Captain America is one of the most recognizable superheroes in the world, with his American flag motif costume and his vibranium-adamantium shield. Born from cartoonists Joe Simon and Jack Kirby’s wish to create a patriotic hero during World War II, Captain America has almost continuously been present in print and other media since his introduction in 1940.
Naturally, the Cap has developed a lot over the past 75 years. From the early days when he was nothing more than a pencil sketch on paper to today’s multimillion dollar movie franchise, Captain America is an ever-changing American superhero.
