By now, you’ve no doubt been aware of this summer’s most anticipated superhero blockbuster movie, The Avengers, featuring Marvel superheroes including The Hulk, Thor, Ironman, Hawkeye, Black Widow and Captain America. Meanwhile, on the other side of the planet, China decides to join the fun, with their first ever China superhero: Captain China. If the name doesn’t already hint at anything, the pictures should certainly give it away. Yes, the Chinese superhero is undeniably a knockoff of Captain America. Some of Captain China’s equipment include a vintage pistol (manufactured by the Soviet Communist Party), a not-so-indestructible shield (made in the USA). A Chinese company has just released the first series of comics, and story has it that when President Obama visited China, Captain China heroicly protected his safety. The backstory? Captain China was frozen during Mao Zedong’s era, then “reborn” in the future. Want more? You can actually pick up a copy of the comic on Amazon’s Kindle. In the meantime, here’s a 12 page preview to keep you entertained.
