    This is all Captain America's fault.

He and Roz opened their home and their hearts to pretty much everyone, without prejudice - I met all sorts of interesting and unusual people at their house. Sue was, by that time, semi-openly gay (she never spoke about it, but she didn't exactly hide it, either). Being out was something of a rarity in the early 70s, but Jack and Roz were proud of her and their love was unconditional.

    I suspect Jack's crowd images might have included a sprinkling of non-WASP faces, but I feel certain he would have been appalled at the kind of things typically seen at Tea Party rallies (conspiracy theories about Obama's heritage, rants about socialism/fascism/Nazism, images of Obama as an African warrior, as Hitler, as The Joker, etc.), and wouldn't have hesitated to produce something quite similar to this Marvel piece.
    Didn't know him at all, but I certainly see things that appall me.

    So the libtards running a comic book company are employing traditional Progressive political ploys like "smear and lie" and the libtards on this forum like it.

    Not too surprising.

    Then again, since I'm an adult, I don't read comic books and would never have known about Marvel's idiocy if I wasn't told.

    I'm not surprised that so many socialists and liberals read comics still.

    They learned well from the master Karl Rove.
