‘Captain America’ 30-Second Summary
Captain America begins in 1936. A Nazi experiment transforms a young Italian boy into an angry supersoldier named Red Skull. The lead scientist, Dr. Maria Vaselli, doesn’t like the way the Nazis use her invention. She escapes them, and flees to America.
Flash forward seven years to 1943, and a brave young man with polo named Steve Rogers undergoes the same experiments. He becomes another supersoldier named Captain America. As the experiment ends, an enemy spy kills Vaselli—ensuring no other person can create another supersoldier as she didn’t write anything down on paper.
The military immediately sends Captain America to stop Red Skull. They’ve learned plans on sending a missile to destroy the White House. The two men face off, and the Captain winds up strapped to the missile. He manages to divert the missile’s path just seconds before it hits the White House, but it’s new trajectory send him crashing into the frozen Alaskan tundra where he sits frozen for the next 50 years. An expedition finds him in 1993, and he immediately thaws out, and flees.
Rogers stumbles back home to California where he finds his childhood sweetheart is nearly 70 years old. Unfortunately, Red Skull is still alive too, and his minions have just successfully kidnapped the President of the United States. It’s up to the Captain to take out his arch-nemesis once and for all.
