With Captain America: Winter Soldier coming out next week, I thought it would be fun to look at some of the Star Spangled Avenger’s WTF? moments.
#4 HEROES REBORN
Many will, of course, point to Man Boobs or the Wonder Woman looking logo on Caps forehead as possible the biggest WTF? moment in Captain America’s amazing comic book career. You might just be right but let’s take a quick look at these other truly WTF? moments.
#3 NO ONE DRAWS CAPTAIN AMERICA BETTER THAN—CAPTAIN AMERICA?
This strange WTF moment has Steve Rogers drawing a comic based on himself. Because he doesn’t want to be a jobless bum. Fair enough. What does he do? He goes to Marvel and shows off his portfolio. Hmmm,… I know a lot of artists who wish getting a job at Marvel was that easy. Hey, Captain America, leave the Fourth Wall breaking to characters like Deadpool and Spider-Man. Next.
#2 GONE TO THE WOLVES!
I gotta admit, Cap as a wolf is a pretty neat idea and I owned all but the last issue of Man and Wolf. Looking back on those issues it’s kinda like giving Spider-man four extra arms: cool, but unnecessary.
#1 THAT’S NOT A LADY….
Finally (thank gawd!), the number one WTF?—Captain America has ACTUALLY crossed dressed more than once….
Okay, first, I know that’s not Captain America; it’s the very cool American Dream, AKA Shannon Carter.
Back in the early days, Captain America actually had a secret identity and was an actual Captain in the U.S. Army. Whenever he wanted to do the hero thing he had to sneak out of camp and he did this by dressing up as—yep, you guessed it—a woman. Then there was the time he disguised himself as a female villain to take down a boa load of “other” lady villains.
