Well, sure, re: Steve. But Jim Hammond actually killed Hitler in Marvel continuity, and that gets brought up a fair bit. There's a difficulty in transitioning these characters from propaganda figures of their time to somewhat more nuanced

I guess, the way I see it, there are three ways to tackle it.

1) Show this stuff, don't have the heroes able to change anything, do anything about it, which is bad because it "twists the storyline to ensure that the eponymous heroes do nothing about it"

2) Show this stuff, and have the heroes actually like, save the people in this one particular (fictional) camp, which is bad because you risk twisting the (historical) storyline to show these fictional propaganda heroes saving people in a way that they didn't

3) Not show this stuff at all, which saves everyone embarrassment, but risks leaving you with bowdlerized version of WW2.

I don't think there's any good option, really.
