  1. 1. SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE, BUILDING AND DESIGN THE DESIGN SCHOOL FOUNDATION IN NATURAL BUILD ENVIRONMENT NAME: HERBERT LIEW FUNG ZHEAN STUDENT ID NO: 0316133 FILMS SELECTED: THE CAPTAIN AMERICA 2; IRONMAN 3 WORD COUNT: 688 ENGLISH 2 (ENGL 0205) WRITTEN ASSIGNMENT 1: COMPARE – CONTRAST ESSAY LECTURER: CASSANDRA WIJESURIA SUBMISSION DATE: 18th APRIL 2014
  2. 2. The superhero films “Captain America” and “Ironman” was both published by Company Marvel Comics. These two films have differences as they are different superhero in it. Captain America and Ironman have their own method to keep the safety of the citizen. The characteristic of the superhero I’m going to talk about is the strength of the heros, design of heros outfit, weapon that they use and villain that they face. All superhero got they own strong point. For Captain America, he is the top out of human physical capabilities and conditioning without being considered godlike. He is fastest, strongest, most durable, most healthy and the most physically able human being. He doesn’t have missle, energy blast, teleportation and etc those kind of power. Tony the main character of the films created The Mark 42. The Mark 42 has intelligent technology, it connect with Tony nervous system so that he will able to control it. The suit has incredible damage resistance due to the advanced Titanium alloy and its perforated fiberglass-ceramic frame. The armour incorporates an adaptive pressure modification system which regulates internal strength, giving it underwater and sub-orbit capability. Design of the superhero outfit is important as it show the momentum of the heros. Captain America outfit are blue in color with white and red strip in the middle part. There also a white star in the chest and an A letter on his mask. Overall look for Captain America show that he is muscular and strong physically without relying a lot of technology. Mark 42 has a unique and special design, it does not feature the usual Red and Gold platings, but instead has darker hue for the red platings and a lighter color for the golden platings. Its appearance and design is reversed from the original design of the former armours. Whereas the areas with Red platings from it's former armours are now covered with the gold ones and the same style goes with the Red plates of the armour. Light Gold is the dominant color of this armour. It has a circular-shaped Unibeam with a white glow, and has a thinner appearance than a regular Iron Man Armour. (Wikia, 2014) Through the films I can know what kind of weapon that the heroes use. The weapon that Captain America uses is the Captain America's
  3. 3. shield. It is a fictional item, the primary defensive and offensive piece of equipment. He is seldom seen without it. The circular shield is a concavo- convex metal disc approximately 2.5 feet (0.76 m) in diameter, it is virtually indestructible and has remained his most constant shield over the decades. (Unknown, 2014) The Mark 42 has compact missile system and it also has more conventional rocket systems. The suit feature some of the most advanced repulsion systems of all of his previous designs, utilizing a plasmic-based photon projector system, which captures plasma and electrons in a electromagnetic field, firing it in a beam-like shape with high penetrating capability and immense strength. You will never know how strong the superhero if you doesn’t have super villain. In the film “Captain America 2”, the Winter Soldier is the super villain, he’s original name is Bucky. He once is Captain America partner during The World War 2. During that time, he was announced dead during mission, but was later reprogrammed as a Soviet Assassin, helping the NAZI group to own the world. (Soldier, S., 2014) The villain of “Iron Man 3” is The Mandarin, its original name is Aldrich Killian. He got own an organization A.I.M. In A.I.M he got a team that research and develops Extremis Virus due to he is scientific genius. He also got the knowledge of martial arts so that he can protect himself. (Marvel Cinematic Universe. 2014) His aim is to kill Tony Stark in this film. In conclusion, the superhero I choose is the ironman because the technology of the suit Mark 42 is so advanced. I found it is much cooler than Captain America because with Mark 42 I can fly anywhere I want. Throughout all the differences of the hero characteristic of these heroes, they got the same aim, the aim to protect and keep the safety of the world.
