Was it when Byrne was illustrating the book? Had to be late seventies early eighties but I'm really not sure as I don't have those books up north. Anyone? Anyone? The guy ended up in a broken heap missing teeth with his makeshift Shield looking like a garbage can lid (if that wasn't what it was to start out with)mangled by a days' worth of traffic.

Remember kids, The EIC of Marvel says that smoking is bad, divorce is bad, but Satanic Pacts are A-OK(as long as the Devil makes the offer FIRST)!

I don't recall that scene but I read an old Tales of Suspense not too long back when Cap decides to retire so he can have a "normal" life with Sharon Carter. A few Cap wannabes come out of the woodwork only to get injured and almost killed. Steve has to save one of them if I recall. I'm sure the idea has been revisited a few times.
