Oh goody, the spammers have found your site. I hope me posting comments didn't do that. :(ReplyDelete
Another great episode, Sean and Dr G! I need to give these issues a re-read, but a couple of random thoughts.
Does Sun God look a lot like Sentry to either of you? That made me not take the Great Society completely at face value, that there may be a darker side to them to parallel the Illuminati.
I LOVED your discussion on what other analogs they should have faced. Younger versions of them would certainly have been intriguing, except Namor is so compared to the rest, a few years' difference doesn't really affect him. Except for the late 80s and his 90s series, there's not a lot of "heroic" time periods for Namor, so he's pretty static unless they deliberately amped up the analogs heroism. Still interesting.
But what you're also saying, having a group that chose "hope", means a group that did not mind-wipe Captain America and kick him out. It would be a group that kept him around for all the reasons Steve said back in the initial story arc. Oh man, that would have been BRUTAL!
Time is running out. But I'll be here! Thanks, Beyondists!
Beyondists? I like that. Sun God definitely invokes Sentry for me. I also think, weirdly, of the old pulp character Sun Koh when I look at him as well.ReplyDelete
