"Captain America" Commie Smasher

Writer Stephen McFeely ("Captain America: The Winter Soldier"), has commented on the idea of using psychotic 'Commie Smasher' 'Captain America' from the Atlas series of 1950's comic books, for his "Captain America 3" screenplay, currently being drafted with co-writer Christopher Markus: 

As well as Marvel Studios partnering with the Communist Chinese government on co-productions ("Iron Man 3"), McFeely doesn't think there is enough original material from the 'Commie Smasher' era to justify an entire film.

"You know, there's probably 20 minutes of movie there," said  McFeely. "But there's something interesting about a guy who so desperately wanted to be ('Captain America') and be a tribute.."

" 1953, 'William Burnside' discovers the lost formula for the 'Super-Soldier Serum' in Third Reich files stashed in a German warehouse.

"He immediately tells the government about the formula in exchange of becoming the next 'Captain America', even undergoing plastic surgery to look like 'Steve Rogers', but the government is unconvinced that they need another 'Cap'.

"Becoming a teacher, the new Rogers befriends student 'Jack Monroe' and they gain access to the formula, using the process on themselves to become the new Captain America and 'Bucky'.

"The duo fight as 'Commie Smashers', but unaware of a 'Vita-Ray' process required to stabilize the recipient after taking the super soldier formula. Ultimately the formula affects their minds and they go insane, attacking anyone they suspect of being a cold war 'Russian spy'.

"The government quickly realizes they are out of control, and shut them down, placing them in suspended animation..."
