They are the Toronto Maple Leafs of Major League Baseball. See their lost their mojo when their star player Henry "Hurricane" McShane volunteered in 1941, the day after Pearl Harbour.

He went on to be the leader of the Irregulars, those brave soldiers who fought alongside the Victory Squad during WW2!

He was KIA in 1945 after the Victory Squad and the Irregulars lead a raid on Castle Fear in Germany as a last ditch effort to capture the Nazi supers known as Die Blitzkriegers (though American news reels called them the Uber Axis).

He is also the Great-Great Uncle of our own Spangle, aka. Molly McShane.

Both are good, and evocative of the time period, but I just like the original better. I can't tell you why exactly but I do...

I love this kind of world-building stuff, and I wish I was any good at it at all emoticon

I, too, like the original version of the logo better. Maybe it's because the stripes on the socks look more "old-timey" to me? Hard to say.

Either way, great work.
