Journey back to the Golden Age of comics - a period that defined and shaped the course of comic books for years to come! It was a time of historical firsts: the first indestructible hero… the first female hero… the first sidekick… the first organized team of heroes. Between 1938 an 1942 alone, dozens of super-powered heroes and masked vigilantes debuted, many of whom are still being published today.

Among these pioneering heroes was the first ever super-patriot- a hero with great power, strength and courage who donned the colors of the American flag, lived for democracy and protected the world from the foes of freedom. It's The Sheild! Leaping from the pages of PEP #1 in January 1940, The Sheild bested his more well-known counterpart by over a year.
