Comic books have given the relatively young country of America its own mythology. Marvel Comics' Captain America is one figure in particular that Americans have come to love. This patriotic superhero was created during World War II to fight the Nazi regime. But is the creation of this American "super soldier" incidentally in line with the same ideology the Nazis used to create a "super race"? Watch as Emory University's Professor of Bioethics, Paul Root Wolpe, discusses the similarities and differences in agendas.
