However, he already had a strong will and good moral character to begin with. This made Captain America a perfect hero—someone who was not just all about strength and winning, but was also about morals, empathy, and having the good of the people as his top priority. He had integrity and strong conviction which he never compromised. And as a leader, he believed in the power of teamwork and inspired people through action.
