Alt✰Hero Comic Books: Fans fed up with politically correct DC/Marvel

October 21, 2017

It’s a frustrating, yet exciting, time to be part of the counter-culture. While all the big conglomerates seem stacked against us, there are a few bright spots. Recently, #comicsgate shone a spotlight on how unhappy fans are with Marvel, D.C. Comics, and other major players in the industry. The constant meddling and messing with well-loved superheroes and characters to mold them into feminist fantasies has worn very thin with the fans who are crying out for better material

‘The Avengers: Civil War’ – New World Order Elites demand control of all Super Heroes

May 7, 2016

In the new Marvel Comics blockbuster film “The Avengers: Civil War,” Captain America goes into battle – against the United Nations.

Cap doesn’t actually attack the UN, but he resists when 117 countries in the organization launch a proposal to monitor the activities of superheroes.

In the past Cap and his teammates – Iron Man, Hawkeye, the Hulk and others – have caused so much destruction protecting the world from external threats that the UN want to treat them as registered weapons. Every time the heroes have to spring into action they must first get clearance from a bureaucratic panel.

Captain America fights Fascist NSA in third film of the series

October 17, 2014

In 2014, it’s easy to think of Captain America as a bit of a tough sell. He’s a figure of an earlier time, and bringing him into the modern age has always meant a dance between sly retcons and outright hokeyness. He’s also a pain in the ass, sticking up for abstract ideas of justice and liberty when a lot of other heroes are content to just blow up the bad guy and move on. And then there’s that name: When the first Cap movie debuted in South Korea, it bore the unassuming title The First Avenger. After 60 years of military bases, having “America” in your hero’s name had become a marketing liability.


So far, Marvel’s solution has been to bring the conflict front and center, drawing on deep questions about American power that have become newly relevant in the wake of the Snowden leaks. The Winter Soldier was bleak, betraying a real pessimism about US intelligence operations, and if the third movie follows the Civil War plotline as Marvel has suggested, we’ll see things get even bleaker.

Honest Trailers – Captain America: The First Avenger

‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ targets drones and government spying on Americans

April 6, 2014

President Barack Obama’s name isn’t mentioned during the new superhero sequel Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
The president, and particularly his so-called errorist “kill list,” was still very much on the mind of co-director Joe Russo and his creative team.
Russo told Mother Jones that the filmmakers wanted to bring a political edge to the new film. So they read, and read, the latest headlines for inspiration. They didn’t have to look too far to find material that would flesh out Captain America’s latest adventure, even if they fail to directly connect the plot to Obama.
So [Anthony] and I just looked at the issues that were causing anxiety for us, because we read a lot and are politically inclined. And a lot of that stuff had to do with civil liberties issues, drone strikes, the president’s kill list, preemptive technology”—all themes they worked into the film, working closely with screenwriters Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely.
Captain America: The First Avenger finds our hero (Chris Evans) battling forces willing to use the government’s spy data for nefarious purposes.
The film marks Hollywood’s second project this year with Obama drones on its mind. The recent RoboCop reboot also explored the morality behind government-run drones.
