FEEL FREE TO DISAGREE WITH ME (if you do, please just carry on and ignore this), but Captain America is, by far, my favorite hero.
Why, you ask?
A hero, by definition is a man of distinguished courage or ability, admired for hisbrave deeds and noble qualities.
Of all the superheros, I think Captain America embodies this definition of hero the best. He was not born with super strength and incredible abilities like Superman or Thor, he wasn’t chosen at random like Banner or Spiderman, he didn’t buy his power like Batman or Iron Man. He was chosen specifically for his courage, his integrity, his heart.
Yes, I grant that the other Avengers can be way more badass than the good ‘ole Capsicle. But none of them embody the true meaning of hero. Yes, they all come together and perform heroic deeds and save the world. Yes, they all have to either have an abundance of courage or quite a few screws loose to fight off an entire alien army. But no one, has more nobility than our Captain. He is always the one to lay down on the wire and let the other guy walk over it.
