Since his first appearance--punching Hitler on the cover of Captain America Comics #1, published a year before Pearl Harbor--Captain America's comic books have told stories about what the U.S. aspires to be. Douglas Wolk, the author of All of the Marvels: A Journey to the Ends of the Biggest Story Ever Told, presents a talk and slideshow about Cap's 80 years as a funhouse-mirror reflection of American political history. A discussion will follow.
