My friends Dave Huber and Doug Ernst do a great job of documenting the non-stop stream of contempt that the comic book industry has for its audience and America. They both caught the latest garbage that Nick Spencer, who has a history of bashing Americans, spews in the pages of a Captain America comic book.
First, here is Dave’s take on it at his Colossus of Rhodey website.
“If it wasn’t bad enough that Captain America scribe Nick Spencer used one of Marvel’s most despicably racist villain groups to chide Americans who are against illegal immigration, now he is utilizing Cap’s deadliest enemy to castigate those who have issues with Middle Eastern immigration into Europe and how it’s changing its societies.
And Doug has more on it at the Washington Times.
The relaunch of Marvel’s red, white and blue avenger puts the ideological views of German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s critics into the mouth of Nazi villain “Red Skull.” …
“Your entire culture is under siege,” Red Skull continues to an American audience. “The principles your country was founded upon lost in the name of ‘tolerance.’ Your religion, your beliefs, your sense of community — all tossed aside like trash. And you cannot even speak out against it, lest you be called a bigot!”
“I Am Chaos” is a free short story set in the universe of Mortal Gods. I published it in full at Liberty Island. Two of the main characters are comic book writers, and they loathe their audiences and America. It’s such a common trait in real-life comic book writers and artists that I almost had to include it in my characters for the sake of verisimilitude.
People are abandoning comic books in droves. It’s a dying medium thanks to people like Nick Spencer. But prose isn’t dying. So avoid comic books and read prose instead. And a good place to start is “I Am Chaos.” I neither hate my audience nor Americans.
