I'm gobsmacked.

No, really, I am:

“I’ve seen the very concept of justice destroyed,” Spidey begins (as written by J. Michael Straczynski). “I’ve seen heroes and bad guys alike — dangerous guys, no mistake, but still born in this country for the most part, denied due process, and imprisoned, potentially for the rest of their lives. … But there’s a point where the ends don’t justify the means, if the means require us to give up not just our identities, but who and what we are as a country.”
I've never seen anything close to this in a comic book. Comics are extremely market driven. They don't preach unless they imagine it won't harm sales.

The zeitgeist is blowing much harder than I thought.
