    One of the superhero costume changes that I’ve enjoyed witnessing has been most recent: Captain America. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate the iconic value of the original especially the obvious symbolism of him in the Star-Spangled Banner suit punching Hitler, which is a very quintessential image. However, I don’t think that version of the costume would be of any help to Captain Rogers today during covert military operations; attempting to lurk in the shadows with a brightly colored suit would be futile. The contemporary design, to me, is more becoming a soldier, more practical. The patriotic symbolism is still evident in the updated suit, just not as pronounced, which again is quite logical for espionage work. Captain America is an essential character not just for the sake of the Avengers, but for the Marvel Universe, as well, so I’ve enjoyed seeing him receive a long-overdue updated costume that didn’t belie his contemporary significance.
