"I absolutely believe you can write superhero comics where violence is either peripheral, or even entirely absent. The point of superhero comics is to inspire people to try to be their best selves. They're about people trying to help others and make the world a better place, not a more violent one. Now of course, they take place in a fantasy world where certain things, like vigilantism, are laudable. But even still- I try to find ways to make sure the violence is either justified by some moral criteria, or as an incomplete solution. Usually, the violence in my books is stuff that passes the time until someone comes up with the real solution. Though I've by no means got a perfect record on this front- again, fantasy world, "good" violence, all part of the show. Still try. Some superheroes really benefit from tacking towards nonviolence btw: Superman and Fantastic Four come to mind immediately. Cap, in my mind, comes very close to the line- he's a soldier, but he should always be reluctant to fight. Has to be a necessity. Same for Sam, btw, which is why my favorite arc is Americops, because really, it all kicks off with him trying to PREVENT a fight." -- Nick Spencer

"I have a really frustrating habit of having to read basically everything. I'm not one of these guys who can come on and take over a book and just read the previous arc or read the first issue. I need to feel very familiar with everything that's gone before. So if you're taking over for characters that have 30-plus year histories, you have a lot of homework. But the bottom-line is, if you do that, you start to see the sort of recurring themes and motifs of a character." -- Nick Spencer

"[Maria Hill] just makes every story that she’s in better. I think she’s one of the best creations at Marvel of the last generation." -- Nick Spencer

"She is, without a doubt, one of my absolute favorite Marvel characters to write. I would totally write 20 pages of just Maria Hill being a smart ass to various super heroes, month in and month out. I have pitched it numerous times." -- Nick Spencer

"Today is difficult, but cheering violence against speech, even of the most detestable, disgusting variety, is not a look that will age well." - Nick Spencer

"Look, if we're saying it's okay to commit acts of violence against people whose views we hate, we should put that paper." - Nick Spencer


Writer: J.M. DeMattis
Artist: Mike Zeck

So with Neo Nazi/White Nationalist/Alt-Right Darling/genocide advocating Richard Spencer getting punched, Nick Spencer came to his defense to say violence against him and his speech is a bad thing. It got a steamy between Nick and his Twitter followers, eventually getting to him about his views and writing on Captain America. During of which, he cites this issue as Captain America's views on his stance to fighting hate speech with violence.

A lot of websites done posts about this, but let's take a more in-depth look at the issue with its relation to Neo-Nazis, hate speech, and violence...

"I’ve got a real soft spot for Quasar. I was a big fan of the original Mark Gruenwald run as a kid, and my entire Cap run so far has been pretty much a love song to Gruenwald’s run on that character." -- Nick Spencer

'I will get flack for this but I think Sanders deserves more blame than he's getting. He went with some attacks that really hobbled her because they made her permanently unacceptable to some on the left, while also echoing the SAME claims as the right was making. Sanders gave a bipartisan credibility to the "corruption" thing that made it stick and made media fall in love with it even more. She was clearly badly hobbled coming out of that primary, and everyone kept pretending it was a good thing.' - Nick Spencer

'A story that I know influenced this and had a big impact on me when I was younger was the end of the John Walker saga in “Captain America”; when the Skull had his consciousness put in a body that looked like Steve Rogers. As a kid I had a visceral reaction to that. The idea of that was terrifying. So it stuck with me. It’s one of my all-time favorite Cap stories.' - Nick Spencer

"TPP would create a lot of American jobs. Free trade is a good thing. A trade deal with Asia is maybe the most important geo-political move the US can make for the next century. It is very scary that both political parties are now pushing protectionism. Will hurt workers, not help them." - Nick Spencer
