One of the things I enjoyed most about going to public school when I was in the 4th grade was getting to go through the elementary school library and find all kinds of new things to read. I loved the Hardy Boys and various other books that I cam across, but there was one book, that to this day I have no idea why it was in the library, that really got my interest. It was an old graphic novel from the 1960’s or 70’s about Captain America. The pages were really worn out and in general it seemed as though the book could fall apart. Yet, there within those pages I found my second most favorite superhero.
In the book I read all about how Captain America came to be. There were several tales of his battles with the Red Skull during World War II. And then there was the story of how he ended up in a frozen state only be discovered many years later by Iron Man and the rest of the Avengers.
So fast forward to the present and I am getting all excited as I get to go see the new Avenger movie tomorrow. The Captain America movie was great at bringing back my childhood memories last summer, and I can’t wait to see if the new movie reminds me of finding that amazing old comic book in my elementary school library. I know I may just be a big nerd, but I’m pretty excited!
