How is killing commies for America bad? How is killing super-villains who have it coming bad?
wow. Let's try that again.

An anti-hero is not the same as a "bad guy."

No, I understood you the first time. So you think all hero's must act like Superman and never kill and rescue kittens out of tree's? What a boring vision.
The concepts of the hero and the antihero are literary constructs. They are not opposites. You don't seem to be grasping the concept. I refer you to Leslie Erickson's Ph.D. dissertation, entitled The search for self: Everyday heroes and an integral re-visioning of the heroic journey in postmodern literature and popular culture, University of Nebraska - Lincoln, 2004. It sheds some light on the current popularity of Wolverine and the degradation in the depiction of Superman's character over the past 20 years.
"shall not be infringed" is naturally open to infringements of all kinds, because shut up and think of the children.
