iFanboy's back and they've brought Captain America with them!
If there is one man who you would trust to lead your army against impossible odds, or to find a way to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat, or to punch a Nazi in his stupid face, that one man would be Steve Rogers -- Captain America!
This week Ron, Josh and Conor examine the man who represents the heart of the Marvel Universe, the man who lead The Invaders in World War II, and the man who has come to define The Avengers. And did we mention that he PUNCHED HITLER IN THE FACE?
The heart of the Marvel Universe is found beating inside the chest of Steve Rogers, a scrawny kid from the Lower East Side who through force of will and determination (and a bit of science) became known the world over as Captain America!
What is it about this hero from the past, this man out of time, that commands such respect and admiration? Josh, Ron, and Conor recount Captain America's beginnings and early history and attempt to explain just what it is that's so great about the man inside the red, white and blue costume.
One of Marvel Comics' oldest characters has a rich history of excellent stories and here are some of the guys' favorites!
Everyone gushes over the dynamic action found in the days of Stan Lee & Jack Kirby's bombastic Captain America adventures! THe Red Skull! The Cosmic Cube! Nick Fury! Batroc the Leaper! This era had everything!
Josh and Conor reminisce over the Captain America adventures of the 1980s courtesy, primarily, of Mark Guenwald and Kieron Dwyer. There were side kicks galore and one of the best Captain America stories of all time: Captain America No More!
It may have happened on an asteroid in space, but the grand, cosmic tale known as Infinity Gauntlet contained one of the best Captain America moments of all time!
Ron and Conor explain how Mark Waid and Ron Garney saved Captain America in the bad 1990s, if only temporarily, by bringing Captain America back to basics and showing just why he's the most important person in the Marvel Universe.
The modern era of Marvel has been dominated by Ed Brubaker and Steve Epting's modern take on Captain America that made everyone fall in love with Steve Rogers. And then they killed him. But then Brubaker and Epting did the impossible and brought back Steve's long-thought-dead partner Bucky and made him the new Captain America. And then everyone fell in love with him too. And now Steve is coming back! Egads!
