  1. Awesome!

    Wolverine cameo made me chuckle.

  2. So… it’s still obviously World War II, the bad guys still have German accents, but they’re pretending that Hydra existed instead of the Nazis?  That’s… odd.

    But Steve makes me happy.

  3. @throughthebrush: I was just thinking the same thing. The fact that it’s Kang looking at this makes me hope it’s some sort of alternate history, because it would be needlessly weird to have Captain America but no Nazis. What, are they afraid of offending their Nazi audience?

  4. Scott Menville as Bucky or am I going crazy?

  5. There must be strict rules about Nazis in cartoons. I remember that animated Justice League episode set during WW2 where they carefully avoided referring to Nazis (although they still snuck in a Hitler cameo).

  6. I have no problem they excluded the nazis. Its a children’s cartoon, but they make this work.

  7. For some reason, this generation can’t know the Nazi’s were the bad guys in their cartoons.

    Which…..doesn’t make sense. 

  8. I have two theories as too why they might have left the Nazi’s out

    1) So the show can be broadcast in every foreign market, even ones like Germany, that outlaw the display of swasticas and the like


    2) Disney believes the Nazis are too "scary" for kids


    I really hope its something like the former rather than the latter, because no matter how "scary" parents might think Nazis are, they are a part of history, recent history.  To omit them from history would be much "scarier" to me.  

  9. Was that Ash with the bubble gum?

  10. Just say NAZI!

  11. Looks like hydra soldiers suffer from stormtrooper syndrome. A thousand bullets and not one landed. Also, why punch in a war? They are freaking Nazis!

  12. Finally some Cap love! Lol at Bucky brutally crushing a hydra goon with a drawbridge. That thing must be a couple of tonnes!

  13. Wow, I’m surpised to see Steven Blum voice a villain again. First Vertigo in Superman/Batman Apocalypse, now the Red Skull.

    Also, it amuses me to see Scott Menville voice another sidekick. He was Robin in the Teen Titans show.

  14. It’s just silly to make them walk talk and act like nazis but call them Hydra.

    Can anyone say H.E.R.B.I.E. 

    Look if kids in the 40’s could handle it today’s kids will be alright.

    And maybe we should just be hnoest with them let them ask some important questions instead of disassociating 

    the tough issues through a layer of cartoon.

    Worried about the psychological impact?  What’s it going to be like when they do learn about real nazis and they have this fuzzy cartoon easily defeated patsies of hydra-nazi dopplegangers formed in their heads first?

  15. I think that @AlanRob is right, in that they can’t actually display swastikas without losing an entire nation’s worth of viewers. With that in mind, I’ve got no problem with it. This was boss.

  16. When they did the WWII story in Justic League, they weren’t allowed to show any swastikas.
