Captain America - Sam Wilson 019 (2017)

This was 20 pages more of true-to-life, wrongful-trial drama. More sux to be Rage framework. Shades of V for Vendetta coming. It told the story it wanted to tell. BUT...

1. Where's the Captain America superhero inspiration angle for the comic book (arc)?
2. How can they streeetch the story out so much with oversized panels - in the old days y'coulda told the exact same in 1/2 the page space (and given the readers a backup story bonus).
3. Did his Avengers even help (find Speed Demon) or did they just sit around (a table watching TV)?
4. And WTH is this? How impossible and/or unlikely does this Uber Birds scenario come across to you?!

Help the Cancer Society and the Alzheimer Society.

I detected a sneaky comparison of Rage to BLM poster boy Michael Brown when Harry Hausen paraphrases what the police said with regards to Brown when they mitigated the fact that he was 'only a teenager' by explaining that he was in fact a pretty damn big, strong, and violent teenager.

The main difference between Rage and Brown however is that Brown was guilty of the crime he was accused of - not that Nick Spencer seems to believe this.

Speed Demon met a lot of innocent people in jail, and they were all black apparantly. Yadda, yadda.

I spent a number of years working in the prison system and I didnt meet many innocent people of any skin colour. Sure, there are proportionally more ethnic minorities in the prison system, but there are much more relevant and proven reasons for that than racism - at least not the direct racism of corrupt police officers deliberately targeting black people and fitting them up that Spencer is clearly alluding to.

Sams video evidence isnt admissable and the court wants to challenge the legality of how it was obtained. Utter rubbish! Theres nothing illegal about getting your phone out to film a police incident even covertly, so I'm pretty sure that recording an incident via pigeon wouldnt be breaking any laws either.

As usual Spencer is trying to make a valid point, but as always he positively oozes bias and lacks any kind of balance, so what we end up with is a 100% white, 100% racist police force, enforcing 100% punitive and unjustafiable laws against a 100% black, 100% innocent community - absolutely nothing like real life of course.
