    Well, Cap's not a Nazi, he's a fascist. It's a difference worth pointing out because in the real world, the GOP is definitely trying to lead the country into fascism, and Right wing media has been encouraging fascist tendencies for decades. In the real world, you can get the GOP to denounce Nazism and racism (after several days of hemming, hawing, and hiding) but the fascism remains, and the President still aspires to authoritarianism.


I don't entirely disagree about the Republicans. But I think you deserved the reactions you got when you brought up people not liking long established characters being replaced with new characters designed to promote diversity. I don't want to be lumped in with Nazis and Republicans just because I don't like say Sam Alexander as Nova or Riri as Iron Man.

    So HydraCap still is a relevant comment on Right Wing culture in America, and still a reflection of what the right wing propaganda machine via FOX and the radio talkers call for openly. Many, many people voted for Trump. Why don't those people like reading a story where HydraCap basically takes those fantasies all the way?
