Personal Quote:

I was 24 when I first started creating Captain America. It's been a guardian angel hanging over me my whole life. Everywhere I went - in the service or wherever - I wasn't Joe Simon; I was Captain America. It was like a cloud hanging over me, but a good cloud. I loved it. (in an interview with the Philadelphia Daily News in 2005)
