Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Public Affairs wants the media to know that Captain American and Spiderman will be visiting the Pentagon tomorrow "from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. EDT, to meet Pentagon personnel and their families as part of the national program, 'Take Your Daughters and Sons to Work Day.'
The advisory also mentions that Marvel Comics will be distributing a "'America Supports You' special edition 'Salute Our Troops' comic book at the event.
Although not mentioned in the press release, there can be no doubt that this is part of an effort by Steve Rogers to repair his image, which was hit hard, and rightfully so, after he made some anti-American comments in the wake of September 11th reason for war.
It is worth noting that no mention of Frank Castle or his alter ego the Punisher is made, even though he has made similar comments.
