This Captain America Shield represents an iconic moment in Marvel's history as Capatain America revitalized their comic sales.

The all-American superhero was brought into this world from humble beginnings.

Born as the only child of Joseph and Sara Rogers, Steven Rogers was just an ordinary kid who had a fragile.

He lost his father at an early age and his mother soon followed during his teenage years. Steven took up industrial fine arts before World War II and then decided to enlist in the Army at the onset of the war.

But because of his skinny and frail condition, he was immediately rejected by the military. But all was not lost as n army officer saw Rogers as a prospective test subject for a covert military research project dubbed Operation Rebirth and subsequently offered him another way to serve his country.

After passing a rigorous testing phase, Steve was chosen as the first test subject for the project which aimed to create super soldiers for the battlefield. His body was bombarded with injections of the Super-Soldier serum created by a scientist named Abraham Erskine and was then exposed to bursts of vita-rays to activate the chemicals inside his body.

This process effectively transformed the skinny Rogers into a muscular individual with enhanced reflexes and perfect physiological form. He became the apex of the perfect human specimen - almost superhuman. But not long after the successful experiment, a Nazi infiltrator killed the scientist who had committed to memory the final process in creating the serum.

Thus Rogers was left as the only recipient of the experiment although unknown to him, the Nazi's had developed their own super soldier named the Red Skull who would later become his main nemesis.

The government made Rogers a propaganda figure for America and gave him a uniform to represent the country's colors complete with an indestructible shield made of rare metals as a weapon to fight his enemies.

Thus Captain America was created and became the symbol of American freedom and justice.

As Captain America, he trained in the different military tactics, weaponry, demolition and martial arts; specializing in hand to hand combat.

During the war he served as America's best counter terrorism agent and special operations personnel and succeeded in bringing down Red Skull and the Nazi regime to end the war.

But during the final days Captain America met an unfortunate accident while trying to stop a bomb-loaded drone. He was given up for dead after the plane exploded and caused him to fall into the icy waters of the Arctic.

Several decades later, a new group of superheroes called the Avengers discovered Captain America's body and revived him. Not long after, he adjusted to the modern world and became an integral part of the team, even serving on missions for the national agency called S.H.I.E.L.D. led by his old war buddy named Nick Fury.

During these modern times, Captain America still stood as the champion of American freedom and assumed leadership of the Avengers until the time when he opposed the Superhuman Registration Act which caused civil unrest in America.

For some time, Captain America went underground and became the leader of the Secret Avengers. This group battled their equals until Captain America realized that this war was going nowhere and decided to surrender.

This series of events ultimately led to his death when he was shot outside a New York federal courthouse by a sniper and then from point blank range by a brainwashed woman.

America now weeps for their hero's demise.

Each of Captain America Shields includes a full sized wood display plaque and a hand numbered certificate of authenticity.
