    Having two daughters from Liberia, I do not mind the “minority hero.”

    I don’t mind them either…my beef is they should create new ones and leave the old ones alone.

    The Black Panther is a great character and figures prominently in this film.

    This must be “let’s take offense day” on the blog.

    I would think that it would be equally offensive to think that you have to give Falcon some white dude’s mantle in order for him to “get over” with readers. For that matter, who was the most recent super hero to be created that actually sold well without borrowing from some other legacy?

    My son took my wife to this movie as his Mothers Day gift. I haven’t seen it yet, but, given your positive review, I will place it on the Red Box list.

    I liked one stark bit of realism from the movie; the ‘hero’ who most laments his ‘hero’ status signs up to work for the UN and immediately exploits a minor with propaganda and the promise of wealth, puts the minor in harm’s way . . . and does so unilaterally while telling everyone else to be accountable. That was awesome.

    Great popcorn movie, very, very entertaining. I’d like to go back in time and tell 12 year old me “hang on, you won’t believe it, they’ll make a movie with these comic guys and it will amaze you how well they do it. Not a cartoon, either.” 12 year old me can’t believe how well made these movies are.

    I’m looking forward to seeing this movie. Having grown up as a comic book addict in the 60’s I don’t mind when a T.V. show or movie deviates in their storytelling. I simply hope they keep cranking them out!

    Having never really liked the comics character I was impressed that the movies got me to like Cap. A similarly remarkable feat was Hugh Jackman getting me to not hate Wolverine (a character I still find lame in the comics).

    Since Superman keeps getting re-marketed as some inept Christ typology it would appear the only character traditionally allowed to stand for the aspirations of America is going to have to be Cap.

    One of the things that’s been fun about the Captain America film series is that the stakes by and large stay national. There’s global implications but the stakes tend to stay within country, as opposed to the end-of-the-world-apocalypse-every-weekend vibe the Avengers has picked up.

    I really enjoyed the movie, I have to admit my favorite part was spiderman at the airport, the humor was really right on the mark. A strange thing about many American heroes is we enjoy even relish them gaining their ascendency then hope and pray they fall so that we can spiritually eviscerate them.
