Obviously, the answer is yes. But this was not a foregone conclusion. Well before the United States entered World War II, American superheroes enthusiastically defended America from foreign threats. In fact, a whole slew of new, patriot-themed heroes were created for just that purpose. Captain America was only one among many, and he wasn’t even

I enjoy reading memoirs and have found a small number of people writing in English about learning another language. Naturally these are different from books that help you learn to read in another language, children’s bilingual titles, or apps for audiobooks to use for language learning.

Most of the really great comic book crime-fighters wear capes and tights — most, but not all. It is my honor to introduce you to Toni Gayle, the “glamorous model-detective” who should have taken detective comics by storm when she debuted in 1945. Toni never even got her own comic.
