EXCLUSIVE CLIP: Joe Simon Reveals How He Came Up with <em>Captain America</em>

This EXCLUSIVE clip will be in the Captain America: The First Avenger Blu-ray extras, but you can see it here on ComicBookMovie.com first! Our thanks go to Paramount.

In this interview, Joe reveals that in coming up with a new comic book hero, he and Jack Kirby decided to work backwards by nailing down the villain first (Hitler) after realizing that Batman's popularity was due to his villians. So, Cappy was basically a side-issue! They just wanted to get old Aldoph in a comic book and have SOMEONE punch him out!
