Designed as a patriotic supersoldier, the fictional superhero became Timely Comics' most popular superhero during the wartime period. Wearing a costume bearing an American flag motif, Captain America often fought the Axis powers of World War II, using his indestructible shield. Captain America also became the first character to appear outside of comics with the release of the 1944 movie serial, Captain America and has since appeared in several other films including the 2018 Avengers: Infinity War.
