Zack: Captain Britain is pretty well known, I just wanted to single out how terrible he is.
Steve: I always sort of liked him and the bad guys the New Mutants were fighting.
Zack: Alright, the Hellfire Club stuff was fine, but the New Mutants were not cool and Captain Britain is ridiculous. He's the British Captain America, but he was created by Merlin and instead of being totally badass in a fight he could fly. FLY.
Steve: Honestly I never really liked Captain America.
Zack: No you did not.
Steve: His power was a shield. Woooooowowowowowowoww. A shield. The only people who even use shields in this day and age are riot cops and LARPers.
Zack: Uh, wrong, idiot fucker. Captain America is a member of the Greatest Generation and he was given the super-soldier serum to fight Nazis. The shield was pretty much indestructible and was given to him by FDR. A real American saint dude. Not Merlin and some other BS.Steve: FDR was a socialist.
Zack: Where did you read that?
Steve: FDR is a socialist dot blog.
Zack: Are they the ones feeding you these lies about the Super Patriot Captain America?
Steve: They said he was born in Moscow.
Sometimes I dream that I'm sitting in the back of the defunct Weinermobile as it careens driverless down the highway. At first I thought this was symbolic of the powerlessness I feel in life, but then I realized it's actually the Weinermobile's dream of being able to drive again.
Three years ago, when we were burying my uncle, Cleaver and some gross lady dog (Solstice???) showed up at the cemetery and starting going at it really loudly. It ruined everything and we had to have a "re-do" the next day and it cost a fortune. I've hated him ever since for that.
