'Captain America' Characters' Evolution From The '40s To 'Winter Soldier' (1940 comic to 2014)

While Star Spangled Avenger is considered a Classic - see the how the hero and supporting cast has been interpreted over the ages in comics in this great chart posted at MTV!

My, how times have changed. Remember the time when Bucky was Captain America, the Falcon wore what was essentially a red wrestling suit and Cap donned all black? Neither do we, so thank god for our new infographic charting the evolution in the looks of Captain America, Bucky, the Black Widow, the Falcon and Nick Fury, all the way from the inception of the comics in 1940 to this weekend's release of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier".

Check out the timeline below, created by Old Red Jalopy, and click to enlarge. (source:

With the release of "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" (I've already seen it and I do recommend it!), it's a good time as any to look at the evolution of Captain America as well as the characters featured in the movie. If you haven't seen the movie and don't want to know who the characters are (but if you are a Marvel comics / Captain America fan, then you already know), stop reading right now! If you don't think this is a SPOILER in any way and you already know what's going on, then read on :)
