What else says "AMERICA!" like punching Adolf Hitler in the face? We can't think of anything and apparently neither could the designer of this illustrated, limited edition poster for "Captain America: The First Avenger."

Inked by noted poster artist Paolo Rivera has a pretty nifty and perfectly fitting throwback vibe the comic books of yore and features all the characters you're gonna see in the upcoming film. But don't look for this at your local multiplex. Only 100 were printed and given at the Hero Complex festival over the weekend, of if you're a proud owner, frame it and get it up on a wall pronto.

Starring Chris Evans, Hayley Atwell, Hugo Weaving, Dominic Cooper, Toby Jones, Sebastian Stan, Neal McDonagh, Samuel L. Jackson, Stanley Tucci and Tommy Lee Jones "Captain America" hits on July 22, 2011. Check out the poster below. [Hero Complex]

    Now I want a poster that literally features Captain America kicking the Three Musketeers in the balls. That'd probably ruin his standing with de Gaulle, though.

    Just to clarify -- the image in this poster is directly based on the awesome cover art from CAPTAIN AMERICA #1, which itself was later immortalized by Chabon as the cover of his fictional AMAZING MIDGET RADIO COMICS #1 in "Kavalier & Clay."

    Michael Chabon, please call your office.

    They should just use this as the secondary poster for the movie. They already have the decent one with him and the shield. This one is cool as well because it kicks the shitty Three Musketeers one right in the balls.

    awesome. i'd like to hear one good reason why this can't be used for the main theatrical campaign, because it is way better than anything else i have seen.
