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!

Overview
An artist, Steve Rogers, is nearly murdered by spies, looking for his late father's national secrets. He is saved during surgery when a secret formula is injected into him; this serum not only heals him but also gives him fantastic strength and lightning reflexes. To help him solve the mystery behind his father’s murder and bring those guilty to justice, a government agency equips him with a special motorcycle loaded with gadgets and an indestructible shield. Now armed, he battles against the nation's enemies as the Sentinel of Liberty, Captain America.
