Some time ago, I did a post where I wondered if Captain America "Sentimentalized" World War II. So, here are two of those pages, and a third one from CIVIL WAR: WAR CRIMES.

Making Falcon partners with Captain America was a good idea. Trying to discuss race relations in a superhero comic in the 1970s was also a good idea. Yet, the same thing happened to Falcon *and* Sam Wilson a lot: An African-American character would call him a "sellout" and other nasty names.

Two pages from CAPTAIN AMERICA AND THE FALCON #151.

Did anyone read that Harriet Beecher Stowe novel? )

Been a month since this was released, apparently it's all but confirmed it's set post-Secret Wars, though I don't fully understand what that means yet, honestly.

It's heavy on the Pym/Ultron/Vision trifecta, and this is an image-heavy post, forewarned.

CAPTAIN AMERICA #276-278 contained a three part backup story called "Snapping" about Sam Wilson and his time as "Snap" Wilson. It isn't really a Falcon story, as Sam is only the Falcon in one panel. It is also by the same writer, J.M. DeMatteis, and artist, Mike Zeck, as the main story.

Hi folks!

Captain America has fought many enemies over the years, and a surprising number of them have also been "Captain America." These twisted reflections of our hero represent America's fear that we aren't who we want to be, the best of the America spirit. Instead, they are distorted by hatred and greed, the America we do not want to be.



This is the story of one such man, Fifties Cap. This story is from Captain America #155 in 1972; six pages of twenty.

CAPTAIN AMERICA #183 took place while Steve Rogers was the Nomad. (He was depressed that Number One of the Secret Empire turned out to be Richard Nix -uh, I mean a high-ranking White House official.)



My WORD that is an unusual last panel on that page.
