2012 Super-Team Family: The Lost Issues: Wonder Woman and Captain America #219

Captain America had a movie serial is 1944 and thirteen installments of his own animation segment on The Marvel Super Heroes in 1966. Wonder Woman had a failed pilot in 1967, a TV movie in 1974, and three seasons of her own series in 1975-79. Cap scored a couple of TV movies in 1979, and had a box office bomb that was never even shown on U.S. screens in 1990. The Amazing Amazon got another failed pilot in 2011, while attempts at more TV and a feature film bid haven't panned out. The First Avenger reaped $370M worldwide, while Cap's current blockbuster, The Winter Soldier, is poised to match the total box office of Man of Steel while having cost significantly less to make/market. Wonder Woman will finally hit the screen in Steel's sequel and the Justice League film to follow, but it's still sad to see how Diana Prince owned the airwaves of the '70s, but has been left in the dust by the Star-Spangled Sentinel of Liberty since. That can be hard on a relationship, plus the United Nations Headquarters in the background kind of reminds me of the Triskelion, so it seemed a natural cover to showcase. Great work, Ross!
