…carry the flag
Steve Rogers, a small, sickly but outrageously courageous kid, is a patriotic dream, risking everything to serve his country.
What red,white, and blue-blooded American doesn’t love this story? It’s a story of patriotism, an underdog, mutant Nazi’s, and drug trials (courtesy of Tony Stark’s father).
The transformation of course is the stuff of gamma ray exposed super mutant dreams… seriously, the Hulk must really hate this guy.
Of course, although historically (in the comic book universe sense of the word) Captain America was first, be it was only last summer that Chris Evans exchanged the flaming unitard of the Human Torch for the star-spangled unitard of Captain America thus violating the unspoken rule of comic book acting: YOU CANNOT PLAY TWO SUPERHEROES WHO EXIST IN THE SAME COMIC BOOK UNIVERSE!!!
That’s right Marvel gods, you have been called out. Johnny Storm and Steve Rogers can now never meet…until someone launches another franchise, of course.
But we the forgiving American audience that we are, will let this one slide. Maybe it’s our patriotism, our understanding nature, the fact that most audience members didn’t even notice, or perhaps it’s because “Captain America: The First Avenger” was awesome.
Just don’t do it again Marvel.
