I wonder how they would manage to tackle it. I guess the most likely way would be for them to have a woman make a pass at him and to be rebuffed and then to have him confide in her. Or maybe some (kind of lame) scene in which somebody says to him "you don't know what it's like to be different!" Basically anything but… » 8/15/14 10:17am Friday 10:17am

I think, if anything, it's more likely that Bucky/Winter Soldier takes up the shield. Sam as Captain America is a brand new concept that likely isn't even going to be permanent in the comics—whether it succeeds or not.

But does either version of events seem altogether rational? This is the kind of situation where, no matter who you believe, you have to sit there and say "But why would they do that?"

There's no way to end collisions at the plate without working to prevent the conditions in which a collision would have historically necessitated a collision. » 8/14/14 9:16am Thursday 9:16am

I didn't go to Michigan, but I'm going to say he probably wouldn't be expelled if he were a regular student unless the assault happened on campus (which this one probably didn't, since it was outside a bar). Not to worry, though, he's probably going to be kicked off the team—though he might not have been without the… » 8/12/14 4:13pm 8/12/14 4:13pm
