - Headbutts and broken beer bottles. Has to be broken out of jail like Murdoch from the A Team as he's doing 30 years for Throttling Belgians during a Football match.

    Weaknesses Captain England - Repelled by Garlic and other Continental Food.
    Weaknesses Bulldog - Scrabble and cannot abide the sound of Opera
  5. I quite like the idea of an English superhero. After all we had Johnny English didn't we?
