Captain America is an American cartoon character, a superhero who wears a costume in the colors of the flag of the United States. It was created by Jack Kirby and Joe Simon for Timely Publications, a predecessor of what is now Marvel Comics. Captain America first appeared in issue 1 of the Captain America Comics series in 1941. The comic stories, laid out as propaganda during wartime, often allowed Captain America to compete against Nazis, saboteurs and other symbols of the opponents of the war. In later years the stories with Captain America were used by many authors for social criticism, but reception is difficult, especially in Germany. Over the years, characters with different names appeared in Captain America’s costume. The original and best-known figure bears the name Steve Rogers as an alter ego.
Captain America’s shield is the former primary weapon of Captain America. He used the shield for both defense and attack.
The shield was built from vibranium by Howard Stark as a weapon for Steve Rogers during World War II, after using a triangular shield on his first mission. It seemed like the perfect weapon for Steve, even though it was only a prototype. He can aim the shield almost perfectly and throw it so that it flies back to him like a boomerang. The shield was then frozen together with Steve Rogers.
