    I think the dilemma Sam ran into:



    Quote:
    1. You can't be political and be Captain America


True.


    Quote:
    2. Why would you want to be Captain America unless you could be political and fight for positive change?


I think for the same reason you'd want to be a soldier or intelligence agent. Captain America exists as the symbol of all those who protect the safety of Americans and the continuance of their democratic republic.


    Quote:
    At the end of the day Sam sort of showed how worthless the whole mantle is. You can only be a symbol in a lame meaningless stand for nothing sort of way. Speak out and voice your politics and you're unfit to be Captain America.
