-What can I say about Cap? I'm CANADIAN, and he's one of my favourite Marvel characters ever. Guy's pure bad-ass, and in spite of being one of the poster boys for Dorky Comic Book Moralistic Superheroes, gets constant cred from even other tough guys. He's survived virtually every era of comics (except the 50s), and they still can't get rid of him. Though they started to write him like an exact rip-off of his Ultimate Cap version before he died, his book was still a top seller. There's just nobody who better represents the ideals of the Marvel Universe (Spider-Man better embodies the concepts- the "Everyman" nature of realistic heroes with problems, as opposed to DC's more "Symbolic" characters) or of what America SHOULD be. He's proud, noble and kind, but not afraid to kick some SERIOUS ass if required.
-Guys like Cap are what PL 11 and 12 were made for. There's NO WAY this guy could be a 'mere' PC build and be remotely accurate to what the comics show. As a solo hero, he needs a reasonable amount of Skillmonkey points. He's a Melee God, necessitating tons of attack Feats as well. His physical attributes are already noted as being the maximum a human could ever get, so there's that, PLUS the fact that he's no dummy (Int 14), is REALLY hard to fool (Wis 20), and has the charisma to lead the entire Marvel Universe into battle against even cosmic beings (Cha 20, but I could go even higher if not for fears of stat-dumping). Like a lot of others, I build the Super-Soldier Serum as having minor superhuman effects, making Cap slightly faster, stronger and able to recover better than a normal human, but not to crazy levels.
-He spends more points of FEATS than most people do on POWERS, and rightly so: Nobody is considered a better fighter than him until they go into the ranks of Shang-Chi and Iron Fist, both of whom are packing ridiculous +16 bonuses. Cap is +15 and able to modify nearly every single PL cap he has- making him hit at +20 accuracy if necessary, or +14 maximum damage if Power Attacking.
-Cap's Shield is always a bit of a toughie to stat up, as CAP is the one who's good with it, despite it boosting so many of his attributes, and he's concievably as good with any disc-like weapon. Taliesin for example has statted up a version that uses the Shield Toss as a base Power requiring a Shield Device to work, but I wanted to go a little simpler with the common Device, hand-waving any questions about it (it's not like Cap uses a trash can lid as easily, for example, or as often). The Shield, at heart, has a "Bash" power (+9 Damage, for when he wants to smack some dude in the face with it). Then a "Blocking" Power, giving him the Shield effect, plus two Feats that specialize in avoiding Area Attacks and attacks in-close (Cap has survived the Torch's NOVA FLAME just by hiding behind the thing- a literal impossibility, but the Shield is just THAT DAMN GOOD, I guess- he made his Reflex Save and took no damage
). It helps him become Immovable at the same time.
-And finally we get to the "Blast" effect. It's only 2 ranks, but with a Mighty boost able to make it a +7 weapon in the right hands (like Cap's), so someone like The Wasp wouldn't be able to throw it as hard. It's Thrown 5 to allow for fifty-foot tosses. Then it gains the Shapeable Area effect, as Cap is able to bounce it off of several guys at once if necessary, no matter where they're standing in the room. At Touch Range, it's effectively a Blast dependent on the strength of the wielder. Then it gets Ricochet 2 for when he bounces it off of things and hits guys he can't see or the like, and Homing for when he 'misses' on purpose, beaning the target in the back of the head on the run-through on the following round. It has a Drawback that if you miss (or your opponent makes a special attack to 'grab' it), you lose it. I figure that's good for -2 pp.
-Finally, we come to the Shield's own Feats. You get Indestructible for obvious reasons (I think that if the Living Tribunal ever destroyed the entire universe, you'd get a white page with a little round shield at the centre of it), but the Benefit is it's own deal. Pretty much every time in comics somebody whips out Captain America's Shield, whether it's Cap himself, Bucky-Cap, The Red Skull, Norman Osborn, etc., everyone stops and goes "Woah" and immediately starts listening. I figure that's good enough for a Benefit Feat. Everyone knows your Big Man On Campus when you're toting THAT bastard around, that's for sure.
