I have finished reading Captain America! At least until next month’s issue comes out.
Therefore I bring you the Gallery of Captain Facepalm.
Left to right, top to bottom: Avengers #7, 1964; Avengers #106, 1972; What If… #5, 1977; Captain America #268, 1982; Captain America #282, 1983; Captain America #250, 1980; Captain America #398, 1992; Captain America #425, 1994; Captain America #15, 1999; and Captain America Annual #2, 1972.
That last one’s just in there because he looks like he would be facepalming if he could.
I thought for a while that my son would never be interested in my comics. I was afraid they would just represent another club he couldn’t join: all those big-jawed white guys with their hair parted to the side. But thanks to Spider-Man, my son imagines himself jumping on giant robots and saving the city. I hear him doing that behind the door of his room.
