Marvel continues to slide into creative insanity

We all know Captain America writer Nick Spencer is a raging social justice warrior "progressive" who thinks Republicans are evil, and just when you thought it -- he -- couldn't get any more crazy, we read this:

This week's Captain America: Steve Rogers #1 contained a huge twist that revealed that Steve Rogers, the recently returning Captain America, is an agent of Hydra, and seemingly may have been since his childhood.

Marvel Executive Editor Tom Brevoort shed some light on the reveal, with USA Today citing him as telling them that this is "the real Steve Rogers," and not "some clone, shapeshifting Skrull, Life Model Decoy or a Cap from an alternate universe."

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, writer Nick Spencer added to Brevoort’s statements that this is the real Steve, saying, “Issue 2 will lay a lot of our cards on the table in terms of what the new status quo is, but the one thing we can say unequivocally is: This is not a clone, not an imposter, not mind control, not someone else acting through Steve. This really is Steve Rogers, Captain America himself.”

“His mission is to further the goals and beliefs of Hydra," explained Brevoort.

This is the comicbook version of "clickbait," and it's beyond stupid. Almost as stupid as making Cap gay.

Brevoort even has the cojones to compare this drivel to the "Hitchcock tradition," and Spencer makes comparisons to Philip K. Dick's Man in the High Castle.

Puh-lease. You guys aren't even within a light-year of Hitchcock's and Dick's genius.

Anyone recall the mid-90s and something called "The Crossing"? This was when Tony Stark/Iron Man was supposed to have been an agent of Kang the Conqueror since the latter's first appearance way back in Avengers #8. That's right -- 30+ of continuity and all of sudden Iron Man is a murderous villain.

Oh, and when the Tony Stark we all know was killed, Marvel replaced him with a younger version of Stark. A college kid.

It is regarded today as one of Marvel's most ridiculous ideas of all time. I think it's safe to say this Cap nonsense will be too, in the years to come.

But hey -- it sure gives Spencer an avenue to trash patriotism, America, and everything else that victim-culture SJWs do.
