hehe, yea without a doubt the big red cheese gets a special place in my comic boxes, and the Ross version payno chose for an example is my favorite rendition. To say I'm stoked to do this one is an understatement :)

Proof that I lack the creative juice: Every idea I think of about an amalgam of these two results in Flash... Nyehehe!

Awesome contest idea. I just spent a little bit working this up and was so excited I had to go ahead and post it. I got a tablet today so I'm trying breaking it in and getting use to it. I might come back to this drawing later. I'm Interested in seeing what everyone comes up with.

@Blizaga101: NICE! I really dig the shield. Even the bolts or what not down the shields edge harken to Marvel's button down shirt. Integrating the star and the lightning bolt is pretty cool too.

@Blizaga101:LOVE IT. LOVE THE FREAKIN' SHIELD. Ooops, caps. On second though, I'll leave the freakin' caps for extra measure. Its really cool

I was gonna say that I'd rather watch a Captain Marvel/ Captain Marvel thread, but I really dug that one, so I take that thought back. The others are pretty good too, but that one is just so well thought out.

@payno: Nice and clean I like it. I love how The American Marvel's helmet is kinda militaristic looking and has the bolts on the side.

@maxicere: Beautiful piece I like the idea of the lightning shield and how it ties into the background.

@maxicere: Love it. The wingtips on the boots are an epic touch

#39 Posted by tonis (6183 posts) - - Show Bio

wow, the designs and renditions for this one are just incredible. Great job coming from everyone. :)

I was having a tough time coming up with something I like for this one. I wanted to capture the iconic manliness of Captain America and at the same time represent the boyish characteristics of Billy.

Meet Steve Batson, a kid who loved his country almost as much as he did comics. During the early days of WW2 his Uncle Sam gave him a very special issue from his collection and told him to guard it for him as he went off to fight the war. A few weeks later Steve received the news his uncle had died in the line of duty. In tears he pulled out the book his uncle had given him to hold and as he began to read it glowed brighter and brighter with each passing page until he reached the end where he felt a clap of thunder and then a bolt of lightning transformed him into the most super soldier of all time... AmeriKID.

Captain Republic!

Young Bucky Baker's fondest wish was to serve his country and fight along-side his dad, but he was far too young to join his service until he ran into Uncle Shazam! who granted him his powers and turned him into Captain Republic!

The American Marvel

In 1941, 15 year old Billy Rogers lied on his application to enlist into the army. Upon being found out he was given a choice, join the Super Soldier program until he was 18 or Juvenile Hall. Billy went into the super soldier program headed by Dr. Arnim Sivanna and Dr C.C. Erskine. Unbeknownst to all involved, Sivanna was a Nazi sympathizer.

The day for the final experiment had come. Billy was placed in the vita-ray machine and given the Marvel formula. He was also placed in a stasis coma for his own protection. Nearing the end, Sivanna and two Nazi spies attempted to steal Erskine’s notes and leave back to the fatherland. An explosion resulted killing Erskine and seemingly, Sivanna. Since Erskine had died and the lab destroyed, the US government was unsure how to bring Billy Rogers around, so his project was placed on watch.

In his own recount, Billy remembers entering a deep sleep and the image of Uncle Sam coming to him. Sam explained that his time was not now, but when tyranny rose it’s evil head, that Billy would be called on to be a shining light amidst the dark cloud of evil. Uncle Sam then departed to Billy the seven virtues of America:

Wisdom of our      Forefathers

Spirit of the           Revolutionaries

Strength of the     Everyman

Stamina of the      Enduring Soul

Courage of             Divine Providence

Power of the         Oath of Allegiance

Speed of                Manifest Destiny

In his time of need, Billy would need to cry “FREEDOM”! and the power of the USA would imbue him.

Scientists are able to revive Billy in 1997, Unfortunately the process was deemed a failure because Billy exhibited no signs of any enhanced physical prowess. The only effect of the procedure it seemed, was that Billy came out a perfectly preserved 15 year old.

It is   the year 1999. A cybernetic terrorist is threatening the world with global shutdown at the dawn of the new millennium.   He claims to be Dr. Arnim Sivanna resurrected in perfected form. With him is two of his grotesque inventions. His own version of the American super soldier, an ex KGB East German named Adam Tvarskitch aka Red Adam. Also was the sentient alien larvae encapsulated in battle armor Mr. MODOK.

Seeing the trio of terror on TV. Billy went to the balcony of his quarters and with a wistful gleam in his eye, he cried “FREEDOM!” Bolts of lightning, red white and blue struck him and he became…..THE AMERICAN MARVEL!
