Wyo. I am not here to discuss politics. I did not ask for your political opinion. But you say something like 'America have made mistakes' and then it takes ages for me to get you to explain what you mean. You seem to be being vague on purpous too and as I ask questions like 'What do you mean by that?' I'm suddenly titled as a troll. (Such descriminative titles only lead to anti-social behaviour, which is uncalled for on this forum). I don't care whether you side with this political party or that political party or whether you side with a political party that different than everyone else. I just don't think you're being very explanitory in your posts and you can't blame me for being confused by your vagueness.Just because I have no political stance doesn't mean that parties can't be blamed.
What about Obama and Bush and every other politican that's gotten into cabinet. Actually wait. That'll only derail the thread even further. Also, i seriously don't think they're actions have been 'mistakes'. You don't just accidently invade a country.Like in the comic, Nixon.

The only time I can actually think of Millar's Cap having to defend America was while he was being taken on by a dozen superhumans at once. He only resorted to killing Abdul, and I've pointed this out to you several times, because he really wasn't given a choice. I don't disagree that a longer pro-America monologue would have been nice, but the "that's not how we do things" line clearly stated his stance, basically boiling down to "the way you see us is not how we really are."
Regarding a change in character in Aaron's series, I don't see any. What is different about his Cap in issue #1 versus the one we see at the end of issue #4? A look at Cap in the miniseries:
-In issue #1 he insults the British, and the French in #2, killing enemy soldiers the entire time.
I'd say we can agree that Aaron is picking Cap up where Millar left him. This is very much in character with how he was written in Millar's Ultimates.
-In issue #4, Cap says the following: "You think I'd never heard of Richard Nixon before? ... I know all those stories. And a hundred more just like them that are even worse."
Here, Cap makes it clear that he already knew all this. Simpson's crazy rants did not teach him any new information.
So what exactly happened during his time with Simpson that changed him at all? The conclusion of their struggle essentially boils down to "You're crazy, I was right all along." Cap learned nothing from this. Granted, I don't think there was anything for him to learn, as Frank was a nutjob, and I think that's one of the flaws of this story. Plus, like I mentioned above, Cap kicks Frank's ass, continuing long after he's won, and actually leaves him in worse shape than the last two times he did this.
If anything at all, the change came in the final pages, with Hawkeye giving Steve a reason to question his faith, only to use that as an opportunity to evangelize to Frank. But that has nothing to do with Steve's patriotism, but instead his religion. And even then, it's not so much a change, just a reaffirmation of the faith we saw from Cap under Millar.
Long story short:
If Cap was shown in the Millar characterizations in the first two issues and his feelings on America came before the series, where is the change?
I like Ultimate Comics. - Read them with us!
I also buy: Captain America, Avengers, FF, New Avengers, X-Factor, among others
- His love for Penny Singleton movies
- Going to Afganistan to serve Thanks Giving Turkeys to his troops.
- He barely needs sleep at all.
Not really focus like you said, but more awesome things to know about Millar's Captain America.
Something that Cap has never done before?.....get fat and retire?
Nah it's something a superhero has never done. Get fat and retired? Wolverine's done it.
I'd love to see a legit fat superhero. All these characters are in perfect shape, and for the ones who work out it makes sense, but for many it's just like- "you have powers! Now you're constantly fit!" even if it's something completely unrelated, like telepathy.
"Before you save anyone else, you have to save yourself."
I think that the asgardians will get resurrected, but not brought back to life. I think Thor's son will rise to be the new Thor. I also theorize that 616 cap and 1610 cap will swap universes.
.....kill the evil president on national TV and subsequently replace him?
Depending on what you're asking, either sage6paths or Jason Aaron.Who wrote that crap?
