It's time to face facts, true believers – the '90s were great. The laser cannons were plentiful, the costumes were impractical, and Marvel Universe dentists made a fortune correcting damages caused by perpetually gritted teeth. Thanks to the power of nostalgia, though, what would once be considered extremely embarrassing can now be called extremely awesome!

With that in mind, we've pulled a Marvel comic from the not-so-modern era and broken it down, one bodacious fact at a time! This week we're celebrating CAPTAIN AMERICA (1968) #438, by Mark Gruenwald and Dave Hoover. Here's "The Bombs Bursting In Air" by the numbers!

                          That 90's version Cap was atrocious, sorry, nothing cool about that.
