We might not see ourselves as heroes, or fighters, or rebels. But I believe we are more then that. We are worth more then any rank or title this world may lay upon us. We all have the power to love and have humility. Once we realize that, I know we will find something beautiful. We will find something greater then ourselves.

Jacob Kurtzberg (aka Jack Kirby), a Jewish veteran of WW2, would be 100 years old on August 28, 2017. This month we will see a lot from Marvel and DC Comics celebrating his Centennial because he created or co-created many of their great heroes, including (but not limited to):

Captain America, Thor, Iron Man, the original X-Men and Magneto, the Fantastic Four & Doctor Doom, Hulk, Black Panther, Ant-Man and Wasp, Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver, Silver Surfer, Big Barda and Mister Miracle, Nick Fury and the Howling Commandos, Wonder Woman’s mother Hippolyta, Darkseid, the New Gods, Groot, the Kree, the Skrulls, the Inhumans, and Loki.

if you are a fan of any of these characters, it’s your duty to honor his legacy by opposing nazis and nazism in all forms.
