It's pretty clear to everyone (at least to everyone who has replied to your post) that you are equating all right-wingers with fascists (if not, then you did a pretty poor job of stating your point). Believing the actions of Cap are a fantasy for all right-wingers is a pretty extreme view, to say the least, and is a symptom of everything that is currently wrong in American politics. Assigning only the most extreme attributes to a group as a way to define that group is not rational. It is not even very clever.

I suppose there are extreme right-wing wackos who would enjoy seeing a world run the way HydraCap is doing things. Likewise, I assume there are left-wing nutjobs who fantasize about seeing Trump assassinated and would love to see it depicted in a comic. Most right-thinking people don't think this way, and neither do those on the left. However, if you think differently, please correct me.

Either way, you must be absolutely loving Spencer's depiction of the right.

Quantum asks 'why don't right wingers love the story?', and 'in what way is Hydra Cap not a right wing fantasy'.

Well its really very simple - not all right wingers are raving lunatics. Some occupy the centre-right, some the middle-right - and yes - some the far-right, but you seem to have an assumption that the political spectrum is some kind of journey, whereby if you stand somewhere on the right then your ultimate ambition must be to get as far to the right as possible.

That's a complete nonsense, and by that logic anyone who considers themselves as anywhere to the left must have an ambition to get as far left as they possibly can.

Wanting stronger border control probably makes you 'right wing'. That doesn't mean you want every immigrant to be put into a concentration camp though.
