As America ramps up for the blockbuster sequel to the 1861 hit Civil War, the Nazi-punching debate has been thrust back to the forefront of the comics internet like a right cross to a Nazi’s jaw. And superstar creator Gail Simone has called on the pro Nazi-punching forces of Comicsdom to fill a new hashtag with images of heroes beating up Nazis.
