Marvel's value system in a nutshell

Via FCMM: Marvel's Tom Brevoort commented that Marvel would "certainly be interested in the abstract" in hiring legendary Frank Miller to do a Captain America story ... as long as it's not akin to the creator's Holy Terror tale.

But, as Avi Green notes, Marvel had little issue with the ridiculous Truth: Red, White, and Black Captain America tale which painted American scientists as on par with Nazis.

Get it? OK to portray the US as Hitleresque; not OK to have a symbol of America go after Islamic terrorists.

This is the modern value system that Marvel and DC (and some other companies) possess at the moment.

Marvel also didn't have issue with using Cap to bash the Tea Party--y'know, until people complained. Then Marvel performed the old "it's absolutely not what you think it is, but we're changing it anyway" song and dance.
