Caution: Read at your own risk
Personally I don’t like the idea of having a country name ‘America’ as Superhero. It is an obvious attempt to imply the message itself, ‘America’. Knowing the fact that it was published in the same time line where World War II happens, and their first comic showed how the Captain America punches the Nazi’s face. That is an indirect/direct way of telling what the American’s wish to win the war.
As mentioned here:
Simon said Captain America was a consciously political creation; he and Kirby were morally repulsed by the actions of Nazi Germany in the years leading up to the United States’ involvement in World War II and felt war was inevitable: “The opponents to the war were all quite well organized. We wanted to have our say too.”
Captain America Comics #1 — cover-dated March 1941 and on sale in December 1940, a year before the attack on Pearl Harbor, but a full year into World War II — showed the protagonist punching Nazi leader Adolf Hitler in the jaw; it sold nearly one million copies – wikipedia
The WWII was not about a cruel leader conquering Europe but it was more of Capitalism VS Socialism. I support neither. For war doesn’t benefit anyone but those who funds the war: suppliers for war machines, medicine , and investors waiting to construct the buildings in a certain country that will be destroyed.

Now, Ive seen The Avengers, I felt that the least character I like is Captain America. Probably because he is the only one who was not mutated ‘normally’ by some meteorites and stuff like that b ut the fact that he is a product of America’s advanced scientific research experiment.
However, just like Superman, they try to make it seem like another Superman but this one comes from America instead and a (Super) human. It is also implies the intention of America in creating a Super human or at least Robot with such technology like Tony Stark (whom you can relate easily on why it is a very lucrative business to invest in). Imagine with only one IronMan, how many countries can be destroyed by such technology?
And this is what’s happening, war being orchestrated, planned, and purposely created such like Iraq,Afghanistan and now Syria? What they want is not just the country, but as well as testing the latest weapon/technology in the name of war.
Saddam Hussein, Osama Ben Laden, and whoever was brought down from their power are only puppets that they no longer find them useful. Saddam Hussein’s won a war back then FUNDED by America, there was picture everywhere that there was a diplomatic ties. And now that he is no longer relevant to be used, they took him down and place another puppet. The recent Egypt Revolution, just think why would anyone be brought down only to be replaced by someone who takes out IMF loan? Have you seen how Greece,Ireland,Spain are doing now? Have you seen how Indonesia who is STILL paying for their IMF debt which is increasing every year and never able to pay off since 1997 Asian Financial crisis?
No I dont blame America, the problem is we are using paper money, backed with NOTHING. The paper money, when it is easily printed, without any backing, or usng a real value like gold/silver. Will only enable countries like America or people who have more ‘paper money’ to fund all these wars and control the economy to only a handful of few.
The result is, we – the people – are the one’s who is paying the tax to fund these wars. And the consequences is that we are the one’s who had to pay more paper money to buy the same thing we use for the past years. And yet, the $50 we have now is not the same (buying power) by next year.
Every year, there will be 30% increase inflation, that only means, the price of goods and service will increase by 30% and so does the rest domino effect like employment etc. Inflation is not price about going up, but the VALUE of the paper going DOWN. And if we don’t start to do something about it, say protect our wealth by turning our papers into tangible assets or slowly acquiring gold or silver bar/coins – any form of tangible assets to prepare ourselves from the next crash.
Forget about Palestine, your own country, yourself, and the next generations after generations will forever be in debt. In Japan, the debt is already made legal that its transferable to your children when you die, I am not sure if they are aware of that but it will always make you be in debt. That is what they want you to be, to be the slave of debt,starting from your loan, credit card, and many other things.
Just my opinion.
