Friday Night Fights--Fighting Heart Style!!

It's time for some Captain America love.

I love Cap, his films have been the best Marvel movies yet, and goddamn it, he's Cap!!

So for this week's Friday Night Fights, let's show him dealing with a villain who outclasses his in strength and powers.

Moonstone (the original) has framed Captain America, "proving" that's he's a traitor, as part of a plot to by Moonstone to make himself America's new favorite hero, to better help the Secret Empire take over the country.

But now, on the lawn of the White House, Cap is back to clear his name!!


Of course, we shouldn't be too happy, because just 2 pages later, Cap catches the head of the Secret Empire in the Oval Office, and it's revealed that he's Richard Nixon, who commits suicide rather than face trial, and as a result Steve Rogers is so disillusioned that he gives up the Captain America identity. The 70s, man...

Spacebooger would like to know what happened to Spiro Agnew in the Marvel Universe...

Moonstone is humiliated in Captain America #175 (1975) by Steve Englehart, Sal Buscema and Vinnie Colletta

Now is the time for you to go and vote for my fight. Why? You don't want this story put onto the sliding timeline, so it was some other president besides Nixon, do you? Well, then, help me fight the sliding timeline--go and vote!!
