| Great history lesson about comics but the liberal agenda ugh
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.
