Karen: It looks very cool, but like Doug said, where's the swastika? I'm really annoyed the way the film-makers are pussy-footing around the whole Nazi thing. From some of the rumors I've heard, they're worried about toy sales. Toy sales? For cryin' out loud, it's WWII!! That's like making "Jaws" without a shark!

Red Skull Movie Costume - Thoughts?
Doug: I saw the image below at Comics Continuum Friday morning. Regardless of what you think about the Captain America movie costume, there's really no denying the greatness of this mask - wow! But as Karen has complained often, and I feel the same way, you're going to tell me that a swastika wouldn't have worked better than the Hydra symbol? I mean c'mon -- he looks like some stylized SS officer anyway!
