Storyline

In 1941, Steve Rogers is the test subject of the top secret Operation: Rebirth. The experiment is a complete success with Steve Rogers' physiognomy suddenly raised to the maximum human potential. Unfortunately, at that triumph, the lead scientist was immediately assassinated by a Nazi spy and the formula was irretrievably lost. The US government, aware that war with Nazi Germany was imminent, decided to make the most of their resource by appointing Rogers as their propaganda symbol/government agent, Captain America. Armed only with an indestructible shield, we follow his adventures in World War II with his sidekick, Bucky. In addition, we follow his further adventures after he reemerges in contemporary times out of suspended animation to face all the threats to America and its ideals.

Trivia

Along with the other four superheroes featured in Grantray Lawrence's Marvel Superheroes series, all the music featured dramatically throughout the episodes were effectively recycled from Trevor Duncan's stock library that had most notably used tracks as the main theme and incidental music in Quatermass and the Pit (1958). The only music specially composed for the series were the main title theme for each individual hero and the (now rarely seen) Marvel Super Heroes main title intro song and the Merry Marvel Marching Society song which played over the end credits.

Probably seemed amazing to kids half a century ago.....
23 April 2018 | by OrangieTooDopeSee all my reviews

I was starting to like this series then at the start of episode 4 they say Bucky is long dead. What? He was alive at the end of episode 3. Just like the Submariner series, it seems that every episode was written by a different person and none of them saw any other episodes. Despite it's flaws, this show is still the most accurate on screen depiction of Cap's origin until the newer movies.
