    Isn’t Nick Fury a sort of Batman to Captain America’s Superman?

    Chad, the reason why the Red Skull would dislike mutants (but support certain powered-up humans) is simply because mutants spring up randomly, naturally, outside of his control. This is in fact the reason why all governments would feel threatened by mutants and yet support their own sanctioned superhero teams. It makes sense that the U.S. government would totally be fine with someone like Beast or Quicksilver working for them, and yet be opposed and want to instantly micromanage or register if not destroy a random mutant with game-changing powers who might pop up anywhere at any time. I think the core issue is about control, not racism (even if someone like the Red Skull would sense and express all this through a racist ideology; Tim makes a good point about racism simply not making sense here.) I’m not saying that the Marvel writers or editorial have ever actually thought this out, but I think my explanation is good enough for a No Prize.

    As someone whose disliked the majority of what Bendis has done over the past five years, I am really enjoying All-New X-Men. I don’t get how some reviewers are blowing up relatively minor out-of-character dialogue gaffs. They are few and far between, and this is the most restrained Bendis has been in quite some time. It’s a great series so far, and I’m reminded of some of his great early Ultimate Spider-Man stuff.

    Another year gone by. I missed your last show, guys, so it’d been even longer since I’ve heard you. Tim sounds like he’s really stepped into the “grand old man of letters” person. And Chad sounds like his voice is almost ready to drop.
