I’m rather torn on how to feel about Captain America here.
While he’s an incredibly inspiring figure, he also seems hopelessly naive here. But I have an unsettling belief that he’s right.
In his Fantastic Four run, Valeria said what I thought, that Reed made the wrong decision, the selfish decision, by abandoning the council. She made the detached, utilitarian calculation, but was proven wrong. Here Reed and the Illuminati seem to be making the same choice.
They will use the wrong weapon for the wrong reasons, but can I honestly say I wouldn’t do the same to save my world, and more importantly, my family?
