I don't get it.

I mean, I get the words at the bottom, and that the implication is that Dr. Pepper, like Captain America, is one of a kind.

But I don't understand what the image, slash and number are meant to communicate, exactly. Is it...a fraction gag, of some kind...? Or math...? That Captain America can't be reduced further than Captain America...?

I don't know. But now I associate Captain America and Dr. Pepper with forgotten grade school math and overall confusion, and therefore would prefer to avoid them both. It's Batman and Mr. Pibb for me.

I think it's supposed to be "1/1" like "1 of 1".

Yeah, Cap's unique, one of a kind. Just ask Patriot, the Spirit of 76, USAgent, Roscoe Simons, the Winter Solder, Isaiah Bradley, 50's commie-smashing Cap, Major Victory...

I don't get it either.

It's a play on the Dr. Pepper TV commercials with the same #/1 motif, like the one featuring the female boxer. I'm sure they have them up on YouTube.
