Captain America Doesn’t “Get” The Moon Landing, Nirvana And Steve Jobs [Humor]

xlgtsjaeqmdajd4hz5if

In the Marvel universe, Captain America is a World War II era super soldier who happens to get frozen in ice, only to dethaw in modern times. As such, there’s a lot he’s missed out on, and in the latest Captain America film, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, we get a quick list of Captain America’s notebook, tracking the things he doesn’t “get.”

Lo and behold, Steve Jobs and Apple made the list, alongside Nirvana, Rocky, Thai Food, the moon landing, and — inexplicably — I Love Lucy.

    If you actually watch the scene (which is available online), these aren’t things he doesn’t “get” (It’s not like he doesn’t understand the moon landing)– they are cultural highlights that he simply missed that have been recommended to him by people. I Love Lucy would be a pretty obvious choice for someone to watch that missed the golden age of television.

      its a Brownlee article. So research and paying attention are frowned upon

    Uh, no. It’s not a list of things he doesn’t “get”. It’s a list of things he needs to “check out”. Did you even watch the scene before you wrote that? Talk about trying to twist a positive into a negative…

    I don’t really understand the appeal of Lucy or Thai food, either.
