You all voted, now here are the results of what you chose as the 75 Greatest Captain America Stories!


55. "The Hero That Was" Captain America #109

This is the debut of the Silver Age take on Captain America's origin, by Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and Syd Shores...

54. "The Grand Director Saga" Captain America #231-236

In this storyline, most famously remembered for Sharon Carter being killed off off panel, the evil Doctor Faustus controls Captain America's mind and turns him into a neo-Nazi, leading to Daredevil having to free Cap (the story was written by Roger McKenzie, then writer of Daredevil). Sal Buscema drew it with a few different inkers.

53. "The Exiles" Captain America #103-105

This one sort of began in Captain America #102, where we meet the Exiles, a bunch of guys that the Red Skull had trained since they were kids to become his men in the then-future, which is now the present (well, WAS the present as of Captain America #102). The Red Skull and his men set up shop on a remote island and then the Red Skull kidnaps Sharon Carter and, well, that was a bad decision...

Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and Syd Shores did the arc. Holy crap, that is some awesome Kirby artwork.
