History

(Captain America in "The Metallic Monster") - The rampaging Metallic Monster caught the attention of Captain America and Bucky. Warning Bucky to stand back while he found a weak point in the Metallic Monster's body, Captain America was easily kicked aside by the Monster. Noticing the knocked-down power line, Bucky connected the power line to the Metallic Monster's leg, short-circuited the robot. Resting on the Metallic Monster's body, Bucky was told by Captain America that he had earned his trophy for the day.

The Kenner See-a-Show slide has a copyright of 1967 Marvel Comics Group, so Marvel owns the characters not Kenner.

This story appeared to take place during Cap's wartime days, as Bucky was present. The slide predated Rick Jones' tenure as Bucky, but I suppose one could argue that it was either Jeff Mace or William Nasland with Fred Davis; however, the slide also predates the retcon of the other Caps, so I suppose when the slide's strip was written, it was Steve Rogers.

One has to wonder how Bucky was able to handle a live wire without protection ... Perhaps knowing from news reports that they would be going up against a robot, Captain America and Bucky wore insulated costumes to protect themselves from any power surges given off by the Monster?
