Continue your Marvel Year of the Shield collection by securing this new Funko Pop! Marvel: Year of The Shield – Captain America Through The Ages 5-Pack Funko Pop! Vinyl Figures – Amazon Exclusive.
Captain America (aka Steven Rogers) is one of the best-known characters in the world of superhero comics and popular culture in general, and, just like that, he has been with us for eighty years.
No. 1 of the Captain America series appeared on American newsstands in March 1941. It had been created by Joe Simon and cartoonist Jack Kirby, and its cover showed a muscular masked man who, with his suit full of stars and stripes and his trusty shield, delivered a direct right to the jaw of Adolf Hitler himself.
This first issue sold over a million copies! If you’re an admirer of the classics, then this Captain America collection Funko set just might be for you!
As part of the new collectible series Marvel Year of the Shield, Captain America Through The Ages 5-Pack Funko Pop! Vinyl Figures is now available for pre-order at the links below (click to jump!)
The very origin of Captain America already said enough about him: Steve Rogers was a kid from Brooklyn who tried to enlist in the army because of his commitment to his country but was rejected due to his poor physical condition.
However, his courage, kindness, and dedication caught the attention of a group of scientists who chose him as a candidate to be the first super soldier in history by injecting him with a special serum.
While it is true that what ‘ratifies’ Steve as a hero is the result of exposure to this serum (superhuman strength, great reflexes, feline agility, etc.), his new abilities are but a consequence of the values he already had. In other words, Steve is as important or more important than the Captain.
All the changes and versions show that Captain America is the fruit of his time. What time? Whatever time it is.
He is a character who has constantly adapted to each moment according to what society was demanding. Although this has happened with almost all comic characters, it is more evident with Captain America due to his historical nature.
But there is something that has not changed in Captain America, and that is his role as a symbol, his most primal essence.
Steve Rogers is not a symbol of the United States of World War II but the United States as such, of those values that they consider inherent to their country since the signing of the Declaration of Independence in 1776.
Captain America is the best version of the human being, both physically and mentally, and therefore represents the best possible version of society, the one to which we should aspire.
Flags, colors, and patriotic poses are mere paraphernalia. What allows Cap to throw his shield is the strength of his heart.
