The History of G.I. Joe part 15- Andy and George

The History of G.I. Joe part 14- Captain Action

Captain Action, he's our hero! Actually, he's several of our heroes! He's the Phantom and Spider-Man and Buck Rogers. He's the gol'-dang Batman!

Possibly the coolest competitor to G.I. Joe to appear in the 1960s, we're looking at this versatile hero today, and all the other heroes he becomes, all by looking at a cheesy product catalog disguised as a comic book! Woo!
