Minute Twenty-Two: From Furiously Beating to Fury Conceding

Matthew Costello, author of Secret Identity Crisis: Comic books and the Unmasking of Cold War America, joins us in this episode!

In the twenty-second minute of The Avengers

We really dig in on Steve Rogers and his place in 2012. Why is he so angry? What’s it say about his character? And is he just mad that he lost Peggy? Is there more? We explore his character here and in the comics, as well as his relationship with Nick Fury. This scene sets up an interesting dynamic between these characters that we begin exploring. But what has Steve been doing since he was thawed out? Tune in!
