A few decades before Captain America became a box office titan, he made a few visits to the small screen via a pair of t.v. movies that came out in the wake of The Incredible Hulk‘s television success. If you’re curious about these two curios, Shout! Factory is offering an easy way to check out both in one fell swoop. In October, they will release a double-bill set of Captain America and Captain America II: Death Too Soon. Both feature Yor himself, Reb Brown, as the good Captain and guest stars include Christopher Lee and Connie Sellecca. Read on for all the star-spangled details…

When former Marine Steve Rogers is in an accident, his only hope for recovery is an injection of the FLAG superserum — created years ago by his own father — which enhances each of his senses, as well as gives him great strength and fast reflexes. And to help him bring his attackers to justice, a government agency outfits him with a motorcycle and powerful shield, then turns the newly formed Captain America loose on the nation’s enemies.
Stars Reb Brown (Yor, The Hunter From The Future) and Len Birman
Captain America II: Death Too Soon
