Marvel has carved out its place not only in Hollywood but in the heart of audience as well with its ever-growing Marvel Cinematic Universe. The foundation stone of which was laid by Robert Downey Jr. and Kevin Feige with Iron Man. From that moment on it has grown to such an extent that no other movie franchise across the galaxy can catch up in the foreseeable future. Iron Man may have been the first member and initiator of Avengers Initiative, but it would have been nothing without the morals and ethics of Captain America. This super soldier character became the fan favourite from the very beginning with his Captain America The First Avenger.
Now over the years his character has got more depth, and following Avengers Infinity War, Captain America’s movies have been the most successful ones be it critically or financially. Captain America has kicked many asses in his journey of over 10 years in MCU. He has been able to move the Mjolnir with his bare hands making him the only worthy Avenger after Thor. We know that his role was quite small in Avengers Infinity War but in those few minutes of presence on screen, he was able to make Thanos sweat and the main reason behind it was his super strength.
If you remember in Captain America The First Avenger, Steve Rogers got his super strength from serum given to him by Dr. Erskine and by the end of the movie he sacrificed himself to save humanity. After almost 70 years he was brought to life when researchers found him in the frozen state. But here film left a huge loophole that how Steve Roger survived for these many years. We all assumed that it was because of the serum.
Now, the real reason behind his survival has been revealed at Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N at Treasure Island in Las Vegas. One of the Reddit user darthalexx22 uploaded a photo from the exhibition which provided the explanation which read “Physical examination of Capt. Rogers revealed that while thickened, his blood’s water was not frozen. Blood test revealed that his blood contained excessive amounts of glucose as a result of his liver processing his glycogen stores, thus lowering the freezing temperature of blood-borne water and creating a “cryoprotectant.” This process is similar to that of Water-Bears (Tardigrades) and hibernating Wood Frogs who metabolise glycogen in their liver to circulate copious amounts through their body to reduce the osmotic shrinkage of cells and stop from freezing. This, however, has never been seen before in humans.”
This explanation at Marvel Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. itself puts rest to our questions. The exhibition is designed to like a S.H.I.E.L.D. facility, which invites people to gain more knowledge about Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. The exhibit is open daily from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. inside of Las Vegas’ Treasure Island casino.
