WeLoveFine Shirts and Leggings Help You Get Your Captain America and Adventure Time On

I am almost partially at least somewhat certain that winter is marginally close to being over.

WeLoveFine has some new ones—plus some popular, back-in-stock ones—that we think you’ll like, plus some Captain America shirts newly released in women’s sizes and a spiffy X-Men shirt with art by Antony Rozwadowski.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Delivers Big Ideas, Bigger Explosions

Whether punching out Hitler or hanging up his shield, Captain America has always been a barometer for America’s political atmosphere, a reliable gauge for what’s on the minds of the nation. In his latest adventure, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, he is again, standing as a voice of reason in a high-octane action drama that concerns itself with the all-too-pertinent debate of freedom versus security. Those who found the first Cap adventure distasteful in its hamminess will be pleased to know that CA:TWS contains nothing of the kind, being a grim-faced thrill ride with no time to talk and no room for cheese. The jokes in Winter Soldier are spare and barely land, a testament to the film’s hard edge. But, unlike some of its dark-and-gritty peers in the superhero genre, a touch of darkness serves this sequel well, working for its covert ops setting instead of against it.

Is the price of knowing SPOILERS a price you’re willing to pay?

A Reawakened Captain America Has Some Important Things On His To-Do List

Thanks to Redditor LargeMaleDogOrHorse, we have a very important screenshot from Captain America: The Winter Soldier - Steve Rogers’ to-do list. To be fair, since the guy woke up in our time, he’s been pretty busy doing that superhero stuff, nice to see he finally has some time to indulge. But some important questions remain: Did Steve make this list or did Natasha (or Coulson) make it for him? Which order did he watch Star Wars in? Why is disco on this list at all?? But just think, when he’s done, Steve will finally understand some references!
