I don’t want to talk about that stuff too much. The only thing we apologized for was identifying those protesters as specifically the Tea Party Movement. In Marvel comics it’s Roxxon Oil, not Exxon. It’s a step removed from reality. It reflects the world without actually being the world, and that was what the apology was for – not that they got offended. People were reading stuff into that. No one ever said “All protesters are evil.” I had to shut down my public email because I started getting death threats from, y’know, peaceful protesters.
