Sgt. Fury and His Howling Commandos #7 (Jack Kirby art) 1964
Nick Fury and his Howling Commandos was one of my favorite comics when I was a kid. In the early 1960's we had a bunch of TV shows and movies and comics based on World War 2. Like Combat and Twelve O'Clock High and the Rat Patrol. Our fathers and uncles had served and they would often watch these shows and just shake their heads. Of course it was Vietnam time so the more patriotic companies emphasized World War 2 which everyone thought was a just war.
So imagine my chagrin when Marvel changed Nick Fury to a black guy in the movies and cast that horrible racist Samuel L Jackson. Marvel is great for that They are extremely liberal and politically correct. First they did this stuff in their comics and now it is going to appear in the movies. The next Thor will be a woman. Yes that's right the God of Thunder Thor Odinson will be played by Natalie Portman who was famous for playing a ballerina. The new TV show about the Hulk will feature the She Hulk. Soon enough they will showcase Ms Marvell Kamala Khan who is a Muslim superhero. Political Correctness is all in the comics and the movies these days.
The Howling Commandos was ripped off by Robert Aldrich when he made "The Dirty Dozen." He used criminals instead of the multi racial and multi national composition of the Howling Commandos but it was the same basic premise. The Howling Commandos were ahead of their time and were as liberal as the times allowed. They had the black guy Gabriel Jones. The Jewish guy Izzy Cohen. The Rebel in Rebel Ralston. The half a fag Pinky Pinkerton who was English. The Italian grease-ball from New York Dino Mamelli who was based on Dean Martin. Just a motley crew of misfits fighting Hitler and the Nazi's. Of course now the people who make Marvel movies think us deplorables are Nazi's so I don't understand why we keep giving Disney our money. I don't because II only watch pirated video on the Firestick. I wonder if everyone else will start to feel the same way.
Now I hear they are going to make a sequel to "Hogan's Hero's." It won't be a direct sequel but will use the descendants of the originals on some bogus mission. Imagine how bad that is going to be? Why not just do a remake. That's what they usually do. Or somehow work in what a pervert that Bob Crane was into the script. Then you might have something.
I remember how controversial Hogan's Hero's was when it first came out. My Jew friends were not allowed to watch it since their parents said it glorified the Nazis. I just think the new movie will be an epic disaster.
But not as big a disater as the new movie that stars a kid in Hitler Youth who falls in love with Anne Frank and has Hitler as his imaginary friend. Now that is going to be a disaster.
Still and all why do they have to destroy my childhood. The bastards.
