AVENGERS SPOTLIGHT #31-34 (1990): US Agent

I struggle understanding the vision for USAgent.  Sometimes, he’s a racist dick who spies on “real” heroes and acts like a muscle-headed douche.  Other times, like here, he hunts a rogue cop called “Xenophobic Man” who is killing illegal immigrants in Southern Cali.  

He wrestles with this, albeit somewhat feebly, in this story.  I can’t fault Fabian Nicieza here—USAgent has been a vague, almost schizophrenic character from the beginning.
