YouTube Selection: Wisecrack Explains American Exceptionalism Using Superheroes

What is American Exceptionalism? The Boys and the MCU might offer an explanation. Wisecrack explains.

American Exceptionalism is, at its core, the idea that the United States is a very special place with a great destiny.

Can that we see how that might look through characters like Homelander and Captain America?  Wisecrack thinks so.
