    I remember hearing something awhile ago that little things would be slipped into comics as little statements or foreshadowing things to come. So if anyone has noticed anything else like this then go ahead and share. I was looking through civil war and I noticed that captain America held his shield in his right hand but in other comics he holds it in his left (Anyone know if he's lefty or righty) now I started thinking and maybe this is a foreshadow of war. If you look at a quarter the eagle on it the left side is leaves for peace and right side is arrows for war. Anyone with me on this. I also noticed that in the nine eleven issue of spidey cap is holding the shield in his right hand.

    Cap's ambidextrous. Don't you think someone at the peak of human performance would be able to use both hands equally?

    In ancient times, the left side was always taken to be unlucky. That's why the Latin word for "left" is sinister, from which the modern English word "sinister" is derived.

    But I don't think the hand Cap's holding his shield in has any kind of subtext attached to that.

    Yeah......That's looking a little too far into things.
