CAPTAIN AMERICA #272 (1982): 1st Vermin

First appearance of Vermin.  The creators, Mike Zeck and JM DeMatteis, would use the character to great effect in Kraven’s Last Hunt, one of the greatest Spider-Man comics of all time.

In this issue he’s kind of like a cult leader of rats.

He’s a savage villain, and gives Cap a run for his money.

Also in this issue, we get a brief check-in with Sam “Falcon” Wilson, his nephew, Jim Wilson, and his group of Young Watcher vigilantes.
