I find it fascinating that Wertham's focus at the end of the letter is not that comics are turning kids into criminals but that they are brain-washing them into becoming heartless storm troopers!

Wertham - he had issues.

Since Wertham was German-born Jew who only moved to the U.S. in the 1920s, I suspect that he was pretty concerned about stormtroopers (a reference to Nazi's not Star Wars) and wars of aggression. I can't quite read the corrections he made, but is that a reference at the end to kids becoming "concentration camp guards"?
