      For nine months—from December to September —Captain America was known as the Commie Smasher, along with his World War II sidekick, James “Bucky” : Charles Moss.   When events began happening in Europe that would eventually lead to World War II, many Americans took an increasingly hard line toward getting involved. The events of World War I had fed into the United States' natural desire of isolationism, and this was reflected by the passage of Neutrality Acts and the general hands-off approach to the events that unfolded on the world stage.
