  The whole "lowly private" thing is just about the worst idea for a secret identity ever. A private in the US Army, especially in war, has the least privacy and the least ability to act independently of just about anyone.

  What I do with these little dolls I can do with the real Captain America & Bucky" Doc, it might be a tad more difficult with actual human beings putting up a fight.

  I still don't understand why Cap has a secret identity while in the military. Didn't the military themselves conduct the experiments that turned him into a super solider? And why does Bucky use his real name for his superhero persona? How has Steve Rogers not been court marshaled as a war deserter for the multiple occasions he's run away from an active combat zone to become Captain America? Why am I asking so many questions about fictional characters?

  Finished boring SHIELD story to read boring Captain America story. I have to keep telling myself that I can make it through these dull issues so I can get to the good stuff.

  Just 1 star for Dr. Rawlings and his Castle Greyskull, uh, I mean Greymoor!!!

'Nuff Said - "Besides, why should I not trust the Nazis?"-Dr. Rawlings

  2 stars. Horrible story and logic. "Because I can shrink plastic with radiation must mean I can shrink human flash"... Smh. The shrunken duo would have made a great propaganda win for the Nazis, so I understand the means but still stupid stupid logic. This wasn't Torch or Giant Man bad, so it didn't get 1 star.

  Kirby's art, plus one. Cap in WWII, plus one. Heartfelt drama between brother and sister, add a star.

Minus stars for the old "What I can to these dummies/robots/henchmen in disguise I can do to the real superhero," Stan reusing the old "you're in my debt which is why you put up with me being pure evil" schtick, and Nazis parading around in an English castle in uniform.

But nothing beats 1960s Stan and Jack and Cap in WWII with Bucky, 4 stars, by Crom!

  Also 4 stars because all you naysayers are complaining about things that generally get explained later in Marvel Comics lore. Roy Thomas will always have an explanation to cover Stan's hasty mistakes. Sorry, that should read "future plot seeds" not mistakes. Face front, true believers!

  Utterly flawed and still entertaining

  Well, it wasn't terrible, but it wasn't great either. Sort of a filler story to get us to the next issue. I was hoping Bucky would be a little harder to capture.

And what's with Celia on Pg3/P4? I think she's been using the shrink ray on her waistline... yikes!

I also would have liked it on Pg6/P6 if, as Cedric said "My moment of glory is almost at hand!" he would have whipped off his glove and flexed the fingers of his mechanical hand, before letting loose with a hearty "Mua-ha-ha-ha-ha!!!"

  I really wasn't looking forward to reading this one, but it was surprisingly painless. At least the Captain was actually at war and not fighting mobster clowns at a circus or something ridiculous like that.

  How does he get his shield across the channel and into battle without anyone noticing? I figure it's too large to fit in his pack, and doubt it's foldable either...

  I think I like the Cap WW2 stories. They seem to be more interesting than the first stories in Tales of Suspense and about on a par with his Avengers appearances. I just didn't care for Bucky being captured at least without a fight. He's better than that.

  • That's my line "Aww, go kiss a grenade!" (Private Rogers)

  • That's my line too "You may not know it, but you just got a new navigator!" (Captain America)

  • What Rawlings could do with plastic figures does NOT prove he can do it with living beings. Well, unless you're Dr. Pym, of course, but he was not around at the time! And why bother with such a process? If they manage to capture them, they might as well get it over with and simply kill them, right?

  • The artwork was much better when Kirby was not only doing the layouts, IMHO.

  • I, too, was surprised Bucky would get captured so easily. So much for showing Cap what he can do without him!

  • Rogers could really deserve court-martial for disobeying a clear and direct order not to leave the area! I'm curious to see how this will end! KP duties?

  • Except for the few problems mentioned above, the story was okay! But the dialogs between the professor and his sister are so repetitive, it's not even funny! And the artwork was not remarkable either. 3 stars.

  just a episode to get the story going...but as Knoke mentioned, a pretty painless and quick read for just that...

  I still feel like these flashback Captain America stories should be placed in the WWII Order instead of the Main Order. I mean, they've got the Invaders series in there, so why not.
