In addition to the appearance of Uncle Sam in politics, the character has also appeared as a comic book hero for Quality and then DC Comics. He is presented as the living embodiment of the United States and is the leader of the freedom fighters. There was also a short cartoon in the 1980s called "Uncle Sam's Adventures."
Furthermore, Uncle Sam appeared as a horror villain in the eponymously titled 1997 film, Uncle Sam. In this film, a veteran who died during desert storm rises from the dead to exact justice upon those he perceives as "unAmerican" after some teenagers burn the American flag on his grave. The poster is a full-on spoof of the classic Uncle Sam poster, with a zombified Sam and the tagline "I want you... dead."
