Welcome to the latest episode of THN Cover to Cover, the weekly, comic book call-in show where YOU control the topics! In Cover to Cover, we answer the Question of the Week and talk about whatever nerdy subjects come to mind!
This week’s question comes from New Guy via the THN Forums: Captain America is my favorite fictional character, but it wasn’t always this way. Like many dumbasses, I thought he was just a hokey symbol of jingoistic American exceptionalism. That was until I learned the reasons why Kirby and Simon created him and actually read a bunch of his stories. HOLY shiz WAS I WRONG! (But you nerds already knew that.) Sadly, of course, those reasons still exist and many of his stories are still relevant because we haven’t learned our goddamn lesson some 78 years later. Now I can’t get enough Cap. So that brings me to my question… Which character have you been the most wrong about? Who did you absolutely hate or misunderstand and then find yourself loving? Was it because of outright dumbassery like mine, or because a new creator came on and changed the character around?
