    Nice expose of the marvel social social whiner, Chris.
    Now I would like to see a KFC logo on chicken-man and a shotgun,dbl barrel, aimed right at it.

    This Captain America ain’t Captain America. They took Sam Wilson, the Falcon, and a hero in his own right, and made him NewCap®, a marketing gimmick… a token.

  • interventor

    When they killed off the real Cap, I knew bad times were coming. Boycott Marvel crap. Sorry, Stan Lee.

    • Just repunctuate that to: “Sorry Stan Lee”. He’s a prog, a lib, a clintonite, a socialist. He’s everything the new Marvel is, he is their inspiration. He was just a bit more circumspect about it. Kind of a chickenshit chickenshit. Sorry, interventor.

      Chris…The Blue Hell; a purgatory of self-hating, social signaling natural cowards. I love it.

    The builders, protectors and nuturers of the Republic are now enemies of the State.

    • Solaratov

      That, in a nutshell, is why there’s a cold wind coming.

      • interventor

        Just hope not to end up like the last protector of the Roman republic — Senator Cicero.

  • I suppose it’s worth a “fair-use” quotation here.

    In the universities, in the churches, in the corporations, in the professional organizations, in the editorial offices, in the game studios, and just about everywhere else you can imagine, free speech and free thought are under siege by a group of fanatics as self-righteous as Savanarola, as ruthless as Stalin, as ambitious as Napoleon, and as crazy as Caligula.

    They are the Social Justice Warriors, the SJWs, the self-appointed thought police who have been running amok throughout the West since the dawn of the politically correct era in the 1990s. Their defining characteristics:

    • a philosophy of activism for activism’s sake

    • a dedication to rooting out behavior they deem problematic, offensive, or unacceptable in others

    • a custom of primarily identifying individuals by their sex, race, and sexual orientation

    • a hierarchy of intrinsic morality based on the identity politics of sex, race, and sexual orientation

    • a quasi-religious belief in equality, diversity, and the inevitability of progress

    • an assumption of bad faith on the part of all non-social justice warriors

    • an opinion that motivation matters more than consequences

    • a certainty that they are the only true and valid defenders of the oppressed

    • a habit of demanding that their opinions be enshrined as social custom and law

    • a tendency to possess a left-wing political identity

    • a willingness to deny science, history, logic, their past words, or any other aspect of reality that contradicts their current Narrative.

        Marvel pandered to them a long time ago. Check out any reference to “the Hellfire Club” in “X-Men”. The Black Queen (dressed like a dom and wielding a whip), the White Queen (who’s now married to Cyclops-?), the Black King (a dead ringer for Sir Francis Dashwood, the guy who founded the real Hell Raisers)- and oh yes, all their grunts are dressed in gimp suits, right down to the zipper-lip masks.

        Comic books died in the Nineties. Marvel was the executioner.

    Guess I’m done with Marvel, DC, and Archie comics altogether. Usetabe, they were Americans. Now, they’re Commie comics.

    • Problem is that they are written and edited in NYC. By kids today that went to east coast schools and lapped that PC load of manure up like it was chocolate.

  • You might want to watch the reaction of the crowd when Jim Webb answered the question about his enemy during the Democratic”debate”. You could get some mileage from it

  • Why in the Name of All that is Holy did I spend 20 years of my life protecting this nation against what it appears to have embraced? Oh for a time machine…

    • MasterDiver

      Amen, Brother. 38 years’ active and reserve service, and now I fit The State’s definition of a potential domestic terrorist. Perhaps I should be hung for a ram rather than a sheep…

      • Petercat

        You’re not alone, the Founding Fathers would be classified as “enemies of the State” today.
        Because this isn’t the State that they founded.

    Captain America now supports rape trees and is a traitor.

    Why the old Captain America must have supported Nazis and helped them invade the USA.

    Psycho progressives and Alinskyites rule much of the thought creation in children possibly.
    They are genocidal psychopaths intent on mass murder.

    And I thought that we had such a bright future when I was a child. I thought these metal defects could never gain a foothold.

    Was I wrong.

    It was heartening today speaking with a 90 year old United States Marine who sees that there is a war going on. He was quite sharp.
    It is an asymmetric war and it shall have to be defeated at every single infection site. The captain America concept is now infected. Stan Lee and Disney shall never receive another penny from me until or if they are cleansed.

    Good strip.

    I will remember the real Captain America.

      It’s all about “being transgressive”, kicking over the jams of “old skool” everything. Also putting heir own “mark” on everything, to prove that they’re “original thinkers”. About as original as Saul Alinsky, but WTH.

