Weekend Box Office: First Avenger Takes First Place
Hero power topped Harry Potter this weekend. Captain America: The First Avenger made a solid debut at number with $65 million. While that's a respectable opening, it's nothing to get excited about. According to rankings it's only the 48th largest opening for a comic book adapted film.

9 Things You Need To Know About The Marvel Universe Before Seeing Captain America
In 2008, Marvel Studios embarked on an incredibly ambitious project. Starting with Iron Man, the company began releasing a series of superhero movies based on their own properties that would eventually be tied together in the team-up movie The Avengers in 2012.

Exclusive Interview: Captain America's Sebastian Stan
When Captain America was created by Joe Simon and Jack Kirby in 1941, he was given a sidekick named Bucky Barnes. Much like Robin in the Batman comics, Bucky was a way for younger members of the comic-book reading audience (which is to say most of it) to see themselves in the storyline. This approach, however, would never fly in the 21st century, where fans have used their wallets to demand darker plots and characters instead of campy goofiness.
