Bustin'!

I'd like to take a moment to share a memory of Captain America. In his life he stood as a living symbol of freedom and courage. And when it came to rockin' the body to the b-beat, he was down by law.

Captain America: Soldier. Leader. Hero. Breaker.

He teamed up with Tron as The White Shadow in Breakin' III: For America.

Cap was all things to everyone.
Cap didn't just embody "the" American dream, he embodied every American dream.
Cap would've won on American Idol and Dancing with the Stars.
Also, I heard he could outrun a horse.

"Sure, kid, all us inner city black guys are natural breakers"?

Wow. Who wrote this, Dave Sim? John Byrne? Some comic book writers never cease to amaze me.

Perhaps we can look forward to another scene like this in Marvel's upcoming Civil War II: Electric Boogaloo.

The writer was Mark Gruenwald. The panel is from Captain America #317 from 1986.

I like that Cap is engaging Hawkeye in conversation while he throws down.

Wow, this was right before I started reading Cap.
Cap sure did some embarassing stuff over the years. Just wait until you get to the issue where he and Paladin are in drag so they can get onto an all-supervillainess ocean cruise.

Is that for real? And what issue was it in?

Oh it's real. Captain America #317.

The new Captain America will be Vibe.
