The player asking for the Errol Flynn character in a WW2 campaign may or may not be a Munchkin, but he definitely is a jerk who is basically dissing both the GM and the rest of the gaming group by pushing for a totally different game setting than what's being offered and/or has been agreed to by everyone else. (If they were playing an Indiana Jones type game, then it might all be appropriate.)

The Munchkin would be asking for a time travelling character fully equipped with TL10 gear disguised as normal equipment who was using the rest of the party as a front and would killing them all whenever he got a chance so he could win.
Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than has any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishful thinking at its worst. -RAH
