Captain America #109
Issue(s): Captain America #109
Not much to comment on from a story perspective except that Fury tells Cap to stop whining so much, and in this telling the scientist who created the super-serum is named Reinstein (and drawn to look just like Einstein) and not Erskine.
The origin elements. Steve Rogers volunteers, is rejected but picked up by a special program.
Old lady mask:
Vita-rays this time. No oral or injected component shown.
Reinstein is killed.
And the Bucky origin is the same as in Tales of Suspense #63.
Standard Kirby (which means it is very nice), but there's not much of a story here for those of us already familiar with the origin.
There's also a really cool cover, with Cap bursting out of a newspaper.
Quality Rating: C
Chronological Placement Considerations: Moved back a bit to accommodate the Hulk's appearance in Captain America #110.
Continuity Insert? N

The best retelling of a super hero origin ever! By Lee & Kirby! This is an A+

Props to Syd Shores for his stellar job on the inks. Regarding the cover: "The background is the New York Times front page from December 8, 1941. (Source identified by Darci via the GCD Error Tracker.)" link
