Indexer Notes

This is chapters 1-3 of a 7 chapter story and is concluded in Marvel Super-Heroes #18. The next All-Winners Squad story is in What If? (Marvel, 1977 series) #4, which occurs chronologically before this one and retroactively establishes that the post-war Captain America and Bucky here are Jeff Mace (a.k.a. The Patriot) and Fred Davis.
