The Greatest Mahjong Hero

This bungling accidental superman was the protagonist in the 1981-1983 TV Series, starring the Maggi-noodle-haired William Katt.   He was supposed to be The Greatest American Hero, but I have always wondered what that big red character was doing on his chest.

Didn’t the Americans know that it is the word “Centre” in Chinese ?  中 ?  Which made him look like a China hero, or could I assume that this fella was an incurable mahjong addict, who went for 红中 – that brick that shows a red letter “centre” ?  Some kind of trump card – or trump brick in this case ?
