Captain America & the Falcon #214

Just when Jack has found his groove, he abandons the mag. Too bad—the mystery of the Night Flyer & his cybernetic equipment will remain! This super-assassin prefigures the uber-competent mercs of the ’90s, but his weirdo philosophy & his OCD set him apart as a late Kirby creation worth noting.

Captain America & the Falcon #213

August 25, 2012

Jack Kirby
September 1977
****
Once again, Kirby’s Cap run visits a hospital—it’s almost a theme! Steve, temporarily blinded & dreaming night terrors, rooms w/ a “defector” that a criminal conspiracy wants dead. Enter the Night Flyer, a psychotic assassin obsessed w/ perfection. So odd, he seems ‘ported in from The Fourth World!
