Not everyone is happy to have superheroes, esp American superheroes fighting in their Cities.

The new Captain America divided opinion, but since Falcon was a founding Avenger many see him as Steve Rogers legitimate replacement.
 
Watched the latest Dr. Strange film recently. After learning that, as of Phase 4, Dr. Stephen Strange’s identity and magic powers are known to the general public I was inspired to make this post:

Members of the Catholic “Tradition, Family, Property” advocacy group picketing at Harvard Medical School. The university’s decision to host Dr. Stephen Strange & the “Science, Alternative Medicine & Mystic Arts” seminar drew ire from a wide variety of religious and anti-occult groups:

Pamphlets produced by the N.Y.C. chapter of the New Salem Society. The anti-occult organization, formed after existence of witchcraft & sorcery became known to the general public, believes that Wanda Maximoff, Dr. Strange & all other ‘magic-users’ are in league with malevolent demonic forces working against the common good of humanity. Public interest in the New Salem Society peaked following the “Westview Incident”:

Especially if everyone in Westveiw start taking The Avengers to court for psychological damages

Briton’s Longbowmen battling Wakandan Dora Milaje as seen in Microsoft’s hit RTS game Age of Empires II. Introduced in The African Kingdoms expansion pack, Wakandans are an infantry-focused civ with strong defences bonuses but poor siege units and a weak economy (in-game representation of their long isolationist tradition and an extreme reliance on a single rare resource). Their unique units include the Dora Milaje (seen above) and the War Rhino (a cheaper yet less cost-efficient counterpart to the Battle Elephant available to other civs) while the Panther Statue of Mt. Bashenga serves as their civilization’s Wonder.

A pro-Skrull political cartoon criticizing President Ritson’s Anti-Alien Act and other discriminatory regulations introduced in response to Gravik’s terrorist activities.

A placard seen at a 2028 U.S. presidential election rally. With the general public becoming aware of the shape-shifting Skrulls and their infiltration of human society, smear campaigns popped up questioning the “humanness” of certain political figures.

While in the past such occurrences were attributed to mental illness or illicit drug use, the Ritson Administration vowed to carefully review each such incident to properly compensate the victims and assess potential alien threats.
 
So I know the popularity of the MCU is down in the gutter these days and thus thread participation is on the decline as well…

…BUT I can’t believe that in the 4+ years that the thread was open no one posted images based on what’s implied in this scene:


The Red Skull openly rebelled against the Führer & the NSDAP. That means the last stages of WW2 would have been a three-way battle between Allies, Nazis and Hydra forces!

Anyone care to post some pictures with this premise?

President Hoag talking to a New York worker, 2020.

When President Ross refused to run for the 2020 US Presidential Election many politicians would throw their hat into the ring, but it was Anne Marie Hoag, the director of the United States Department of Damage Control who surprised everyone to win the day. Appointed to her Department by President Obama, Hoag would aggressively promote her department, taking control of collecting, analysing and storing the alien material present post the Battle for New York, clearing the damage from the Battle of the Triskelion in 2014, and cleaning up after many other superhuman battles, as well as publishing papers on the nature of superhumans, alien life etc.

Hoag was pictured rolling up her sleeves after the SNAP and helping with debris removal; Damage Control's work to clear US cities and Hoag's vocal urging to 'get back to work' helped keep her prominent in the years after the dusting. With no experience on the floor in Capital Hill many thought Hoag would not stand a chance with the voters, especially as she stood as an independent, but the public rallied to her cause, with her poll numbers well above her opponents from the traditional parties. Hoag would tour all 50 states, and even US troops aboard during a gruelling stump season, but would handily win the election.

Inaugurated on Jan 20th, 2021 Hoag would serve a full term - she would bring the devastated Puerto Rico and Guam into the Union, and pass a toughed version of Obama's healthcare plan as well as Preside over an extensive reform of agriculture to deal with the reduced population of the US and international trade. Hoag would also greatly expand the powers of the Department of Damage Control to some criticism.

During the return of all the Missing on October 17, 2023, Hoag's handling of the chaos in trying to home, feed, and deal with the millions of Returned was praised and criticised by many. Hoag managed to keep her job despite the return of President Ellis, who graciously 'respected democracy' and stepped aside, though Hoag had him job the Cabinet as a 'Special Advisor' for the duration of the crisis.

Hoag would stand again in 2024, but her opponent republican Dermont Ritson used some very dirty campaigning to deny her a second term. Hoag tried to be above his style and took a risk running on a clean campaign, with help from President Ellis and President Obama, however the Returned made for a wild factor in the election and given many had not lived through Hoag's years in office where not inclined towards her Presidency. Ritson would win, though it was a very close race akin to Bush vs Gore.

Despite some suggestion otherwise, Presdient Ritson would not give Hoag command of Damage Control back due to his political differences with Hoag, appointing his own man to the job. Hoag has never publicly commented on this and has returned to the business world.

Editing the Hoag piece, she now loses the 2024 election due to Ritson playing dirty and the Returned being a wild card factor.

From the wiki and his OTL reaction to Secret invasion I suspect Ritson is 'coded' Republican which is what I have run with.
