((I think everyone misses the fact that Peggy is running towards the grenade as well, Steve just gets there first. That’s why I love Peggy, that’s why Steve loves Peggy. They’re both unselfish and brave, and that’s what makes them great and great for each other.))

I kind of resent the suggestion that there would be something inherent about superheroes that wouldn’t be of interest to women…. There’s nothing inherently masculine about power fantasies.
