"Joe Quesada Announces Sam Wilson, The Falcon, As The New Captain America On The Colbert Report"
"Sikh Captain America is a vision inspired by real life events and cinematic version of Jack Kirby’s fictional character. A 2-D creation of the turbaned and bearded Captain by cartoonist Vishavjit Singh inspired Fiona Aboud, a NYC based photographer to bring to life a 3-D version of the character.
The outcome was a memorable photoshoot on the streets of New York with the photographer behind the camera and the cartoonist in front of the camera.”

"Captain America, nearly named instead Super American (Superman was first published only 3 years earlier), is based rather closely on another patriotic hero by MLJ Comics called the Shield.
The issue was actually rushed a bit because Timely publisher Martin Goodman worried that Hitler would be defeated before the story reached the newsstands. Previously, Goodman was afraid to use Hitler’s actual name in comics, instead having stand-ins like “Himmler” (in a Marvel Boy story) and “Hendler” (from the Mercury story in Red Raven #1), because he thought Hitler might sue.
The cover to this issue, however, had Captain America punching Hitler in the face.” - x
