The Evolution of Captain America’s Costume in Comics and Film - Infographic
I’ve got an infographic here for all you Captain America fans that shows us the evolution of Cap's costume over the past 75 years in comics and film. The graphic comes from Halloweencostumes.com and it’s cool to see all of the different designs the character has had over the years.
Captain America has worn an incredible number of costumes since the character debuted 75 years ago. These costumes typically alternated between patriotic suits and more modern military uniforms, with some notable exceptions. Of course, his appearance was ultimately in the hands of the artists and writers who worked on the Captain America and The Avengers comic book titles, often for extended periods of time. These included Joe Simon and Jack Kirby, Steve Englehart and Sal Buscema, and Mark Gruenwald, among others. In this infographic, we show how Captain America’s costume has evolved in comics, television, and film. We primarily consider the main universe or continuity, though we do briefly look at The Ultimates alternate universe because of its influences on later appearances.
