Look, I like the golden age as much as anyone, but Stan Lee isn't fooling anyone with this stealth retcon on Captain America's history. Bucky did NOT die in World War II! He died in a hospital bed, alone after Cap dumped him for Golden Girl in the early fifties. I have the back issues! Don't try and pull some "Oh, he was frozen in an iceberg since WWII!" bull. There are plenty of stories with Captain America after the war. He could have just been in retirement and decided to come out after seeing the Avengers in action. But no, Stan had to try and be clever (and by try I mean fail) and have him be frozen in ice. How does that even work? Wouldn't he have DIED from the lack of oxygen? He's not Superman!

If you're reading this Stan, Just because you renamed the company doesn't mean you get to ignore the history of Timely and Atlas. DC had the Golden Age Flash use his backstory when he returned. It's not that hard to go look up the 40s info! Roy Thomas has a great webzine on the subject, Alter Ego! Man. Roy'd make a great comic writer.

I'd bet he could fix this retcon madness.
