You cannot fail to have noticed the that Captain America, the comic book superhero has now hit the movie screen with the release of the "Captain America: First Avenger" movie.
On a side note it's great to know that some of the scenes for Captain America were shot in my home city of Manchester here in the UK!
There is no doubt that Captain America Costumes are going to be incredibly popular this Halloween!
It's a great costume for the adults and the kids of both sexes and for all Americans it's both patriotic and a superhero costume all in one!
In Captain America we find Steve Rogers feeling very frustrated at being unable to fight for his country in World War II. He takes part in an experiment which boosts his strength to the maximum possible for any human.
While Captain America does not have the "superpowers" we often associate with superheros he does have amazing strength and of course his famous indestructible shield.
