CAPTAIN AMERICA vs. TEABAGGERS!
America's patriotic superhero, Captain America, seen here slugging Hitler in issue no. 1, ten months before Pearl Harbor, is at it again fighting FASCISTS in issue 602, in which he and his African American buddy, Falcon, investigate and infiltrate a right-wing anti-government militia that looks an awful lot like a Teabagger demonstration. Notice the authentic details (lily-white loons and "Tea Bag the Libs..." sign, among others) in a street scene reminiscent of Les Misérables.
When the Teabaggers protested -- how stupid is that, objecting to comic book immortality?! -- being accurately portrayed by America's liberal! Comic Book media, Marvel Comics editor-in-chief Joe Quesada apologized and promised to remove offending references to "Tea bag" from future issues. INSTANT COLLECTOR'S EDITION!
GO GET 'EM, CAPTAIN AMERICA!
