Tales Of Suspense #59 (Captain America)
Issue(s): Tales Of Suspense #59 (Captain America story only)
Poor Cap is hanging around the Avenger's mansion in full costume with nothing to do. Looking through his scrapbook just depresses him.
Meanwhile a mob boss - Bull - decides to attack the Avengers - not sure exactly why. Bull figures that since Captain America has no powers, he is the weakest link. So they kidnap Jarvis and make him tell them who is on duty, and when they find out it is Cap, they attack. They are a fairly effective mob, with a bunch of individual fighting abilities. One guy wears a big old suit of armor, which is both silly and cool.
Cap still manages to beat the crap out of them.
Quality Rating: C-

i imagine Jarvis sounding British and uppity when he tells Bull he could have just phoned to find out which Avenger was on duty that night.
whilst fighting Bull's "Karate Team" (and why, exactly, doesn't every super villain group have one?), cap says "Who taught you amateurs your karate...Millie the model?". that's just uncalled for. i bet Millie's karate is superb. and she looks great doing it!
