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.
