Captain America in “Super Weapon” by Matt Duarte
Note from the author: I know I kind of cheated with this week's script, as it is not so much about the character, than his importance to the world in where he lived, and more importantly his influence on the war effort. I hope you enjoy it.
Description: President Harry Truman sits in the Oval Office. He looks sombre and with the weight of the world on his shoulders. He has his hands crossed in front of his face, looking down. An advisor stands next to him.
CAPTION: April 21st, 1945
TRUMAN: Any word of Corporal Rogers?
ADVISOR: I'm afraid not, sir. All the units have combed the area to the best of their abilities, but found nothing.
Description: Truman has stood up, looking out the window. There is no sun coming through, only a drab grey and pale light.
TRUMAN: We have to assume he is dead.
TRUMAN: A shame, I would have liked to shake his hand.
Description: Truman has sat down again. His expression is even more dire now, if that's even possible. He is taking one of his hands to his forehead.
TRUMAN: The American people have lost their president AND their greatest war symbol.
TRUMAN: In the same month.
TRUMAN: Morale is clearly down. Our enemies will try to take advantage of this moment.
Description: Truman is now signing something on his desk with a pen.
TRUMAN: Call Project Manhattan. Tell them we lost one super weapon already, we will need the other one ready for use as soon as possible.
TRUMAN: And may posterity forgive us for our actions.
