Fox & Friends Slams the New Captain America for His Politics

Captain America, battling conservatives everywhere

Shelli Weinstein

Marvel Comics recently gave Sam Wilson, formerly known as the Falcon, a promotion to Captain America, but Fox & Friends is not a fan of his new mission.

Wilson made his first appearance as Captain America in Captain America: Sam Wilson #1, battling the Sons of the Serpent, a hate group against individuals who are not white Christians, and Fox & Friends dedicated an entire segment to the issue.

Co-host Clayton Morris said that Marvel is pulling "a little bit of a PR stunt" with the issue, which features the new Cap (who happens to be black) battling the extremist conservative group as they stop illegal immigrants from crossing the border into the United States. According to Morris, the Sons of the Serpent are an "odd" pick for an enemy because they're not like Captain America's usual foes like Hydra.

Though it should be noted that Captain America has been battling the Sons of the Serpent since their first appearance in Avengers #33 in 1966.

Tucker Carlson then chimes in that Cap isn't fighting ISIS, but rather "an American who has misgivings about unlimited illegal immigration," while Morris says he misses when "back in the day Captain America used to be punching Hitler in the face."

The last time Captain America fought Hitler was in...1945.
