Single women always have their eye out for the “one.” You know the one that will sweep them off their feet, walk them down the aisle, curl their toes and make all their dreams come true. Every woman already knows what qualities she wants the one to have; a pure heart, sensitive feelings, witty humor, athletic abilities, protective stance, america shirts and chiseled abs – much like a superhero.
What woman, single or taken, wouldn’t want a superhero husband?! (And wives don’t say you’re already married to a superhero – please.) Superheroes possess special powers, are adored by the public, put their lives in danger to save others and are immortalized by comic books and movies. Yup, superheroes are the cream of the crop when it comes to husband material.
There are a slew of superheroes, making it difficult to find the perfect husband. There’s the ever so popular Son of Krypton, Superman, but one look at Kryptonite and he goes down like a sack of potatoes. Plus there’s that whole thing with Lois Lane. Just like Superman and Lois, there’s no doubt Catwoman has had her claws in Batman, if not, Robin definitely has. Then there’s the multi-billionaire Iron Man, player, the Incredible Hulk, bad temper or Spiderman, ewe spider webs. That leaves us with one truly perfect superhero husband, Captain America.
The dreamy superhero, alter ego of Steven Rogers, stands 6’2″ with blonde hair and hypnotizing blue eyes that are complemented by his signature blue suit with a United States flag motif. He first appeared in Captain America Comics #1 in 1941 where he was injected with the “super soldier serum” making him the peak of human perfection – his best asset. Being the peak of human perfection entails a sculpted body and even more impressive intelligence.
Captain America rose to fame by aiding the U.S. in its fight against the Axis powers of World War II and continues to be an ally of the armed forces and a hero today. Since its debut, the comic book series, published by Marvel, has sold an estimated 210 million copies in 75 countries according to the 2007 article “Death to ‘America’: Comic book hero killed off” on MSNBC’s Web site.
