      Surprisingly violent and realistic account of Cap foiling a major heist a gang of crooks are trying to pull at the Federal Reserve Bank in NYC. Supposed to tie-in to the comic book continuity (according to footnotes by Stan Lee that refer to events from Tales of Suspense and The Avengers), but some fans would complain about Cap's characterization. For example at some point he picks up a gun and shoots someone in the leg. But it's a nice, fast read (aside from the long descriptions of which roads [...]

      Re-read this as the 1st step in my catching-up-on-superheroes mini-phase.Used to be a comic fanatic as a kid. Don't read them anymore (actually, just can't get into them).I do love the superhero movies since it keeps the 12 year in me alive. As did re-reading this very short novel or, at least, to a point since it provided a quick fix. Best part for me was the brief mention of the Avengers one of my favorite comics.

      It must have seemed a good idea. Begin a series of super-hero novels and employ successful sci-fi writers to create them. The result, however, was a trifle flat and the series ended with the first two books.This one has a ridiculous story, too much characterization and back story for the hero, and not enough of either for the other characters. They only good things about it are the cover, which is beautifully rendered, and the scene in which a gang of baddies capture and unmask the Captain, but [...]

      This book was written in 1968 and is full of old cliches so it's kind of funny to read. The story is weak at best but it Does reveal how Captain America came to be, I forgot what a tool he was as a kid. There is some mention of politics and corporate greed that would totally fit in today's headlines. the writing itself feels a bit noir, but not too heavily done I personally thought it would have been better if it was done all campy like but whatever. So I will give a very brif outline but no spo [...]

      Ted White was never a really great writer, but he always told stories with a lot of verve and enthusiasm at a break-neck pace. Originally published just a few years after Captain America came back in THE AVENGERS (the comic book, not the movie; we're talking almost fifty years ago here!), this is a short novel detailing how Cap saves the world economy from a trio of criminals trying to rob the World Bank. I don't think it fits in with the commonly accepted Marvel continuity, but it's a fast, fun [...]

      an old novel published just a few years after Cap made his reappearance in The Avengers #3. Written in old pulp style, it concerned efforts of a criminal group to loot the Federal Reserve Bank in New York of $13,000,000,000 and Cap's battle to stop them before they brought America's economy crashing down.A fun read.

      I've owned this book since 1968, when I found it in a library 2-for-1 trade shelf. Very short, very simplistic, and lots of fun for nostalgia's sake. Great cover art, and a great version of Cap's creation. Story-wise, I wouldn't expect too much.

      One of my favorite books. I read it when it was brand new. It wasn't the greatest book ever, but I enjoyed it a great deal.
