Captain America as imagined by Mel Gibson

Why? Why didn’t Tony cover Cap’s torso? Why is Marvel choosing blatant Christian imagery? Why was Sharon shocked enough to confess her crime?

You know, I actually would like to see a Cap movie done by Gibson.

  2. I dunno, this really doesn’t feel like blatant ‘christian’ imagery to me. Seems more like a ‘death of a hero’ story, with certain tropes. Noting screams ‘That’s Jeebus’ to me.

  3. Sorry about the name. It’s fixed now.

  4. It’s not bad or anything, it’s just a little Jesus-y.
