Great history lesson about comics but the liberal agenda ugh
3 May 2017 | by trimblairSee all my reviews

Loved most of this but the liberal message was pushed with comparing Bernie Sanders to Captain America (don't remember Cap taking a lake house as a bribe to endorse his evil enemy). Also Gloria Steinum might have been a Wonder Woman fan and enjoyed burning bras but she also is a heavy supporter of killing babies. And the X-Men? Most fans realize Brian Singer has been awful for that series. Too bad -- could have been a good show.
