Exploring the military industrial complex of the Ultimate post-9/11 Avengers comic | Boing Boing:

I’ve been really enjoying the new season of Collective Action Comics, a new-ish podcast that closely examines superhero comics from a radical leftist perspective. While the first season looked at DC Comics’ Justice League International storyline from the late 80s, Season 2 explores a comic book that’s much closer to my own heart: The Ultimates, Marvel’s re-imagined version of the Avengers from the turn of the millennium. Written by Mark Millar with art by Bryan Hitch, the smash-hit Ultimates would go on to serve as a major blueprint for the Marvel Cinematic Universe version of the Avengers — all the way down to the introduction of a new version of Nick Fury specifically drawn to look like Samuel L. Jackson.

It’s a shame this podcast is Sticher hosted – I do my best to avoid things there as opposed to real podcasts. It sounds like it would be fascinating to listen through.
