    - Something about the whole "thank you for serving your country/happy to do it" exchange with Flash rubbed me the wrong way and was OOC for Flash, who was usually portrayed as being more centrist/moderate in the 80's when he was dating Sha-Shanna, rather than a blindly patriotic, right wing flag waver like he's been portrayed over the last few years.

    - But then, Flash is shown in the same issue as STILL having a child-like idol-worship of Spider-Man, so him being gullible/easily diluded by Dick Cheney and George Bush's propaganda machine isn't too surprising.

What made you think Flash is a "right wing flag waver" and "gullible"?

I don't know about the 'flag-waver' and 'gullible' part, but the right-wing reference was, I imagine, because Flash had a McCain sticker on the back of his wheelchair.
