America is a land free from tyranny, but when a group of Neo Nazi rally together will Captain America uphold the First Amendment? Or will he let his fears of another world war get the better of him?

We’re not positive, but we suspect Lexi might be able to find a Captain America issue that agrees with her point of view as well:

So what does Lexi think of Nick’s tweets about Richard?

And what does the rest of comics Twitter have to say about all this?

Well, that looks like a consensus to us.
