Happy 4th of July, everyone. Independence Day is one of the American holidays that offers the chance to post concept artwork for my favorite super hero, Captain America. While my choice of favorite's might be questionable due to his costume and goody-two-shoe manner, I'll explain why and offer some remarks about Cap Am.

WHY HE'S MY FAVORITE:
-before he was Captain America, he was a shy artist
-his shield is an inspired weapon/armor combination
-his bravery and will to stand up again after failure time and time again

While it is undeniable that his original costume design (shield excluded) is patriotic, it is also cheese. Captain Ameica's SHIELD navy blue uniform is very tasteful and would do well as his default. To me, the shield completes the uniforms flag theme with economy and imagination. The jacket, gloves, pants, helmet and boots make up the stars and stipes, while the shield represents the stripes and ties it all together with the star in the middle.

Another thought, this time about the helmet. Where are the wings? Decals are not enough, and no matter how well Marvel Studios lights their shots, Cap Am's iconic profile has changed. Where once his silhouette was instantly recognizable, almost mythic in the sense of Hermes or Mercury, now we are looking at the silhouette of Just Some Guy.

"Dear Marvel Studios,
Please bring back Captain America's Wings.
Thanks,

a fan"

Enjoy this Photoshop hack job and a rendering of the kind of helmet they should make for Cap Am.

regards,

A good read from 1901. Reminds us to watch what we think.

Excerpt from article on the origin and definition of the #ScienceFantasy genre:
"A working definition of science fantasy could be fiction that blends advanced technology with supernatural magic. These aspects are opposites; one assumes a radically developed science, while the other defies the understanding of science. Crossing these styles allows for more freedom of expression on a wider scope."
