What the Steve Rogers corruption book has to tell now is just boring
Couched in a story about S.H.I.E.L.D., the Red Skull, and a grassroots rebellion vying for control over the government of Sokovia, a glimpse back into Steve’s history in the Hydra youth program reveals that though he was being groomed to take leadership in Hydra from a young age, being a pint-sized fascist didn’t save him any grief from bullies.The worst being the current staff at Marvel, of course. What's really distasteful here is how Newsarama's writers clearly have no issues with Spencer and company insulting the intellect of the fans.
And then, they "reveal" the most uninteresting "buddy" Steve's "had" since he was a kid in the Hydra program:
As we cut back to the present day, Steve speaks to Dr. Selvig about his plan to take down the Red Skull, revealing the secret that’s been hiding behind the locked door in Selvig’s lab, while simultaneously revealing the identity of the boy who helped him years ago, a boy he would “Trust with his life…”As I said, this is just not interesting. If anything, it's certainly offensive and insulting.
None other than Helmut Zemo, Red Skull’s rival for control of Hydra, missing since Steve seemingly defeated him in Captain America: Steve Rogers #1.
And that's not the only horrible story Marvel's pushing on everybody. Guess what turns up in the 15th Sam Wilson issue?
And who is there to give D-Man encouragement before the match? His boyfriend, teasing him about those delicious Hostess Fruit PiesAnd the panel they posted from the issue is just as groan-inducingly creepy as anything they've done of recent with Iceman over in X-Men. One can only wonder how many more characters Alonso's staff are going to turn gay out of nowhere, presumably under the confidence they can get away with it simply because characters like D-Man are minor players? The time couldn't be better to boycott Marvel, not because we want to, but because we have to.
