Admittedly, I never felt too outraged over the ending of last summer’s ‘Man of Steel.’ (Yes, there will be major spoilers ahead.) The complaints over Superman breaking the neck of his foe were certainly valid – therefore changing the very definition of the character – but it didn’t affect my enjoyment of the film. That changed after seeing ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier.’

The Comic That Secretly Influences 'Captain America 2' (And May Pave the Way For Marvel's Entire Future)

As its title implies, 'Captain America 2' is largely inspired by Ed Brubaker and artist Steve Epting's celebrated, Eisner-award winning comic book storyline "The Winter Soldier." Although ultimately very different from what transpires in the big screen version, the broad strokes remain the same: Steve Rogers finds himself hunting, and being hunted by, a ruthless assassin who may or may not be his supposedly dead best friend, Bucky Barnes.
The movie uses Brubaker's Captain America run to fuel the first half of the film and provide an antagonist who can serve as an emotionally hard-hitting threat to the star-spangled Avenger. However, while it's the most obvious, it's not the only Marvel comic run heavily quoted in the film. There's another acclaimed comic series that not only informs the biggest twists of 'Captain America 2,' but suggests what crazy new direction the Marvel cinematic universe is heading toward on both the big and small screens.

Why Captain America is Now Marvel's Greatest Superhero

There's no getting around it: Iron Man is the most popular of the Avengers. Just look at the box office. 'Iron Man' and 'Iron Man 2' both broke $300 million at the domestic box office and 'Iron Man 3' passed $400 million. Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark didn't just put Marvel Studios on the map, he's pretty much kept it on the map. It's safe to say that 'The Avengers' did as well as it did because Iron Man was front and center on all of the posters. People love Iron Man and that's okay.
But, while he's the most popular, he's not the best Marvel cinematic superhero. That honor belongs to Captain America.

When Chris Evans went on 'The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon' to plug his work in 'Captain America: The Winter Soldier,' the last thing he probably expected was to be forced into a twisted take on the 'Newlywed Game' with his brother, Scott. But Evans played along, sharing a few hilarious stories and putting his brotherly bond to the test on live television!

There are two reasons why superheroes tend to change their costumes every time a sequel rolls around: (A) it gives the filmmakers a chance to put their own unique stamp on them, and (B) it means they can release a new action figure. Thanks to video from the set of 'The Avengers 2,' we've already seen what Hawkeye's new outfit looks like and received our first look at the costumes for the Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, but today brings a look at Captain America's new getup.
