Perhaps pre-Ito memory “restoration” Brainwave was sincere though Brainwave’s anger towards repulsive thoughts never mentioned greed. Henry Jr. did though. The Gambler is Jordan’s right-hand man at New America so despite his criminal past he’s probably a believer in the ideological cause.
Nothing says this was their plan or area of focuse the first time. Pat seemed very surprised to see the platform was essentially Biden/T.B.D. 2020 and not opposed to said platform.

Yolanda has been boxing for God only knows how long including her long sessions at school (seriously, have we even seen her in a class?) and also… Read more
He was very anti-Soviet, but I don’t get that he was the kind of Republican neoconservative from based on this Wikipedia article or other things I have read. It would be like calling George Orwell a neoconservative. Rustin just hated how Communists treated black people and other minorities. I’m sure of course, the… Read more
