Captain America was Marvel third super-hero, but the first to gain his own self title comic back when the company was know as Timely. Created by writer Joe Simon and legendary artist Jack Kirby, Captain America was the hero people needed for the hard times of World War II.

Steve Rogers was a weak, skinny and sickly person from Brooklyn during the depression. When WWII broke out, he tried to join the army but was refused because of his height and weight. However Prof. Abraham Erskine saw something special in him and recruited him for the Project: Rebirth program. Using the Super-Soldier serum, Rogers was transformed into a man of peek physical fitness. He was suppose to be the first in a long line of  Super-Soldier, but Erskine, who was the only one who knew the formula, was killed by a Nazi spy. After avenging Erskine, Rogers was given a uniform and became Captain America, a symbol of America fight against the Nazi.

Cap would fight throughout the wars beside his young partner Bucky, Nick Fury and his Howling Commandos and help set up the team of Invaders with the original Human Torch, his sidekick Toro and Namor the Sub-mariner. At the end of the war, in a attempt to stop Baron Zemo , he jumped onto a drone plane but was thrown off after it exploded into the Artic sea, where his body was preserved in ice thanks to his super-soldier formula. Decades later, the Avengers found him and he awoke in a new time. With most of his friends and family dead, he joined the Avengers and quickly became the heart of the team.

Cap was part of the very first series of Marvel Legends and while he has had a few figures throughout the years, it wasn’t really until his first MCU movie that the character exploded with figures. While he has a few costumes left to be made (or remade as is the case), he is the closest to have his wardrobe complete of the Big 3 of the Avengers.


First Appearance

Recommend Figure: Hasbro Marvel Legends Brood Queen Wave First Appearance Captain America

  • Background:

    • This is the costume that Captain America first wore way back in 1941. The cover itself, with him punching Hilter, cause quite a stir back in the day, as America wasn’t involved in WWII at the time and most were thinking they might side with the Nazi. Timely got death treat and everything. However, they got the backing of the Mayor of New York, who had guards posted at the building to protect the offices. But that didn’t stop Cap from being one of Timely’s most successful comics at the time.
  • Why you need it for your collection?:

    • This figure was part of ML Dark time but the figure actually truely represents the art style of the time. I say if you absolutely Cap or First Appearance figures, then this is a must. Otherwise, it can be skipped.
  • Does it need a remake?:

    • I would like to see Hasbro remake this on the new Cap-Wolf build, maybe as part of a Invaders box set. But there is no rush.


Recommend Figure: Hasbro Walmart Exclusive Marvel Legends 80th Anniversary Captain America Or Marvel Legends 20th Anniversary Captain America

  • Background:
    • After a now debunked publisher accuse Timely of steeling their design for the Shield, Cap was given a newer circular shield and a new uniform. This is the design he used throughout his long career, with some people also wearing it during the time he was frozen. Many artists have design it differently, drawing him with or without the chain mail design or with pouches and pockets, which ever they decide is easier to draw.
  • Why you need it for your collection?:
    • Not only is the recommend figure the one I think you should get, it is the one Cap figure you have to have. It is the best version of Cap to date. As for which one, it all depends on whether your want a more classic coloring (the 20th) or modern (the 80th).
  • Does it need a remake?:
    • No.

The Captain

Recommend Figure: Hasbro Marvel Legends Avengers’ Controller Wave US Agent

  • Background:
    • When Cap was forced to give up the Captain America Identity by the Commission of Superhuman Activities, who made John Walker he new Cap, Steve Rogers gave up being a hero for a while. However he was later persuaded by his friends to continue. He was given a new shield by Tony Stark and a new uniform taken the name the Captain. After fighting with John Walkers, he returned to being Captain America while John Walker became the US Agent.
  • Why you need it for your collection?:
    • This figure will mostly be for the US Agent character. However, if you want all the Cap costumes, then this could be added to your collection as that.
  • Does it need a remake?:
    • No.


Recommend Figure: Hasbro Marvel Legends Captain America: Civil War Red Onslaught wave Captain America (also known as the Cap-Wolf figure)

  • Background:

    • In a story that involved searching for John Jameson (ManWolf) and Diamond, Cap was transformed into a werewolf. While the story was considered campy at the time it quickly became a cult classic. Sam Wilson recently also became a wolf man.
  • Why you need it for your collection?:

    • Since it the same figure as the Classic version, you will more then likely be getting it anyway. You could use this as that figure if you wanted something new, (using older figures as a classic Cap), I recommend getting 2 so you can have 1 classic and one Cap-Wolf.
  • Does it need a remake?:

    • No. While it is nowhere near an absolute perfect version, this was mainly done as a nice nod to fans of this story.

Secret War

Recommend Figure: Hasbro Marvel Legends Captain America: Civil War Wave 3 / Abomination wave Secret War Captain America

  • Background:

    • Captain America was part of a secret strike team set up by Nick Fury to assassinate the then new ruler of Latveria, who he believed was preparing for war with the US. Once the mission failed, he wiped the memories of those involved. Later that ruler came back and attacked all involved, which lead to Nick Fury going underground.
  • Why you need it for your collection?:

    • Unless you have to have every Cap, then this one could be skipped. The shield effect is nice but the figure is worthless without the remaining members of the team.
  • Does it need a remake?:

    • No. Not a bad figure, just not worth redoing something so obscure.

Commander Rogers

Recommend Figure: Hasbro Marvel Legends Terrax Wave Commander Rogers

  • Background:

    • Cap had just returned from the dead and after Dark Reign was made head of Shield. Since Bucky was Captain America then, he took up this costume instead choosing to go by his civilian name. This is the costume he wear when someone else is Cap, and is also worn by Nick Fury Jr.
  • Why you need it for your collection?:

    • I say that this figure is needed for your Cap Collection and also your Secret Avengers collection. I find it too tall though.
  • Does it need a remake?:

    • I would like to see Hasbro redo this costume on a better build (Cap-Wolf or Spider-UK). It should also come with Nick Fury Jr and Old Man Roger Head swap.

Marvel Now

Recommend Figure: Hasbro Marvel Legends Captain America: Winter Solder Mandroid Wave Marvel Now Captain America

  • Background:

    • After Bucky was thought to have died during the Fear Itself storyline and Steve had gone through the Dimension Z storyline, Steve got a new costume. This one is based on his classic version made into a more modern take on it.
  • Why you need it for your collection?:

    • This one could be added to your Cap collection as well as your various Marvel Now Avengers teams like the Uncanny Avengers. It is also the most modern version out so it you want to have a modern costume then this is it.
  • Does it need a remake?:

    • No. Kinda short lived and the figure is fine as it is.


Recommend Figure:  Hasbro Walmart Exclusive Marvel Legends Venomized Captain America

  • Background:
    • In the lead up to the Venom movie, Marvel launched a series of variant covers that turned many of the heroes into what they called Venomized form. This is Cap’s. I don’t know if it was in the comics but I’m putting it here to make things easier.
  • Why you need it for your collection?:
    • This figure is mainly for hardcore Cap fans or if you want to build a Venomverse shelf. However, Cap was very different in that story line but this will make a nice replacement. If you have no interest in those then skip.
  • Does it need a remake?:
    • No.


Below you will find a gallery of suits that still need to be made. I have included what I think are the possibilities of them being made. Note that these are my personal opinions and not fact. Please let me know if I have missed anything.