      It’s worth noting that they began mangling Cap (US Agent, etc.) right after Jack “King “Kirby died. Contrary to Marvel’s own mythology, Stan Lee and Kirby were not bosom buddies, in fact they could barely stand each other long enough to have a story conference.

      Kirby created Cap for the old Quality Comics line back just before WW2. And until his death, he held most of the rights to the character, including what Marvel could and couldn’t do with it.

      Fun fact; Cap’s powers were originally identical to Superman’s. That’s because Supes was originally a lot less powerful than even the “down-powered” modern version. The reason was that both were based on the central character of Philip Wylie’s 1932 SF novel, Gladiator. It was also the conceptual basis for Martin Caidin’s 1972 novel Cyborg, that inspired the 1970s TV series The Six Million Dollar Man.

      Kirby threatened to take Cap “elsewhere” several times over Lee’s trying to “modernize” the character. It’s worth noting that for the last ten years of his life, Kirby did no work for Marvel at all (His last major Marvel creation was The Eternals in 1973-74, later revamped as Captain Victory and the Galactic Rangers for Pacific in 1987), and Marvel’s big 25th anniversary celebration in 1989 made no mention of Kirby at all. That was when Lee somehow became the sole “creator” of the Marvel Universe. (Ignoring Kirby, John Verpoorten, John Romita Sr. and Jr., etc.)

      (OK, he was probably justified in ignoring John Byrne, even though he was the only artist they had who could draw a female character halfway well- and the only one who should have been ALLOWED to draw or write the She-Hulk and Tigra.)

      Marvel went down in flames in the Nineties partly due to the “Every issue a collector’s item with ten different covers and twenty different trading cards, which only keep their value if you keep it in the plastic bag, and oh BTW we’re printing 20,000 of each cover variation” BS. But mostly due to the mangling of nearly every character, mostly at Lee’s instigation. (I will never quite forgive him for making the She-Hulk a bimbette with more “boyfriends” than the whole damn Kardashian clan.)

      The one bright spot was the relaunch of the Fantastic Four in 1999. It would have made a much better movie than any of the movies did. Then Lee decided he didn’t like the “techno-thriller” ambiance, and scuttled it. (“Too Tom Clancy” was the excuse.)

      Lee may be the “guru” of Marvel. But all that proves is that following “gurus” tends to lead nowhere.

      Yes, I am an ex-comic fan. Accent on the “ex-” part.

          Thank you very much. I missed that one.

    Not all that long ago in the history of time some folks didn’t like the way things were going and so they swore to invest their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to change things and they did.
    And what do we do?
    We dedicate a little of our spare time to trash talk our laughing (at us) foes, seldom spend a penny fighting them and then we turn around and go back home with our tails between our legs.
    We are all talk and no walk.
    The country is run by traitors and perverts and an electorate who TWICE elected this kenyan pisslim smug resentful moral parasite to dictate to us all and not one of them has come to harm for it.
    He has urinated on America since he first got elected, he has violated the Constitution as if it was a joke, gave aid to our enemies and betrayed us at every step he took and he still struts around like a peacock in heat having sodomized the country to his pantywaist heart’s content every time his whims moved him.
    Perhaps it’s time to come to terms with this being the land of the sissies and the home of the pansies.
    Two and two make four.
    Let’s stop kidding ourselves.
    We are not going to stop them.
    Not that we couldn’t.
    It’s that we won’t.
    We know it.
    They know it.
    And now they are seriously (think about it!) considering the hitlabeast for the office.
    A plague infected rat would be a more appropriate choice.
    In the evil smelling world of hussein barry soetoro and his ilk Captain America should be a black communist pisslim pedophile lesbian and probably will soon be.

    I wasn’t allowed to read comics or Mad magazine as a kid but instead was allowed to read Scientific American. Probably the reason I’m a multi-millionaire engineer today. But even Sci Am went left so I won’t let my daughter (BSME ’17) read it. So I look for old textbooks that I give her.

      Comics weren’t allowed in my home growing up.
      It was National Geographic and Naval Proceedings.

      • eon

        I only picked up on them because some were like the SF I preferred. The rest of the time I was reading NatGeo, Popular Mechanics, and AW&ST.

        I gave up on Popular Science when they lost interest in the space program and became a “build a rollaway bar for your pool patoio while fighting pollution” magazine. Today they’ve gone “AGW DeepEco”, so I don’t even bother looking at the cover at the store anymore.

        About the only magazine I read regularly today is the Backwoodsman;

        I figure Wade reads it, probably Zed too.

  • I saw an article that said that at the end the original Captain America stepped in and stopped the new “Captain America” from attacking and told him to stand down. I did not read that comic so I only know what the article claimed.
