    Thanks. I wonder why the writer said it was an accident?

    Hi all.

    Which comics,stories can you recommend about Captain America fighting in World War 2?

    I've read Captain America:White and issue 601. Any other similar themed stories are appreciated.

    Thanks.

    I picked up the first Golden Age CA Omnibus and it was iconic.

    Neal Kirby's response to the January 6 insurrectionists who wore Captain America shirts.

    I was thinking about writing an article about Trump as Hydra Cap from the Secret Empire Event, because the similarities are so tempting.

    Wise words that could have only been said by the son of the King.

    True enough.

    Funny enough, Secret Empire came about, at least in the real world, as a response to creeping fascism in America as represented or embodied by Trump, with plenty of critique of the circumstances and conditions leading to Trump's rise to power, specifically taking aim at the hypocrisy and corruption of modern Western liberal democracy, allegorized by the superhero community in the wake of multiple devastating internal clashes, that alienated so many and drove them to believe fascism was a superior solution to their (and the nation's) problems. Granted, it could have been handled a lot better than it actually was, especially near the end, but I still appreciated the philosophical confrontation in the epilogue issue between Steve Rogers and HYDRA-Cap, representing differing ideals and goals for America and its people. That almost redeemed the whole thing for me.

    at this point does Steve have hideouts/safehouses with spare costumes, vehicles, helpful equipment? Will we see a return of his traveling van?

    Same here. I was really bothered seeing them use Cap's imagery.

    Yeah, that was disgusting, to say the least. Glad Neal Kirby spoke up, especially since they were the same kinds of people his father was ready to and did fight against. I still recall that one story in which American Nazis tried to threaten Jack Kirby, and Jack Kirby was ready to go down and fight them all barehanded, though the cowards fled by the time he reached where they said they were waiting for him. Talk s***, run before getting hit, I guess.

    Back when he first created and published Captain America. Since the very first Captain America story had a(n iconic) cover of Cap punching Hitler's lights out, some American Nazis didn't take kindly to it and called Timely's office phone to threaten Jack Kirby, saying they were gonna show him what they'd do to Captain America. To the shock, surprise, and horror of almost everyone in the office, Kirby rolled up his sleeves and went to confront them in person, though they'd already fled by the time he got outside, as someone had called the police on them, I'd presume out of fear for Kirby's life.
