Clearly the superhero is a bikie. And he wears colours! He would cop a hard time under Queensland‘s toughest bikie laws in the world.
Interestingly and chillingly coincidentally Captain America says in the film: “I thought the punishment usually came after the crime.”
If we didn’t know better it could very well be a reference to Queensland’s denial of bail and reversal of the onus of proof for declared outlaw motorcycle club members under the draconian Vicious Lawless Associations Disestablishment (VLAD) Act.
Captain America remarks: “This isn’t freedom; this is fear.”
Harley marketing communication director Dino Bernacchi says Captain America “truly embodies the iconic, heroic, and American aspects of the Harley-Davidson brand”.
“Both Captain America and our motorcycles are great symbols of freedom.”
Maybe we need Captain America here to fight the forces of evil that have introduced laws that make it illegal to “be something” and have innocent riders living in fear of being mistakenly pulled over and harassed.
