Yes, you can tell Alex Ross is a genius because he's managed to do something even Jack Kirby never could.

Namely, rip off The Shield:

Sorry, did I say "could"? I meant "would".

I wonder if Captain America as he is described, was su[pposed to be a part of General Patton's 3rd Army?  I mean he is supposed to be a military hero from World War II who was fighting Nazis.  He has a big letter "A" on his forehead, which was the symbol for Patton's 3rd Army that fought at the Battle of the Bulge.

Just my thought.

That's what I thought of too, except I couldn't remember the character's name, having only seen him in a compendium of Golden Age covers I have. I can't help thinking that Ross is also rehashing his character design for The Silver Agent in Astro City, what with the guns and all.

I suppose the guns are also a result of the gung-ho, hawkish trend that seems to be pervading many U.S. comics (especially Marvel), which probably reflects of ongoing conflicts; it's almost as if Captain America is returning to his original WW2 roots.

Between the revolution and the firing-squad, there is always time for a glass of champagne.
