Or – “The Capstone To Our Major Spoilers Star-Spangled Weekend™!”
The Hero History project is a strange and nebulous beastie, and has plumbed the depths of several corners of the Silver, Bronze and modern ages, as well as the depths of space and the mind of Jack Kirby. But one thing we’ve NEVER done before is troll through the Golden Age itself, that far-flung lost realm filled with Nazis, Fifth Columnists, guys named “Scooop,” “Hop,” and “Stripesy,” as well as the prototypical heroes that started this whole soopa-dupin’ thing in the first place. Though predated by MLJ/Archie comics The Shield (the first patriotic hero) today’s entrant predates even STEVE ROGERS in his red, white and blue exploits, and carries quite a pedigree, having been created by Will Eisner himself! He has outlasted a comics company, TWO entire Earths and most of his peers (numbering the late Red Bee, Phantom Lady, Black Condor, The Ray, Quicksilver/Max Mercury, Bozo The Iron Man, Captain Triumph. The Spider, Midnight and more.) As with any Golden Age refugee, he’s been through a lot of changes, but somehow he always manages to return to his original, iconic form before long. 65 years down the line, he’s still fighting the good fight with his two strong fists, an ironclad sense of right and wrong, and a damn fine looking hat. This, then, is your Major Spoilers Hero History of The American Spirit, known to some as Taylor Samuel Hawke, to others as Samuel Augustus Adams, or Sam Wilson, or The Patriot or many other names, but perhaps known best as… UNCLE SAM!
