The 1950s Captain America Adventures


Cap lost his own book in the 1940s because, once the war had ended, a patriot hero seemed almost quaint.  Sure, we were all flag-wavers during the war, but afterwards, with the international menace of the Axis beaten, why did we need a patriotic hero to beat up on local gangsters?  However, once the US started dealing with the "Communist Menace", Marvel thought they had a hook whereby they could sell the country Captain America again.  It didn't last.
