Captain America Joins the ACLU
Sweet mother of mercy, is there no safe haven for children these days? Marvel comics has decided to take on the political issue (though they label it "topical") civil liberties. When I started reading this article, I thought to myself... wow, this IS a big moment in comic book history. Spiderman revealing his identity? Monumental. Surely there must be a very painful, logical reason for this to happen. Turns out, the government had passed the "Super-Hero Registration Act, requiring all superheroes to reveal their identities and register as "'living weapons of mass destruction.'" But while spiders are in favor of the new act, champions of patriotism like Captain America are steadfastly against it! I used to love comic books, but apparently they aren't written for kids anymore. It's a shame, really.
