"Frank Miller’s ‘Holy Terror’ Looks About Like You’d Expect"

We’ve got a trailer for Frank Miller’s al Qaeda-killing superhero story Holy Terror, which looks entirely predictable:

As I wrote back in June, I just don’t see the world the way Miller does. I don’t believe America’s streets are “filled with fear.” If Americans’ hopes are shattered, I think it’s by an ongoing recession rather than by a terrorist threat so pervasive that it’s got us cowering in the basements of foreclosed homes. And we have big national problems, but the idea that America has descended into the pit both isn’t accurate and is a really convenient way to dodge actually trying to find systematic solutions to the things that make Americans miserable day-to-day, like say, skyrocketing health care costs.
