Arcee: From the start, I want to be completely honest with everyone regarding my feelings towards the Captain America: The First Avenger film and more precisely, the character of Captain America. Ever since I was a young boy collecting comics, I was always drawn to the Captain America character from Marvel Comics. That Captain America stood for everything good about being a patriot, even if it meant sometimes not stepping in line with what the government asked of him, inspired me from a very young age. It inspired me to join my high school’s Junior Air Force ROTC program and inspired me to enlist in the military as soon as I was old enough to. As fate would have it, a severe leg injury would prevent me from actually joining the military. But the aspects of being a patriot for my country still lingered in me due to the inspiration I had from the character.
