Indexer Notes

This story is an updated version of the second story "Captain America Comics" #1 (March 1941).

Agent 13 here is neither the modern-day SHIELD Agent 13 (Sharon Carter), nor her relative Peggy Carter, the latter of whom is a teenaged fighter in the World War II French resistance when Captain America meets her for the first time in "Tales of Suspense" #77 (May 1966). In the original 1941 version of the story, the woman identifies herself as "Betty Ross," a character who later calls herself "Betsy Ross" and eventually becomes Golden Girl.
