Busiek must surely take the side of J. Jonah Jameson

Kurt Busiek's recently been lashing out at Donald Trump in the most cynical ways possible. For example, in response to Trump's "Make America Great Again" advertising, he says:

Umm, what proof do you have Trump actually pays for his account? The verification symbol maybe, but I thought Twitter was a free service. In any case, gee whiz, don't politicians always spend money for campaigning? What a lethargic bit of blather about something painfully obvious. And I guess he's got no comment on how Hilary paid herself $250,000 from her own campaign funds, huh?

I think this comment, in response to Trump's lamentation about the media not covering him honestly, gives us a good idea what Busiek really thinks of Spider-Man, and J. Jonah Jameson as the web-slinger's media adversary. Because he's putting Trump in the Spidey role while the press takes the role of JJJ.

And this, written in reply to Trump's comment about how the MSM is protecting Hilary Clinton, gives us a good idea what he thinks of the Teen Titans, and Bethany Snow as their media adversary. After all, she was protecting Brother Blood and his Scientology-style cult, which she'd secretly been a member of during the 1980-96 run.

As a result, one can only wonder why Busiek wanted to be a superhero writer in years past, and feel glad he hasn't been for a while. His positions here only suggest he doesn't have much faith in the components of the mainstream superhero world.

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.
