While that is true (and it's not like Lt.Colonels or Major Generals are an alien concept), he seems to be referred to as "Master Chief" almsot exclusively in most media. Sure, you could call a superhero "Captain" if they actually held that rank, and almost never mention their name (or service), but it doesn't strike me as a good idea.excalipoor said:This has to stop! Master Chief Petty Officer, or MCPO is an actual rank in the US navy. They're called Master Chiefs for short. The Halo character is called Master Chief Petty Officer John-117, but he needed a nickname so friends just call him Chief.thaluikhain said:"Master Chief"?Cogwheel said:You know, someone needs to make a new superhero and call him Captain Lieutenant or something, just to confuse people.
