  Wow, thousands killed? You'd think an event like that would be grounds for war, and would be regularly mentioned alongside Pearl Harbor.

  Not that it really is super duper, but c'mon, it's the first back from the dead, ever.

About the comment above - high death tolls were making the news almost daily, one day it's a ship transporting POWs to Canada being sunk by U-Boats, so the comics are only reflecting all that killing on some way.

  Will the real Captain America please stand up?

You know, this is a really good example of a story that could have been excellent with some good editing and a rewrite. Red Skull comes back, small time thugs are trying to scam people with a Captain America act, Skull picks them up, Cap and Bucky turn up and you hit the story's climax, maybe with fake Cap and Bucky learning a lesson?

I'm not sure exactly, but I think this could have been an excellent story with a little more time in the Simon/Kirby oven.
