Big Man after being bombarded with "vita-rays"

"Vita-rays." Is that not the lamest origin story of any superhero?

Steve Rogers, patriotic illustration student, tries to enlist, gets rejected, and some general just happens to overhear him grousing about it. Says, "Oh hey we've been looking for a guy to be this huge giant hero - how's about it? Would you like to be excellent?"

What's really mystifying is that Cap is still with us. And apparently still appealing, judging from this picture.
