It’s like Marvel is really trying to piss people off, lol.
calling it, whoever the new iron man is they won’t be straight. marvel’s tryna go for the trifecta.
Nothing makes me more pleased than Marvel making Marvel fanboys angry about genuinely good and interesting comic choices.
Um, this is fantastic. Why the hell are you complaining?
>genuinely good and interesting comic choices
That’s an interesting way to spell “obvious pandering”.
Throwing away iconic characters on a whim so you can please the demands of pissy ideologues who could not care less about the comics themselves and only care about pushing their own agenda where it doesn’t belong, is not “genuinely good and interesting comic choices.”
You know superhero mantels get passed around ALL THE TIME right?
There’s multiple Flashes, Green Lanterns, Robins, Ms. Marvels, Captain Marvels, Spidermans, and even Wonder Womans, right? There’s even more than one Batman. THERES ALREADY MORE THAN ONE CAPTAIN AMERICA. (Bradley AND Barnes have both used the name already.)
Starting a new run where the mantel gets passed onto someone who isn’t a white dude isn’t “throwing away iconic characters.” It’s using a staple of the comic narrative to bring in new fans, energize franchises, and diversify line ups.
Pffft, fake nerd boys, not even understanding how mantel passing works.
Oh I’m sorry you think you’re so smart you can look how mantel passing works on Wikipedia wow fucking move over people who have a genuine liking of comic books, dumbass Feminist bitches who think they have an opinion are pushing their agendas down your throat, and no matter what you say, you’re wrong.
A GENUINE liking of comic books?
You think I don’t genuinely enjoy comic books?
Being a misogynist doesn’t give you a monopoly on liking superhero comics, my friend. Does it bother you that OTHER comic fans aren’t bothered by these things?
So, I call total bs on the guy claiming Marvel is cramming something down anybody’s throats or throwing away classic characters.
You know who’s a classic character? Sam Wilson - The Falcon and new Captain America who was created in the 60’s by Stan Lee and Gene Colan. You’re familiar with Stan Lee, yes? Same guy that co-created that masculine Thor you’re so attached to.
Actually, that’s not true. THAT Thor, the one who is actually the son of Odin, was created much later. The one Stan Lee actually created was a guy who stumbled across the hammer of Thor and was able to gain Thor’s powers and form because he was worthy. A lot like that lady on the cover is going to.
But, you know, whatever. Don’t let being wrong stop you from continuing to call people names. Just realize if anybody is a fake fan here, it’s you for not having a basic understanding of comics continuity.
I’m just really frustrated that a female fan STILL has to pull out their whole collection to “prove” themselves.
But you know what? Even if they are “pandering” to try to appeal to a wider audience (which is a hilarious complaint coming from the demographic that has been pandered solely to for pretty much all of comics history), that’s a pretty rational and understandable business decision because, and I hate to say this, but the mainstream comic book industry is seriously struggling. It seems weird to say, because superheroes themselves are more popular than ever, but pretty much all the major players are having a hard time actually selling books.
But you know who the largest growing demographic of comic book BUYERS is right now?
Women! Women and girls!
And if you’re the type of loudmouthed asshole who spews your disgusting fanboyrage all over the internet but illegally downloads part or half or most of your comics, you’ve got no one to blame but yourself, anyway. Of COURSE the major publishers are going to readjust their strategy in order to sell more comics to the people who are actually BUYING them! The movie industry is learning that hard lesson, too. For the past couple of years, there has been an increasing trend of movies doing more poorly the more their audience skews male. I’m not really sure why it is that guys are less inclined to actually pay for their entertainment, but it should shock no one when the media-makers begin to “pander” to those who do.I actually have more respect for those that have an opinion and can actually show they’re interested in the topic an not just there because they want to push their own agendas down other peoples throats. If you’re a girl (or guy) that likes comics books, and doesn’t mind these changes for whatever reason, I can respect that because it’s your opinion and you’re entitled to it like I am my own. But it’s when (talking to youinvisiblemoose) people, often but not always feminists, come here and have no interest in anything related to the topics and they own want to put their own irrelevant agendas down others throats for no reason at all just because it makes them feel better/bigger or whatever, and that is the problem we’re having. It’s people like you.
