Actor Chris Evans has been fighting for democracy onscreen for years in his role as Marvel superhero Captain America. Now he's taking the fight to real Americans with the launch of his new online platform, A Starting Point.

Evans developed the website along with businessman Mark Kassen and tech entrepreneur Joe Kiani to address a growing problem with political discourse: that communication between Americans about political issues is approaching a level of strain that can seem insurmountable — to the point that many are giving up trying. The site’s founders feel the situation is unacceptable, as free, clear and accurate speech is a key component of a healthy democracy. A Starting Point is designed to become a solution that enriches communication between individual Americans and between citizens and their elected officials. But will people take Captain America’s political site seriously?
