Mugen: Captain America

Captain America is so iconic in my mind it is hard to remember how cool he really is. He is in peak human condition and a highly skilled martial artist. I am amazed at how Steve Rogers has been depicted over the years. He is intelligent and compassionate. He is able to inspire others. He seems everything that Superman is said to be. I need to look more into the Civil War storyline because in it was get to see Cap's character juxtaposed against Iron Man. Cap did not support registering super humans and curtailing their autonomy. I came down on Cap's side personally. I don't like the idea of Cap's assassination I hope that Marvel will reverse this soon. Only Steve Rogers should be Captain America. Here is my comparison table:

Captain America Mugen Versions





Infinity Mugen Team9

Here are the video tests I made of the versions of Captain America I found. Spidermew's version is a little different visually because it is based on how Captain America looked in storyline in the late 90s during a storyline: Heroes Reborn. In which he, Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, and the Fantastic Four sacrificed themselves to stop Onslaught. Franklin Richards, son of the Invisible Woman and Mr. Fantastic, put them into a pocket universe to preserve their lives. Spidermew's version is very fun to use but his moves are very different from the version in Capcom's Marvel Superheroes. Mystik Blaze's Captain America is almost a complete port from Capcom's Marvel Superheroes game. Nearly the same and one of my favorite characters from that game. The Infinity Mugen Team version is great. It's a lot like Mystik's but more flashy. In the videos, I called Spidermew's version "Rob Liefield style" because he was the artist of that storyline.
