3) CAPTAIN AMERICA

Captain-America-Wilson
Specifically, Captain America Sam Wilson, picking up where the indisposed Steve Rogers fell off.  With Captain America’s high pop-culture profile, you could keep Rogers in the story somehow (the “suddenly aged” trick felt like a cheap ploy in comics, but there are other options) but take Sam’s different skill sets and perspective and there’s room for a lot of different stories, even addressing issues of race and class through the lens of superheroic escapism.

About Author

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.

  1. Gonna vote for Best Tiger, guns n tactics easy and inexpensive. The bigger the hero, the cheaper the effects. And probably all shot in the dark for the stupid edgy Dark knight effect.
