Oliver Mannions thoughts on Patriotic Superheroes

Canada Goose online Or more canada goose outlet toronto factory specifically American Patriotic heroes. Canada Goose online

Canada Goose Outlet Wonder Woman has gotten a costume change. No some people don’t like it canada goose outlet las vegas because it isn’t Wonder Woman (or really because we comic book fans will complain about anything). I canada goose premium outlet like it. It’s a cool and different look for her. Canada Goose Outlet

Canada Goose Jackets Anyway some people were complaining that her new costume down played the American flag part and how she wasn’t as American anymore. These people have obviously not read a real comic book in years. Wonder Woman isn’t American. She is an Amazon! If you want a real nationality she’s Greek. The only reason her costume was like the American flag was because she was created back in when World War 2 was going canada goose jacket outlet on. When Patriotism canada goose outlet authentic was in the air. But she was always an Amazon. Canada Goose Jackets

buy canada goose jacket About Captain America. Where to begin? Well some canada goose outlet real people (again people who probably haven’t read a comic book in yearsor in their life) complain how he is not going to be a huge flag waver for America in the movie. He hasn’t be like that since World War 2. And I haven’t read any one his original comics so maybe he wasn’t like that even then. Anyway canada goose outlet website legit in his own word, “I’m loyal canada goose outlet in toronto to nothing General except the [American] dream.” He fought against the government in Civil War. Well don’t get me started on why basically the people in Marvel are idiots and Tony Stark was a major jerk. Anyway he fought against the government with a full force of heroes because they were taking away Civil Liberties. What most people don’t understand about heroes like Captain America is they are not loyal to the United States government only the ideals of the country. buy canada goose jacket

canada goose coats on sale The game Freedom Force has a superhero named Minuteman who is loyal to just the government. He’s ridiculous. His sidekick Liberty Lad is devoted to the ideals and is a lot less ridiculous. At least in the second game. In the first he’s ridiculous for other reasons. Anyway I have only one piece of advice for people who think that patriotic heroes should be like canada goose outlet toronto location Minuteman. canada goose coats on canada goose outlet montreal sale

canada canada goose outlet seattle goose Re Captain America, I call the WW2 era generally gung ho. However, at that time, with real Fascism on the march, the idea of the government and “America” being two different things was not seriously entertained. It may be the one time this was not necessarily canada goose jacket uk a bad thing. canada goose

canada goose black friday sale You probably aren aware of the canada goose clothing uk makeover Wonder Woman got in the early 70s (partially but not seriously as a response to canada goose outlet feminism). She no longer had a “superhero costume” at all, more of a white jumpsuit or pants suit. The covers canada goose outlet 2015 emphasized that she was canada goose outlet kokemuksia Diana canada goose outlet sale Prince as much as Wonder Woman. (They also emphasized victimization, but that another story.) I don recall if DC at that time “officially” stated that basically Wonder Woman no longer had a secret identity or indeed did not exist outside of the Diana Prince persona. canada goose black friday sale

canada goose coats Well canada goose parka outlet uk said Oliver. I not sure which comics of his you have read, but there are plenty of other examples.

canada canada goose outlet new york city goose clearance Still, I feel like the people complaining about this will complain about anything that isn jingoistic American nationalism regardless of how much they know about it. Freedom fries all over again. canada goose clearance

buy canada goose jacket cheap Oliver, you exactly right. The people who tend to get the most “outraged” over some change in a comic book typically don read comic books. Similarly, every so often news stations interview people who don go to the movies and wouldn anyway to complain about what Hollywood making. Catering to people who don buy your product canada goose outlet online reviews and probably never will doesn make for a good business plan. It not as bad as the whole Seduction of the Innocent shtick, but it related in spirit. (Actual comic book fans and readers are free to criticize away, of course.) buy canada goose jacket cheap.
