Courtesy of Joe Michael Straczynski and Jesus Saiz, Steve Rogers is taking on the role of landlord in today’s Captain America #1.

It’s quite common in the media for landlords to be the bad guys. To the extent that landlords don’t want to be called “landlords” any more, preferring “small housing providers”. But online, the consensus seems to be “Inherently evil, no. Almost always bad, yes.” But is it just me, or is someone at Marvel Comics a landlord and trying to buck the trend? In the past, Daredevil, Spider-Man and the Fantastic Four battled with their own landlords.  But in recent years, we saw Hawkeye become the landlord of his building to save the community from local hoodlums. And now, courtesy of Joe Michael Straczynski and Jesus Saiz, Steve Rogers, Captain America is taking on the role, in today’s Captain America #1.

After the building he lives in is about to be closed down and probably destroyed, he does the superhero thing and steps up, courtesy of an advance loan from Tony Stark. Who could probably buy the entire block and hide it in a rounding-up error.

And Steve Rogers buys the building and starts to become a Good Landlord.

All the time while saving the world from extra-dimensional threats, and diving into his own past and history, rewriting Steve Rogers’ earliest days as an orphaned teenager, who gets evicted from the very building that he is living in – and has now just bought.

And showing great foresight in hindsight, while establishing the Daily Bugle in the nineteen thirties, looking more like a tabloid from the nineteen seventies…

So Steve Rogers battled as a teenage tenant and now battled as a centarian landlord…
