CAPTAIN AMERICA - The Sentential of Liberty"

BATMAN
 

WHY HE'S COOL

He's the walking, talking, fighting spirit of America. A man out of time, created in the 1940's to fight Nazis. Captain America, with his invincible shield, is often the team leader of the Avengers and fights for truth and justice everywhere he can.

Born Steve Rogers, the skinny fellow wanted to help fight the Axis powers in World War II, but after an exam he was classified 4-F, not qualified. Then he was recruited for an experimental super soldier program, which turned Steve Rogers into a super mass of man meat: Captain America. Of course, the scientist in charge was quickly killed, so no-one else could be a super soldier. Being the only one of his kind, he was re-branded as Captain America. With his non-super powered side-kick, Bucky, Cap helped win WWII for the good guys!

On his last mission, Cap fell into the Arctic Ocean and was frozen. His body was found by the Avengers in modern times and he was brought back to life. He quickly continued his fight for the truth, justice and democracy, even became the leader of the Avengers.

Thanks to the supersoldier serum, Captain America's body is human perfection. So while he has no “superpowers” per say, no normal human can be stronger, faster or tougher than he is. Combine with extensive combat training and a brilliant tactical mind, Captain America can defeat villains far more powerful than he is. He also carries a shield made out of vibranium, which absorbs kinetic energy. Meaning, it can even protect Cap from point blank cannon shots.

Captain America often works as a freelance artist and dates Shannon Carter. A relative Peggy Carter, his girlfriend from the 1940's (no, that's not creepy). In typical comicbook fashion, his side-kick Bucky, thought killed, became a supervillain, Winter Soldier.

 

MOVIE VERSION

Currently played by Chris Evans (who once played the Human Torch in the FANTASTIC FOUR), in CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER, THE AVENGERS, CAPTAIN AMERICA: WINTER SOLDIER, AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON, CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR, and the upcoming AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR. In the movies, Captain America is shown to be more superhuman and powerful than in the comics. It's unknown who made Cap's shield in the comics, but in the movies, it was Iron Man's father. They also made Cap a founding member of the Avengers, which is not the case in the comics.
