Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 1 Recap, Episode 17: ‘Turn, Turn, Turn’

CA_AgentsOfSHIELD112-12111

Agents of SHIELD has had a lot of chances. It's had guest stars and movie tie-ins. It's had extended hiatuses when it could have re-tooled. It's had heavily pushed event episodes that were meant to reinvigorate the show. But for sixteen episodes the show has failed to catch fire. Now, after the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, the show has one more chance to prove itself.

SPOILER WARNING: This recap not only contains spoilers for tonight's Agents of SHIELD, it also contains spoilers for Captain America: The Winter Soldier. If you haven't seen the movie and you want to remain unspoiled, do not read on.

‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ Review: It’s Marvel’s Universe, We’re Just Living In It

Captain America The Winter Soldier review
Marvel Studios

When the first Captain America movie came out in 2011, the character seemed like a tough sell. His earnest patriotism felt dated to many and was alienating to some.

Marvel Studios has made a habit of landing tough sells. Neither Iron Man nor Thor were the obvious calls that they look like in retrospect, while the plan to tie the characters together in The Avengers was an ambitious gamble. Yet if Marvel ever has any doubts, it never shows in their movies. As Captain America returns to the screen in The Winter Soldier, Marvel Studios has never looked more confident.

The following was authored by Megan Margulies, granddaughter of the late Captain America co-creator Joe Simon.

Today Marvel Studios releases Captain America: The Winter Soldier. These movies are not only a cause for celebration by comic book fans, but also for the artists who created the superhero decades ago. In 1941, Jack Kirby and my grandfather, Joe Simon, dreamt of Captain America in an attempt to keep their heads above the turbulent waters of the comic book industry. Much to their surprise and joy, the character went on to receive worldwide fame.

10 Essential Eras of Captain America Comic Books

Captain America 10 Essential Comic Book Runs

You might have heard that there's a new Captain America movie coming out on April 4. If Marvel's marketing department has gotten its way, this news may very well be tattooed on the inside of your eyelids in phosphorescent ink. Let's say, however, you've never read any Captain America comics before, but now that he's been legitimized as a multi-million dollar film franchise, you're suddenly very interested in that dude with little wings on his head carrying around one of Uncle Sam's rims.

Since being created by Jack Kirby and Joe Simon all the way back in 1941, the hero also known as the Sentinel of Liberty has passed through the hands of some eminently talented writers, artists and editors. Some of these creative teams depicted Cap's adventures for a few months -- some of them for a few years -- before passing the torch to the next creators to keep the flame (or trademark) alive. In comic books, these tenures are called "runs," "series"  or "eras," and they're the readers' way of distinguishing one era of a character's saga from the next. Chances are you're not sure where to dive into a a publishing legacy that's spanned more than 70 years, so here is a list, in chronological order, of the Sentinel of Liberty's 10 most interesting and influential comic book runs.
