Canadian psychologist Jordan Peterson seemed concerned that journalist and author Ta-Nehisi Coates modeled the Marvel villain Red Skull after him in the latest issue of Captain America.

The uncanny resemblance was brought to Peterson’s attention Monday morning by a fan who commented on the controversial psychologist’s tweet, claiming that The Atlantic magazine “ helped ” develop an “ insanely bullying and self-righteous culture. ”

The fan’s tweet featured a panel from Captain America (2018) # 28, published March 31, 2021, which featured the Red Skull sermons titled Ten Rules for Life, Chaos and Order, Karl Lueger’s Genius, and The Feminist Trap.

Peterson’s most popular book and its sequel both have titles that are strikingly similar to titles from Red Skull’s sermons.

The psychologist is known for his ‘growing up’ approach to adulthood, along with his conservative views. His 2018 book, 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos, is an international bestseller and has sold more than 5 million copies worldwide.

Peterson’s latest book, Beyond Order: 12 More Rules for Life, is published by Random House Canada to the dismay of some of the staff there.

“Who cares,” Peterson said upon seeing the tweet, which he shared with his 1.8 million followers Monday night.

Peterson followed up the tweet with another that featured more panels of the page, in which Captain America spoke to a detective about domestic terrorism as a result of Red Skull’s followers deploying a bomb.

Captain American explains that most of Red Skulls followers are people who dive deep into the internet and are brainwashed by his “theory about the world.”

‘It’s the same for everyone. Young men. Weak. Looking for a goal. I found the flag, you found the badge. They found the skull, ”he explains.

He tells them what they’ve always wanted to hear. That they are secretly great. That the whole world is against them. That if they are really men, they will fight back. ‘

Peterson received confirmation from his fans that the panels were from the same issue before calling the panels a “ parody. ”

Peterson asked, “Am I really living in a universe where Ta-Nehisi Coates wrote a Captain America comic that parody my ideas as part of the philosophy of the nemesis Red Skull?”

The Red Skull is a longtime Captain America villain known for his ties to Adolf Hitler and Nazi Germany. His mind was trapped along with former Soviet General Aleksander Lukin after the renegade general had the Marvel villain murdered by the Winter Soldier during the superhero civil war.

One Twitter user noted that even Lukin had striking similarities to Peterson – although it’s unclear if the psychologist saw the referral.

Junior employees of the publishing house Penguin Random House Canada tried to block the publication of Peterson’s Beyond Order: 12 More Rules for Life, calling him an “ icon of white supremacy and hate speech ” for his series of controversial comments.

In an interview in 2017, he said: ‘The idea of ​​white privilege is absolutely reprehensible and it is not because whites are not privileged. Most people have all kinds of privileges.

During a 2018 exchange on the British television network Channel 4, he told interviewer Cathy Newman that young men were screaming to be told to grow up and become more ‘competent’ and that women wanted that ‘very’.

Marvel comics have a long history of commenting and supporting moves pushed through their panels and superheroes by marginalized groups.

In particular, Stan Lee said that X-Men’s Professor Xavier and Charles Magneto were inspired by the greats of the Civil Right Movement Martin Luther King and Malcolm X. The X-Men were introduced in 1963 at the height of the Civil Rights Movement and Lee would co-create Black Panther just a few years later, in 1966, History.com reported.

Let’s just put it on the line. Intolerance and racism are among the deadliest social ills afflicting the world today, “Lee wrote in December 1968.”[I]It is utterly irrational, blatantly insane, to condemn an ​​entire race – to despise an entire nation – to slander an entire religion.

‘Sooner or later we have to learn to judge each other on our own merits. Sooner or later, if a man is ever to be worthy of his destiny, we have to fill our hearts with forbearance. ‘
