So for like the first time in months I’m going to go to a place for more than fifteen-twenty minutes. Wish me luck?
Cap visits a school assembly and they have him lead the pledge of allegiance but "under God" wasn't added until he went under the ice so he doesn't know that part so he doesn't say it and the next day all the headlines say "CAPTAIN AMERICA FORGETS GOD" and FoxNews freaks out.
oh my god
#fox news: captain america’s anti-god communist agenda #fox news: why does cap hate god? #fox news: cap has been henpecked by the left #media matters reports on facts regarding the pledge and the use of ‘under god’ #rachel maddow facepalms greatly and invites cap onto the show #fox news runs segment about captain america being bought by the leftist media like rachel maddow #which then gets mocked on tds #where jon stewart wants to know what hawkeye thinks about the national anthem and then says #oh right #no one cares about hawkeye
I seem to remember on political issues a lot of white people pulling out the old tired line of “There’s not a white American and a Black America, there’s just America”
Apparently the same does not apply for these folks and Captain America. I’ve heard a lot of people getting upset about a black man holding that star spangled shield. Let me put this out there:
Sam Wilson (aka The Falcon) is that black man holding the shield. He was created in 1969 by Stan Lee and Gene Colon. You can’t ask for a better pedigree for that to be part of the Marvel Universe. Beyond that, his first appearance was IN THE PAGES OF CAPTAIN AMERICA. He was born in that book. Of all of the friends/sidekicks/companions Captain America has had, he’s been there the most (more than Bucky who was dead for most of the publication life of Cap).
If you read the press in which it was announced it is clear that Steve is still around and just can’t perform his duties anymore, so he passes the shield off to his longest and most loyal friend. He hands it off to the guy who best exemplifies what Captain America himself thinks is the heart of Captain America.
So this “Not the real Captain America” hogwash is just that. He got handed a star-spangled shield the same way Steve Rogers did. No character was invented or made up to be “black Captain America”. He’s not “black Captain America” just the same as Steve Rogers, Bucky Barnes, or any number of other guys who have carried that mantle.were not “white Captain America”.
There’s not black or white Captain America. There’s just a guy (or a girl) holding a shield and standing up no evil not matter the cost. If that guy/girl being black bothers you, then you need to look at yourself, not Marvel Comics.
Sam won’t even be the first black man to carry the shield. Isaiah Bradley gets that distinction.
People who have a problem with Sam being Cap are racists, full stop.
I can’t believe they named the planets after all the sailor scouts

I have no powers and not nearly enough training, but I’m doing this anyways. Being a super hero is amazing. Everyone should try it
