I own an edition of collected Captain America black-and-white comics, which I personalize by coloring the stills with crayons, water-paints, and colored-pencils. Captain America (Marvel Comics) is a peoples' hero and represents a general social fascination with democracy and therefore has been used to 'trumpet' pro-capitalism rhetoric. While it's not surprising that we don't hear things like "Osama bin Laden is a big fan of Captain America," we should talk about how comics can speak to modern socio-cultural perspectives. Batman (DC Comics) tackles criminal insanity; Spider-Man (Marvel Comics) tackles evil mutants; but Captain America defends democracy and is the new Uncle Sam (from a pedestrian viewpoint of course). So this thread is meant to ask the question, "Is Captain America offensive?"
