    I went back to it because I was bored. I'm largely enjoying it. But the fact that they're doing side stories with the Deep and A Train; the two weakest characters; really hurts this series. Also, the new super is annoying as hell.

    Stormfront in the comics was a Nazi-engineered Ubermensch who was brought to the states at the end of the war under the auspices of Project: Paperclip, and re-educated to not be a Nazi, unsuccessfully.

    The writers of the show are proud of their creativity in changing the character into a woman who got superpowers and was turned racist by alt-right websites.

    Well, that’s better. The writers spent months bragging about their brilliant reinvention of the character in the press, good to know it was 50% bullshit.

    I'm glad I dont read any comic press. Feels like since the Comics Journal ended Comic press went to total shit.

    In light of the fact that there are mentions of Supe Terrorists, I'm waiting for someone - probably Butcher - to refer to Stormfront as a "Supe Nazi"!
    VHS will never die!
