The comic also epitomised everything that Hitler stood against. America did not laugh in the face of a frail, but determined man who desperately wanted to join the army, something Hitler would have despised, they evolved him into a super soldier. The soldier was not armed with fearsome weapons of mass destruction, and was not a war-mongering lunatic, instead he had a shield, an emblem and a symbol of safety and protection. The shield was symbolic of the fact that Captain America, who represented America as a whole was simply defending itself against the evil of Hitler.
It is not only an elaborate Frisbee that makes Captain America the ultimate leader and soldier. He has mastered, developed and refined his own unique fighting style that incorporates several different forms of martial arts that makes him quite a formidable opponent. Steve Rogers was able to maintain his physique by undergoing an intense training regime that made him one of the best hand to hand fighters in the world.
The super soldier serum really is sophisticated equipment and it saves Steve Rogers life. The serum is highly sophisticated and it allows the body to make more and more of it so that the natural physical condition is maintained and does not diminish over time. On top of this, the reason that Captain America survives in the ice is because the serum allows the body to enter a trance mode, where it does not function properly but is still alive before being frozen in a block of ice, later to be discovered and reused to help save the world.
Captain America first grabbed the attention of the world around the time of world war II. The super hero becomes a super soldier that leads the American army into several battles in world war II. The release of the comic, which was coincidentally around the time of world war II saw the character become one of the most popular of all Marvel comic book characters ( ), before the comics stopped being produced 9 years later.
