On this page you will find some very nice Captain America coloring pages, but you will also get to learn a lot about Captain America, because besides from the coloring pages we also have some very interesting information about him!

Captain America is a fictional character, a superhero that appears in comic books published by Marvel Comics. We have a few other coloring pages from the Marvel comics, but on this page you will find coloring pages of Captain America. The character first appeared in Captain America Comics #1 (March 1941), from Marvel Comics 1940s predecessor, Timely Comics, and was created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby. Over the years, an estimated 210 million copies of Captain America comic books have been sold in a total of 75 countries. For nearly all of the characters publication history Captain America was the alter ego of Steve Rogers, a sickly young man who was enhanced to the peak of human perfection by an experimental serum in order to aid the United States war effort. Captain America wears a costume that bears an American flag motif, and is armed with an indestructible shield that can be thrown as a weapon, as you can see him wearing in our Captain America coloring pages.

An intentionally patriotic creation who was often depicted fighting the Axis powers of World War II, Captain America was Timely Comics most popular character during the wartime period. After the war ended, the characters popularity waned and he disappeared by the 1950s aside from an ill-fated revival in 1953. Captain America was reintroduced during the Silver Age of comics when he was revived from suspended animation by the superhero team the Avengers in The Avengers #4 (March 1964). Since then, Captain America has often led the team, as well as starring in his own series. Steve Rogers was apparently killed in Captain America vol. 5, #25 (March 2007), although he was later revealed to be alive; in any case, the Captain America series continues publication with Rogers former sidekick, James Bucky Barnes, having taken up the mantle with Rogers insisting he continue in that capacity at least for now.
