Di#mer,  J.  2005.  Captain  America’s  empire:

Public  intellectuals  like  Samuel  P.  Hun9ngton,  
author  of  The  Clash  of  Civiliza.ons,  have  
shaped  debate  over  the  significance  of  9/11.  
Public-­‐opinion  shapers  like  the  crea9ve  team  
of  Captain  America  play  a  similar  role,  though  
more  indirectly.  Their  forms  of  patrio9sm  are  
complementary  and  oSen  simplified  by  and  for  
the  proverbial  masses.  Neither  Hun9ngton  nor  
Captain  American  are  simply  xenophobic;  in  
fact,  the  superhero’s  current  incarna9on  is  
liberal  in  many  ways.

The  Captain  is  as  a  barometer  of  US  self-­‐
percep9ons  and  aYtudes  toward  the  “others,”  
especially  of  “the  rest”  (non-­‐West).  He  is  a  
be#er  embodiment  of  US  na9onalism  than  
Superman  since  he  is  a  na9ve-­‐born  “American”  
mo9vated  by  patrio9sm.  His  shield  symbolizes  
of  the  defensive  nature  of  his  calling.  He  seeks  
to  protect  an  “America”  that  is  the  vic9m  of  
others’  aggression  rather  than  a  vic9mizer,  as  
much  of  the  world  perceives  it.

The  term  “culture  wars”  was  coined  by  
conserva9ve  pundit  Pat  Buchanan  many,  many  
years  ago.  He  and  many  Republicans  are  
distraught  by  the  risk  of  internal  or  external  
subversion.  They  can  be  described  as  right-­‐
wing  ideologues  whose  views  go  much  further  
than  those  of  Captain  America.  He  is  a  truly  
“American”  superhero:  a  rugged  individualist  
pursuing  the  na9onal  interest  even  at  odds  
with  government  when  necessary,  sensi9ve  to  
but  unconvinced  by  the  “blame-­‐America”  
crowd.
