He’s the first Avenger, and ironically not the first avenger that I body paint(Iron Man took that one), but I felt like it as time to finally do a Captain America body paint.
He’s actually a scrawny fine arts nerd… gotta start somewhere right? Well, living in the era of the Great Depression, he was appalled by what the Nazi’s were doing and decided to enlist. That didn’t turn out the way he thought it would. He actually tried a few times to get enlisted, but kept getting denied because he couldn’t pass the physical part.
Insert Mad scientist here!
A little Super Soldier Serum (how do you like that alliteration ;)) later, and one massive growth spurt, and we bring you Captain America!! The movies actually stayed somewhat close to Captain America’s story, granted he and Bucky didn’t meet until after Steve was Captain America, and Bucky was Cap’s side kick. They also ignored a whole bunch of other characters like android Human Torch, Toro, and Namor. Before the Avengers there was the Invaders, but that’s a story for another day.
Bucky actually wasn’t kidnapped until after Captain America plummeted into the Atlantic. He was there helping Captain America defuse the bomb on the drone, but that didn’t exactly go to plan lol. Bucky got blown off, but survived; and because of the Super Soldier Serum, Cap lived, but was frozen. Win some, ya lose some I guess.
Now that’s a little background on Captain America, but how do I feel about him? He’s never been my favorite super hero. Neither is Superman. My beef with them is that they’re shown in a light where they’re so perfect, they don’t have flaws, and if they do, it’s a minor thing. I like my super heroes to be a little flawed, to have struggles that have nothing to do with fighting an enemy. What can I say? I like the emo heroes lol. So why do a Captain America Body Paint then? Because I want to get all the Avengers, and even though he’s not my favorite, he does have a pretty cool story 😉
How do you feel about Captain America? Would you try out this Captain America Body paint? Who’s you favorite Hero?
