Best kid ever.
Finally a kid doesn’t have to be saved!
This was the cutest part of that movie and if you don’t think so you’re wrong.
I have been waiting years for this set.
You’re a kid, doing kid things, pondering trading cards and bouncy balls and whatever else kids thought about back then. Then there’s this hullabaloo, and you’re not sure what it’s about, and all of a sudden there’s someone grabbing you and holding a gun to you. You’re being held prisoner by a bad guy, and the good guy is clear as day.
And then the bad man pitches you into the bay. You flounder a bit, a little surprised, but get your head above water.
Wait, you’ve seen this before, in comics. The bad guy endangers a kid, the hero saves the kid, the bad guy gets away. That’s how that works. But you don’t need to be saved. You can swim. You know that the good guy will save you if you ask him to, but you don’t, because you know that it’s more important to stop the bad guy.
And that’s how a brave kid kept the supersoldier serum out of Hydra’s clutches.
I hope he grew up into a SHIELD agent.
