When Captain America throws  his mighty shield!  All those who chose to oppose the shield must yield!  And it doesn’t matter who’s under the mask, either…  Welcome to Ten Things!

Whooshman-Bicarbonate Films, in conjunction with ‘An Amateur Comics Historian’ and Simon & Kirby, Presents:

TEN CAPTAINS AMERICA (WHO AREN’T STEVE ROGERS!)

10) CAPTAIN AMERICA (Carl Zante)

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture!

And a nice red uniform.

    No Bucky/Winter Soldier run of Cap? Was this due to it being too dark of a run of Cap?
