Batman-Captain America is one of my favorite comics and IMO one of the best comics ever made.

People still don't know how to embed YouTube videos?

I get a kick out of that one, though. Funny stuff.

Also are they even fighting Nazis? All we ever see is HYDRA. Did the Third Reich just completely fall in 1942 to HYDRA? A little confusing really. I personally interpret Schmidts little rebellion against Hitler as just a way to bargain for more independence in his actions but that he basically just still fought on the Nazis side, but it really isn't clear.
What I got out of it was that HYDRA thought the Nazis were basically a bunch of liberal wimps. I found that entertaining.

I gave it just an A. It was good, but it didn't hit it out of the park like I was hoping.

I think my favorite scene of the film,. And probably the one that perfectly exemplifies what kind of character Rogers is, is when Jones tosses the grenade and Steve, without even thinking flings himself on top of the grenade.

That scene with the grenade sells his heart and dedication.
The scene where he gets the flag from the pole shows his ability to reason and problem solve and I enjoy it every time(which is about 5 viewings now).

Yeah, both of those scenes do a really good job of selling the heart of his character. The scene later when he goes off to save Bucky and the other captured soldiers really sells his superhero-ness. Captain America, for me, was probably the best superhero movie of this Summer.
