Captain America Vs.. The Tea Party

Ack!

Marvel Comic's Captain America is the mightiest soldier with the super powerful secret soldier formula that makes him a super man. Sadly, this muscle bound hero that took on the whole Nazi army during WWII seems to be afraid of those American people who've joined the Tea Party movement. Not only is Cappy quaking in his little red booties, but he's sure that the Tea Party folks are dangerous racists, too.

Isn't it wonderful that a decades old American comic book hero is now being used to turn readers against our very political system, being used to slander folks that are standing up for real American principles in real life -- and one called "Captain America" at that?

It's Bucky, not the REAL Captain America who died in the Civil War series but now is back to life the way all Marvel characters come back in some highly improbable plot twist but still, highly annoying. Then again, Bucky is supposed to be dead too.

It just seems to me that the comic series from both DC and Marvel have lost their way. Marvel has gone in this direction, and DC is basically relativist.

I'm with Barbara Nicolosi; superheroes should be, once again, well...heroic.

some of you are right, but some of you are wrong. this outrage is not just about the tea party. the real outrage is the ideal abuse of captain America's character. i understand if you feel that the tea party protesters are racist or all anti-gov, you might get all your information from the fringe media outlets that hope you believe their position by not telling you truth. marvel could have done that with spider man, or some other hero in a mask, but they did it with cap. this comic captain America, has been betrayed. marvel has used him to portray a very extremist view. captain America has always stayed by his on convictions, and never make ill will or fun of a peaceful group of protesters, as angry they may seam, but Oh yes some of them are very angry. but none so for or do i believe they will support violence, when there voice in peaceful protest gets so much more attention. i have seen captain America, leave the government after Nixon lied to the people, and he became the Nomad. And then he also fights uncle sam in a superhero civil war, where he quoted Mark Twain,

For in a republic, who is "the Country"? Is it the Government which is for the moment in the saddle? Why, the Government is merely a servant- merely a temporary servant; it cannot be its prerogative to determine what is right and what is wrong, and decide who is a patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them. Who, then, is "the Country"? Is it the newspaper? is it the pulpit? Is it the school superintendent? Why, these are mere parts of the country, not the whole of it; they have not command, they have only their little share in the command. They are but one in a thousand; it is in the thousand that command is lodged; they must determine what is right and what is wrong; they must decide who is a patriot and who isn't.
Who are the thousand--that is to say, who are "the Country"? In a monarchy, the king and his family are the country; in a republic it is the common voice of the people. Each of you, for himself, by himself and on his own responsibility, must speak. And it is a solemn and weighty responsibility, and not lightly to be flung aside at the bullying of pulpit, press, government, or the empty catch-phrases of politicians. Each must for himself alone decide what is right and what is wrong, and which course is patriotic and which isn't. You cannot shirk this and be a man. To decide it against your convictions is to be an unqualified and inexcusable traitor, both to yourself and to your country, let men label you as they may. If you alone of all the nation shall decide on way, and that way be the right way accordng to your convictions of the right, you have done your duty by yourself and by your country--hold up your head. You have nothing to be ashamed of.

its amazing Mark Twain wrote this a century ago, and American politics hasn't changed very much.

left or right, your days are done for. the people in the middle who stayed quit for all those years are now voicing there opinion, and they are tired of you selling them out. i did not fight in a war nobody cares about anymore, so marvel can turn my childhood hero into some liberal propaganda. own up to your mistake marvel, make this right, i'm sorry is not enough. or your fans will never come back, and history will show when the times were just right for captain America to voice his opinion, to show he stood against an over reaching uncle sam, or one that belittles the people, history will show marvel sold you out for their ideals, not yours. its a sad day in America when its captain forgets who his country is. and screw Bucky, nobody ever likes him.
