Heroism is powerfully interrogated by the fifth episode of Falcon and the Winter Soldier, which is also one of the best hours of Marvel content ever made.

John Walker thinks there's heroism in empty vengeance, whereas Sam and Bucky find a much more meaningful version in the little things. The Delacroix community finds it in the goodness of the Wilson family, which they reward with their own small acts of heroism. But Isaiah Bradley's story is a monument to the hard truth that many heroes never get the chance to tell their own stories; instead, they're tortured and exploited by cowards in power. 

Join Amanda Marcotte, Maeve Adams, and Marc Faletti for a compelling look into the themes that arise from this exploration of heroism and other works of literature and film with similar ideas.
