Cover scan for Captain America (Vol. 1) #303.

With all the rage going on in lieu of the release of Captain America: The Winter Soldier I thought that I would share this cover scan. It has the first appearance of Batroc The Leaper that I ever bought. Guess what, as an additional fact of trivia you can see that Marvel Comics already had a character called Machete before Robert Rodríguez.
