Avengers 2: Upgrade Captain America or kill him.

To start, I thought that I'd tell you that I think Captain America is my favorite Avenger. Personally, I just think he looks awesome, and 1940's America was really cool IMO. Plus, I like the things that he stands for, and represents morality, and the mind of the soldier. Plus, unlike the other Avengers (Iron Man in particular) he's standing up for what he thinks is right. That was why he was made Captain America in the first place. I also love that his combat style is far more visceral than the others'. For example, Iron Man, Thor, and Hawkeye can keep their distance and kill from a range. Black Widow kills a few, I suppose, but let's be honest, she's there for her *ss. Captain America get up close and personal with each enemy he kills, and has to think about how to fight them. Unlike Hulk who just goes ape*hit. But, his power sucks. He may be a super soldier, but against the other Avengers he is seriously underwhelming. If anybody's read Marvel Civil War, you would know that [url=http://www.google.co.uk/imgres?q=ironman+vs+captain+america&num=10&hl=en&tbo=d&biw=1024&bih=679&tbm=isch&tbnid=EDCHAvKcI_JHXM:&imgrefurl=http://boxintypex.blogspot.com/2011/04/captain-america-vs-iron-man-in-avengers.html&docid=cqZK7XPCuzDxuM&imgurl=http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-5Aw2ZIgrIQQ/TbdumHK83bI/AAAAAAAAAnY/Nk28g68vyO0/s1600/Ironman_vs_Captain_America.jpg&w=1440&h=900&ei=C3PsUPSdN-uz0QWw2oDYBA&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=12&vpy=140&dur=340&hovh=142&hovw=219&tx=167&ty=68&sig=103714314942789368058&page=1&tbnh=132&tbnw=199&start=0&ndsp=20&ved=1t:429,r:0,s:0,i:88]Iron Man virtually kills Captain America[/url], so that's clear evidence that he is not the best. So the reason I say upgrade or die is simply because I cannot stand potentially the awesomist (it's a word!) Avenger getting outshined and ripped on for another two years.

Cap is badly wounded and works in the background against Iron Man's cause. Because of his super-human metabolism, Cap was up and at 'em within a few weeks. Cap then uses a SHIELD EMP device to shut off Iron Man's suit, then just beats him with the shield. Hardly a fair fight.

Really, he's there to act as sort of a leader and rallying symbol. Iron Man simply doesn't work like that for me.

  • I agree. His character is boring, and self righteous. They should kill him off in the first 5 minutes.
