Captain America Costumes
One of the things that the superhero genre does best is show a regular person who can rise to the station of a hero for those that need them. That's why we just can't get enough of our favorite comic book heroes. Here we are, generally regular folks, we assume, looking at a world that just needs a little nudge to help justice prevail, keep the baddies from causing all sorts of trouble, and inspire the rest of the world to stand up for what is right!
Of all the heroes out there, Captain America is probably the one that gets it the most! Starting out as a shrimpy 98-pound guy that had enough heart to stand up against the dread forces of the Axis during World War II, Steve Rogers was ready to put his life on the line! But, well, things hardly went ideal for him right from the start. Laughed out of the recruitment office, our little buddy Rogers was hardly going to be winning any wars... or so they thought! That's when Dr. Ersine caught sight of him and realized that he would make the perfect soldier. That's because Ersine knew that it was more than just muscles that made the man.
Well, sure, we suppose a mysterious irradiated serum probably could help out, too! With this, little Steve Rogers would soon become the pinnacle of human evolution. Stronger and faster than any regular human could hope to be (though still requiring a regular exercise routine), Steve was also bright and charismatic. He'd rise to become an icon for heroes throughout the United States even before he'd go to take down the Red Skull and end the threat he created for the rest of the world.
Unfortunately, the alchemical formulae for the super-soldier serum was lost when Ersine was slain. (The Red Skull and HYDRA could hardly risk any other folks being powerful enough to stop them, after all.) That means that the future for Super-Soldiers is pretty limited and that Steve Rogers is going to be the only one who can really stand up for us. Of course, his inspiration can keep us all going even in the moments that seem the worst!
That's where these Captain America costumes come into play! Do you think that a serum and the intentions to do good would be enough? No! Steve Rogers wouldn't become Captain America until he wore the red, white, blue, and showed himself to be the shining star of the country. (And the matching shield certainly went a long way to finish off that stellar look!)
Now, you can join in the same ambitions with one of our Captain America costumes. You can dress up in a muscular, padded costume and look like you're benefiting from the serum or you can equip the shield that serves as a symbol for the rest of us. Or, if you like, you can even wear a Captain America-themed suit and feel that the hero is there within you even while you're busy at the job! No matter what form of heroics you want to achieve, Captain America is right there in your heart... though these costumes might help bring it out even more!
