FYI, Captain America's fictional involvement in WWII *predated* the US's actual participation in the war.
This is, perhaps, a move by his creators to capitalise on the American public's guilt at not becoming involved in the European conflict earlier than they did. No matter that their country wasn't fighting the Nazis - their iconic symbol was.
Result? Ka-ching! Cap's eponymous debut comic (not even *Superman* started life in an eponymously-titled comic) sold BIG.
