Captain America

Captain America! Wow! Yeah! what Cap’ said, you scum!

Well, that was a really patriotic and anti-communist was it not?  Oh, and there is plenty more where that came from.  According the The Atlantic, back in the 50s Captain America was know as the “Commie Smasher” for a few months.  The same article also says that Captain America’s archenemies were turned into communists, and that the Captain even says that the communists are “the Nazis of the 1950s.”  The article “Secret Identity Crisis,” tells how Captain America represented America during the Cold War.  Here are some more examples of Captain America’s ‘commie smashin.’

And for further reference on the Captain’s anti-communist past check out Golden Age Comics and  “Let’s Rap With Cap.”
