...I mean, if you liked his work before, you'll probably get something like that again. It's not like he became liberal yesterday. This is the guy who gave the "Cap gives up his shield" speech in his American Civics class. But if I didn't tell you he was a liberal, would that have really come out if you read his previous runs?
I think the same will be with this run. You can't ignore what happened in the previous run. Not completely. The whole thing centered around Cap going all Nazi. But I think Waid found the more interesting route of the American public questioning the foundations of Captain America. That's different than, say, the government doing it.
Everyone trusted Cap before. Now people distrust him in a very fundamental way. That's an interesting way for Cap to build back up.
