History: (Marvel Year-In-Review '93) - When Senator Brutus led other senators in an attempt on the Roman Emperor's life, Captain Romanus stopped them. Caesar offered to reward him with a thousand slaves, but he insisted that the everlasting glory of the Roman Empire was reward enough.

Comments: Created by Ken Levine and Marc Sairy.

   From the fictitious article, the story featuring Captain Romanus stopping Brutus was published on a wall in Pompeii circa 67A.D. Around that time, Nero was Emperor, but of course historically, it was Julius Caesar who Brutus assassinated; presumably, the story was set in the relative past to the year it was published. The article also notes that rising bas-relief costs and invading barbarian hordes forced the cancellation of Captain Romanus in 77 A.D.

   The story provides no hard evidence as to his physical stats, but since he's clearly based on Captain America, I have ASSumed he shares Steve Roger's height, weight, eye and hair color.

CLARIFICATIONS:
Captain Romanus
is an alternate reality counterpart to, but should not be confused with:

He has no known connections to:


Brutus

Brutus was a Roman Senator, and, from his appearance, a gamma mutate. Moving with surprising speed given his bulk, he attempted to assassinate Caesar but was stopped by Captain Romanus.
