Quote: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.
Quote: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.
In theory I agree with your stance when it comes to most heroes. Except Captain America should you know...be kind of political. I don't like his generic fence sitting I'm for everybody stance. He never seems to have an opinion on a political issue. Other characters like say Iron Man or Daredevil have opinions they'll fight for...Steve gives up his individuality to be the corny embodiment of the country's values.
I'm not saying the story is good but I've never been a big fan of the bland Cap of yesteryear either. And Hickman ruined Cap a few years back during that Incursions mess. This is just the poop that comes out after the body dies.
