One Response to Captain America: A Little Help

  1. It is interesting how a medium such as a comic can be utilized in such a way that it can be beneficial to people who are in need of help. Captain America is a strong and iconic role model and I applaud the use of him in this way, even if it can help to save only a small number of people. Thinking outside of the box can sometimes reap huge rewards in tackling a problem.
