    Captain America - Sam Wilson 020

    The esoteric morality play on Civil Liberties continues. And it looks like it may have ended for Elvin. Social violence and legal injustices to be read but none of the fun superhero escapism kind. Harry Hauser pontificates about it (more facetime for Americops). Gideon Wilson pontificates about it (hey, that's JIM Wilson's dad!). Rage pontificates about it (before nameless Z-block inmates dogpile him to death). Sam continues to question and overanalyze his SJW skills [unlike his Avengers Leadership presentation] and understandably loses it when Claire Temple delivers the bad news. Next issue cover suggests may happen sooner than later.

    The art was NOT ..err.. all the rage but it is servicable enough - and those last 3 pages are positively poignantly penned.

    Was never his biggest fan but - poor Rage suffers being chosen for the plot device role.

    Support Cancer Research. Support Alzheimer Research.

Geez where are the New Warriors?

I hope someone tells Elvin's best friend Speedball. You would think Speedball would have asked his lawyer father for help considering how Robbie was smeared after the Stanford incident. And why wasn't Night Thrasher helping with Rage's defense fund? Or Namorita? And Justice works with the child advocacy group childwatch and Rage is a minor being railroaded.


Another case of 'dead men defrosting'

The only reason Rage dies in this story - just like Rhodes and Banner dying in CWII - is so that another character can have something to get angry and rightrous about.

Plenty of Spencers trademark liberal bias in play too, as he gives us a clear parody of the BLM movement, but a parody in which a 100% white, 100% racist police force enforce 100% punitive laws on a 100% black, 100% innocent community.

Sam cant even tell the public with conviction that violence isnt the solution, because in his heart he believes that it IS.

Of course if reality actually mirrored whatever goes on in Spencers addled mind then violence WOULD be justified, but of course in the real world this issue of how police relate to their communities and vice versa is a great deal more complicated, and heaven forbid that Spencer let the truth get in the way of his political mandate to try and tar all white people, conservatives, or cops with the same brush...
