Brian Bloom, who provides the voice of Captain America in Disney XD's The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, appreciates his character's role in the Avengers throughout their history.

"What's cool about playing Captain America is that he's been incredibly recognizable straight through the rest of the creation and kind of evolution of the Avengers," Bloom said. "Cap has been there in a very kind of patriarchal role. To be saved by the Avengers and then to be team leader of the Avengers, without being able to fly or see through anything, is a pretty unique position.

"I think it's great to have a super-hero who isn't rooted only in what he can do physically. Cap brings the team together with that purity of purpose, his kind of steady hand. Seeing as he comes from another time, I think he kind of brings the group together a little bit by reminding them that it's not always technology and not everything comes from the future. I think thats where he and Tony, he and Iron Man, bump heads a little bit. Sometimes, Cap's old school and Tony's all about new school. But together, they're unstoppable."

Bloom is also providing Captain America's voice for the Marvel vs. Capcom 3: The Fate of Two Worlds video game. In addition to his voiceover work, he has dozens of live-action credits, including this year's The A-Team movie.

But Captain America has a special place in his resume.

"The 1966 Captain America show when I was a kid in the late 70s on a local channel that I saw, I was mesmerized by it," Bloom said. "I thought it was the coolest thing in the world."

Marvel Comics has announced Age Of X Universe, a two-issue project that launches in March.

Here's how Marvel describes the book:

"In the Age Of X, the mutants of the world never banded together to form the X-Men. But what of the Earth's other heroes? In a world without X-Men...a world without hope, what side do the Earth's Mightiest stand on? See the story of Marvel's greatest heroes through new eyes as the future of mankind is decided in Age Of X Universe #1!"

The book is written by Simon Spurrier, with art by Khoi Pham.
