Captain America actor Chris Evans visited the Capitol over the past couple of day which led to this bada** encounter where former Navy SEAL and real-life superhero Rep. Dan Crenshaw of Texas showed the Hollywood Avenger his Captain America-themed glass eye:

Evans visited with a number of other Congressmen and Senators, given each a nice photo-op to promote their pet issues, although not everyone really understood “Hey, I’d like you to meet with Captain America today.” Here’s Jennifer DeCasper from Tim Scott’s office: WHICH MEDIA OUTLET IS CAPTAIN AMERICA FROM?
BOSS: I have to go interview w/ Chris Evans.
ME: Uh, ok. Which outlet is he with?
BOSS: IDK. America?
ME: What? Why? I’m confused.
BOSS: He wants to talk bipartisanship.
ME: WHO IS CHRIS EVANS?
-get to interview-

Here are some of the other photos we’ve seen:
Enjoyed talking with @chrisevans as @VAChair about how we’re leading the way in bipartisanship in the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee to ensure our veterans receive the best care. #CaptainAmerica and I also discussed why trade relationships with our neighbors is vital. pic.twitter.com/GxU6iHHXpN

Great to meet @ChrisEvans this morning and talk education, workforce development, criminal justice reform and bipartisanship. Thankfully, neither of us turned to dust at the end. pic.twitter.com/yRmhQpyS5g

Spent some time with Captain America himself to discuss important issues such as immigration reform, voting rights, and the need to address climate change. Thanks @ChrisEvans for your advocacy ! pic.twitter.com/7pcCljOKYD
