Avengers Are Bringing Captain America Home

Before the Avengers Became Celebrities

I know that everyone is enamored with the Avengers right now. Hollywood is churning out the superhero movies left and right these days.

Many people probably associate Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man and Chris Evans as Captain America, but don't you know there is an alternative.

Once upon a time...

When I was a kid, I sat a few feet away from the television, and I watched cartoons--Spiderman, Batman, Iron Man, Superman and Captain America. It was great, and each of them brought me into a world where anything was possible.

That's not all, though. Something about the black lines and vibrant colors catered to the irrelevance of realism. They told stories of villains created from chemical disasters, radiation and experiments gone wrong. However, they were simple, and cut right to the chase, literally in some cases.

I miss those old days when establishing the back story and realism of each and every gadget and superpower wasn't necessary. I miss the days when superheroes were just super. They didn't need to have a reason why.

What's It All About?

In this one, it's the end of World War II, and things are looking bleak. The enlisted men are running out of hope, and they're in need of a symbol. Queue mister red, white and blue--The Cap.

An enlisted man sent through the super-soldier program, suited up in the country's colors, and fitted with a round shield brandishing a large white star. He leads the troops with nothing but courage and bravado.

The Captain won the day, but as it turned out the enemy wasn't exactly human, and they were able to freeze him, and send him to the bottom of the ocean until years later, when Nick Fury was there to thaw him out.

The real story begins...

As Fury introduces Captain America to his new life, and instructs him, he'll be leading a new team that consists of individuals that, by themselves, can move mountains. But together, they're an egotistical disaster.

The Captain is to lead Iron Man, Black Widow, Giant Man, Wasp, Thor and Hulk, against the same aliens that froze the Captain decades earlier. Once again, the Cap needs to unite the troops just like he did at the end of WW II.

As I said...

I don't need all the complicated back stories of the superheroes. I know them. And even if I didn't, I don't really care. All I need to know is, what color they are, what's their power and are they good or bad.

Then, bring on the action. and that's exactly what you'll get with Ultimate Avengers: The Movie.

      @Spirality: I'm a big fan of Justice League, too. But Avengers is just so full of character. The personalities of the heroes shows through most of all. Thanks for the comments.

      haven't seen this movie but I do love The Avengers as a team and I lover the animated movies more than the live action films. However, I still am a bigger fan of the Justice League as a whole. Captain America was never one of my favorites but I do look forward to the new Captain America film coming out soon. Great review.
