From IJReview: Who knew Captain America hated capitalism and free-trade markets so much?!

According to The MacIver Institute, a Wisconsin-based think tank, the newest Marvel comic book series has the Star-Spangled Avenger going after the laissez-faire economic principals that helped create the very nation he’s charged with protecting.

MacIver News Services’ Bill Osmulski explains:

“The new villains in this comic are conservatives who are portrayed as a right-wing terrorist group called ‘The Sons of the Serpent.’ They stopped a group of immigrants trying to cross the border who they accuse of invading a sovereign land to spread disease and crime, take American jobs and collect welfare.”

Osmulski continued:

“Then Captain America comes and beats them up. Those in the country who disagree with Captain America’s new partisan agenda accuse him of being anti-American, against the Constitution, they even call him ‘Captain Socialism.’ He says all he wanted to do was bring folks together.”

This is not the first time Marvel Comics has pushed the envelope when it comes to controversial political issues, nor will it likely be the last.

While Captain America’s latest actions are likely a jab at 2016 Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s promise to boot all illegal Mexicans out of the U.S., Marvel has referenced everything from the Ku Klux Klan to the Patriot Act and the Tea Party in past comic book issues.

The Daily Caller even appears to have confirmed that theory, finding a tweet by the comic’s writer in which he shows his disdain for the billionaire businessman:

Apparently hate speech is just fine so long as it brings in the ratings. Let’s all be entertained by Trump!Capture13, 2015
