    Joe, I still object to the “Cap as a sleeper Hydra agent” storyline, though I know that nothing is forever in comics (and life, in general).

    Perhaps in a different context, I wouldn’t object so strongly to the storyline itself–it’s an imaginative and interesting idea–but in an America where a PRESIDENT conflates white supremacists and bigots and the KKK and Nazis–I won’t call them “neo-Nazis, a Nazi is a Nazi is a Nazi–with those citizens who demonstrate against them, in a world his advisors are men who object to people whose skin pigmentation is darker than their own, in a world in which those same me, including Mr. Trump, have a known history of demeaning and insulting and demonstrating hatred and prejudice against Muslims and Jews and any other religion that isn’t ostensibly “Christian,” I just can’t get behind the use of a comics character CREATED to symbolize everything that the idea of the United States of America stands and created by men whose parents were lucky–or smart–enough to get out of a Russia that regularly killed Jews and a Germany that was committed to the destruction of Jews and anyone else considered subhuman–whose relatives and extended families were undoubtedly destroyed by the Nazi wave of industrialized mass murder and genocide–

    It’s nothing but a SHANDA.
