Captain America is one of the most recognizable characters in the comic book world today. He is a fighter for the oppressed, believer in freedom and a man of the people. He is strong, fast and agile. He is highly intelligent and is also considered a great tactician and leader.
So how did he come to be?
In the 1940’s a teenage art student by the name of Steve Rogers tries to enlist in the army. But he doesn’t pass as fit. Poor scrawny Steve is then approached by an army officer with the chance of serving the army and his country in some way after all, by taking part in Operation: Rebirth, a secret project to create super soldiers. Steve accepts and after some hard training, is both injected and given a serum orally, then bombarded with rays to kick-start the chemicals swirling around in his body. His intelligence is heightened and his physiology is altered drastically.
The man who created the 'Super Soldier' serum is assassinated and it is decided that Steve Rogers will become America’s own symbol. He is given a code name; ‘Captain America’. Equipped with a bullet proof shield (later upgraded with another much better one!) and clothed in a colourful costume inspired by the American flag, he begins to cut his own swathe through the forces of oppression.
So who will play this artist turned national hero?
