This Hilarious Captain America Debate Was Finally Solved

Chris Evans' incredible tenure as Captain America concluded in 2019 via "Avengers: Endgame," sending him off in grand fashion. He helped bring back half of all life in the universe following the snap of Thanos' (Josh Brolin) fingers, wielded Mjolnir in battle, and assembled the ultimate Avengers team, but none of those accomplishments could hold a candle to what came after. Using the power of time travel, Steve Rogers was able to return to his own time, the 1940s, and happily live out his days with the love of his life, Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell).

Few would argue that this wasn't the perfect way to close the book on Steve Rogers' Marvel Cinematic Universe run, though not everyone was exactly thrilled to see him go. After all, there are still numerous lingering questions about his life and how events within it played out that plague fans to this very day. How did his trip through time to be with Peggy work? Did he actually square off against the Red Guardian (David Harbour), as the Russian super soldier boisterously proclaimed? Perhaps most intriguing of all, was the Star-Spangled Man a virgin?

This debate has raged within the MCU fandom for some time, with strong evidence arising on both sides of the fence. Thankfully though, we finally have a definitive answer to this persistent yet hilarious question from one of the most knowledgeable sources on the subject.

Of course Cap got lucky

The question of whether Steve Rogers has had sex or not came about when fans took a deep dive into his overall MCU timeline. Prior to taking the super soldier serum in the 1940s, he admitted that he'd hardly spoken to any women, let alone been romantically involved with one. Then, after bulking up, he spent some time as a glorified circus act before heading to the front lines of World War II. He was then frozen for around 70 years, only for S.H.I.E.L.D. to thaw him out and recruit him as an Avenger, which is a long-winded way of saying he's never had much time for pleasure.

It's also worth mentioning that Chris Evans himself has voiced his belief in Cap's enduring virginity, telling Entertainment Weekly (via Digital Spy) as much a few years ago. On the other hand, the writers behind the "Captain America" trilogy, Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, offered up a conflicting perspective. "I think he loses his virginity," said McFeely to Yahoo! Entertainment in July of 2021, mentioning that his time traveling around the nation selling war bonds surely presented him with the chance to do so. Markus adds, "Steve Rogers isn't a prude" and that "he's not a choir boy. He's a WWII veteran."

There it is, folks. After all these years, we finally know the status of Captain America's virginity in the MCU. Hopefully, the Marvel fandom can sleep a little easier from now on with this information in mind.
