  • Comic Propaganda: Captain America joins the left; attacks American conservatives

    Coach is Right ^ | 10/21/15 | John C. Velisek USN (Ret.)
    So now we have Marvel Comics denigrating Americans who believe we should enforce immigration law. As a brand new symbol of diversity, Marvel’s racially altered Captain America should be called Captain Propaganda after the tool used so often by the left to indoctrinate America’s kids against the evils of preserving borders, language and culture in the United States. In the strip, we are given the picture of a “coyote” trying so hard to help illegal aliens begin a better life after smuggling them across the Mexican border. He gives them food and water and assists them in finding their way...

    It started with a bet between movie stars — and ended with both guys putting on their superhero costumes and visiting children’s hospitals. “Guardians of the Galaxy” star Chris Pratt and “Captain America” star Chris Evans set up a friendly wager on Twitter ahead of the 2015 Super Bowl: If Evans’ favorite team, the New England Patriots, won, Pratt would visit the Christopher’s Haven cancer charity in Boston dressed as Star-Lord, and if Pratt’s Seattle Seahawks won, Evans would visit Seattle Children’s Hospital dressed as Captain America.

    So I finally saw the new Captain America sequel (Oh, and there are spoilers ahead in case you’re planning to see it but are even lazier than I am). Off the bat, I enjoyed it. It moved along well. Good action, blah, blah, blah. Now, on to the controversies. The most pressing of which is the lunacy of Captain America’s shield. The physics make absolutely no sense. In the comics the shield is composed of adamantium, vibranium, and a certain lost/secret ingredient that made replicating the shield impossible. In the first Captain America movie they changed that, saying the shield...

    "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," the sequel to Marvel's 2011 film about the Red, White and Blue super hero, smashed its way to $96.2 million in weekend ticket sales, setting a new record for an April release and speeding past last week's winner, "Noah." The film, which stars Chris Evans as a scrawny World War Two reject given super powers from an experimental serum, easily exceeded the April take for the racing movie "Fast Five," which collected $86.2 million in ticket sales in April 2011. "Noah," starring Russell Crowe as the biblical figure, was second with $17 million in ticket...

    Seen close up on the 3D screen, actor Chris Evans’s ruddy lips, bright complexion, and sparkling eyes look like a Pop Art personification of red, white, and blue patriotism in Marvel Studios’ Captain American: The Winter Soldier. Referred to as “The greatest soldier of all time” by Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson), his paramilitary boss at S.H.I.E.L.D., Evans’s Steve Rogers, who was scientifically re-engineered into the ever-youthful, muscle-bound World War II veteran of the title, represents a timeless idea of American strength and virtue: “I’m 95, I’m not dead,” he tells flirtatious superhero colleague Natasha (Scarlett Johanssen).

    Captain America: The Winter Soldier is first and foremost a rousing sequel, the kind that makes you giddy that the Marvel movie pipeline is working at full capacity. It's also a film we're unlikely to see screened at the Obama White House thanks to its anti-NSA message. The new film offers some political undercurrents not seen in most superhero epics, from fears of government spying to the need for unvarnished transparency. It's all fused to a Marvel-approved template starring actors who know precisely how to bring two-dimensional characters to the big screen.

If you were worried about how the star-spangled superhero would translate from paneled page to live-action (especially after that '90s-movie-that-must-not-be-referenced-again), worry no more: the movie is great and absolutely worth the wait.

    LOS ANGELES - Captain America will keep its patriotic full title in most of the world when the superhero adventure hits the big-screen. Paramount Pictures and Marvel Studios gave distributors around the world the option of shortening the title of "Captain America: The First Avenger" to simply "The First Avenger," out of concern about anti-American sentiment. But the only countries that took them up on it were Russia, Ukraine and South Korea. In other territories, the movie will go out with the full title, a sign that the brand value of the Marvel Comics hero trumps any potential anti-U.S. feelings...

