Why did they make Cap a lefty?

I’ve always wondered why in the game cap is left handed but in the comics/movies he’s right handed. Is this just something the developers overlooked?

    He is right handed in the game ... or at least he uses his shield in the right arm.
    When fightning against someone, the image is always reversed, and that's why a Cap in the opponents team is left handed

    Lol that makes no sense. Think about what you just said...if that’s the case then everyone else in the game is left handed lmao

    Well ... yes? Every playable champion that can be found on defense is both right and left handed, deppending on the scenario

    I don't even know what he's talking about tbh. When playing cap I've always seen him be right handed

    I think what TC is stating is that in the champion display screen, Cap holds his shield in his right hand. For the most part, every time you see Cap he carries his shield in his left hand. However, there are times in the comics that you'll see Cap hold his shield in his right hand as well.

    It's been said before Kabam Universe doesn't always equal Comic book / Marvel Movie Universe.

    The Cap you fight with is right-handed. the Cap you fight is left-handed. This is true for all champions, except for Taskmaster, who holds his sword in his left hand when you play him, and in his right hand when you fight him.

    Bucky's bionic arm, Aegon's missing arm, etc.. displayed as attacker vs defender are always mirror images during a fight, so they will always appear to be “wrong” on either one side or the other in a fight.

    Cap's shield I could agree that he (in the comics/movies) probably would switch it up depending what he is doing. Using shield for blocking purposes (normal shield use) would be in one hand, but he could maybe be using his dominant hand when he is flinging his shield as a projectile at someone (don't know for sure that’s what he does, but would make sense).

    You’re worried about cap and others being left or right handed... where does rocket keep all those parts to his gun?!?!? That’s bothering me and has been..... unsanitary to say the least.

    where does Gamora get her gun and sword from? Where do Punisher and Winter Soldier get their guns from? Where does Magik get her sword from?

    answer: hammer-space.
  • This convo literally makes no sense to continue but whatever. All champs are mirrored for reference look at the profile pic of each champ in a fight they should both be facing in
  • Closing this down since it's been answered. Thanks, gang!
