On December 20, 1940 was published Captain America Comics #1, whose historic home reflected the triumph of the protagonist about the ideologist of national socialism. Simon and Kirby left Timely in 1941, but shortly before a young Assistant Director had joined the company. Born Stanley Martin Lieber, soon he started to sign his scripts under the pseudonym of writer Stan Lee, a name without which can not understand the history of the comic book superhero. With the end of World War II, the prrencias of readers inclined to another class of subjects, since nobody wanted to immerse themselves in stories of good and bad, which meant a rapid decline of the superhero genre. The first stage of Captain America lasted until 1950, then reappear briefly in 1953 and 1954. It would not be until 1963 when Lee, which by then already had created to the fantastic four, granted a second chance to the ICSC’s bars and stars, which was reborn in a cartoon beside the human torch.

This special episode is the first of 44 including the living legend, a book dedicated to the Renaissance of Steve Rogers (real name of superhero) at the hands of Lee and Kirby (who by then had already returned to Publisher). This new point of departure had a very special meaning for both authors. In the case of Kirby it was to redraw the great hero of the second world war he contributed to present. For Lee, return to narrate stories of the character that started his career in the world of comics, recalls Fonseca. ery. After a few stories to warm, the authors of the series bet on a trip to the past with the ICSC adventures during World War II.

With his faithful partner Bucky Barnes (who then died in tragic circumstances), the superhero will face the most terrible enemies: the nazi villain red skull. Aside from discovering the roots of the superhero, these vignettes allow us to meet characters as evil as Baron Zemo, the Adaptoide, Modok or Batroc the leaper, as well as intermittent collaboration between Steve Rogers and Sgt. Nick fury (leader of howler commands) and, subsequently, j of the super-secret organization SHIELD. In short, a fantastic work on this character who now makes the leap to the big screen.
