    But I'm curious, what is the difference between Spenser's "Captain America is really a Hydra-Nazi" run vs. the Gruenwald's "Cap gives up the Shield and Title and John Walker Comes in" in as far as exploring politics of the day.

    - l.k.



Gru addressed in a vague way what some consider political things (but in reality they were objective wrongs played against what American ideals stand for), but never at the expense of Captain America and he did not make the reader feel like there was a bias except for one time. Even when Gru let his one bias show during his run it wasn't blatant and it had nothing to do with Cap himself. He didn't even portray Walker as a stereotypical southerner either. Walker didn't get portrayed as such until Roger Stern, of all people, did it 20+ YEARS LATER, which shows either at best, Stern didn't do his homework or at worst, he let a bias show through.
