firstofthfallen said: Just read your interview about the next Lazarus arc on CBR. Are you depicting Hock as being kinda like North Korea with the propaganda, whereas with Carlyle its more subtle?
I suppose North Korea is a fair analogue, though that wasn’t an overt influence. George Orwell is the most readily apparent over influence, honestly, but in that, yes, you get to North Korea in perhaps one or two very short steps.
Hock is bad, bad news. One of the things that’ll become more and more apparent as the series progresses is that, for all of the vileness of the Carlyle “system,” they are one of the “best” Families to live under.
Which tells you something about how effed up our world is right there, I suspect.
So in the comics Hawkeye has 80% hearing loss.
The Black Widow is Russian.
Can you imagine when they’re on a mission and something goes wrong; the police are about to arrest them and they fall back on Plan H.
