Flag-Smasher is Marvel’s deadliest villain from Thanos

Was Thanos right? It was a joke, then a meme, then a shorthand for those looking to play a devil advocate with villains. And now, thanks to The Flag-Smashers of The Hawk and the Winter Soldier, the meme is real – and dangerous.

Destroyers for Hawk and the winter soldier Episode 1 is ahead.

In the first program, Sam Wilson learns about a new category of people who believe that things were better at the time of the Blip, and that true peace can only be found by tearing apart boundaries. This belief is not new, and not the name of the group: the Flag-Smashers.

Flag-Smasher is the most famous classic comic villain for going against Captain America in Marvel Comics starting in 1985. In a way, Flag-Smasher is the Man-Bat to Batman Captain America.

But is that the real head of Flag-Smasher?

In the comics, the first Flag-Smasher was named Karl Morgenthau. He was the son of a Swiss diplomat who died in a riot at an embassy, ​​which led Karl to believe that a whole concept of different countries was necessary, even if that meant creating a bit of anarchy on him. the way.

There is a speculation that the young girl from the Superbowl trailer may not be in the same mask we see Joaquin wearing except for a sex-modified Smasher Flag named Karli, probably the daughter of a deceased diplomat at Bucky’s hands in order to get money invested in the fight.

In a way, a sex-changing Flag-Smasher makes a lot of sense. After all, this is a villain who was first created to become the antithesis of Captain America. And what is the difference between a loving old white man? Anarchist multi-faceted young girl. Whether she’s just a member of the Flag-Smashers or the brains of all, her presence certainly makes a big difference in showing the empty space left by Captain America in the lives of his friends and country.
