Re: The Independent: "Let’s topple every pale, male and stale superhero we can"

A film industry propped up for the last decade by adaptations of comic books. Traditionally, when you license an IP, you're aiming to bring over fans of that IP as a core part of your target audience.

Re: When did "Ugly Female Protagonists" become such a thing?

If I have to choose between watching an episode of Go and a kick to the face... I'm thinking it over.

Re: G.I. Joe / Snake-Eyes film in 2020

Well...it's how I'd do it anyway.... And in so doing, you'd be disrespecting the character's history and his creator. A creator of the same ethnicity you're trying to elevate. A creator who made a deliberately anti-racist choice in creating the character. A choice you would be undoing. In the conte...

Re: Marvel bows to poltical correctness and censors celebrated writer.

You're the one ignoring reality to call my president a Nazi, Well if the jackboot fits... I have demonstrated that the specific policies you chose to discuss did not originate with Trump, or even Trump's political party. If Trump is a Nazi for the reasons you chose to discuss, the United States has...

Re: Marvel bows to poltical correctness and censors celebrated writer.

Literally referring to me as an NPC? What, was cuck too old fashioned? Not calling you one. I was describing the news sources you consume. And I wouldn't call you a cuck in this matter. You're not American. It's not yourself you're trying to screw over. I'm discriminating in my choice of insult. Th...

Re: Marvel bows to poltical correctness and censors celebrated writer.

Let me make one thing very clear; I do not give a fuck about the Democrats. No. Really. I don't. I'm not saying that you like them. I'm simply observing that you are "carrying their water." As in, you are doing their chores for them. Repeating their ridiculous talking points. They're lame ducks who...

Re: Marvel bows to poltical correctness and censors celebrated writer.

Okay, I don't have the time or energy to unpack all of that, but I suppose we could just throw away the whole suitcase... The fourteen signs of fascism were largely gathered by Umberto Eco, a man who lived and was raised in Fascist Italy and the information was composed by observing fascist dictato...

Re: Marvel bows to poltical correctness and censors celebrated writer.

So Marvel's own customer base is Donald Trump? An attack on Trump as a political figure is an attack on Trump supporters. You know this. You're being disingenuous. As for whether or not Donald Trump is a Nazi or a fascist I'm not going to debate that because he actually pretty clearly is. The man i...

Re: The Boys

Yeah, Butcher is a nasty guy, willing to make tactical sacrifices, ascribes guilt to all supes, and laser-focused on the final goal... but man, I view him a lot more sympathetically than the rest of you seem to. He's out for legitimate revenge. He believes he's lost everything because of a particula...

Re: The Boys

Starlight had to perform oral sex on all the males in tbe seven. Just The Deep. That grudge remained personal. I can see it being confusing, as Translucent was lurking naked in the bathroom afterward, as Translucent does, but that scene faded to black with only the two of them present. When she wen...

Re: The Boys

Jeez, Ignited . It deserves its own award for extreme tone-deafness. If that piece of crap gets turned into a Netflix series, something will have gone incredibly wrong. I hate that comics are made aiming for the license. A license should be something offered to the greatest creators for the most or...

Re: The Boys

To be clear, I absolutely do not condemn or begrudge anyone for enjoying this series or anything like it. "Power corrupts" and "Who watches the watchmen" are story elements that date back to our earliest mythology. It works fine for a storyline like the Dark Phoenix Saga. I just have no interest in...

Re: The Boys

In classic comic book settings, the people who happen to get powers are, relatively often, people who can be strong and courageous and selfless enough to be heroes. I like that. It's a noble, aspirational, optimistic view of humanity. In The Boys, heroes are victims of a manipulative institution see...
