Captain America meets Quantum Leap? It could work.

A WWI sequel, now there's an intriguing idea! Maybe they can start working their way backwards via time travel.
By the fourth movie, we may have "Captain Colonies" running around. For the fifth movie, maybe "Kick'em White Man".

If they did a WWI prequel maybe they'd introdruce Union Jack and his team Freedom's Five.

They could do the 1950s Captain America and have him smashing Communists.

Those stories were later retconned, after Marvel revived Cap, as having been about a replacement Captain America rather than Rogers.

Fits, we've already seen in "Incredible Hulk" what later attempts at the Super-Soldier process did to people.

1776? He'd be "The Red Coat" and be British.

Or maybe "The Redder Coat"? "The Reddest Coat"?

They did do the "American Civil War" Captain America thing with him being a Union Soldier imbued with spiritual powers by Native Americans, the "Essence of the Land" or something. His archenemy was a crazed Union Commander also affected by the mystical power who became "The White Skull" and founder of the KKK.

It worked by itself, he just went too far trying to match the Hulk...

He was already kind of becoming unstable even before he got the gamma radiation treatment that turned him into the Abomination. This actually fits with imperfect Super Soldier experiments: They always forget to give the subject the vita-ray treatment after the serum.

I think one can also argue that Blonsky was not a suitable candidate, because he was too ambitious. I don't think Dr. Erskine would have ever selected someone like Blonsky for the super-soldier project. Certainly, he would have preferred not to.

Re: Captain America: The First Avenger-Review, Discuss, Grade, Sequel,

I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this film. I really didn't expect to as much as I did. I think the WW2 setting really helped though. It had the right quantities of the right stuff, and didn't lather on the patriotism with a shovel or in an overt (web-slinging landing on a flag pole) way.

I wonder if a modern-set Captain America 2 will do as well, post-Avengers.
