Subj: Still hating the SHRA?

As seen from this uptodate panel of Cap the SHRA still seems a poorly executed status quo from its official start date. Its hard to articulate all the still bothersome aspects of it.

It seems defeatist that superheroes that register can operate with free agent status considering the purpose of the blanket protection intent of the Act's conception.

So, it allows Falcon, Heroes For Hire, Jackpot, etc. play samaritan in good conscience while Bucky-Cap, Peter-Spidey, Clint-Ronin, etc. cannot (basically it seems) all for lack of revealing their name since no training, restrictions, or penalties have been evident.

Another confusion is Norman going after Tony because he is erasing all evidence of the names of Registered Superhumans. Why? They should still be apart of the established SHRA system and if lost just have everyone verify their original info supported.

Norman has been almost magically been able to locate intel on many character most likely courtesy his Director privleges but cant even see that Ant-man registered under an alias? The system is still flawed by their POV too. Obviously there has been lots of evidence of a messy transition from SHIELD TO HAMMER security in many stories. Makes for storylines but shows that not enough attention has been focussed on the National Security which was the whole point in the shift in atmosphere since Civil War.

Meanwhile DD continues to seemingly ignore the SHRA and it seems to continue to ignore him to keep the confusion of the plotline free of his title. Harder to appreciate his part of the shared Marvel Universe this way.

Kudos to the MK run 16-19 IIRC for at least trying to spotlight SHRA protocols and secret identities - not that it went smoothly.

Now, criminals like Hood and his S.O.C. are in the Initiative. Sure, Norman mustve pulled strings but there should be instory pardons or footnotes shown. The public cant be

Other sources of confusion include: 42, pre-HAMMER TBolts vs post-HAMMER Tbolts mission statements, origins of The Order, Pointer, Blue Marvel, Urich having such a hard time finding enough evidence of Act violations to run a story, untouchability for anyone standing on a Reservation (or Asgard), the mutants free ride, etc.

Anyways, that Cap panel got the pet peeve pumping and felt like typing/rambling. Curious if readers (still?) have problems with the SHRA as is. Thoughts?
