With all the recent Marvel crazy going around I decided to see the new Captain America movie, I was very surprised at how well rounded the movie was. For those of you who do not know who this “Captain America” is here a little look at this Marvel hero.
Created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby, Captain America first appeared in Marvel comics in 1941 with Captain America Comics. Steve Rogers is Captain America’s alter ego, Steve grew up dreaming to fight in the war, and was rejected every time because of his physique. He then was recruited into a super soldier program where they injected “super serum” which made him Captain America!
According to Today there has been 210 million Captain America comics sold in over 75 countries. Captain America was created during World War 2 and that’s in part where all his popularity came from, when the war ended Captain America Comics faded in 1950. In 1953 he was brought back and joined the Avengers!
Captain America didn’t work alone, he had his squad and best friend Bucky to help him out. Bucky was the only one in the squad to “lose his life” during the war. In the end of the first Captain America movie, it shows scientist finding and defrosting Cap from his crash. This then brings him into the “future”, so to speak, to partner with the Avengers!
Difficulty with coping with reality show in the end of the first Captain America and during the Avengers movie he finds some new friends. In the Movie Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Cap is starting to find out things about S.H.E.I.L.D. that only gets worse. It ends up that he is on a wanted list and is being looked for by every agent in S.H.E.I.L.D. but he is not alone, he has Natasha Romanoff AKA Black Widow, and Sam Wilson AKA Falcon. Realizing the Winter Soldier is his best friend (Bucky) Cap is startled by this shocking truth.
I believe that this is one of the greatest action/combat movies of all time. You will want to slow down the combat scenes so you can get all of it. This is not a movie with complete and utter destruction (like Man of Steel), and does not have a lacking plot with lame fighting scenes. Overall a very well rounded movie that at my top 5 list.
