Let's Kill Hitler: And now, a rebuttal from Mister James Buchanan Barnes

If you can follow all those criss-crossy word balloons, you'll see that Hawkeye Ronin asks the musical question we've been dealing with all day: "if you had a time machine yadda yadda yadda Hitler?"

Panel from Dark Avengers: The List: The Avengers one-shot (November 2009), script by Brian Michael Bendis, pencils by Marko Djurdjevic, inks by Mark Morales, colors by Marte Gracia, letters by Joe Caramagna

So, if we've learned nothing from the past three posts, it's that the Original Human Torch and Toro blasted, their way into Hitler's bunker in April '45, and the Torch and killed Hitler (even though his brain patterns were preserved in a clone body by Arnim Zola). That's a pretty good claim for the Human Torch to being the member of the WWII group the Invaders that killed Hitler. Right? Right, Bucky Barnes formerly of the Invaders, who is now the new Captain America?

Ehhhh…I'm pretty sure you didn't, Bucky.

But I don't blame Bucky. Ya know who I blame? Bendis.
