Quote:...and all the things that we see in his "past" is really what Burnside experienced/went through before he became the 1950s Cap.
And it resolves my problem with Helmut's age. In the 40's he wouldn't be the age he is in the flashbacks. He was a little boy when Heinrich's face was damaged. If the flashbacks are of the 50's it works.
Quote:As long as they end with the speech, I'm happy:
Listen to me -- all of you out there! You were told by this man -- your hero -- that America is the greatest country in the world!
Quote: He told you that Americans were the greatest people -- that America could be refined like silver, could have the impurities hammered out of it, and shine more brightly!
He went on about how precious America was -- how you needed to make sure it remained great!
And he told you anything was justified to preserve that great treasure, that pearl of great price that is America!
Well, I say America is nothing!! Without its ideals -- its commitment to the freedom of all men, America is a piece of trash!
A nation is nothing! A flag is a piece of cloth!
I fought Adolf Hitler not because America was great, but because it was fragile! I knew that liberty could be snuffed out here as in Nazi Germany! As a people, we were no different than them!
When I returned, I saw that you nearly did turn American into nothing!
And the only reason you're not less then nothing --
-- is that it's still possible for you to bring freedom back to America!
No one suggesting that Star Trek episode; Where Captain Kirk was split into a good Kirk and a bad Kirk by a Transporter accident?
Could Kubic accidentally split Steve Rogers, when de-aging and rewriting his past, into 2 Rogers, one good and one bad?
