Steve Rogers is a small, sickly but determined man who has applied for the army multiple times but continues to get rejected because of his stature. When he’s about to give up, a doctor and scientist notices his determination and eagerness and allows him to join the American army. While training it’s obvious that Steve is too small to be a good soldier, but he has the best heart. He’s the one who jumps on a grenade in training to save his team, and he’s very smart. The doctor recruits Steve to be a part of his project, which gives him incredible strength and size. After
After watching the first Captain America i had to consider multiple things. First was this movie successful and secondly why was it successful or if not then why not. This movie starring Chris Evans as the titular hero was released in 2011, directed by Joe Johnston and on a budget
During the beginning of the film, Steve is asked “Do you wants to kill Nazi’s?” by Dr. Erskine, this question is a test to see if he is fit to take the super-soldier serum. Steve answers, “I don’t like bullies. I don’t care where they come from.” By not giving into the obvious violent answer, Steve is challenging the masculine code that men need to be violent. This is what makes Captain America different from other

The film Captain America is a classic piece of American cinema that was intended to ignite patriotism in the hearts of all who view it. To accomplish this task the director had to make connections between the audience and the hero. The film uses pathos ethos and logos to make this necessary connection. Through these aspects the director is able to show the true character of Captain America and also successfully develop what kind of character he is. Although pa-thos ethos and logos all play a role in the development of the film without an emotional con-nection through pathos the other two would not be nearly as effective.
All superheroes have weaknesses. Whether it’s physically or mentally, they all have weaknesses that they struggle with that try to prevent them from being the best that they can be. Captain America and Beowulf share a similar weakness of the ability to get mortally wounded, due to the fact that they are both regular human beings. The advantage of Captain America though is that, due to the soldier serum, Captain America’s age is slowed down (Frost). This is so important because this was a major factor in why Beowulf died. Because Beowulf was growing old, he wasn’t as strong as he used to be. Therefore he wasn’t strong enough to fight the dragon (Beowulf 800-805). Unlike Beowulf, Captain America’s slow aging advantage will allow him to have strength and abilities that will allow him to fight for a long time.
The author does well to show him as courageous, but helpless. In the opening scene he defends the honor of the armed forces in the movie theater. This gets him into a fight and a beating from a much larger man. He does not back down from the man but is overcome until his friend jumps in. Right after this Steve is shown in his scrawny form trying to enlist where the folder displays how many flaws he has. In boot camp he is again shown as subpar in stature and strength. It enables the viewers to relate to feeling insignificant and unworthy, or just ordinary. Once he is broken down it gives the chance for him to overcome everything. This aspect encourages the spectators that anyone can become a hero.
Steve Rogers was a scrawny student. In 1940, appalled at Nazi Germany’s horrific atrocities, Steve attempted to enlist in the army.

“It takes a deep commitment to change and an even bigger commitment to grow”. Captain America and George both grew as people, but one grew more.

When people leave their homes and immigrate to a new country, they are most likely expecting to seek better opportunities and hoping for a better quality of life, but many did not find it. Parents immigrating into the U.S. bring their children hoping their children will find a better education. However during the 1930’s it backfired; predominantly Mexicans coming into the U.S. dealt with harsh stereotypes and weren’t welcomed with open arms. During the 1930’s the racial remarks on Mexicans began to grow. Mexican Children in the U.S during the 1940’s who stood to obtain an education were looked down upon. The teachers told the Hispanic students that they were not capable of obtaining a college level education, but to only graduate with a
To begin, a doctor, named Dr. Erskine, from New York, New York created Captain America in 1941. This was a time when Americans were very proud of their nation and centered everything around World War II. The community was mostly anti-German, since Germany was one of the three countries America was battling during World War II.

Eager to join, Steve Rogers volunteered himself for an operation that Dr. Erskine planned to conduct, which would alter his physique to that of a super human. After ingesting the “Super Soldier Serum,” Steve Rogers transformed into Captain America. His muscles and reflexes were greatly enhanced, as well as his height and frame. An agent from Nazi, Germany assassinated Dr. Erskine because he

Another problem could be found in with body image because Captain America is extremely muscular in a way that most people will never achieve; nevertheless, Captain America is only this physically fit because he was put in an experiment that made him virtually indestructible as is explained in the
Captain America is the stereotypical hero. He is brave and loyal. He always does what is best for the people and he never makes bad decisions. This is easy to do since he is a popular comic book, and now movie, character. No matter what version a person reads or
