List Rules Decide on the best versions and interpretations of Captain America.

Captain America is one of the most prolific and long-running comic book heroes in history, both as a solo act and as a charter member of Marvel's The Avengers. As such, there are many different variations of the character and dozens of formats the character has been utilized in. Be it video games, films, animated series, or alternate versions of the man himself in comic books, Captain America is in SO many forms of pop culture, in one way or another.

We've decided to compile some of our favorites here. Do you like to play as Cap in tactical multiplayer gameplay like Ultimate Alliance, or do you like playing as him in beat-em-ups like Marvel Vs. Capcom 3? Is the current Marvel NOW run of Captain America your favorite or is the classic golden age Captain America comics more your style? Are you a Steve Rogers as Captain America fan or is Bucky your Cap?

Here's the chance to see where it all lines up. What are the greatest interpretations of Captain America ever? Vote up your favorites!
