Skip to comments.Tea Party Jab to Be Zapped From Captain America Comic, Writer Says
Posted on 02/10/2010 9:38:16 AM PST by markomalley
A "tea bag" reference in a recent Captain America comic book that has angered the Tea Party movement will be removed by Marvel Comics in future editions, the story's writer told FoxNews.com.
In issue No. 602 of Captain America, "Two Americas, Part One," the title hero and The Falcon, a black superhero from New York City, stumble upon a protest rally in Boise, Idaho. They see scores of protesters carrying signs that say "Stop the Socialists!" and "Tea Bag The Libs Before They Tea Bag YOU!"
Captain America says the protest appears to be an "anti-tax thing," and The Falcon jokes that he likely would not be welcomed into the crowd of "angry white folks."
Ed Brubaker, who wrote the story, told FoxNews.com he did not write the "Tea Bag The Libs Before They Tea Bag YOU!" sign shown in the edition, insisting that the words were added by someone in "lettering or production" just before being shipped to the printer. It will be changed in subsequent editions, he said.

Captain America is a Communist?
At least a socialist. How else could the writers of the comic (or, if you buy this new spin, the letters?) portray a sign that says STOP THE SOCIALISTS as bad, if socialism were not a great good?
I’ve got to get to my local comic shop and see if they have any issues left and get them before they gone.
Notice the “Una bomber” knock off in the lower left hand corner of the graphic?
Well if anything the copies that got out will someday be worth booku bucks.
I didn’t realize that Marvel was a racist organization.
Notice how the depicted crowd is very much manifesting sour-pussed facial features, if not outright sinister, and also wearing dark shaded glasses.
Good eye! A little subliminal message from Marvel?
They look like a typical Leftist / Anarchist protest, and look nothing like an average Tea Party crowd.
IOW, they’ve just turned the first edition of the comic in to an instant, high-value, collector’s item.
I agree and will be right behind you. Could end up being a great investment.
Actually the sign doesn’t bother me. The real problem is this “The Falcon jokes that he likely would not be welcomed into the crowd of “angry white folks.””.
So the snide comment that anti-tax protesters are just racists gets a pass, but the sign is the problem?
How many reprints do they do these days?
They re-wrote Captain America to have a back story of 100s of black guys experimented on before they got to the formula for the white Captain America.
Most went crazy, become monsters, and/or were killed by the evil US military.
A handful survived, one of which is “Black Captain America.”
Typical liberal tripe.
Anyone who has read the Unibomber manifesto knows Algore really wrote it.
So someone in the Marvel-Disney organization made an editorial decision to make some changes.
But will this individual ever be named?
"Memo to Bachman and the rest of the tea crowd -- We had a revolution already, it's called an election," Brubaker tweeted on Nov. 5.
Translation: "Sit down and SHUT UP."
Land of the taxed, home of the sheep.
I am predicting a steep drop in Marvel Comic sales - at leas among patriots who thought ‘Captain America’ FOUGHT COMMUNISTS AND SOCIALISTS!!!
Captain America was a lobbyist for passage of McCain-Feingold.
TOO LATE LIARS!
Have you taken the quiz?
PARENTS, BE AWARE OF WHAT COMIC BOOKS YOUR KID IS READING! HOW INSIDIOUS CAN THE ANTI-AMICANS BE! OUR KIDS HAVE IT COMING AT THEM FROM EVERY ANGLE. IT’S TIME THE CONSTITUTION LOVING, SMALL GOVERNMENT WRITERS GOT INTO THE COMIC BOOK WRITING BUSINESS! AND LET US PRAY THEY WON’T HAVE TO BE SELF PUBLISHING!
So our liberal heroes are trying to infiltrate a right-wing extremist, wacko, fringe kook, evil militia group that's no doubt also racist, sexist, homophobic, etc. Why, they probably don't even recycle! Gee...I guess it can only happen in Idaho, eh? I love this state, if for no other reason that our very existence scares the hell out of the pants-wetting CommieLibs!
Scouts Out! Cavalry Ho!
Bingo! Capn “America” has gone socialist, just like GI Joe went UN.
These idiots are going to kill their golden goose with this leftdolt bias, just like the LSM has...

I Remember one from the mid 1980s in which the monster had a silhouette profile of Ronald Reagan.
I think it fairly clear that the politics of Brubaker is socialist federalism, hence the attack on anti-socialist believers in the Constitutional Republic, with limited government, and checks and balances.
