Adam: Legend of the Blue Marvel #2
Dum Dum Dugan – Jackie Robinson… Cassius Clay… the world wasn’t ready for him. It was a different time. A different world.
Tony Stark – That doesn’t excuse it.
Dum Dum Dugan – Never said it did. But this wasn’t baseball or boxing. It was politics. Different animal, different rules. You of all people should know that. A black man with the power he had during that time in history made people feel… uncomfortable.
Kruetz – You hypocritical liberals are all alike. You want the world to read like a mother’s day card. But you don’t want to do what’s necessary to keep it safe. A safe world costs something. Someone, somewhere has to pay the piper when the bill comes due.
Tony Stark – Machiavellianism is often used as a euphemism for corruption.
Kruetz – You would know.
