The Messiah is no longer a trope. Is there a better trope for this?
  • The Messiah: His eventual return after his second death becomes the turning point in Dark Reign, as he becomes the point the heroes rally behind to defeat Norman Osborn.

I just removed a lot of needling aimed at Ultimate Cap. I know he's a big divider, but can we keep the fanwank out of the wiki?

Has anyone ever added Deliberate Values Dissonance / Playing with a Trope? Cap is 100%^ a product of his time in his attitude towards women and such, but channels those attitudes through his Incorruptible Pure Pureness; He is America - the America that fights monsters and protects the innocent and accepts everyone. It's always kinda awesome when he goes up to a hawk or a bigot and says Shut Up, Hannibal!.

Not going to change the caption for the picture, but I just want to say I was really tempted to change it to, "America. Fuck yeah."

You mean "Captain America, Fuck Yeah!" Except Cap would probably be disappointed in us for using such bad language, and frankly, having Captain America be disappointed in you is probably, like, the worst feeling in the history of everything.

Removed section on the shipping of Captain America/Iron Man being more prominent than Captain America/Falcon or Iron Man/War Machine despite more canon moments of intimacy, and attributing this to 'looks'.

First, all three pairings have a multitude of such moments, and saying any one pairing has more is subjective.

Second, while there's certainly a place for pointing out that slashiness between white men is often appreciated more than between black men, or a white man and a black man, I don't think the Captain America page is that place. Perhaps it deserves its own trope, which could then be listed on this page? It's common in Psych fandom, and Stargate: Atlantis. Out of the realm of slash, it was an issue in Star Trek reboot fandom with Spock/Uhura.

It's more a case of "Unfortunate Implications" than anything else, I readily concede. But I do think it's worth mentioning, especially in light of the large number of people shipping Tony/Steve and the extremely small number of people shipping Falcon/Steve despite the comic being a buddy book titled "Captain America and the Falcon" for many years.
