There are a slew of superheroes, making it difficult to find the perfect husband. There’s the ever so popular Son of Krypton, Superman, but one look at Kryptonite and he goes down like a sack of potatoes. Plus there’s that whole thing with Lois Lane. Just like Superman and Lois, there’s no doubt Catwoman has had her claws in Batman, if not, Robin definitely has. Then there’s the multi-billionaire Iron Man, player, the Incredible Hulk, bad temper or Spiderman, ewe spider webs. That leaves us with one truly perfect superhero husband, Captain America.
The dreamy superhero, alter ego of Steven Rogers, stands 6’2″ with blonde hair and hypnotizing blue eyes that are complemented by his signature blue suit with a United States flag motif. He first appeared in Captain America Comics #1 in 1941 where he was injected with the “super soldier serum” making him the peak of human perfection – his best asset. Being the peak of human perfection entails a sculpted body and even more impressive intelligence.
Captain America rose to fame by aiding the U.S. in its fight against the Axis powers of World War II and continues to be an ally of the armed forces and a hero today. Since its debut, the comic book series, published by Marvel, has sold an estimated 210 million copies in 75 countries according to the 2007 article “Death to ‘America’: Comic book hero killed off” on MSNBC’s Web site.
The very patriotic Mr. Captain America, which would make you Mrs. America if married, is also a member of the superhero team the Avengers. He joined the Avengers during the Silver Age of comics proving his teamwork abilities and leadership skills, only enhancing his peak of human perfection status. Armed with his trusty shield and superhero friends, Captain America continually saves the day.
Captain America is still a popular superhero among comic book fans and will be showcased in a full-feature film set to be released July of this year. The movie focuses on Captain America’s origin and stars Chris Evens along with Samuel L. Jackson and Tommy Lee Jones.
With his handsome looks, incredible body, protective nature, patriotic attitude and upcoming movie there’s no question why Captain America makes the perfect superhero husband.
