Characters Appearing: Captain America
Captain America #260
Issue(s): Captain America #260
So the warden that installed the password door has resigned in shame, and now a new warden has asked Cap to come to the prison to see if he can break out of it. The warden wants to install some liberal reform policies at the prison, but only after he confirms that it's secure.
At least two of the prisoners, including "Thumper" Morgan and "Deacon" were prisoners back in the day and are still there now.
Cap does manage to escape, but he does it in a way that proves that the new security measures would hold up against regular people, and he also manages to convince a young prisoner, who looks about 15, that even though he's in jail he shouldn't become a hardened criminal.
Minor DC crossover here:
There's really something to be said for having a working history of Marvel comics in your head. I don't know what people who read this without having read Tales of Suspense #62 would make of it. It's a pretty boring prison story with a saccharine reformation subplot for the kid. But hanging that on the crazy Suspense story makes it a lot more fun to read.
Quality Rating: C
Chronological Placement Considerations: The MCP places this between Avengers #208-210.
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: N/A
At least the story addresses the silliness of having such a common password, having the former warden resign in disgrace. But it is a silly story with a great cover.
