Photo 3 Jul 67 notes Puncher: Captain AmericaPunchee: Stage!Hitler
Memorable Lines: “How many of you are are ready to help me sock old Adolf on the jaw?”
Why it’s Awesome:  Tomorrow is the 4th of July, so I thought I’d do something a little patriotic here.  And what could be more patriotic than Captain America, the star-spangled man himself?  Well, Captain America punching Hitler in the face, of course.  Now, it’s noteworthy that in the film, although this is “real” Captain America, it’s a fake punch and a fake Hitler.  He’s doing live shows designed to sell war bonds, to literally sell the public on the idea of the war.  And you don’t sell patriotism by portraying the realistic horrors of war, you do it by giving folks something everyone wants to cheer for - punching the bad guy in the face.
And, of course, it’s not just for their benefit.  When things get real, all this preparation gives Steve the confidence he needs to become the hero he is: “You know what you’re doing?” “Yeah!  I knocked out Adolf Hitler over 200 times!”
Where to find it?: Captain America: the First Avenger (2011)
