COMICS: Captain America Gets A New Look In The Ultimate Universe

A lot of comic book fans have been saying that Captain America needs a new look, and while the 616 version of the character is still in his classic costume, the Ultimate version of the iconic superhero has been given a pretty drastic redesign. Hit the jump to check it out!

Captain America has been absent from the Ultimate Universe since Peter Parker's death last year, but he'll be back this July in Ultimate Comics Ultimates #13. And as you can see from the Billy Tan's artwork below, he'll have a whole new look too. New writer Sam Humphries had this to say to IGN Comics about bringing him back after a fairly lengthy absence. "Out there in the wilderness, he's been thinking about all the big issues, like, what am I doing acting like a superhero? What are my duties in the 21st century? Am I still a soldier? Why did I survive decades encased in ice? For what purpose? Am I living up to that purpose? At the same time, while he was absent from duty on his little vision quest, America fell apart. That's got to weigh heavily on a man who wears the stars and stripes."

Those stars and stripes obviously play a pivotal role in Cap's suit, although this is perhaps the most drastic redesign the character has ever had in any universe. Tan added, "It’s my design based on Sam's descriptions -- WWII roots, Iraq War-style chest armor, cargo pants, boots... a very military look in Cap's way. He probably has to hand paint the 'A' on the helmet himself since he doesn't have the luxury of having S.H.I.E.L.D. painting him a perfect one." What do you think of this new look? Would you like to see something similar adapted to film or the regular line of Marvel Comics? Sound off with your thoughts in the usual place!
