Captain America defended an elderly Coney Island man (Jacob Kirsch) from a gang (the Coney Island Cruisers). After battling the gang and driving them away, the man talked to the super-hero. Jacob Kirsch showed Captain America where he lives. Captain America asked him: "You're the only tenant left in this abandoned building, mister--?"

Jacob told the hero: "Yes, after my wife died, I stayed on alone. One by one, the other tenants have moved out when the landlord abandoned the place... Not that I blamed them. No head, no repairs... It hasn't been easy. But I have no money, no family... so I stayed. What else could I do?"
