Kurt Busiek, apologist for Marvel's destroyers

No surprise at this point Busiek would side with Alonso/Brevoort/Spencer's take on Captain America:

I think Busiek should exit the field entirely if he never liked the creations he worked on 2-3 decades ago. If he's got no respect for the ideals the characters were created to stand for, then he had no business taking the assignments years before with Avengers members.

Later, when somebody else points to one of Joe Simon's children taking issue with the Cap-as-Hydra-terrorist angle, all he could say was:

So nobody else has the right to say whether they think this was in poor taste? Pretty low, and only proves Busiek's no longer fit to script Marvel/DC. How is it that nobody else's opinion matters? If no one's allowed to protest a denigration of any superheroes/co-stars, major or minor, then even the relatives of the original artists aren't either.

It's regrettable that Busiek's so shallow, he'll even contradict any respect he claims to have for Jewish creators. Like a number of other irrational liberals today, he turns out to be somebody who was never in it for the glory; only the money. He may have once been suited for scripting Marvel/DC heroes. But no longer. I hesitate to think what his takes would be one them, were he assigned to work on them today.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
