Okay, we can bemoan the straight-to-video 1990 movie, but it’s not like Captain America’s stint on television in the 1970’s was any better. Reb Brown starred as the Sentinel of Liberty in a pair of made-for-TV projects that are mostly memorable for his motorcycle and that awful costume complete with helmet. I’d like to talk with the guy who thought what would really make Cap cool was to turn him into Evil Knievel. Also, who knew that ol’ Cap was bionic (listen in at 1:43)?
The 70’s weren’t kind to Captain America