    Paramount and Marvel Studios have a bit of a marketing challenge on their hands with their upcoming Captain America: The First Avenger. Namely, how do you sell a pro-U.S.A superhero movie to the many regions of the globe that can't stand us? Their solution was to play it safe, and release the film in all foreign markets as just "The First Avenger." But then a wonderful thing happened. From the Times: [I]n a surprise, Paramount's overseas operation objected, arguing that Captain America had too much brand value, even in spots like France that are leery of embracing Team America too...

It looks like the makers of next year's Captain America movie in Hollywood have taken that Cappy-against-America theme for its new movie, too, because according to the film's director this film will feature a Captain America that is "not a flag-waver." Comics fans have been eagerly awaiting the expansion of Marvel's comics-based films with the ultimate fan dream of having a movie...

    California's Democrats have forced the upcoming Captain America movie to be filmed in England. Why would that be, Buckey? Because it's just too expensive to film the movie in California because of the Democrat's punitive taxes. For Yahoo Movies, Mike Ryan asks a seminal question: Should We Now Call Him 'Captain England'? In his lament, Ryan worries over the U.S. film industry as movies and TV shows flee America, specifically California, for the cheaper production rates of Canada and England. And now Democrats are so concerned with propping up union thugs, forcing themselves on the people at every avenue, and...

    Since 1941, Captain America has been one of the most popular comic book characters around. The fictional super-patriot fought Nazis during World War II, took on those who burned the American flag during the Vietnam era, and raked in hundreds of millions of dollars for Marvel Comics along the way. Now, the appearance that he is taking on the Tea Party Movement in a storyline about investigating white supremacists has forced Marvel to apologize for the comic hero. Issue 602 of the comic features Captain America investigating a right-wing anti-government militia group called "the Watchdogs". Hoping to infiltrate the group,...

Mr. Simon, 94, has a different take on it. “I call it the old-geezer table,” he said during a recent interview at his Midtown Manhattan apartment. Mr. Simon will take part in the “Legends Behind the Comic Books” panel at 3 p.m. on Friday, one of numerous events planned at the convention, a three-day celebration of all things comics. Mr. Simon earned the “legend” title with his partner Jack Kirby...

    There's a new Sentinel of Liberty - who carries a gun and shield - hitting the Marvel Universe. Last March, the world was stunned as Captain America, Steve Rogers, was gunned down on the steps of a court. Rogers was slated for a hearing regarding his criminal actions in the superhuman Civil War, one that saw dozens of heroes rebel against Tony Stark and his Registration Act. Since Captain America #25, the world has wondered if there would, or even could, be a new Captain America. Today we know the answer - this January, there will be. Marvel Comics has...

    Comic Book Hero 'Captain America' Killed Captain America has undertaken his last mission - at least for now. The venerable superhero is killed in the issue of his namesake comic that hit stands Wednesday, the Daily News reported. On the new edition's pages, a sniper shoots down the shield-wielding hero as he leaves a courthouse, according to the newspaper. It ends a long run for the stars-and-stripes-wearing character, created in 1941 to incarnate patriotic feeling during World War II. Over the years, an estimated 210 million copies of "Captain America" comic books, published by New York-based Marvel Entertainment Inc., have...

    NEW YORK (CNN) -- He fought and triumphed over Hitler, Tojo, international Communism and a host of supervillains, but he could not dodge a sniper's bullet. Comic book hero Captain America is dead.

    Captain America is dead. The Marvel Entertainment superhero, created in 1941 as a patriotic adversary for the Nazis, is killed off in Captain America #25, which hits the stands Wednesday. As Captain America emerges from a courthouse building, he is struck by a sniper's bullet in the shoulder and then hit again in the stomach, blood seeping out of his star-spangled costume. His death is sure to ignite controversy in the comic book world - still reeling from Superman's death in 1993 and resurrection the following year - and even political pundits, who may see Captain America's demise as an...

    Just a simple vanity of something I thought funny and ironic and wanted to share. From time to time, I go to the Marvel website and check out new stuff. They have a feature where you can read old and new comics online. I opened up an old Strange Tales featuring the Human Torch of the Fantastic Four. He is fighting some costumed character with the name of Destroyer - not the Destroyer that would later fight Thor. Anyway, the plot has the villian working for the coummunists (this story is from the early 60's). At the end when the...
