    It's based on how the region of Saitama, when spelled in kanji, can be written in two different ways - the alternate spelling uses a kanji which can also mean "colorful".

    Looking up Saitama on wikipedia it looks like their official mascot is a Dove. I wonder if that has anything to do with the wings...

    -ZacWilliam, heck it could be a double pun with both the "colorful" meaning and the story of noah's dove and the rainbow, though that's not a particularly japanese-y so it could easily just be a coincidence...

    Chicago Prime would be a repaint of Bulkhead with a ball cap, holding an italian beef sandwich in one hand and a slice of deep dish pizza in the other. :)
