I'm seeing this Secret Empire event series and Captain America's recovery and redemption, liken to America recovering from its extreme national security brought on after nine-eleven, ...but,
So, in the 60s, Tales of Suspense, Cap retires.
In the 70s, hurt and disappointed with his government, Cap quits.
In the 80s, the Government wants to control Cap, Cap resigns.
Today, with this government, the President meets with Cap and says, "You're fired!"
Great story opportunity!!!
The story if anything is a commentary on the current state of American politics, the 2016 Presidential election, and the Trump administration - or at least the writers particular opinions on the matter.
