But I mean, I will take a pot shit and say Captain America doesn’t represent anything good
what do you mean, I’m not saying you’re wrong I’m just curious?
okay, so, a few years ago a lot of comic book fans got their batman undies all twisted up in a knot during the Civil War even when one of it’s tie-in miniseries, Frontline, featured this exchange between Captain America and reporter Sally Floyd
and this scene made a lot of fans really fucking mad, really fucking mad
what none of them could realize is that Sally Floyd for right and they mostly just had a problem with a woman telling their precious sentinel of liberty how he was wrong.
Captain America, as a character, has always skirted this line where he claims to represent what is best for the American people (and there have been times where he’s opposed the government because what they were doing was wrong)
And during the Civil War event, Captain America goes on the fucking offensive as if the right to put on a mask and run around shooting lasers out of your cock is a civil liberty
He claims he’s doing it for the American people, but he doesn’t know shit about the American people. While Sally’s exact phrasing pissed people off, it’s like, Cap doesn’t understand why people are afraid of Spider-man, he doesn’t understand that there are college students who think he’s a fascist, he doesn’t understand why a mutant teenager would wear a Magneto Was Right shirt, he doesn’t know anything about America to the point that he can’t understand why people don’t want a registration act enacted
And we see the flip of this, post Dark Reign, where Cap is put in charge of America’s national security/The Avengers and he basically becomes a jackbooted thug. He storms his covert team into sovereign nations, he polices superheroes whose activities he doesn’t agree with, he puts members of an entire species on lockdown because Wolverine is beefing with Cyclops and he can’t be bothered to understand anything about the Phoenix Force.
Captain America is what happens when you give someone who has absolutely no desire to understand the world the power to police it.
The bolded is basically … why in essence he’s almost the perfect Captain America. Because that’s what it is.

austrian artist manfred kielnhofer’s lifesize glowing time guardians watching over Berlin
seriously one of the coolest installations ever . they travel the world materializing for a single night at various historically and culturally salient sites as badass and slightly creepy figures of observation, memory, and preservation of knowledge
Time Guardians. Time Guardians. I have chills just looking at the pictures.
Look, if you nicely tell me that swearing makes you uncomfortable and you politely ask me not to, I will stop immediately and speak nicer than a nun.
But if you start acting like you’re on some fucking high horse, or telling me that I’m going to Hell for talking the way that I do and you can’t “be around that kind of language” then you can bet your motherfuckin’ ass that I’ll be fucking cussing like a cunt-fuckin’ sailor you maggot-ridden piece of dick.
