    Like it or not, the character of Captain America was conceived and created during WWII as the living embodiment of American idealism / exceptionalism. This, of course, does not sit well with the "progressive" minded people at Marvel and their associated Globalist paradigm.

That's why I never liked (the idea of) Steve. I guess I'm a globalist. I want the world to be better.

I would hate to see Cap written as an "America First" type of Captain America.

    As a result, over the years, it seems the writers have either tried to alter the character into someone more in line with their own political sensibilities (with varying degrees of success), or used him as an object to vent their political frustrations.

    I've been a reader since 1973 and I can tell you, I haven't enjoyed CA in MANY years. I actually dropped the book several years ago during Brubaker's run.

    I remain hopeful that one day Marvel will give us the old Cap back, perhaps someone more in line with the movie portrayals.
