Liberty Legion

The Liberty Legion is a fictional superhero team appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The team was first created in 1976 and set during World War II. Composed of existing heroes from Marvel's 1940s Golden Age of Comic Books predecessor, Timely Comics, the team was assembled and named by writer Roy Thomas in a story arc running through The Invaders #5–6 and Marvel Premiere #29–30. Inspired by the Liberty Legion, a second fictional team called the Liberteens was published in 2007 as part of the Avengers Initiative; the genesis of the Marvel Comics superhero team the Liberty Legion came in the 1970s' World War II-set The Invaders, starring a team composed of Captain America, the Sub-Mariner, the original Human Torch, plus sidekicks Bucky and Toro, all characters that had appeared in Marvel's 1940s predecessor, Timely Comics. The Invaders #5 featured cameo appearances by fellow Timely characters Miss America, the Patriot, the Whizzer, who would go on to the Liberty Legion, the Fin, who would not.

The team was formally assembled and named the following month in Marvel Premiere #29, with additional Timely superheroes the Blue Diamond, Jack Frost, the Red Raven and the Thin Man joining. The team went on to star in two more installments of this four-story arc, in The Invaders #6 and Marvel Premiere #30, all written by Roy Thomas and illustrated by various artists. A new, unrelated version of the Liberty Legion, known as the Liberteens, based in modern-day Pennsylvania, debuted in Avengers: The Initiative Annual #1. "America's Homefront Heroes of World War II", the Liberty Legion differed from the Invaders by confronting Axis plots and influence in and around the United States as well as fifth columnists, rather than in the overseas theaters of war. It differed by consisting of obscure Timely Comics superheroes, rather than stars Captain America, the Sub-Mariner, the original Human Torch, their sidekicks; the Liberty Legion, included only two of the company's secondary tier – the Whizzer and Miss America, who in late-1940s comics were members of Timely's first super-team, the All-Winners Squad.

In the team's modern-day retcon origin, the Liberty Legion was assembled in 1942 by Captain America sidekick Bucky, the only Invaders member to escape a brainwashing trap by the Red Skull. To rescue his teammates, he gathered: The Blue Diamond Jack Frost Miss America The Patriot The Red Raven The Thin Man The Whizzer The Blue Diamond, Jack Frost, the Thin Man were here reintroduced into Marvel continuity, appearing for the first time since the Golden Age. Unofficial team leader the Patriot had appeared as a simulacrum projected from the mind of Rick Jones in The Avengers #97, but was otherwise reintroduced here; the winged Red Raven, who had starred in the single issue of a namesake title in 1940, had re-entered the modern Marvel universe with The X-Men #44. The Whizzer had returned as an older character in Giant-Size Avengers #1, relating how he and the since-deceased Miss America had married each other years before; the Liberteens, whose name is a homophone of "libertine", is a young group of superhumans inspired by the Liberty Legion and formed as part of the Fifty State Initiative of government-sanctioned superhero teams.

The group is first seen as the Pennsylvania-based Initiative team. The team consists of: The Revolutionary - A swordsman, inspired by the Patriot, is the leader of the Liberteens, he was replaced by a Skrull. The Blue Eagle - He is inspired by the Red Raven, possesses artificial blue wings that grand him flight, he wears goggles to protect his eyes from high velocities and carries two handguns. Hope - Inspired by the Blue Diamond, Hope has a diamond body that grants her super-strength, enhanced durability, speed and agility, indestructibility and space vacuum adaption. However, she does have a weak point similar to diamonds; the Iceberg - Inspired by Jack Frost, his icy body provides him with super-strength and enhanced durability. Ms. America - Inspired by Miss America, she has superhuman strength, stamina, durability and high-speed flight; the Whiz Kid - He was inspired by the Whizzer. The character had appeared as the super-speedster courier for the law firm Goodman, Kurtzberg & Holliway in She-Hulk.

2-D - Inspired by the Thin Man, he has a flat, malleable body. In public, the Liberteens use "liberty"- and "America"-based puns. In private, the group is shown celebrating victory with debauchery, with the exception of the straitlaced leader, the Revolutionary, revealed to be a Skrull sleeper agent involved in preparations for that shape-shifting alien race's Secret Invasion. During the invasion, upon the beginning of overt hostilities, a loosely organized band of Initiative members, including the Liberteens, join forces with the Skrull Kill Krew to identify and defeat the Skrulls within their own ranks, the Revolutionary among them. Afterward, the Whiz Kid saves her fellow Initiative members from the Skrulls' poisonous gas, before succumbing to it herself. During the "Fear Itself" storyline, representative of the Liberteens are called by Prodigy when the Initiative is restarted and briefed on the hammers that the Serpent summoned to Earth. Ms. Amer

1922 Princeton vs. Chicago football game

The 1922 Princeton vs. Chicago football game, played October 28, 1922, was a college football game between the Princeton Tigers and Chicago Maroons; the "hotly contested" match-up was the first game to be broadcast nationwide on radio. Princeton's team won, 21–18, it was to be the national champion of 1922, in this game received its nickname, "Team of Destiny", from Grantland Rice. It was the first college football game; the game was broadcast from KYW, a Westinghouse radio station in Chicago, to WEAF, an American Telephone & Telegraph station in New York City, from there to the rest of the country. Historian Ronald Smith has called it "probably the most important radio broadcast up to that point." Fullback John Webster Thomas scored Chicago's three touchdowns, one in each of the first three quarters, but the team failed to score an extra point for any of them. Walter Camp wrote in picking Thomas first-team All-American: "It is safe to say he did far more against the Princeton line in effective scoring than did any backs of the East who met the Tigers".

The Tigers had scored a single touchdown in the second quarter, the extra point for a total of seven. With 12 minutes to play and Chicago nursing an 18–7 lead, Howdy Gray of Princeton picked up a Jimmy Pyott fumble and ran it 40 yards for the touchdown. Gray's father, the president of the Union Pacific Railroad, reacted by waving his program in the air, striking a woman in the shoulder. After an additional Princeton touchdown was scored, Chicago responded with a fierce drive ending in a goal line stand with Thomas falling short of the goal. Halfback Harry "Maud" Crum scored Princeton's other touchdowns. At one point late in the game, Chicago assistant Fritz Crisler implored Amos Stagg to send in Alonzo Jr. at quarterback to call an end run. The sportsman, Stagg flatly refused, citing afterwards "the rules committee deprecates the use of a substitute to convey information."Both teams finished the contest badly exhausted Princeton, as during the last half of the game the heat was oppressive. The Princeton Alumni Weekly noted: "If this game proved anything at all it proved that a fine forward passing game can defeat a fine line-plunging game."
