For 75 years now, the simple red, white and blue shield has been alongside Captain America. Super-Soldier Steve Rogers, the First Avenger, was encased in arctic ice before being rediscovered in the modern era. A stunning specimen, the shield is constructed in the series from a Vibranium-metal alloy that has never been duplicated, making it virtually indestructible.
A wonder of engineering, the shield has great aerodynamic properties; it is able to slice through the air with minimal wind resistance and deflection of path. Its overall resilience, combined with its natural concentric design, enable it to rebound from objects with minimal loss of angular momentum and absorb massive impacts without sustaining damage.
