Example text

Commies were not supposed to be nice, and who really cares why they’re bad? What is important is that they have “cool” powers with which to menace the Hulk. N. D. and the American superhero team the Avengers). The most obvious exception to this trend is Iron Man, who is perennially facing Russian and Asian menaces, whether they are the Mandarin, a mystical riff on Genghis Khan; Ivan Vanko, the Russian foe known as the Crimson Dynamo (or Whiplash in Iron Man 2), and the Japanese Fujikawa Corporation, which humiliates Stark by buying out his family business, Stark Enterprises.

And Shannon Elizabeth, very little seemed to indicate a humorous tone, but the disconnect between the heroic art and the unheroic actions of the main cast should have been my clue. The comic, which I had read as a paean to the Bush Administration, was, in actual fact, a savage satire of it. I was not alone in missing this completely. Part of the problem was that Millar’s subversive storytelling was obscured by Marvel Comics’ probable motivations in publishing The Ultimates. Essentially, the comic book seemed like a clever marketing strategy designed to re-launch a moribund Avengers comic book franchise and begin pre-production on an Avengers film franchise.

However, thanks to the efforts of writers such as Straczynski, who tried to give the series a serious mythological foundation, and who attempted to flesh out the characters, certain episodes were actually pretty good. Some were intelligent and progressive, and one of Straczynski’s, which filled out the back-story of the Sorceress of Castle Grayskull (a previously underutilized female character), is fondly remembered as one of the best episodes of the series. But not everyone who spent the 1980s watching the adventures of He-Man agreed that writers such as Straczynski were successful in elevating a money-making endeavor like Masters of the Universe into worthwhile art.
