My problem isn't so much with our country, but the patriotic hero that represents our failed economic society... I don't know too much about the comic, only what I have read on wiki. But I bring this up cause I am kinda a lil obsessed with him right now. I was thinkin, what comic hasn't been made yet, I landed on him, as the early film flopped. I found out a few days ago they are making a movie in 2011, well, I am just putting together in my head a story/plot idea and some design concepts as that's one movie I really wouldn't want to make, but if I had to, how would I make it cool and get myself to believe in this and accept it as real and not over the top, Iron Man/Hulk style. (just some iron man stuff was too far out there. The Hulk, all of it)
I'm redesigning his costume as all marvel costumes are super crappy. (except spidey) Captain America is one of the worst costumes that follows the DC Batman/Superman cookie cutters, underwear on the outside, freak show costumes. The costume needs to be wicked! (Hollywood can screw up the costume like they do most things, like, the Hulk, X-men costumes, GI Joe costumes, ect. ect. I also think the story needs to be upgraded slightly and changed regardless of the origin. I hate the idea of, it was an experiment gone bad, now he has super powers. Blah, Marvel has some good stuff, but most of there character origins seem to be the same unrealistic crap! (all accept X-men) But I haven't read all there stories, so... I think it will be interesting to see whenever it comes out, and I can look back at my stuff and compare what I had to what they have.
Question, why in the world does he have those stupid lil wings on the side of his head? Those are the FIRST thing to go!!! Followed by the pirate boots and gloves... then the color pattern has to change!
As well, the ridiculous A on his forehead!!!
Plus, I think his suit should be much more practical, kinda like the new batman suit, not patriotic tights/or rubber. Rather a suit for war, as he would probably be one of hundreds of US soldiers genetically manipulated for war. Not just the one sick brave lil volunteer, crappy... I will post what I have when it develops, first thing I'll do, is make the shield
EDIT: Also, if he is for America, he should fight our central governments corruption, that's where the war on terror starts, not outside, but from within our nation!
