Winging from World War II skies, it's Captain Danger, Nazi-dom’s ultimate nemesis! The exploits of this steely-eyed defender of justice, this whirlwind ace of aces, were things of legend as he struggled against the Axis of Evil. Captain Allan Danger, a character of epic proportions, first appeared in Air War, a new aviation magazine from Thrilling Publications in 1940. Intended as a companion magazine to Sky Fighters and The Lone Eagle, Air War contained a variety of aviation war stories, each showcasing an adventure of Captain Danger.
Captain Danger typified a hard-jawed, larger-than-life ace pilot who would battle the Nazi threat, encountering fantastic situations, robot-controlled planes, death fogs, and Nazi bombers that had harnessed the power of splitting the atom. In all, fifteen adventures of Captain Danger were published between 1940 and 1944, as the flyboys of the Allied nations battled against the war power of the Axis. The stories were part of America’s propaganda machine, blatant and unapologetic, high on hyperbole, low on subtlety. The Axis was portrayed as sniveling cowards who would shoot down helpless parachuters and run from an even fight —the Allies as staunch, dauntless, fighting for right. And greatest of them all... Captain Danger! Air War returns in vintage pulp tales, reissued for today’s readers in electronic format.
