Captain America’s shield is one of the most recognizable symbols to come out of the MCU. Here’s every shield that Steve Rogers used in the franchise.
Captain America’s shield is one of the most significant symbols to come out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe – but Steve Rogers carried more than one shield throughout his run. Tony Stark had his suit, Thor had his hammer, and Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) had the shield. It wasn’t just used as a form of protection, but also as a powerful weapon. Throughout the MCU, Steve obtained several shields during his time as Captain America but one reigned supreme.
Steve rarely went into battle without a shield. The super soldier treated the item as if it was another limb. Like Thor’s hammer, Steve only felt comfortable carrying the shield if he felt worthy enough. When veering away from the Captain America name for a brief time, Steve left his shield behind since the moniker and weapon went hand-in-hand.
