When it comes to assessing the moral alignments of the heroes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, there’s one in particular that should never be in doubt: Captain America is the very definition of “lawful good.” But for someone so closely associated with doing things properly, there sure are an awful lot of examples to be found of Captain America breaking the law. Maybe he’s not so lawful, after all.
And maybe that’s not such a bad thing, either. Steve Rogers was a part of the MCU for many years, and he lived through some truly world-shattering events during that lengthy run. Anyone, even a character as morally rigid as Cap, should undergo great change over that much time and under such consistently dire circumstances. That Rogers started out as “lawful good” and ended up more “chaotic good” isn’t a sign of any moral lapse on his part - it’s a sign of growth.
