Captain America is truly an icon. Since his debut in 1941 in the pages of Captain America Comics #1 by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby he and his sidekick Bucky have been part of the fabric of comic books and popular culture. Later of course Cap is defrosted and put into the middle of the Marvel Universe concocted by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and others.
