We're in the final stretch of Imaginary Handbooks honoring the tenth anniversary of the launch of the modern Handbooks, with this one being done in honor of the OHOTMU Golden Age 2004. I'm looking to include both characters who were published during the Golden Age or who have been retroactively set in that period, much like the 2004 handbook did.

Agent Axis
American Avenger
Armless Tiger Man
Captain America (Burnside) Update
Captain Daring
Captain Wonder
Comet (Moore)
Defender
Doctor Demise (twice fought the Blonde Phantom)
Fourth Musketeer
Golden Girl (Sabuki)
Horace Grayson (Marvel Boy's father)
Head (Japanese agent)
Human Meteor
Human Top (Mitchell)
Human Torch (Hammond) Update
Invaders Update
Slow-Motion Jones
Colonel Fritz Klaue
Lady Lotus
Lavender
Major Liberty
"Big Ears" McGee (Whizzer foe)
Miss Fury
Moon Man (Golden Age)
Parrot
Phantom Eagle (Kaufmann)
Python (Cullen)
Sabbath Raven (Morelli)
Ernst Sablinova
Scarlet Scarab
Secret Stamp
Simon Steele
Strong Man (van Norton)
Super-Sabre
Thunderer (Carstairs)
Uranians
Vagabond (Murphy)
Volton
Mister Wu
Young Avenger
Zawadi (Monster Hunters)

Who (or what) would you suggest?

The Great Question
Attainia and Castile D'Or
Hitler (including his 50s appearances)
Jack "Flash Gun" Casey
Lorna, the Jungle Girl
Leopard Girl
Rex Lane
Combat Kelly (50s)
Combat Casey
Battle Brady
Torpedo Taylor
Battleship Burke
Iron Mike McGraw
Devil-Dog Dugan
Cobra (villain from original Human Torch/Fawcett Captain Marvel crossover)

And, although they weren't set during the 40s/50s, they were published then: Tex Taylor, Arrowhead, Red Warrior, Ghost Rider (Rex Fury), Wyatt Earp, Annie Oakley (western character from the 50s, not the blonde humor character set in the 1940s), Calamity Jane, Billy Buckskin, Wild Bill Hickok, Arizona Kid

And finally, because they're the ignored, redheaded stepchild of Marvel (despite being 616):
Tessie the Typist
Cindy Smith
Hazel
Jeanie
Miss Bliss
Patty Powers
Pearl Dimly
Sherry Storm

Oops, forgot to include these:

Heap
Fates (cosmic, not Olympian)

Burnside is an interesting case because it depends on if you use the 2004 definition of Golden Age (which allowed for Marvel Boy, etc) or the traditional definition. If the latter (the end of WW2 or soon after, before the 1950s for sure), Burnside's adventures as Cap happened a decade too late.

More suggestions:
Iron Cross
Kid Commandos
Invaders' plane
Sir Winston Churchill
Ringmaster of Death

wasn't Burnside in the 04 GA Handbook under his Grand Director alias?

Hmm, I think you're right. But still it would depend on if the new version of such a Handbook was to play by the same rules and include post-Golden Age/pre-Silver Age characters

I suggest the original versions of Rawhide Kid and Two-Gun Kid
