Captain America is one of my all-time favorite heroes. Why? Because unlike Ironman, who only became a hero after building his suit of armor, or Superman, who was born with superpowers. Captain America started off as a scrawny guy who just wanted to serve his country. He was the little guy, who regardless of how many times he got knocked down, he always got back up. He was a hero on the inside BEFORE he got superpowers, BEFORE he had the ability to effect real change.
