I never got the feeling they were mocking the design that much.  I love my Star Spangled man (with a plan)... and I love him just as much without the war film props... just as a straight up Cap figure.  I'd love to get a 98 lbs weakling version of Steve too!!  I just loved the first half of CP:TFA before it went all war montage on us.  That just seemed like Captain America to me.... then he threw guys out of planes... Cap don't kill (cept Baron Blood and even that tore him up inside)

Mocking him just enough, then?

Hahahaha.  Mocking him just enough.

In the film... I felt that Steve disliked the costume because it represented his failure to make it to the war.  It wasn't until he broke his chains and saved the POWs that he saw the power of the symbolism.  That was how I saw it.

I didn't like that his ears are not outside his cowl... but I see that as a tip of the cap to the old Captain America serials back in the day.

To me though, this is the most comics accurate version of Captain America in 6th scale.

It sounds like you have a deep appreciationfor Captain America's character and the portrayal in "Captain America: TheFirst Avenger"! Many fans share your sentiment about enjoying thecharacter's origin and development, especially before the film delves deeperinto wartime action sequences. Steve Rogers' transformation from a frail youngman to a superheroic figure is indeed a pivotal and iconic part of his story.The exploration of his morality and principles, including his aversion tokilling, adds a layer of depth that resonates with many fans of the character.What aspects of Cap's character and storyline resonate with you the most?



Thank you

Steve Diaz:

I have a deep appreciation for that character for sure. Its an odd person for a Canadian to identify with so much.  I like the Man out of time aspect... I love anything WWII... so that hits on a couple levels.  PLUS... the moral code and the Charles Atlas like little guy fighting for what is right... That is why I love Captain America and I think they got that part of him right at the beginning of the movie.  Like I said above, I disliked him killing Hydra soldiers... I also liked that he went to war and didn't kill anyone and he was skilled enough to do that.  That frail Steve Rogers reminds me of a childhood friend... his big mouth and moral code got him in a lot of trouble.

So while John Byrne sees filmmakers disrespecting his work and especially Joe Simon & Jack Kirby's work... on the costume... I see the best version of the character of Steve Rogers to hit the screen.  Being old enough to remember the serials and the 70s TV movies and the defunts late 80s early 90s movie version.

My favourite parts of the movie are him jumping on the grenade to protect those who will be the sucess of the program... or him gutting out the extreme pain to complete the experiment... even if it was gonna kill him... he was doing his part.
