Captain America (then)
Drawn art ruled the minds of children long before the days of movies packed with CGI. In this gallery, we take a look at some of the most famous comic book covers of all time that introduced a major superhero, followed by an image of how that superhero is portrayed in a recent movie. As we progress further into a Digital Age, it's worthwhile to remember the roots of those famous Marvel and DC Comics heroes that sold hundreds of millions of comic books.
Captain America first appeared in March 1941. The classic cover was penciled by Jack Kirby and inked by Al Liederman. Writer Ed Herron wrote the first story in the series, which doesn't feature Hitler despite the cover image.
