The hero known as Captain America was born when young Steve Rogers, a veritable weakling who wished to serve in the military, was injected with a secret serum, giving him super human abilities. Captain America thus made his debut in Marvel’s Captain America Comics #1 in 1941. This patriotic super hero was released when World War II was raging in Europe, one year prior to the United State’s entry into the war. In the first issue, the character was depicted as punching German leader Adolf Hitler.
Captain America and other superheroes were popular during the war years of the 1940s, but waned thereafter. “The Cap” was revived in 1964 with a new line of comic books. Since that time, he has also starred in animated television series and feature films, going on to become the leader of the superhero squad known as the Avengers. The most recent revival in film began in 2011 with the release of Captain America: The First Avenger.

Step-by-Step Instructions for Drawing Captain America
Enclose a curved shape at the bottom of the face using two long, curved lines. Allow the lines to meet in a point. This outlines the chin strap of the helmet.
Using a series of curved and straight lines, detail the helmet. The lines should cross just above the eyes, then ascend towards the back of the helmet.
Outline each eye using a straight line and several curved lines. Draw several curved lines within the ear, giving it detail.
Extend a line downward from the chin strap, outlining the neck. Outline the collar of the garment, as well as the neck of the shirt, using curved lines. A curved line across the neck of the shirt gives the detail of folded fabric.
Add detail by drawing a curved line across the chin strap and the strap along the side of the face. Draw a curved line between the chin strap and the chin.
