Is 'Captain America' virgin? MCU writers weigh in on fan theories about superhero's love life
‘Captain America’ is one of the most popular characters in Marvel and fans consider him as the godfather of the legion of superheroes that feature in the Marvel Universe. Apart from being a god-like figure in the comic-book world, Captain America has also been a hot topic of debate due to one of the strangest reasons.
Fans of MCU believe that Steve Rogers aka Captain America died a virgin in the cinematic universe and never got to have an intimate relationship with any of the female characters in all the phases that the character has appeared in. As far as comic books are concerned, there have been numerous occasions when we saw Rogers having sex with female comic-book characters. But, viewers never got to see anything of that sort in the cinematic universe.
However, the writers of three ‘Captain America’ movies have finally come forward to end the discussion by giving some explosive pieces of information about CA’s love life.
Is ‘Captain America’ still a virgin?
During an interview with Yahoo, the writers of ‘CA’ movies, Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely dismissed the fan theories that the superhero never had sex. McFeely said that it’s impossible to believe that the superhero is a “virgin.” The writer also added that the character’s charming personality and looks would have surely got him laid.
He added, “Why do people think he's a virgin? I think he loses his virginity! If you look like that, and you're going from city to city, and you're signing autographs for the likes of the ladies that he's signing the autographs for, I've got to imagine that [he lost his virginity].”
Meanwhile, Markus revealed that the superhero’s clean-cut appearance is not a reason to believe that he never had intimate relationships with women. Neither, it shows that he is a “choirboy.”
“Steve Rogers isn't a prude. He may be occasionally presented that way. He's a guy that believes in right and wrong and all these things, but he's not a choirboy. He's a World War II veteran,” Markus noted.
To be honest, the writers seem to be right about this. The character has been a part of many movies in the MCU and has seen a lot of eras. So, it does not come as a shock that Rogers is not a virgin.
Comics tell a different story
In comic books, Captain America has slept with a lot of female characters and some of those characters have been the love interests of other MCU superheroes. There have been 15 such instances in the comic world where Captain America has been shown to have an intimate relationship with other characters.
Characters such as Peggy Carter, Bernie Rosenthal, Iron Woman, Scarlet Witch (Wanda Maximoff), Rogue (Carol Danvers), Sharon Carter, and Jane Foster (Thor) had some really beautiful and intimate relationships with the star-spangled man.
Whether it was Steve Rogers or Sam Wilson, anyone who donned the iconic costume in Marvel Comics really made the women go wild.
We hope, the discussion of Steve Rogers being a virgin ends here and people can sleep at night after knowing that their favorite superhero did not die without getting some love from women.
