On the other hand, if he stayed around they'd probably ruin him (cf. The Maker), so perhaps it's for the best that he goes out in a blaze of glory and disappears after the event. I only dread the inevitable subsequent pedestalization of normal Cap.

I'm guessing that he's saying that a hallmark of fascism is when a majority group that holds power claims that they are under "siege" or attack by a minority group and then uses that as justification to start abusing or attacking said minority group. But that's just how I interpreted the statement.

Is she going to prison? An unmarked grave? The parallels to actual attacks on journalists are too vivid for me. This is a real-world problem.

Nothing Sally Floyd has done remotely deserved being killed or thrown in a camp by a vindictive ruler. If people in this community think she deserved it, the implications of that scare me.

i believe he is stating that people will rage on Twitter , post hash tags and other symbolic gestures, but ultimately will do nothing that puts them out of their comfort zone.

There'll probably be a quote someday about the effective power of social media in the same vein as those Kurt Vonnegut/Peter Cook " effective power of satire " ones that've been doing the rounds.

That, and he was rebutting her other statements from the original Civil War of him not knowing the American people because he didn't watch NASCAR or use MySpace by bringing up how he actually knows about social media outlets like Twitter.

I don't get this, but I didn't get FRONT LINE #11 either. So it balanced out?

At least CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR made the fight about Bucky and Zemo, not about if Steve Rogers watches NASCAR.

I think the current story is that the Magneto who attacked at the end of Morrison's run was just Xorn Kuan-Yin pretending to be Magneto (pretending to be Xorn...)

And then they introduced Kuan-Yin's twin brother Xorn Shen, who was depowered on M-Day but got his powers back off panel and has been an ally to the X-men and operating out of a monastery in Tibet since Secret Wars ended.

I gotta admit, I can think of few better ways to get on Magneto's good side than handing him the severed head of the Red Skull. And hey, it's not like Eric has ever had that much of a problem with fascism when it benefits him and doesn't target his people.

I also really hope this doesn't end with Steve just getting turned back, but with Good Steve getting a separate physical body and getting into an epic throwdown with Evil Steve.

I find myself running hot and cold with Spencer, but this is pretty good.

This time Sally Floyd is right, but the lingering distaste is such that you don't feel as bad as you should. That closing line should be in the dictionary under Sick Fucking Burn.

Spencer has at least made Hydra-Cap three-dimensional. And offering the Red Skull's...um, skull...to Magneto? That's master-class manipulation, there. "We both know you can't trust me to help you, but how's about we help each other FOR NOW" is a pretty decent approach.

"Today, I am playing the part of Adolf Hitler. You will be Joseph Stalin. We will divide California as they divided the Baltic region, by a treaty I will break in three years to invade you. By that time, I hope to have the technology and logistics to murder millions of your people. Sound good?"

I know that Magneto has mellowed a bit, but honestly? I think Magnus might have been justified in pulling some scrap metal in from outside and impaling evil!Steve right there. And if this monster weren't running around with the face of good guy Captain America, that might have been the most character-consistent end to that scene.

Well, maybe just keeping Steve locked up in a high-tech cage would be more consistent.
