of Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)
Seems like Captain America is everywhere this month.
Marvel Comics is releasing a new Captain America #1 and the second installment of the intriguing All-Winners Squad: Band of Heroes limited series, as well as Captain America and Bucky #620, Captain America and Thor: Avengers! #1 and Captain America Corps #2. Tack on Red Skull #1 (starring Cap's arch nemesis) and AC Comics' tribute to patriotic heroes, and you might as well call this Captain America Month.
