    Evans crouches down next to Edison, who extends his hand and shakes the hand of The First Avenger.  “Can I see your shield?” Evans asks and Edison hands his battered toy shield over.  “Wow, you’re getting a lot of use out of this. You fighting a lot of bad guys with this?” he asks.  Chris Evans and Edison proceed to have a conversation about the finer points of shields and fighting the enemy.
