The latest Captain America comic reveals the villainous Red Skull has adapted to the modern age by becoming a men’s rights activist, with the issue drawing comparisons to contemporary individuals and publications. While Marvel have frequently engaged with ongoing political topics in previous Captain America stories, Red Skull is an explicitly fascist character heavily tied to Nazi ideology, and the evolution of his methods and beliefs constitute a clear rebuke to a movement the heroic Steve Rogers has rarely confronted before, and never so directly…
In Captain America #28 by Ta-Nehisi Coates and Leonard Kirk, Red Skull has taken to the Internet to find new recruits, targeting those described as, “Young men. Weak. Looking for purpose,” by Captain America. Pictured in the comic, Red Skull is surrounded by advertisements for works titled “The Feminist Trap,” “Barbarians at the Gates,” and “10 Rules for Life.” The latter entry seems to be a reference to Jordan Peterson, a contemporary right-wing media personality and professor of psychology, and his book 12 Rules for Life, with other of the Skull’s chosen phrases echoing past comments from Peterson. Peterson has since Tweeted his recognition of the reference, and is currently advertising “Hail Lobster” merchandise bearing a design similar to that of the Red Skull’s fascist organization Hydra.
