Captain America comic books rejuvenated the Marvel comic book here from the Golden Age of comics. Another creation of the great Jack Kirby (along with Joe Simon). Captain America comic books tell the exploits of Steve Rogers, a rejected WWII army recruit who takes a super-serum and becomes Captain America. Falling into an iceberg at the end of WWII, Captain America is discovered, de-frosted and brought back to action by Marvel comics in the 1960s. His origin was substiantially altered by the imporant mini-series, Truth: Red White and Black. Early issues of Captain America (1968 series) were later reprinted in Marvel Super Action (1977 series).
