Fox News Said Some Incredibly Stupid Bullsh*t About Comics Again [Video]

Fox01

The great thing about Fox News is that it's only Tuesday and you're already about to see the dumbest thing you'll see all week.

In this case, it's a clip from Fox's weekend morning show, where three people with the collective brains of a sack of doorknobs turn their reasoned and well-thought out opinions to the world of comic books. Specifically taking on Jason Aaron and Russell Dauterman's upcoming run on Thor, where the iconic Marvel hero will get a new identity as a woman, and complaining about Wonder Woman's costume in the upcoming Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice film by comparing it to Jim Lee's redesign from four years ago that, according to them, appears to be a product of what they characterize as fundamentalist Sharia Law.

No, really, this dope on the left actually says that.

Screen-Shot-2014-07-04-at-10.55.11-AM

Independence Day. That time when Americans come together to celebrate our liberation from Great Britain, barbecue, and contemplate the depths of our disgrace.

Ask Chris #202: Scrooge McDuck Is America

Q: Aside from Superman and Captain America what hero is the most fitting representation of The United States? -- @white_dolomite

A: You know, just before I sat down to write this, I was reading some Judge Dredd comics and thinking about how fascinating the idea of Dredd as this distinctly, explicitly American icon, covered in eagles and flags and badges and guns and riding on a motorcycle that is also covered in eagles, flags, badges and guns is when you consider that he's a view of America created by people who aren't Americans. There's a lot that goes along with that, and it's fun to think about when you're reading through those stories and figuring out what defines them.

But when you get down to it, that doesn't mean that he's the best representation of the good ol' USA. Assuming you mean "hero" as in "protagonist" and not just as in "masked crimefighter," then the answer's easy. The quintessentially American comic book character is Scrooge McDuck.
