MAKE MINE NOT MARVEL! Marvel Comics has made an incredibly sick and offensive move by revealing Captain America, the Word War II super hero created by Jewish immigrants to fight Hitler, to have been a Nazi for his entire 75 year history. This is an insult to fans, veterans and all those who see Captain America as a symbol of purity, goodness and America at its best. This goes beyond just a story or a publicity stunt and touches on issues and ideals way beyond “just a comic book.” To make matters worse, they did this reveal just before Memorial Day when we remember our armed forces who have lost their lives in war. I have dropped all Marvel titles as of immediately and urge everyone else to do the same. This is completely wrong and sick.
