Hey kids, so I have an extra poster of this image, if anyone wants it!  It’s 17 x 22 inches, and in awesome condition  - I just grabbed this image off the internet to show what the poster looks like, this is NOT an actual photo of the actual poster.  Actual poster is in MUCH better condition and is currently rolled in a tube.  No holes or tears or bends.
Maybe someone wants to trade for it?  Art trade, fic trade, other TMNT (or other fandom that I’m into) trade?  Or just pay the shipping?  Lemmie know!

Ok man, super stupid question here! Ready? Ok... What is Captain Americas role in the Avengers? What is so special about him? Is he just a famous war propaganda cartoon? I get it he represents patriotism I'm a patriot myself I served five years in the Marine Corps. I just don't get what makes him qualify for the avengers is all. Thanks!

This is not a stupid question. Despite the fact that he’s been in 3 major movies, some people still only think of Captain America as some guy who dresses in an American flag. 

You’re not wrong. When he was created in the mid-40s, Cap was one of the biggest and most obvious American propaganda figures in comics. But then WWII ended and so did his popularity. Then Marvel ingeniously brought him back in the 60s and he became an allegory for those unsure of their place in society. Similar to the situation some veterans go through when returning to civilian life. He became the consummate man out of time, he struggled with the demons from his past and yet found a way to thrive in a new era.

Yes, Cap is a patriot but the most important thing about Cap’s character is he’s not blindly patriotic or loyal. He does what he believes to be the right thing and isn’t influenced by the government or agencies he’s worked with or for. He’s a boy scout and has been a long-time symbol of freedom, patriotism and hope, very much like Superman. However (I’m sure a lot of Superman fans would disagree) Superman is a loyal and blind ally of the US government, while Cap follows his own moral compass and what he believes to be the American way.

Steve Rogers has disavowed his alter-ego more than once when his views had differed with American ideals or US government actions. He’s even led an underground movement that opposed government sanctions.

Now to answer your question. Cap’s role on The Avengers is defacto leader. He’s the guy almost every member goes to for advice and leadership. That’s how it’s been ever since he was revived in issue #4. It’s hard not to follow a guy who always seems to do the right thing and has gotten himself out of tough situations despite the odds against him. If you’ve seen The Avengers, then you saw in the film how Cap directed the Avengers to their locations and gave them their instructions. That’s what he does best. He’s a master strategist. He’s also an expert on most forms of hand to hand combat, most weapons and have you seen the way the throws that shield?

Sorry this answer went on so long, I just have a soft spot for Captain America. He’s one of my favorite comic heroes. I know some have made a big deal about Sam taking over the role (which he’s done before) but I have a hard time getting upset about it. I’ve always seen Cap as similar to Spider-Man in that it doesn’t matter who’s under the costume. What matters is their heroic spirit and determination.

Thanks for you’re question, , and thank you for your service.

Captain America is generally considered the best hand to hand combatant in the Marvel Universe. He has been beaten in fights, but not often and not by the same foe more than once to my knowledge. He is considered the best strategist in the Marvel Universe, with Batman and Superman deferring to his leadership in JLA/Avengers. And the super soldier serum just amplified what was already there. It made Steve Rogers bigger, faster, and stronger. It also increased his already excellent sense of spacial-relations, which he used to pay the bills as a comic book artist before the war.

Steve Rogers is the only guy that can tell the Hulk, Thor, Wolverine, Hawkeye, or the Punisher what to do, and they will listen. Everyone respects that guy. Literally, everyone in the Marvel Universe that knows Steve Rogers respects him at the very least.

the Red Skull hates Cap, but he would be an idiot to underestimate him - and he knows that.

I’m so glad I’m not the only one who laughed because they thought this.

Adult women are now the largest demographic in gaming

Congratulations, gamer girls—you’re officially at the top of the food chain when it comes to games. A new study released by the Entertainment Software Association has revealed that adult women now occupy the largest demographic in the gaming industry. Women over 18 made up a whopping 36 percent of the gaming population, followed by adult men at 35 percent. 

We’re in good company. You also can thank us for the abundance of kink memes, slash fics and erotic fan fic

That must mean the last 29% are 12 year old boys who still make pointless and excessive dick jokes about your mom in co-op.

I’m all for the women, end the barrage of ignorant and incessant pre-teens online!
