Captain America, the world’s first Avenger and a fan-favorite at CHS, swings into theaters this April 4.

“I like Cap because he is one of Marvel’s most interesting characters,” sophomore Enoch Lee said. “He depicts what America should be and not what it necessarily is today. Over time in the comics, he sees that humanity has come a long way but also sees that some things have changed for the worse.”

While critics viewed the first movie as “so-so,” many CHS students loved the movie for many different reasons.

“The first movie was very enjoyable,” senior Matt Baris said. “The costume was definitely better than the one in the Avengers.”

There are many theories about what will happen in the upcoming movie. Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier is set after The Avengers with Steve Rogers aka Captain America living in modern day Washington, DC and working with the Black Widow to help the spy organization S.H.I.E.L.D. After an attack from the mysterious Winter Soldier, the Captain must team up with the Black Widow and a new ally, the Falcon, to take this threat down and uncover the secrets behind this new foe.

However, other students do not know what the movie will hold for the leader of the Avengers.

“I’m not sure what will happen in the new movie,” freshman Hall Smith said. “I don’t want to really speculate. The trailers don’t give me a full idea of the story.”

Though Captain America is a very likeable superhero, he is not some students’ favorite. However they are still excited for the new movie.

“He is not my favorite superhero,” Smith said. “Although I like his simplicity, I like a dynamic and completely different kind of hero like Spider-Man.”

While some see Captain America as just a superhero, others see him as a great role model.

“He shows patriotism towards helping people and serving his county,” said freshman Reed Goldstein. “He took the risk of getting injected with gamma radiation.
