Is John Barrowman as Captain America the best Comic-Con entrance ever?

“I am Captina Americana!”

We’ve seen him split his trousers on Celebrity Juice and fall off a chair while wearing high heels on Loose Women, heard him belt out karaoke dressed as Wonder Woman, and now we’ve witnessed John Barrowman strutting on stage as a glittery Captain America.


Stepping into his San Diego Comic-Con panel in sparkly stilettoes, the Torchwood star flaunted his red, white and blue cape before revealing the Avengers costume beneath.

Naturally, he gave the audience a look at his star-spangled behind, before holding his shield high and declaring: “I am Captina Americana!”

So far, so Barrowman. But then he told a story about how marijuana makes him paranoid and obsessively stroke cats like a Bond villain…

…made a meat-based double entendre…

…and serenaded the audience with a rendition of A Thousand Years…

And after, he scooted away (still-stilettoed)…
