Captain America might have met his biggest fan in Congress after visiting the Capitol this week.
Chris Evans, superhero star in the Marvel movie, had anything but an ordinary encounter with Rep. Dan Crenshaw during his visit to Washington.
Evans and Crenshaw, who represents Texas’ 2nd Congressional District, seemed to hit it off when they first met.
Moments later, Crenshaw lifted his eye patch to show off his Captain America-inspired glass eye to Evans. The eye resembles Captain America’s shield and has a five-point, white star in the middle that is surrounded by circles.
Crenshaw later tweeted a picture of the Evans and the eye with the caption, “When Captain America sees your Captain America glass eye. #merica”
The photo has since received over 16,000 retweets and 92,000 likes.
Evans tweeted back saying, “A VERY cool use of vibranium” in reference to the indestructible, fictional metal in Captain America’s shield.
Evans’ tweet also received a large amount of engagement.
Crenshaw was on his third deployment as a U.S. Navy SEAL when he lost his right eye from an IED blast in 2012. He was quick to recover and was deployed twice more before he was medically retired in 2016.
Evans also met with Rep. Tim Scott of South Carolina and Sen. Johnny Isakson of Georgia.
