Reprinted Issue:
2nd story: Sub-Mariner Comics Vol 1 #1, Spring, 1941; "Deep-Sea Blitzkrieg!"

Captain America's origin story from Tales of Suspense #63 is recapped in this issue; the two U.S. Army generals who were talking to President Roosevelt about Operation Rebirth are named for the first time as General Phillips and Simms.
Captain America and the Human Torch remember their previous team-up against the Red Skull; those events had been recorded in Young Allies #1, later revealed to be a fictionalized account of the real events, which were shown as they really happened in Young Allies Comics 70th Anniversary Special #1.
Sub-Mariner Comics #1's reprint had been modified from its original version with a footnote indicating that Emperor Thakor (himself unnamed in-story) did not die as originally intended, but actually fell into suspended animation for the duration of the whole war.
