American Captain is a decorative logo-based typeface created to be used for Captain America, the famous American comic books superhero character.

More About Captain America Franchise
The character was created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby, as a gallant and patriotic soldier who often fights the Axis powers of the Second World War. He can be seen donning a costume inspired by the American flag and carrying an indestructible shield that he often unleashes as a projectile upon his opponents.
Captain America made his debut appearance in Captain America Comic #1 by Timely Comics, whose cover is dated March 1941. Timely Comics is Marvel Comics’ predecessor.
As his initial release coincided with World War II, Captain America became the most iconic super soldier character during the 1940s. However, his popularity faded away after the war ended, so much that the Captain America comic series was discontinued in 1950.
But in 1964, Marvel Comics revived Captain America, pulling the legend back from imminent oblivion. The character has since remained one of the most talked-about superheroes and arguably the most iconic super soldier comic book hero of all time. He has also made his way into the cinematic world, appearing in several films and television series.
