View Full Version : Captain America in The Pacific: WW II Was More Than Nazis
02-17-2010, 09:26 AM
I'm watching the promos for The Pacific and it occurs to me I can't think of a single story involving Cap fighting in the Pacific Theatre. Granted it lacked a definitive "evil" ideology for him to oppose like Nazism, but given Cap was also part propaganda tool, so you'd think the brass would send him there as well to help bolster the troops, especially after Pearl Harbor.
Can anyone name a Cap in The Pacific story?

There was the three-part story recently in Cap, dealing with the weaponizing of the Human Torch's flaming cells, that included flashbacks to WWII Era Invaders operation in the Pacific Conflict.
I know Cap mentions his time in Japan during the war, somewhere in the first post Heroes Reborn issue by Waid and Garney, but can't remember if we get any flashbacky narrative.

I read in a Marvel Universe title 10 years ago about Baron Von Strucker stealing the Dragon of Death and Cap and the Invaders had to take them out. This Dragon of Death was supposed to be from Japan and from a golden age Cap story. I think Roger Stern wrote it.

Cap spent some time in the Pacific, but, he really didn't have that much time.
He was in Europe fighting Nazi's before America even entered the war and then he was frozen while the war in Europe was being wrapped up.
Still, it would be cool to see a mini about Cap and/or the Invaders in the Pacific.

I could be wrong, but I think that Fury and the Howling Commandoes actually saw more action in the Pacific than Cap. Didn't they cross paths with Yellow Claw a couple times back then?
