RISE OF WERTHAM
As Dornail continues to detail the forgotten fiend, Dr. Walter Wertham he begins describing the impact of Dr. Wertham’s book:
CORRUPTION OF THE INNOCENT!
Now most people are normally pretty reasonable.
Except when it comes to their kids.
And Dr. Wertham’s book got the entire planet very pissed off at it’s heroes!
The accusation coming from a DOCTOR of PSYCHOLOGY that the very people saving everyone might also be responsible for negatively influencing their kids was far too appealing a dialogue for many to resist.
The book took traction by throwing out many wild accusations including that some of the heroes were into various kinky sexual acts and even subliminal suggestions of naughty things.
The whole thing spun SO FAR out of control that in extremely short order Wertham was given actual power as part of a government ethics committee and his word became law!!
