His story was like Captain America; there’s a ton of Marvel characters that started out the same way as Ginger and I looked at him like that. There’s the person and then there’s the myth and the legend. As far as the myth goes, he did start out like Captain America. I mean, he goes and sees his dad off to WWII, breaks away from his mom and she’s crying because she doesn’t know if he’s ever coming back; then the Nazis bomb his neighborhood and the kids don’t show up for school and there’s empty desks and he’s living in a bomb shelter, and then his dad dies and it just creates this monster;  then when he’s 14 he receives the letter from his dad that’s like, “Dear son, learn to use your fists,” and he’s like, “Oh yeah, here we go!” He starts using his fists and, more importantly, he’s got this natural time and rhythm and so it’s like okay, don’t punch, use that to make this rhythm and then do that with this instrument, and he’s like eureka! It’s like this pre-destined thing and he had time and he was like this super hero, which is exciting to hear him tell me. I didn’t really go into it with ay expectations of what the story was about because I didn’t really know what the story was until he said it so.
