In Ratatouille, Anton Ego (voiced by Peter O’Toole) is an acerbic food critic whose reviews can make or break a restaurant. He rejects the notion that just anyone can cook, but when Alfredo Linguini and Remy serve him up a simple peasant dish, it disarms Ego by returning him to his childhood memory of his mother cooking.
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.

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.

He looks just a bit amateur compared to when he wears the Spider-Man costume made for him by Tony Stark.
