- I was a little less enthused about the violence - I'm in the "superheroes don't kill" camp and am still upset over what David Kelley had Wonder Woman doing in the busted pilot earlier this year - but at the same time this is actually consistent with the early days of Captain America. All those comic book issues in which Cap was indeed shown fighting Nazis in the 1940s, he wasn't using harsh language.
I'm the reverse. One of the things I like the most about Marvel Studios' films is that none of the heroes moan about how heroes should never kill anyone (only for their enemies to conveniently end up dead anyway in many instances). Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, and Cap all use lethal force without any nonsensical moral dilemmas (the idea of a soldier in World War II not killing people is not only absurd, it's rather an insult to all the other soldiers who Cap is meant to be a symbol of).
