    I'm not sure I agree with that.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
