ELKHART — It’s no surprise that the Hall of Heroes Superhero Museum is buzzing when it’s time to celebrate Captain America’s 80th anniversary. After all, here’s the guy who punched Adolf Hitler on the cover of his very first comic book in 1941 and who has fought for American values and humankind ever since.
“Captain America was the most important comic book character to come out of World War II,” said the museum’s curator, Allen Stewart. “Captain America is the wholesome, pure character of Marvel, like Superman is for DC. Captain America is the iconic symbol of what you want to strive to be.”
