Captain America's shield is a protective device/weapon in the Marvel Universe belonging to Captain America.


The First ShieldEdit

When Steve Rogers first started fighting evil as Captain America, in addition to his uniform he was given a triangular steel shield to use both for offence and defence.  Captain fought with it as his primary weapon for a time, until an adventure in the nation of Wakanda had him reward with a piece of vibranium, one of the rarest and most unusual metals in the world.
