The history of the First Avenger is explored in this hour long documentary. Beginning with his creation prior to the start of World War II with a controversial cover featuring Cap slugging Adolph Hitler, at the time a foreign leader with whom the United States was not yet at war, the show goes all the way through his current portrayal in the wildly popular series of Marvel movies. Along the way, many of the creators of the Captain's comic book adventures weigh in, dissecting the changes the character has undergone through the years and how those changes have paralleled changes happening in the nation at large. Particularly fun are the clips from Captain America's lesser known live action depictions, including his notable turn as the first comic book hero ever to appear on film in a series of serial adventures in the early 1940's through a pair of made for television movies in the 1970's featuring a hero who seems to spend more time riding a motorcycle than slinging a shield.
