Minutemen Respond to Boston Globe Dick Tanner Op/Ed

We would like to thank Mr. Tanner for his opinion about our activities in the Boston area, and say he is right. Our actions as a group should be for greater good of the community, especially with our abilities taken into consideration.

This is why we would like to take the opportunity to express the Minutemen’s desire to become a bigger organization. The visit from Latveria’s ruler caused more chaos than not, and even though the finances were settled, it left a raw feeling in my mouth. This desire to become a better group is expressly why we’ve struck out and made liaisons with the governmental office and police department. I sincerely hope we can work with the local medical businesses and fire departments in the very near future.

We thank the citizens of Boston, and greater Boston area, for their support, but please understand Mr. Tanner is entitled to his opinion and it only belittles what we are trying to achieve as an organization when people attack and defame him. To Mr. Tanner, whatever discomfort or displeasure we have caused you in regards to the favorite waffle joint, I apologize. We only wanted to spread the good word of this establishment.

Some not so in love with Boston's new heroes
The Boston Globe - Op/Ed - Dick Tanner

The Minutemen have taken Boston by storm. That, no one can deny. Local public opinion of them has soared over the last few weeks as the group has helped to capture criminals both mundane and “super.”

But their popularity has grown so quickly its almost suspicious. What other costumed vigilantes have experienced such a meteoric rise? Spider-Man is – to this day – often portrayed as a menace to society, and the Batman is widely distrusted even by other so-called “heroes.”

Vigilantes interrupt Doom's Boston tour

Boston is in shock after its second deadly super-criminal attack in less than a week. The Atomic Skull, long known as an enemy of Superman, descended upon downtown Boston yesterday and murdered fifteen people in the streets.
