Hi There! I think Jerry Ordway's POS graphic novel captured the look of Fawcett city & setting perfect. Just a city in today's world, but look almost as if time has stood still. I didn't care for his characterization of Billy as much as I loved Roy Thomas's. Jerry's version was too whiney & too much a brat to me. Roy's seemed more humious & a smart xss. Like I think anybody would be, much less a kid. If we got his powers, we go settle some old sores. Like Jim Carrey's Mask character did in the Mask.I want Cap to be like Superman, but with a boyish charm,& alittle more devilish. Like on setting wrongs done to Billy & others.Like Clark Kent did in the end of Superman II.
I don't want Cap to be the Punisher or Gomer Pyle ethier.Too bad Patrick Warburton of the Tick/Seinfeld is so old. In the mid 90's he would've been perfect for Cap. I vote for a unknown to play Cap. If I wasn't so old I'd love to try out for the role myself. We'll that's just my opion.
