HYDRA Controversy

A post by scifigrl47 critiquing the worldbuilding in Captain America: The Winter Soldier was criticized for proposing that it was more likely that Sam Wilson (a black man) could be a member of HYDRA than Tony Stark, a white man. Scifigrl47 has since deleted the meta post, although versions exist in reblogs on tumblr.[2]
