Good morning and welcome to the Comic Book Chat.
Today’s discussion – Captain America
December 20th, 1940 saw the release of Steve Rogers aka Captain America thanks to Jack Kirby and Joe Simon.
“What better way to introduce a hero clad in the American flag during World War II than by showing him decking Hitler? Simple and effective, we have Joe Simon and Jack Kirby to thank for this one.”
Captain America would join the Avengers in issue number four. He’s a steadfast symbol of America. His legacy was carried on when he was assassinated and aged and when he was disenfranchised with his own country for a time being.
Let’s discuss Captain America and what the character means to you and his place in the pantheon of pop culture.
