Captain Dash-Ben Thompson-1942

One of the worst superhero costumes ever? According to GCD, Captain Dash was previously Captain Daring. As ever with WWII superhero tales, please excuse the historical stereotypes.


  1. Can you say "rip=off?" Can you say Captain America?

  2. How early in '42 did this story appear? By late '42 the US was pretty much all in on the war effort. In early '42 there were probably quite a few members of the "peace at any price" movement. I wonder if this was a slap at them?

  3. Comedy Comics #9 was cover-dated April 1942, so it could have been drawn prior to Dec 7, 1941.
