SPOILER: Pics Reveal Superhero Cameo In Captain America: TFA

<font color= red>SPOILER:</font> Pics Reveal Superhero Cameo In <i>Captain America: TFA</i>

As we already knew, there is a cameo by a certain super hero in Captain America. But it comes in a form you may not expect! If you haven't seen the movie and don't mind being spoiled click for some low res pics..

This is a scene from the world's fair where Steve tried to reenlist for the 5th time. As you can see the "cameo" is actually the original Human Torch, an android also known as John Hammond. Here is some info on the character..

The "Human" Torch was actually an android created by scientist Phineas Horton. He possessed the ability to surround himself with fire and control flames. In his earliest appearances, he was portrayed as a science fiction monstrosity, but quickly became a hero. The Human Torch was one of Timely Comics' three signature characters, along with Captain America and Namor the Sub-Mariner. Like many superheroes, the Human Torch fell into obscurity by the 1950s. In 1961, Marvel recycled his name and powers into a new, unrelated Human Torch, a member of the Fantastic Four (who actually was human). Unlike Captain America and the Sub-Mariner, the original Human Torch has had only a small presence in the post-1950s Marvel comic books and is closely associated with the Golden Age.

It's the Original Human Torch,look at the name that appears in the last pic,Phineas Hortonwas the creator of the androidd,who became known as Human Torch.

Phineas Horton created the Original Human Torch, therefore through the process of deduction, tis the Torch himself.
marvel72 - 7/25/2011, 6:11 AM

MIIIK - 7/25/2011, 6:16 AM
That's him alright! It just screams 10 tons of badass.

TheOverlord - 7/25/2011, 6:16 AM
Hooray! I always thought the original HT was better than Johnny Storm.
BIGBMH - 7/25/2011, 6:20 AM
It would've been funny to see Steve stop there, look in and then shake his head like "That's just ridiculous."

CraptainAmerica - 7/25/2011, 7:00 AM
Schaweet! I love a big fat android shaped easter egg!

Looks like something from 'Lars and the real girl' though
Superheromoviefan - 7/25/2011, 7:05 AM
I just saw the movie. It's the best CBM of the year. I would give it 8.6 out of 10.
redsoxdude - 7/25/2011, 7:18 AM
Johan, i'm an inbreed redneck and saw it in the article.

I freaking loved the movie btw. Thoroughly enjoyed it. I remember this part and i remember seeing Synthetic but i couldn't catching anything else. Thanks for the screen grabs.

@ ror

thanks, i was getting tired of all the people saying there was no Human Torch cameo. but it shouldn't be surprising since tons of people on this site don't really know comics.

@ BigBMH

that wouldn't really have been funny because thats not the Human Torch that Chris Evans played...
JosePetrelli12 - 7/25/2011, 7:29 AM
@BIGBMH - Hell yeah!!
Tymminator - 7/25/2011, 7:34 AM
When I saw this at the theater, I really geeked out.
mikesinuman - 7/25/2011, 7:35 AM

PhilKee - 7/25/2011, 7:59 AM
why does it look like he is screaming?
UncleDrew - 7/25/2011, 8:07 AM
That's sick
longbowhunter - 7/25/2011, 8:12 AM
I picked up on that.
kevberg - 7/25/2011, 8:23 AM
Spotted this easy. :) @ TEA--good job easily explaining the history, Kudos.

Loved the movie , but not for the reasons others might. Really enjoyed Steve's reasoning for wanting to join. His heart. Evans really brought it to life and kids today could do good to learn a lot from what he says. I liked TLJ and Haley Atwell , they were really fun and the whole thing was good fun.

The action was solid and the fights were good ,although , as much I liked Hugo Weaving as RS, the script could have gave a bit more evil or dangerous edge.

My REAL one problem with the film was that , while I can understand you don't want Cap defeating Hitler and winning the war by himself ( because its disrespectful) It would have been nice to have had him address the the subject of the Jews and the Holocaust at some point. I do realize this is nicely set up as happening ALONG SIDE the events of WW2, it would have really brought home the darkness of the fight.

Man....I have to see this at least a couple more times

Let's get an Invaders movie with:
The Original Human Torch
The Black Captain America
Miss America
Union Jack
US Agent
CorndogBurglar - 7/25/2011, 8:54 AM
my only complaint with the movie is that I wanted to see Cap doing more acrobatic type things. They showed him jump high and far a couple times, but when he was fighting, i expected it to be more like Blonskey in Incredible Hulk. The way he was doing flips things.

thats just me though.
jjmeylar - 7/25/2011, 9:17 AM
I saw him and totally geeked out.
TheMyth - 7/25/2011, 9:39 AM
I spotted this right away. I had an old comic fan sitting next to me in the theater (which was sold out and half my friends that went had to see a different showing) and he leaned over to ask me what was so special about that egg that I pointed at with such obvious joy. I told him and got kudos from an ole boy comic lover I'd never met ;P

Spiderboy, you are scum. Anyone who would STEAL a CBM online doesn't deserve to share this site with the rest of us.

this completely went over my head when i saw it. its funny cause i walked out and said to my friend that it would have been cool if this had been two movies and at some point we see the invaders. im glad it was the way it was, but it would have been cool to see namor on screen as well, hopefully he will tie into the marvel universe at some point.
JackMan - 7/25/2011, 10:56 AM
His name is "Jim Hammond" not "John Hammond" like the caption says.

Unlike the comics, Roger's received no formal training because the Army
(Col Phillips) looked at the Supersoldier program as a failure after the death of Dr.Esrkine. This was due to the original goal of mass producing Supersoldiers was rendered impossible.It was up to Rogers to prove his worth to the Army with his rescue mission of Bucky and the Howlers.This made more sense then the comics which had the Army turn him into a superhero from day one which kind of defeats the purpose of the program.The Army's first reaction,to have Rogers serve out the war being used to recreate the Supersoldier formula was much more logical.In the film,It was a Politician, in the form of the Senator who first grasped the symbolic importance of Cap to the homefront and it was the fact that Senator served on the committee that controlled funding for the SSR, that gave him the juice to get Roger's sent to the USO. As far as Strategic training,remember Rogers has a photographic memory (his ability to recall Hydra base locations after glancing at a wall map.)Nothing say's Rogers could not have been reading the works of great military leaders of history while on tour in the belief/hope that a combat assignment would present itself(sort of like how General Patton read all the time between assignments) The hand to hand combat training could have been picked up by Rogers hitting up Boxer's and Army Judo instructors ether with the USO tour, or with some of the Army units they visited.Rogers could have been reading the US Army field manual(which would have been issued to him among the books he was pulling out of his footlocker) for tactical skills.As far as the flips go,that can be chalked up to Rogers being green in the howlers rescue,the train fight being in an enclosed space and fact Rogers was focused on catching up to the Red Skull's bomber and was just trying to jump over the Skull's men during the final battle.
