Captain America Facts & Trivia
The shield that Captain America uses in the early stages of the film is similar to the one used in the first issue of the Captain America comic. The shield was changed in the comics after publisher of the comic character “The Shield” had complained that Captain America was too similar to their character.
The Captain America comic book shown in the movies bears the cover of the actual Captain America #1 released in 1941.
The comic version of Captain America’s shield is most commonly said to be a mixture of Vibranium and Adamantium. Vibranium = the shield’s ability to absorb vibrations; Adamantium = the shield’s (near) invincibility. However, because Adamantium is part of the X-Men/Wolverine mythos, which film rights are owned by a different studio, the Adamantium part had to be left out of this version.
Throughout the film, Steve uses a side arm while fighting Skull’s forces. In the comics, he used a side arm until realizing that his new shield could be used as a weapon, by throwing it, and it subsequently replaces the side arm.
