    I'm not sure I agree with that.



    Quote:
    I'm aware that Sam has suffered his fair share of loss, but I consider him to be one of the most moral and decent men in the Marvel universe - which is why after Steve he is, and always has been, the very best candidate to take over from Rogers as Captain America.



    Quote:
    One of the reasons he earns that right is because he maintains his morals *despite* his experiences, rather than losing them *because* of those experiences.



    Quote:
    Ive no doubt he is at a low ebb at the moment - and considering violence as a solution is a realistic emotion for him to feel - but if this is anything other than a fleeting feeling that he will eventually come to his senses about and find a better solution, then I think he is letting himself and the costume he wears down, and I think thats something that is bourne out throughout his history.


But he's not considering doing the violence. He did do the right thing and did a press conference to end the violence. He just has doubts the turn the other cheek method will work. He's not saying he's going to go start a riot if things don't go his way...but he's aware of the real possibility that one's coming anyways.


    Quote:
    How many times can you recall Sam deciding that violence is the most effective resolution to a problem?


Going to his ex-girlfriend Leila's criminal boyfriend Norman's apartment and roughing him up in Captain America and the Falcon #7 comes to mind.
