While politics may be avoided to a certain extent in comic books, they are still very much a part of the story. For example, in this book the message is one of unity, with both super heroes and villains coming together to help sort through the rubble. Unity is a political concept, and is used in treaties and other political agreements . Further, while reflecting on the scene in front of him, Spider-Man explicitly acknowledges that there will be a war as a result of the attack. Wars are inherently political conflicts.
