Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting unveil the defining story of the origin of the Marvel Universe, revealing the hidden connections that unite the earliest costumed champions, and whose reverberations are felt dramatically into the present day! It’s a world on the brink of war, and the race is on to create the world's first super-soldier! Witness the first days of the Human Torch, the Sub-Mariner, and many more-- how they shaped the world to come, and how the future they would create in turn shaped them!

[ CAPTAIN AMERICA COMICS # 1( 3/41 ) Captain America 1st story----HIS TRUE ORIGIN ]---PROFESSOR REINSTEIN( page 5 panel 5 ) "Behold! The crowing achievement of all my years of hard work! THE FIRST OF A CORPS OF SUPER-AGENTS whose mental and physical ability will make them a terror to SPIES and SABOTEURS!"-----IF THERE WAS SOMETHING WRONG with CAPTAIN AMERICA'S TRUE ORIGIN the why would MODERN MARVEL WRITERS KEEP BORROWING IT----OLYMPUS PROJECT [ Defenders # 126( 12/83 ) page 16 panel 1 ( Which was DEDICATED TO THE DEVELOPMENT of a NEW BREED OF SUPERHUMAN answerable directly to the President of the United States. )----see failed prototype LEVIATHAN/GARGANTUA( Dr. Edward Cobert ) http://www.marvunapp.com/Appendix3/gargantualeviathan.htm ] or ROXXON OIL's BRAND CORPORATION created( or altered/improved ) SUPER-AGENTS [ http://www.marvunapp.com/Appendix4/brandrox.htm ].                                                                       CAPTAIN AMERICA & BUCKY weren't TIMELY COMICS only SUPER-AGENTS there were OTHERS: EXCELLO ( Naval Intelligence )[ http://www.reocities.com/jjnevins/excello.html ], the FIN( US Navy )[ http://www.reocities.com/jjnevins/fin.html ], FIGHTING YANK( Government Agent/US Military )[ http://www.reocities.com/jjnevins/yank.html ], MERZAH the Mystic( In his first appearance working for US government )[ http://www.reocities.com/jjnevins/merzah.html ], the DEFENDER & RUSTY( US MARINES with similar cover as CAPTAIN AMERICA & BUCKY including their own female government agent( SALLY KEAN )[ http://www.marvunapp.com/Appendix5/defender_ga.htm ] and later in the 1940s there was GOLDEN GIRL( FBI agent BETTY/BETSY ROSS )[ http://www.reocities.com/jjnevins/golden.html ].                                DOCTOR PAUL ATWELL [ Young Allies #12( Spr/44 ) Young Allies 1st story  http://www.marvunapp.com/Appendix4/headygall.htm#atwell ] was the ONLY TIMELY COMICS scientist trying to create SUPER-SOLDIERS with his VITAMIN X( not vitamin k as written below ). Even in the original INVADERS series the NAZIS were trying to CREATE SUPER-AGENTS( see MASTERMAN ) not Super-Soldiers wearing MILITARY UNIFORMS.

These TIMELY COMICS SCIENTISTS should have been REVEAL TO BE WORKING with PROFESSOR REINSTEIN[ Captain America Comics # 1( 3/41 ) Captain America 1st story ] on his SUPER-SOLDIER SERUM since their SERUMS are SUPERIOR: In Germany---PROFESSOR ERIC SCHMITT[ Mystic Comics # 6( 10/41 ) Destroyer ] and OTTO MELTZER( Vulture )[ All Select Comics # 1( Fall/43 ) Captain America ] and in AMERICA---DR. JOHN STORM( his Serum also used a VITA-RAY like stabilizer )[ Mystic Comics # 5( 3/41 ) Terror ] and PROFESSOR STEVE JORDAN( Captain Wonder )[ Kid Komics # 1( 2/43 )]. These American Scientists should be added too: DR.

TODD( working on Super-Soldier Serum recreation ) should have been replaced with PROFESSOR MOXON( colleague of Super-Soldier Serum creator DR. DANGER ) [ Tough Kid Squad Comics # 1( 3/42 ) Tough Kid Squad ].                                                                                                      DR. MORRIS[ Marvel Super-Heroes # 3( 9/90 ) Captain America story ] should be the CODE NAME of CHEMIST PROFESSOR/MISS DAWSON of Reese University, New England [ Sub-Mariner Comics # 2( Sum/41) Angel ---has a bunch of unnamed SCIENTISTS who could resemble Modern Marvel created WW 2 era Scientists ---so ID them and Name them or use their images to create WW2 Era Scientist instead of making them from scratch ].                                                                              DR. EMIL FRANK( father of the WHIZZER )[ USA Comics # 1( 8/41 ) Whizzer ] should be ADDED TO PROJECT: REBIRTH scientists since a WHIZZER foe FRANK RONE replicated the METHOD USED TO GIVE THE WHIZZER HIS SPEED using INFORMATION IN THE WHIZZER'S JOURNAL.
