Quotes: Captain Patriotic
Captain America is not here to lead the country. I'm here to serve it. If I'm a captain, then I'm a soldier. Not of any military branch, but of the American people. Years ago, in simpler times, this suit and this shield were created as a symbol to help make America the land it's supposed to be... to help it realize its destiny. Ricocheting from super-villain duel to super-villain duel doesn't always serve that purpose. There's a difference between fighting against evil and fighting for the common good. I'm not always able to choose my battles... but effective immediately, I'm going to make an effort to choose the battles that matter. Battles against injustice, against cynicism, against intolerance. I will still serve with the Avengers. I will continue to defend this nation from any and all threats it may face. But as of today, I am not a "super hero." Now and forevermore, I am a man of the people. Together, you and I will identify and confront America's problems. Together, we will figure out what we are and what we can be. Together, we will define the American Dream and make it an American reality.
Green Lantern: "Oh no, I make fun of you, I'll be demonized by the whole country.
Captain America: "What? No you wouldn't."
Green Lantern: Oh please... You're a soldier, a veteran, you wear the flag, and your last name is America! Heck, just to avoid any confusion, I brought an apple pie, a flag, and an apple flag pie!
Hi, I'm A Marvel... And I'm A DC: Captain America and Green Lantern
