I want to add that Spencer's central point in the story was also a lie it was the old>Blah Blah Blah don't give people absolute power blah blah blah no one can be trusted with it blah blah blah
The problem is that that point is completely undermined by Steve not being himself. This isn't either>A
A corrupt man worming his way into ultimate and unlimited power or>B
A good man being corrupted by power.
A good man gets his Identity stolen by a bad man who chases in on his reputation and literally only has his position because of someone else's accomplishments that he fools them to thinking are his own. (Equally true if they went for the Brainwashing explanation instead).
But of course because he was writing Captain America in Current Year. Spencer started inhaling his own farts and kept treating it like he was writing A and made the tone of the story that way>HOW COULD YOU LET LITERALLY HYDRA INTO ABSOLUTE POWER!!! WHAT UTTER FOOLS YOU ARE>Bro that's Captain America a great hero with a flawless reputation
Spencer wanted to judge America for choosing wrong regardless of how hard he had to saw the corners of the square to hit it into the round hole
