Captain America’s Racist Sidekick – Whitewash Jones, Racism, Race, White Superiority, and Comics in 1940s America

With Captain America having appeared in two blockbuster movies in the past two years (Captain America: The First Avenger and The Avengers) with at least two more big screen appearances on the horizon, one of Marvel Comics oldest heroes has once again found himself at the top of the pop-culture pyramid. But for all of his success in the twenty-first century, few people know about some of the darker aspects of his past.  In particular, Captain America was aided in some of his early adventures by a racist sidekick known as Whitewash Jones (a member of the group known as the Young Allies) who has since faded from view, having been ignored by successive books examining Stan Lee’s, Jack Kirby’s, and Marvel’s history.  In this new podcast lecture (which you can download directly or from iTunes – see links below) I explore the character of Whitewash Jones, considering some of the implications produced by his existence as well as looking at racism in the early story of the superhero genre.  Enjoy the show!
