Captain America has been around for over a century, and has built an empire of his own on the Great Adventure of Cap. There are some interesting comic book storylines which could use, but most it is likely a safe bet that at least some of those crazy comic book arcs will not be in them. So why do we think Cap is so popular?
Well for one we can point to several different elements of the Captain America Comic Book series that make it unique. One of those elements is Steve Rogers himself. He is unique not only because he is the most recent Captain America, but because of how he was inspired. In the comics, Rogers was an Air Force fighter pilot during World War II, and was shot down while flying his fighter plane. After that he was seriously injured, and now is scarred and bald, wearing a captain's cap.
Cap is a strong symbol of America, and in the early part of the comic books he is often times the only person besides America that can put out a flame with a match. This has roots in early America's history. It became a symbolism that America was going to fight against the Germans, and that was going to win, even though everyone else thought otherwise.
Another thing that the Captain America Comic Book series is known for is the super strength that Cap has. Early on in the comic book series Cap was known to have literally taken a punch to the face from someone extremely powerful. Afterward he was left with broken bones, and a very large bruise. However, in the next few issues of the Captain America Comic Book series, Cap was given a time machine, and was given the ability to punch people out of the time stream. He uses this ability to beat up Electro and Bucky, who are two of the smartest men in the Marvel Universe.
In the most recent Captain America Comic Book, written by Steve Wacker, Cap is given super strength again, and he no longer uses his mind to battle against villains. Instead, he prefers to throw a punch. After a brief fight with Cap, Bucky is hit in the head with a truck, and although he survives, his mind is never the same. Due to the brain damage, Cap doesn't remember much of the fight, and Bucky's death causes Cap to go into a coma, and never comes back out. Eventually, though, after some time has passed, Steve Wacker decides it is time for Cap to get back into action, and the third Captain America Comic Book was written.
Unlike the previous two comics, this one doesn't have a time limit. Instead, it was decided that Cap needed to get back into action because the world needed him. He is, essentially, given a second chance at life, and as a result the story delves into Cap's mind as well. This book is a fantastic Captain America Graphic Novel, and I recommend it highly to people who like Captain America, or to those who only know the comic book by name.
There are a lot of great comics that feature Cap besides this one, but I feel that this one is the best known comic book version of the character. Not only is it a fantastic graphic novel, it is also a fantastic book. The only problem is that I always forget to save my comics, which is why I am such a sucker for the new Captain America Graphic Novels from Image Comics.
The next Captain America Comic Book should come out sometime in 2021. In the meantime, you can always check out some Captain America online web sites. While they don't always have the current Captain America, they do have a lot of great pictures. You can even purchase some of my favorite Captain America covers. You can buy any of them, but the ones that I like the most are the ones that feature Steve Jobs, Apple, and the golden retriever.
