From Golden Age Captain America #25:
Yup. That's Cap beating up a giant cockroach. And he apparently needed help. Not exactly one of his better moments.
But here's a great moment of Fun with Out of Context Dialogue! (tm!):
HA HA HA HA HA HA HAAAAAAAAAA!
That was a good one, if I do say so myself.
Although he answered his country's call to duty, Captain America could never forget his first love: Geography.
The Golden Age "Human" Torch always confused me. First, and foremost, he's not "human." He's actually an android. So it always confused me a bit when he would do things like eat and sleep. The nerdlinger in me has always been willing to chalk it up to "eating to fit in" and "sleep is a way to recharge his batteries" and "getting knocked out means he went offline" or something.
But this absolutely stymies me:
This is a guy who bursts into flames on a regular basis. Why is fire causing him pain?
I don't get it. Someone explain that away somehow, because it's going to grind my gears until... well, not for long, obviously. I do have other things in my life to worry about. But still.
See you tomorrow!
