It’s hard to believe, but Marvel is celebrating the 75th anniversary of Captain America this year. The iconic superhero has had his ups and downs, but he’s soon coming home to New York as a 13-ft bronze statue.

The statue will be unveiled at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con before making the cross-country trip to live in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park. A dedication ceremony will be held August 10.

The statue, which literally weighs a ton, will bear a quote from Captain America: The First Avenger – “I’m just a kid from Brooklyn” – and will more closely resemble movie Cap than his comic counterpart. It makes sense, as film fans would consider Brooklyn his home even though in the comics, he’s from the Lower East Side.

As the statue makes its way across America, Marvel will keep fans updated on its whereabouts via their social channels like Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. For those who can’t make it to Brooklyn, Comicave Studios will also be selling a limited-edition line of 750 12-inch bronze replicas and 100 pewter ones for fans to show off at home.
