I loved "Captain America The First Avenger," but was mildly disappointed by the decision to downplay the Nazi angle and have Cap mainly fight Hydra forces instead of German troops.

Kirby's renditions of Cap slugging it out with Nazis while leading US troops into battle or working behind enemy lines is one of the main reasons I got into comics.

That's why I have to give major props to "Wonder Woman" for having the courage to pit her and her "Howling Commandos" - style colleagues against German troops, albeit in World War I. When WW charges across no-man's land and uses her shield to deflect bullets, you could easily imagine Cap in action doing the same thing.

Ironically, there's someone named "Steve Rogers" in the post-film credits.

What the two films do share in common however is each has a hero completely avoidibly dying in an aircraft.
