The Cabinet of Polybius

According to the story, an unheard-of new arcade game appeared in several suburbs of Portland, Oregon in 1981, something of a rarity at the time. The game proved to be incredibly popular, to the point of addiction, and lines formed around the machines, often resulting in fighting over who played next. This was followed by clusters of visits from men in black. Rather than the usual marketing data collected by company visitors to arcade machines, they collected some unknown data, allegedly testing responses to the psychoactive machines. The players themselves suffered from a series of unpleasant side effects, including amnesia, insomnia, nightmares, night terrors, and even suicide in some versions of the legend.

COMIC #89: U.S.A. Comics #4DATE: May 1942PUBLISHER: U.S.A. Comic Magazine Corp.CONTENTS: “Major Liberty”, written by Phil Sturm, pencilled and maybe inked by Syd Shores; “The Adventure Of The Frozen Corpses” (Jack Frost story), maybe written by Stan Lee, maybe pencilled by Pierce Rice, maybe inbed by Louis Cazeneuve; “We’ll Win!” (promo page) by Lee King; “The Defender”, maybe drawn by George Klein; “Vagabond” by Ed Winiarski; “Diamond Of Juba” (text story); “Captain Terror”, drawn by Mike Suchorsky; “Rockman”, maybe written by Stan Lee, maybe pencilled by Mike Sekowsky and Al Fagaly, maybe inked by Al Avison; “Corporal Dix”; “The Whizzer”, drawn by Howard James. Cover by Alex Schomburg. Editor: Stan Lee.CANONICAL STATUS: Partial canon (Major Liberty story, Jack Frost story, Defender story, Vagabond story, Captain Terror story, Rockman story, Whizzer story).Alex Schomburg does his first U.S.A. cover.  The Whizzer returns, drawn once again by Howard James.  Jack Frost may’ve been penciled by Pierce Rice and inked by Arturo Cazeneuve, a pair of artists from the Eisner-Iger shop who didn’t work much for Timely.  Rockman may’ve been penciled by Mike Sekowsky and Al Fagaly, and inked by Al Avison.  There’s also a new feature, Corporal Dix, with unknown credits.  U.S.A., now quarterly, will be overhauled after this issue, and none of these characters will return except the Whizzer in #6.  I think the Major Liberty story is Phil Sturm’s final work for Timely.Major Liberty foils your standard Nazi plot to steal your standard secret formula.  He’ll be mentioned in a 1990s USAgent comic and then never heard of again.Jack Frost is framed by a murderous chemist over some more nonsense about a secret formula.  He’ll show up next in 1976 as a member of the Liberty Legion.The Defender fights a fog-creating bad guy.  In his next appearance, he’ll be killed in a 2005 Daredevil comic for some reason.The awesomely weird Vagabond fights the Mad Monk in a falsely haunted castle.  I’m glad he’ll appear a couple more times in other titles.Captain Terror fights some Nazi torpedo guy.  He’ll show up next in the ’90s, meeting Captain America.Rockman fights some guy who wants to steal people’s gold mines.  We’ll see Rockman next in the Twelve in 2008.Corporal Dix is some army guy who convinces his brother to join the army instead of being a criminal.  Whatever.And the Whizzer has nothing better to do than help some guy recover his stolen carburetor.
