Captain America (1979)
Sentinel of Liberty
Avengers – Some Assembly Required Series Episode 2
The only thing this has in common with the comic character is the name…
In the 1940’s Captain America was born with a punch to Hitler’s jaw. In the 60’s he was thawed out again to help lead Marvel’s super-team The Avengers. And in the 70’s, when superhero shows Wonder Woman and The Incredible Hulk ruled the airwaves, Captain America was updated once again for a new generation. Here Steve Rodgers is a former Marine who wants nothing more than to drive up the California coast and draw, but a diabolical plot from evil oil tycoon Lou Brackett puts Steve’s life in danger. With a clear shield, a boss motocross bike, and a groovy outfit Captain America is called to action. Is this a Captain that kids of the 70’s could get behind? Listen to Stuart, Jakob, and Arnie to find out!
