I believe it's either the last or second to last issue of the first Ultimates series.

I'm still trying to make sense of Captain America's body in the 3rd panel
User avatar #291 to #270 - weinerdick (08/30/2013) [-]
He's squatting and turning his torso to grab the shield

I am no frenchie. But the french army's attemp to fight the germans to buy the english army time to evacuate them from france has been compared with the spartans defence of Thermopylae. Not by me, but by some english general. I think that is badass.

Muh freedoms r safe with him
User avatar #150 - iamnuff (08/29/2013) [-]
yeah, this was retracted actually,

the guy who wrote that line was fired, and the guy who replaced him had cap say something like "the french resistance were very brave"

to be fair, its not just spineless back-pedalling, Cap would probably remember the french fighting for their freedom during the occupation.

the only thing about that is that most of the French Resistance gave up. They also basically rolled over in the first place during the Nazi occupation, but some pockets did fight for a good while before also giving up.
User avatar #271 to #151 - iamnuff (08/30/2013) [-]

the French GOVERNMENT gave up, the resistance resisted.

hence the name

their government leaders rolled over and let the Germans take over the country, and the brave French men and woman of La RĂ©sistance sabotaged supply lines, perpetrated guerilla warfare, published underground newspapers, aided allies airmen trapped behind enemy lines, spied on the Nazis, and generally did everything within their power to ruin **** for the German occupiers.

if you didn't read what I said, the resistance did resist for awhile, but they gave up eventually. This is true. Ask any American veteran that fought in the European theater. One of which just so happens to be my grandfather.

"ask any american vet"

or you could ask a British vet who actually fought alongside the Resistance, like MY grandfather.

yes, they weren't as active later on as they were at the start, that's because the Germans ******* killed most of them.


fighting for your country's freedom until your oppressors kill most of the resistance is hardly cowardice.

Americans just love to mock France for surrendering in WW2, which is pretty hypocritical, considering America didn't even deign to join the fight (ignoring several treaties requiring them to do just that, due in part to the massive losses taken in WWI) until Japan bombed the **** out of PH, and even then, only joined battle against Japan, not against Germany.

something i have noticed actually, a lot of american movies paint america as "the guy who saved everyone in WW2" but i recently found out that much of your school learned history tells you similar (though less blatantly propagandist) stories.

I listened to my granddads stories, and did a bunch of research, using american sources, British sources, and a couple of French/Japanese/German ones too. (it was a part of my collage course, I'm not just a huge history nerd who does this for fun)

the stories told are surprisingly different. one thing universal to every version except america's though, is that america categorically refused to join until the end, and then only (offically) declared war against Japan, it was actually Germany who Declared war on america in response to america attacking Japan.

eleven american airmen (upon learning that they would not be allowed to support the Allies) did desert from their own country, disguise themselves as Brits or Canadians and take part in the battle of Britain.

though I consider this more an action of individuals, than of america as a whole, after-all, they had to pretend to be British just to avoid being punished by their own country.

wow, that went on a tangent.

4am, sorry. rambling.

My Grandfather was an englishman who was trained by the American Army Air Corps, that's the only reason I called him an American Vet. The people who actually fought in the war don't tell it like that, they tell it how they saw it. Of course, like I said, pockets of resistance continued, but the French did give up. Yes, we give them **** for that, because they were the biggest advocates of us standing up for ourselves against the English during the Revolutionary War.
User avatar #307 to #283 - iamnuff (08/30/2013) [-]
eh, "pockets of resistance" is the entire point of guerilla warfare.

you can't have entire chunks of the country openly defying the Germans, that's how you convince them to roll a bunch of tanks over you.

it's easy to rant about freedom from the safety of your own home, but when Germans are rolling a tanks through your streets, you have to be subtle or they kill your whole family.

yes, the French government gave up, and with them, most of the country, i already said that. politicians are going to be backstabbing weasels, what can you do?

the point is that Cap fought alongside the French resistance, and was quoted saying that he considered them extremely brave for fighting for freedom and so on.

I was just posting a bit of trivia, about how the panel in the OP was retracted so hard that nobody in DC is even willing to admit it was ever actually printed.

Man The Ultimate universe made everyone an asshole. Except Spidey, he was always a good kid. Until he died at least.
#229 to #49 - needmesomebacon (08/29/2013) [-]
I ******* hate the Ultimate universe, they made one of my favourite characters (Hank Pym) kill Janet. It was bad enough them making him a woman beater, then they make him go do that.

America ****** up the southern Vietnamese people as much as they ****** up the northern Vietnamese people. So they basically won and defeated themselves at the exact same time in a way...

They gave up more than surrendered
User avatar #137 to #92 - heartlessrobot (08/29/2013) [-]
If by surrender, you mean " **** it, we're tired of you assholes, we're tired of your asshole jungles, you just sort your own **** out, we've had enough of this **** " then yeah, totally.
User avatar #100 to #92 - coolcalx (08/29/2013) [-]
well, we attacked them, so instead of surrendering, we just stopped attacking because they were kicking our ass.
