If you didn’t see the Captain America: 75 Heroic Years special last night you should go check it out here on ABC’s website.
It’s a really fun look-back on the origins of the comic, its progression over time, its historical real-life inspirations, and its impact on culture.
The special has some great old-school photos/footage from back in the day and fantastic interviews with Stan Lee, Marvel’s current creative minds, Chris Evans, Hayley Atwell, and a myriad of other cool faces.
I think my favorite part was when they were talking about Joe Simon watchingCaptain America: The First Avenger for the first time and he said, “I wish Jack Kirby was here.“ *COLLECTIVE AWWWWWWW*
Cheers, Jack and Joe! Thanks for creating my favorite superhero!
And thanks Marvel for 75 SUPER years with the Cap!
