more patriotic than this

Hollywood, CA - First Green Lantern lights up 
the box office with one of the most anticipated 
summer blockbuster comic book heroes, now 
another- Paramount Studios with
 Captain America: The First Avenger

Based on the Marvel Comics character from 

World War II. A brave, yet mild-mannered 
young soldier named Steve Rogers, volunteers 
to undergo a series of experiments for a US 
army Super Soldier program. The military 
succeeds in transforming him into a human 
weapon, but quickly decide that their Super 
Soldier is far too expensive a creation to risk
 in combat.

So, they decide to put him to use as an army 

celebrity and parade him across Europe to boost 
morale by performing in USO shows for American 
troops. He is even given a costume that bear 
the colors of Old Glory for the stage.

Then, when a Nazi plot reveals itself Rogers 

must rise up and and become the First Avenger, 
in order to save his country. Steve Rogers becomes 
Captain America and he earns his way into the 
hearts and souls of every American, bringing hope
 and justice to a war-weary nation. Later, during 
a mission to Germany to stop his archenemy 
The Red Skull, from launching rockets at the 
allies, Captain America sacrifices himself and 
winds up frozen in ice for almost six decades! 
Revived, Steve Rogers now must join forces 
with new heroes and become an Avenger of 
the modern age.

"Captain America" is a 1990 Action Adventure film 
directed by Albert Pyun. Starring Matt Salinger, 
Scott Paulin, Ronny Cox, Ned Beatty and Darren 
McGavin. Steve Rogers is injected with the Super 
Soldier formula, becoming Captain America as a 
 last ditch effort to thwart a psychopathic Nazi 
agent known as the Red Skull from launching a 
Missile at the United States during the height of 
 World War II. Trapping himself in the Arctic by 
deflecting the rocket, Rogers is freed 50 years 
later to find that not only is the world a much 
 different place...but the Red Skull is still alive 
and still a menace.
