also i haven't read a captain america comic since the end of the civil war run, but have they recreated his iconic punching hitler scene with him punching an alt-right pepe or are the writers aware enough of where their bread gets buttered that they won't cross that line

guess the writer

so wait, the villain is the blonde russian woman that wants to bring communism to the US? this is because she's also an agent of hydra or something, and not just because the prevalent narrative here is COMMUNISM = BAD right?

because if she's the villain for wanting to bring communism, i'm even more confused. i thought coates was regarded as a fairly progressive dude? just a neo-lib fuckboi like all of the other shitlib heroes?

shes a literal russian nazi-commie trying to interfere in american politics

i think it's possible he was trying to do a sorta radlib thing about how if you treat the poor badly they'll do stupid things like start a revolution maybe? idk havent seen it

p much. "give the poor some concessions or they will literally tear you apart like wild animals" has been a cornerstone of liberal thought since the french revolution

was new york still annihilated in the tv show timeline?

hasnt come up although you see a brief image of the twin towers flash by

if so, does the show make any effort to explain whether adrian's plan was ultimately successful?

it worked and robert redford has been president since 1992, but rorschach's journal was publicly released and became the ideological bible for alt-right terrorist groups

are all of dr manhattan's blimps and free energy stuff still around, or are they just inexplicably absent?
according to the supplemental materials most of his tech was destroyed in an international luddite reaction against dr manhattan's supposed cancer-causing powers, only very recently did they even bring back computers

quote:

how does it compare to The Boys on amazon? I really really liked that tv adaptation and i'm worried that the watchmen tv show is just going to be retreading the same conceptual space (what if super heroes were bad people) without enough to differentiate it. seems like watchmen is a smaller scope story focused more on racism?

idk yet but the Watchmen pilot was loving awesome

also one of the heroes in the pilot is a fat sandwich eating russian guy called Red Scare that fights in a soviet colored tracksuit

Modern Hawkeye in the comics is actually good because he's just the hosed up alcoholic team coach for better, younger superheroes

They don't even call him Hawkeye (as there's a better one) anymore, just Hawkguy

Hawkeye should have been like mcguyver as an Archer or something. Not even joking I think it'd be interesting if he had been not like a genius or anything but more like quick on his feet thinking of a plan. Just, he needs something in addition to the archery, that can't define him.

This is literally his character in the comics

Well that and really long panel spreads of him heisting something with his sidekick Pizza Dog

is Watchmen gonna be the next "cultural event" show for HBO now that GoT is finished and mostly forgotten about?

They're trying but it's actually Succession, that show is apparently a smash hit

Also the premiere of His Dark Materials crushed it despite being on Monday night

Man in high castle season 4 is a huge departure from the rest of the series in the best way

It went from "fighting nazis makes you just as bad as them" to a literal black communist revolution against the Japanese

Fascism played a large role in the creation of the Star Wars trilogy, with the story treatment notes for Star Wars (then-titled The Star Wars) made by series creator George Lucas in 1973 stating, among others, "Theme: Aquilae is a small independent country like North Vietnam threatened by a neighbor or provincial rebellion, instigated by gangsters aided by empire. Fight to get rightful planet back. Half of system has been lost to gangsters[]The Empire is like America ten years from now[]We are at a turning point: fascism or revolution".[3]
