Dead at #25

The LA Times had a very nice guest editorial about Captain America on Friday that I want to share. It's a very cool summary of the history of the character and how the history of the country (back when it was the news) has shaped this character.

Is Marvel really saying that the USA has died? Are they right? Maybe, but there's probably still time for us to redeem ourselves and remember that war is not, in fact, peace and far reaching breaches of civil liberties are not the actions of freedom lovers. But read the editorial, it's much better.
