an expert July 2017 Captain America is a fictional character 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 patriotic supersoldier 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 shortlived revival in 1953 Since Marvel Comics revived the character in 1964 Captain America has remained in publication Captain America wears a costume that bears an American flag motif and is armed with a nearly indestructible shield that he throws at foes The character is usually depicted as the alter ego of Steve Rogers a frail young man enhanced to the peak of human perfection by an experimental serum to aid the United States governments efforts in World War II Near the end of the war he was trapped in ice and survived in suspended animation until he was revived in the present day Although Captain America often struggles to maintain his ideals as a man out of his time with its modern realities he remains a highly respected figure in his community which includes becoming the longtime leader of the Avengers Captain America was the first Marvel Comics character to have appeared in media outside comics with the release of the 1944 movie serial Captain America Since then the character has been featured in other films and television series more recently in the Marvel Cinematic Universe MCU portrayed by Chris Evans in Captain America The First Avenger The Avengers Captain America The Winter Soldier Avengers Age of Ultron Captain America Civil War SpiderMan Homecoming and the upcoming Avengers Infinity War 2018 and its untitled sequel 2019 Captain America is ranked

the idea for Captain America and made a sketch of the character in costume 4 I wrote the name Super American at the bottom of the page Simon said in his autobiography and then considered No it didnt work There were too many Supers around Captain America had a good sound to it There werent a lot of captains in comics It was as easy as that The boy companion was simply named Bucky after my friend Bucky Pierson a star on our high school basketball team 5 Simon recalled in his autobiography that Timely Comics publisher Martin Goodman gave him the goahead and directed that a Captain America solo comic book series be published as soon as possible Needing to fill a full comic with primarily one characters stories Simon did not believe that his regular creative partner artist Jack Kirby could handle the workload alone I didnt have a lot of objections to putting a crew on the first issue  There were two young artists from Connecticut that had made a strong impression on me Al Avison and Al Gabriele often worked together and were quite successful in adapting their individual styles to each other Actually their work was not too far from that of Kirbys If they worked on it and if one inker tied the three styles together I believed the final product would emerge as quite uniform The two Als were eager to join in on the new Captain America book but Jack Kirby was visibly upset Youre still number one Jack I assured him Its just a matter of a quick deadline for the first issue Ill make the deadline Jack promised Ill pencil it all myself and make the deadline I hadnt expected this kind of reaction  but I acceded to Kirbys wishes and it turned out was lucky that I did There might have been two Als but there was only one Jack Kirby I wrote the first Captain America book with penciled lettering right on the drawing boards with very rough sketches for figures and backgrounds Kirby did his thing building the muscular anatomy adding ideas and pepping up the action as only he could Then he tightened up the penciled drawings adding detailed backgrounds faces and figures 5 1974 Comic Art Convention program featuring Simons original sketch of Captain America Al Liederman would ink that first issue which was lettered by Simon and Kirbys regular letterer Howard Ferguson 6 Simon said Captain America was a consciously political creation he and Kirby were morally repulsed by the actions of Nazi Germany in the years leading up to the United States involvement in World War II and felt war was inevitable The opponents to the war were all quite well organized We wanted to have our say too 7 Golden Ageedit Captain America Comics 1 coverdated March 19418 and on sale December 20 1940910 a year before the attack on Pearl Harbor but a full year into World War II showed the protagonist punching Nazi leader Adolf Hitler it sold nearly one million copies 11 While most readers responded favorably to the comic some took objection Simon noted When the first issue came out we got a lot of  threatening letters and hate mail Some people really opposed what Cap stood for 7 The threats which included menacing groups of people loitering out on the street outside of the offices proved so serious that police protection was posted with New York Mayor Fiorello La Guardia personally contacting Simon and Kirby to give his support 12 Though preceded as a patriotically themed superhero by MLJs The Shield Captain America immediately became the most prominent and enduring of that wave of superheroes introduced in American comic books prior to and during World War II13 as evidenced by the unusual move at the time of premiering the character in his own title instead of an anthology title first This popularity drew the attention and a complaint from MLJ that the characters triangular shield too closely resembled t
