In Commando, Colonel John Matrix (Arnold Schwarzenegger) is a retired Delta Force operator who’s brought back when mercenaries kidnap his daughter, and it’s not long before Matrix himself is abducted. It turns out the mercenaries are made up of members of his former unit who have been decommissioned for enjoying the killing too much, led by a former South American dictator who wishes to carry out a political assassination and kickstart a military coup.
In Captain America: The First Avenger, Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) receives an experimental serum, with the aid of Peggy Carter, to transform his frail body into the peak of human ability in order to contribute to the US’s war effort. After a military mission, he’s made to don this colorful costume and tour the country to raise war bonds.
