Captain Escudo (Captain Shield) is a superhero based on the National Shield of Ecuador. If you still don’t know him, this is the moment to learn about him because we need one like him in these times of crisis.
This character, created by Zonacuario, fights against the evils that afflict our society; Capi, as he likes to be called, along with a condor as his sidekick who helps in the most difficult situations, fight against the League of Evil led by Corruptus, the main antagonist of the stories and the biggest problem in our country.
Under his lead, this villain has characters like Suxio, Wasteful, Violentor and all the evils you can imagine. So far Captain has fought 40 individuals who are part of the Trap Club.
The striking thing about this individual is that we can all have his super powers, and his audience, mainly children, can aspire to fight evil with integrity, honesty and desire to work for the society, as Captain Escudo does.
The Captain saw the light in the 9th issue of Elé! magazine in September of 2006. At the beginning it was a just a short story on one page which turned into a multi-page comic book and it even got published in newspapers.
The evolution of Capitan’s aesthetic has developed towards the graphic trends of international comics, which makes him more identifiable with Latin American audiences. The latest version of the Captain is the base of a new animated proposal that seeks to get the Captain out of the pages to fight in a television series. Children and adolescents want to see Capi move and also have him printed in their accessories. In the quest to consolidate Captain Escudo as an emblematic character of Latin America, the interaction with the children of Ecuador has resulted in an essential source for the development of stories, since it is children who suggest problems they recognize in their environment and from which stories are constructed.
A fun way to identify the evils of our society and the values that are needed to combat them.