His notion that the election turns the Constitution up side down is mistaken, albeit is in grave danger, of course. But this socialist needs to know that the election of "the One"...and indeed, the entire RAT majority, was under false pretenses, such that a number of RINOs cheerfully voted for him under the clear delusion that he was much more moderate than the radical his history...and books... clearly indicated he was.
Hence, there was never any legitimate mandate for his communist agenda to be implemented. The only time he would declare his real agenda was in front of friendly pro-communist audiences when he didn't think there were any cameras or adverse coverage to be worried about.
And when anyone dared utter the word "socialist" against him...he and his entire machine launched vendettas against them...ala' Joe the Plumber.
Captain America was the original American super hero who fought against NAZI’s and commies.
His character was a inspiration to rally public support against commies and nazis.
As a comic collector and a purist of the comic book era, the quality of comic content after about 1973 has diminished to the point of not worth collecting.
It’s not unusual for even older comics touching on issues like drug abuse, war, and personal struggles. But political hits against fellow patriotic Americans is unacceptable.
Anyone who would put Captain America or the Falcon, or any other super hero to the bashing of Americans, and especially white conservatives, should be outraged.
But knowing that Disney now owns Marvel, we will probably be exposed to a gay Superman or Wonder Woman. It’s how Disney rolls.
Don’t the writers realize that metros don’t read Marvel, but rather traditional value types
Originally, Captain America fought socialists (National Socialist Party of Germany), but now I guess he fights FOR socialists.
Stan Lee supported Hitlery and Bill.He’s the renowned comicbook artist.
Obama’s error is that he is on record saying that his popularity is dropping because he’s NOT getting his message out.
He was voted with a publicity campaign short of details but “high on promise”. “It’s historic”, “CHANGE”, “HOPE”, “Hollywood and hipsters adore me”.
The Left and Right are unfavorable of Obama’s first year for different reasons. This was also true of Bush’s low approval numbers but the media didn’t ever bring it up.
Now that the public has gotten a taste of what “CHANGES” he is bringing and his perpetual trash talking of this nation and no turn around in the economy, he is tanking among the “middle” crowd.
Writer. And he’s a figurehead in name only.
Where can one buy a comic book?
I haven’t seen a display of them in years...
Another addition to his back story: communist sympathy. They had Cap’s mom lose her house when he was a teenager, and the local communists help them move. Just a nice bunch of helpful people getting a bad rap from “the man”.
** we will probably be exposed to a gay Superman or Wonder Woman. Its how Disney rolls.***
I thought the SILVER SURFER was a fag.
I thought he was the artist! I know he’s not doing much these days,but...are you sure about that? I’ve seen him described in articles as “comic artist Stan Lee”.
I don’t watch Olberman. In fact, I think he is completely insane. And I mean that not as a put down. I mean it really. The guy is totally off his rocker.
But it is fun to watch him for a couple of minutes like a train wreck. He is hilariously funny sitting there so full of anger, hate and arrogant superiority and venom. He just fumes just hate and anger and hate, hate, and hate.
I bring this up because he seems to be the leading cheerleader of this vulgar and homosexual “tea-bagger” thing.
I don’t watch him much but when I do he seems to go out of his way to say tea-bagger once every minute or two. He is totally obsessed with it.
Not that it matters much. We all know his days are numbered.
I wonder what happened to him, and those like him, that makes them so full of rage for anyone different than them.
Oh Well, better them than me. I much prefer being happy, doing the right thing and living a good life.
Exactly, and one which, by odd coincidence, they've got a whole bunch of ready to parse out over the next ten years for a nice little extra income stream they'd never planned on.
"Oh don't throw me in that briar patch."
Liars! They thought it funny in their little liberal bubble but then had to face the real world where it isn’t so funny. Guess what Bozos many of us won’t be buying any of your products in the future so watch your profit drop until eveyrone responsible is no longer employed.
Those are DC characters.
Dedicated comic book stores. They usually deal in role-playing games and collector cards, too.
Boy, are the makers of this rag stupid or what? WHO do they think buys this comic, “Captain America”? Libtards probably wouldn’t allow a comic called Captain America in their house and likely won’t let their little darlings be exposed to comic books anyway . The libs are the ones always blathering about the “violence” in cartoons, ect. I wouldn’t be surprised to see this company need a bail out on a year or so.
Ok, ya got me. In my haste I failed to distinguish the Marvel from the DC character of Superman. If Disney had any control I think you get my drift. Maybe the XXX Men then.
