The Star Spangled Avenger

Captain America is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Created by cartoonists Joe Simon and Jack Kirby, the character first appeared in Captain America Comics #1 (cover dated March 1941) from Timely Comics, a predecessor of Marvel Comics. Captain America was designed as a patrioticsupersoldier who often fought the Axis powers of World War II and was Timely Comics' most popular character during the wartime period. The popularity of superheroes waned following the war, and the Captain America comic book was discontinued in 1950, with a short-lived revival in 1953. Since Marvel Comics revived the character in 1964, Captain America has remained in publication.

His alter ego is Steven Grant Rogers and he is mostly know as the leader of The Avengers these days. Some of his abilities include enhanced strength, stamina, durability and agility. He is most known for his shield and his star spangled suit. He has been seen working along side Nick Fury, Peggy Carter, Bucky Barnes, Falcon, and of course, his fellow Avengers.

He started out as a frail young man that wanted so badly to be a part of the US military. To do so, he volunteered for an experiment with a new super soldier serum that increased everything from height, muscle, stamina, strength, endurance, and hundreds of other attributes. He was then dubbed Captain America, the face and leader of the American Military. He is mostly seen going toe to toe with Natzis led by Red Skull.

Now, a modern day fan would only know Cap as Chris Evans for his work as The Star Spangled Avenger in The MCU franchise, but Cap has been seen in live action before in a 1944 Captain America film serial. He has also been seen in hundreds of animated movies and tv shows voiced mainly by Roger Craig Smith, who has also voiced Batman on a few occasions.

Here is a little fun fact for you, Cap was ranked 6th on IGN's Top 100 Comic Book Heroes of All Time list in 2011, he ranked 2nd in IGN's Top 50 Avengers in 2012, and second in IGN'S Top 25 Best Marvel Superheroes of All Time in 2014.

I would love to hear your thoughts on what you think Cap would say about the shape of America today. What would he say to our leaders, our enemies, or even us. I personally think Cap would be shocked to see the landscape of our country and all the hate and bigotry in our government and our people. Let me know.
