3. Captain America, from Marvel’s Captain America comics
The reason I wanted to be a superhero is because of Captain America. Honestly, I think it had more to do with someone buying me his action figure and I never lost it. Either way, Steve Rogers embodies the ideals of honesty, integrity, loyalty, respect, professionalism and self-discipline… which sounds a lot like my place of employment’s core values.
Captain America inspired my own superhero – Captain United. Captain United was filthy rich with about $12,000 a year. I was in third grade. I thought $12,000 a year was filthy rich.
When Marvel was bought by Disney, I started hoping for a Captain America themed ride at one of their parks. I guess I will have to keep waiting… for now. 😉
