Captain America #246
Issue(s): Captain America #246
Joe's still having a string of bad luck. His acting career as the Crimson Bat has fallen apart....
...his wife left him, and his kid had a birth defect that eventually kills him. Joe goes after those that he felt were responsible.
Cap is able to get through to him before he kills his final victim.
A little heavy but still decent writing from Gillis in this fill-in as we wait for the Stern/Byrne team to start.
Quality Rating: C+
Chronological Placement Considerations: The MCP has this issue placed earlier than its publishing date to clear the way for Cap's appearance in the Avengers.
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: N/A
Inbound References (1): showCaptain America, Joe Smith, Josh Cooper
Pretty neat that Gillis dusted off a character that really could have just disappeared, wasn't a big fan of him and gave him some depth. A drag Joe got more raw deals in the end.

Apparently he turns up a couple of times more, including a ret-conned appearance between his first appearance and this one.
