Reply Subj: A post CW Marvel and the SHRA is still a flaming pile of crap and Tony is an idiot.

I just read Captain America #25, NA #28, and Mighty Avengers #1 which has provoked some CW thoughts.

Now, to be fair, Ironman tried to make the best of a bad situation...but he's still a moron for supporting this. Here's a couple of points that have been argued in support of the SHRA.

The will of the people. Supposedly there the ones who want the SHRA but they didn't seem too happy when Cap was going to court being dragged around like a common criminal. What did there signs say? Oh yeah, "free Captain America" even though he broke the precious law. Hell, I even saw a few "SHRA is fascist" type signs in the crowd. So exactly which people are we talking about?

Property damage. This is just plain stupid. In Mighty Avengers there fighting a bunch of giant monsters and Ms. Marvel is worried about property damage? Even worse the govt. is gonna give them a hard time about it? There's no good reason for that other then some far fetched example of a hospital losing power which is in no way shape or form the heroes fault since it's the VILLIANS who are to blame since they attacked in the first place. Everyone loves to use the Military as an example for the SHRA (which is specious) so do you really think the Marines would give a damn about property damage in a war?

Controlling things from within. Supposedly as director of SHIELD Ironman can keep things reasonable except that in Mighty Avengers he makes it clear he doesn't have control since if they don't bring in the New Avengers "they" will. Crap crap crap.

I'm sure I'll think of more later but I gots to go.

I think he acted more rationally, and Cap finally realised this at the end, throughout SHRA. Stark acted like an adult. It made Cap look real bad, IMO.

Obviously Cap supporters would be outside court. Second, SHRA is as 'fascist' as regulating a Police Force. This whole series has been an over the top allegory for current events, which are also over the top.

I see SHRA more as an internal regulation of a 'militia.' More of a SWAT team/Police force regulation.

Seems logical, but, administrations change and even the best meaning things can go wrong. Which is how MARVEL will bring Cap back to save the day and fill their pockets some more..ooops.. \:D
