Wally West: Cold Warrior.
Does anyone else remember when Wally was presented as a Middle American Conservative?
The following examples are all from New Teen Titans #18.
The subject in question is the soviet superhero Red Star (formerly Starfire).
“You represent your entire nation to me! Filthy commie!”
Kovar is, of course, immediately cut off, since the Titans can’t be shown to be massive hypocrites.
Wally, however, won’t shut up.
If more political debates were like that, the world would be a far more interesting place.
I love this argument. It’s like he’s saying it’s his right to be a douche-bag because he’s not being a douche to them.
(I’m not saying Wally being Conservative makes him a douche. I’m saying the way they have him acting, regardless of the ideology behind it, is douchetastic).
One last panel?
Next time Wally, I want to be the pot – you can be the kettle.
I say this because the Titans are acting under the orders of the US Goverment in this very story.
(How the heck did I not have a politics tag before this?)
