Captain America Annual
Marvel // January 1971 - 1994
Issue count: 13
The annual volumes of Earth’s oldest and most classic superhero!
After a lot of success with their Annual volumes featuring longer issues with amazing stories, Marvel Comics decided not to stop, but to release more.
In 1971, Marvel decided to give Captain America his own Annual issues, also featuring over 70 full-coloured pages. Although the series ran from 1971 to 2001, there’s only 17 issues, meaning that there were some years when there was no Annual volume release.
Even so, the comics were highly anticipated due to the fact that it normally featured heroes from other comics, or assemblies of villains joining forces to take down a superhero (for example, the issue from 1998 is called “Iron Man & Captain America Annual”)

Key Facts About the Comic
This issue features Captain America’s villains Tess-One and Overrider for the first time. It also features Wolverine from the X-Men.
In this issue, Captain America makes an ironic comment about how the Avengers would never accept Wolverine in their ranks, which is years later proven as an irony when Wolverine joins the team in New Avengers #7.
Determined to end the threat of nuclear war, Overrider seizes control of Tess-One, a robot designed by the US government to eliminate super-soldiers. Wolverine and Captain America both intervene to stop the robot.
