White Boy Scout they wanted Steve Rogers to be.
I feel like they could/could’ve done so much more with these storylines.
The “Truth” storyline with Eli’s (the Patriot) grandfather remains some profound storytelling, primarily because in the frame of the Jim Crow era, it makes perfect sense the US Government would test the super soldier serum on someone else. That someone else turned out to be the beginning of a great legacy in and of itself, thankfully.
When articles claim incorrectly that Sam Wilson is the first black Captain America, you point them to Isaiah Bradley.
Also, Isaiah Bradley was not the first Capt. He came after they lost Steve in the ocean. Bradley’s story is a nod to The Tuskegee Experiments.
