Marvel’s British Division has published on its official Instagram account a curious and complete infographic with the complete chronology of Captain America’s shield, with the most important moments through which Steve Rogers’ famous and powerful vibranium shield has passed. It is a graph that you can see in its entirety below that collects and controls the key points that said shield passed throughout the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The history of Captain America’s shield
This curious infographic shows the main appearances of the shield from its beginnings to its current state, by the hand of Sam Wilson, the new Captain America after the events of the Falcon and Winter Soldier series. So the story of Cap’s shield begins in the hands of Howard Stark after he made it with vibranium and handed it over to Steve Rogers for WWII.
After decades frozen with Rogers, Shield returns to action in Avengers, not without reference to the time jump in Avengers Endgame in which Captain America faces off. Soon after, Tony Stark would upgrade the armor with electromagnetic capabilities. Mention is also made of the confiscation of the shield and the subsequent delivery by Agent 13, the theft of Spider-Man in Civil War or the scratch of Black Panther. Although the shield would go through its most delicate phase when Thanos broke it in half.
It was not until the end of Endgame that an old Steve Rogers would appear to deliver his shield to Sam Wilson (with a new design included), which would lead to the plot of Falcon and the Winter Soldier, passing into the hands of John Walker and a once again find himself in charge of Falcon as the new Captain America. What new adventures does Cap’s shield contain in the already announced Captain America 4?
