...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.
No, it isnt - although he has become much more vocal in recent years thanks to the rise of social media, and I think it shows in his writing more than it used to.
I'm not bothered by him being a liberal - I'M a Liberal. What bothers me is bias, and that doesnt become a positive thing just because its liberal bias.
I accept he has to play the hand the previous writer dealt him, but I'm apprehensive about how he'll do that, especially as he told me personally that If i disliked Spencers work (which I did), I'll hate his.
