Comics' First Functional Father/Son Relationship in Winter Soldier #4

It seems like no father/son relationship can exist in comics that isn't a freaking mess. Superman's dad kidnapped his grandson and brought him to outer space where he grew up to be a teenager. Batman's alternate-universe father is employing drastic measures to keep Bruce Wayne from being Batman. The Hulk's dad is messed up too. Are there no good dads in the fictional universes of comic books?

Well, how about this guy, the father of RJ, the confused young man taken in by the Winter Soldier after being brainwashed to become a trained killer?

About Jude Terror

A prophecy once said that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Sadly, that prophecy was wrong. Oh, Jude Terror was right. For ten years. About everything. But nobody listened. And so, Jude Terror has moved on to a more important mission: turning Bleeding Cool into a pro wrestling dirt sheet!
