For Marvel’s 75th Anniversary of Steve Rogers (Captain America), Comicave Studios designed a bronze statue to immortalize Chris Evans’ Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) portrayal of Captain America. The statue is set to be erected in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Sunset Park.  However, before the statue is permanently installed in its new home, it will be unveiled at SDCC (San Diego Comic-Con) before going on a mini-tour of Brooklyn.  
Fans can join in on this celebration by having their picture taken with the immortalized Captain America at Comic-Con, when the statue heads to Prospect Park on August 10.  Following a celebratory screening of Captain America: Civil War, the statue will be displayed outside the Barclays Center before making its way to Sunset Park in October.

A special, tie-in comic (pictured above) will also mark the introduction of this real-life statue into the Marvel continuity.  The comic will be made available to fans at SDCC and special Captain America events in the near future.

Before I became a Geek Under Grace I was a student of Journalism and have always aspired to write for a gaming and geek culture publication. I am truly blessed to have found an outlet to reach not only thousands of fans, but those who may not have yet found Christ. My favorite genre of games is third-person/sandbox games. I like the freedom that they allow both in gameplay and in scale and they just seem less bland and limited than more linear titles. I still have a soft spot for RPG games but I now enjoy JRPGs far less than I did as a child because they are still basically the exact same as they always were, with a few exceptions of course. I also enjoy playing more tactical third-person multiplayer shooters or first-person shooters that try to shake things up. I absolutely hate games based on WWII or Vietnam as those settings and those types of gameplay have been done to death. Though I am not opposed to a future Assassin's Creed title being set during one of these wars. I also typically tend to stay away from MOBA's as they are notorious for abusive, and generally unsavory online communities. My favorite game of all time is Chrono Trigger, which ironically enough is a JRPG but its one that I consider untouchable in quality. The runner-up for my favorite game of all time would be Star Fox 64.
