It's an epic battle for the ages; Superman vs. Captain American... or Captain "anti-America" for that matter.
Dean Cain, best known for his iconic portrayal of Superman, called out Marvel Comic's 'United States of Captain America' for it's anti-American rhetoric.
In the new issue, Captain America questions what exactly he is fighting to uphold, worrying that he is part of the systemic problem plaguing our country. "I'm starting to think America has two dreams," he laments. "And one lie. The first American dream is the one that isn't real. It's one some people just expect to be handed to them." Blah blah blah.... something about "white picket fence fallacy." Blah blah. Woe is me!
Well, this sullying of America did not sit well with Superman Dean Cain. “I am on the exact opposite side of the fence. I love this country. It’s not perfect. We are constantly striving for a more perfect union, as we all know. But I believe she’s the most fair, equitable country ever with more opportunity than anyone’s ever seen,” said Cain.
In Captain America's debut comic in 1941, the character was featured punching out Hitler. Now his greatest enemy is the American dream? I'm starting to question who are the heroes and who are actually the villains. #Truthbomber
