I got this article on Captain America from somebody on twitter... (from crookedmonkey's Rob, who may or may not have had an LJ at some point) I think it might be of interest to a couple of people here, mainly kruku and possibly scifi_mel

The point they're making is that Cap America, contrary to what I always believed, wasn't supposed to be the gung-ho right wing anti-commie hero but rather a progressive, more nuanced left-wing one. Contestable but interesting.
