    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.


I'm not particularly optimistic about American politics at the moment either.


Neither am I, but these characters dont exist as weapons for the writer to use in a partizan personal vendetta against the Conservatives and any other person who doesnt like his work, they exist first and foremost to provide entertainment - something they are doing less and less.

A superhero comic story with a political undertone is fine - thats what the original X-Men did when they acted as a proxy for generic bigotry - but Spencer is writing a political story with a subtle superhero comic undertone, where the predominant thing you walk away with is his political feelings and opinions, rather than a kick ass story.
