Sgt. Fury and His Howling Commandos #14
Issue(s): Sgt. Fury and His Howling Commandos #14
Unfortunately Strucker gets a little too literal, and goes as far as finding a Nazi who likes horses, one who can play music, etc.
Missing the forest for the trees (and some Colonel Klink stupidity from the regular German soldiers), Strucker's team fails to defeat the Howlers.
But it was a good idea, and i like to think that Strucker's Blitzkrieg Squad followed him to Hydra.
The Skipper who brings the Howlers to the mainland will be transerred from the Navy to become the leader of a squad of Marines: Capt. Savage and his Leatherneck Raiders. He is still unnamed here, but is depicted and described as a Navy version of Sgt. Fury.
Nice opening splash from Ayers...
...but this really was one of the goofier issues of the series.
Quality Rating: D+
Chronological Placement Considerations: The Howlers are training for D-Day by climbing cliff walls. This takes place before the appearance of the Blitzkrieg Squad in Invaders #30.
Continuity Insert? Y

Ernst Mueller just showed up on Agent Carter. Maybe a significance rating bump for that?

Hey, i didn't even know they had last names! I see now they were revealed in 2008's Marvel Atlas #1.
I've raised it to a 3 since it's the first appearance of the Blitzkrieg Squad, and they do have a few appearances. We'll see if anything comes of Ernst appearing in the TV show.

Having now seen the Agent Carter episode, i don't think i have to bump the significance. ;-)
