Puerto Rican Captain America. With a gun.

gimmedaloot: Puerto Rican Captain America. With a gun.

That can't be right. I thought they all wanted to cut us.

The important thing is that his ripped ab muscles are well defined in his new suit so that a new generation of children can have access to homoerotica.

Well, technically PR is considered part of North America.

Does the suit have built-in nipples?

I have a Captain America action figure that is older than me. And it has a bulge.

I think the bigger question is "Why is there a star shaped bullseye over his heart?"

Real men show you where to shoot them, if you can live long enough to get the shot off.

RIP Captain America.

A Puerto Rican Captain America? Cool now we can do West Side Story with the Avenger as the Sharks and the Justice League as the Jets.

They should just make USAgent the new Captain America.

Aww, man.. where's espiaboricua?
 
2007-12-05 03:49:58 PM  
Instead of a gun he should be holding an ice pick.
 
2007-12-05 03:50:06 PM  
If he were really Puerto Rican then he'd be shown holding a zip-gun
 
2007-12-05 03:50:08 PM  
He has a GUN?!?! What the fark? Guns are for pussies!

/Just ask Brock Sampson

Viva el Capitan America!

You guys didn't think this through too good, did you?

If it was good enough for grandpa, it's good enough for junior!

Farked?
 
2007-12-05 03:52:32 PM  
Agree, the gun has to go. He's better than that.
 
2007-12-05 03:52:39 PM  
Farked.
But that's ok, they revealed this design ages ago.

Does this mean they get state's rights now?
 
2007-12-05 03:53:18 PM  
Wow this is old news...

"Old news is fun" pic needed STAT.

That said, Marvel comics is shot to shiat and nothing will save them from the pool of suck they've become.
 
2007-12-05 03:54:44 PM  
I hardly see how Puerto Ricans count as human beings, much less Americans, but maybe that's just me.

/i keed, i keed
//i theenk

ultraholland: Does this mean they get state's rights now?

Of course, they have. They've get to keep claiming independence and pride for their nation, and then demand things from the government. Mmm..pride.
 
2007-12-05 03:55:10 PM  
A gun? They couldn't at least make it a crossbow or something?
 
2007-12-05 03:56:51 PM  
I guess the new Captain America smells like someone who takes cologne baths.
 
2007-12-05 03:57:15 PM  
CAPTOWNDDDDDDDD!!!!!!

//HAHA

I mean, he was a US Army soldier, and that /is/ a standard issue (ca. WWII, any way) Colt 1911....
 
2007-12-05 03:58:14 PM  
that is one of the ugliest costumes i have ever seen.

He's Puerto Rican.. that is his Credit Card
 
2007-12-05 03:58:57 PM  
What's all this fuss I hear about making Puerto Rico a steak? Let me warn all of you: if you make Puerto Rick a steak, the next thing they'll want is a baked potato-with sour cream and chives and little bacon bits. And then they'll probably want a salad bar! Why, they'll be lined up for miles!
 
2007-12-05 03:59:24 PM  
I am Puerto Rican and I am getting a kick out these replies!

//No, seriously! I was born and raised in San Juan.
//That design is the ugliest thing since Superman Red and Blue!
 
2007-12-05 03:59:40 PM  
how about a pic, the link is broken.
 
2007-12-05 03:59:50 PM  
Does he have those pointy cockroach stomper shoes on?
 
2007-12-05 03:59:53 PM  
Let this be a lesson to everyone: YOU DON'T FARK WITH JACK KIRBY.

Where is the spraypaint can that he uses to receipts, then?
 
2007-12-05 04:01:09 PM  
It's the code of the superhero: if you bring a gun, you're not playing fair. It's just dickish.

So I guess that the new Captain America is both a dick and a pussy.

/I thought Iron Man was the new Captain America, anyway. In spirit.
 
2007-12-05 04:04:06 PM  
Wake me up when they revive Steve Rogers

Pvt. Party: Agree, the gun has to go. He's better than that.

Well see the shield is cool and all for defense (yeah he throws it some times as a weapon, but...), but I think they were going for a more retro 1940s look. That damn well better be a .45 Colt M1911 pistol if so. Captain America doesn't carry a pussy 9 mm.
 
2007-12-05 04:05:26 PM  
Isn't Capt. America dead, and this is actually the Punisher donning the Cap's cowl? Not really up on my comic history, just thought I saw that posted here before.

Yellowbeard: I mean, he was a US Army soldier, and that /is/ a standard issue (ca. WWII, any way) Colt 1911...

I dunno. Used to be he just threw his shield at guys.

I suppose a crossbow is just as crazy as a gun.
 
2007-12-05 04:07:16 PM  
a)Captain America has always carried a gun. He was introduced in the 40s as a super soldier and has never had anything against using firearms. After all, what's more american than guns?

b) Fark Captain America. I've been into comics since I was 5 and I've always hated him.

c) Now comics are homoerotic? Can someone give me a list of the few remaining things left that aren't considered teh ghey?
 
2007-12-05 04:07:33 PM  
They need to add a V-Neck, some chest hair, and some gold chains and it would be perfect.

/ Should have made it a Puerto Rican chick, the hot ones are real hot.

Dinosaurs, spaghetti with meatballs and Ragu, calculators and salt water.

I was thinking this too, but the article from Rev. Skarekroe says:

"But what...or who is it? One thing that Marvel makes clear - it's not Steve Rogers. He's still dead."
