Friends…  The feeling after watching CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR on a great big 3D screen with a few hundred folks is 100% elation.  I’ve been going to superhero movies with my dad forever.   We’ve seen varying degrees of success.  When I read a comic book, especially a Marvel Comic, they do this thing of being casually super.  You know those moments.  Everyone loves a good party scene with your favorite heroes, but now it’s time to scrap.  And superheroes scrapping like a bunch kids playing in the backyard of Marvel Studios is just simply the best thing ever.
 
Everybody in this movie is giving a capitol effort to do what they feel is right.  And I mean EVERYONE!   Let’s take a look at Frank Grillo’s CROSSBONES.  Captain America dropped a building on his head and made him the Phantom of the Opera, so he’s gone and had built a Beat the Fuck Out Of Captain America Suit.   Now, this ass-whupping outfit is a bit of a compressed Alien Loadlifter, only if it had mechanical steel knuckles that could punch through rock and steel and Captain Americas.     Frank Grillo is twisted fucking evil gone revenge crazed.   He does it… Magnificently well.  But ya get where he’s coming from.   It’s simple.  Now Captain America was literally built to take a licking and keep on ticking.  He’s the Timex of Superheroes, kicking evil’s ass starting with Hitler!  He’s also from Brooklyn.  And was kicking the ass of evil before most of us were born,

When I was growing up, in a dark age of an era where porn was not literally at your fingertips as long as you had a data signal, there was a line of “Midnight Sons” titles that at least made the more “bump in the night” books like
