Sgt. Joe Rock was an Amalgam Comics character who first appeared in 1996 as an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., though sources say that he first appeared in Action and Suspense Comics during World War I in a comic-book era known as the Pulp Age.
During this time, the Amalgam Comics equivalent of the Howling Commandos (which Sgt. Rock commanded, rather than Nick Fury), the Commandos had a commissioned officer named Captain Wayne, but there is no known connection to the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, Bruce Wayne. Captain Wayne was supposedly killed in Action and Suspense #47.
Sgt. Joe Rock was the leader of the Howling Commandos during World War I, then as a young soldier, and later re-appeared during World War II alongside Super-Soldier. Rock saved his anger for the Nazis, and was very friendly to his fellow troops, including Corporal Clark Kent-a/k/a Super-Soldier.
