Re: Jab’s Builds! (Hawkeye, Bro! Mockingbird, Bro! Bro the Bros, bro!)

It's always risky to revisit story lines which already imparted a bad odor to certain characters, and the Mockingbird/Phantom Rider arc is pretty widely agreed to fall into that category. I can see that: For every ultimate clone saga you have a dozen "hey do you remember that time Hank Pym hit...

Re: The most petty thing you'd do as a comics creator

I would restore the barely-visible silhouetted batpenis to that Black Label issue that everyone went pointlessly apeshit over. Where as I would add barely visible penis silhouettes to all the panels & have Bruce refer to his penis as his Bat-a-wang. :lol: That is literally the most dickish thin...

Re: Warren Ellis - Recent Apology / Allegations Disscussion

Neutrality is a possible position to take. Stating that Ellis is clearly innocent of wrongdoing on a moral/ethical level as saint_matthew did is taking a clear side and thus making its own accusation against all of the women in question. No, what I did was accurately point out is that Warren Ellis ...

Re: What's new with the big two: Marvel and DC Comics discussion thread.

But this is pretty clearly bad behavior; pretending to be interested in these women's writing as a pick-up technique is a jackass move. Sure, but no one has yet to prove he did that. After all Warren has mentored a lot of people over the years both men & women, the overwhelming majority of whom...

Re: What's new with the big two: Marvel and DC Comics discussion thread.

Or you know. Between one man and a series of more than thirty-five women he was repeatedly unethical and manipulative towards. The plural of allegation isn't evidence, it's allegations. Allegations are easy, especially ones made on the internet. Allow me to demonstrate, I allege you have sex with h...

Re: What's new with the big two: Marvel and DC Comics discussion thread.

Nothing criminal, as the women were all of age (though as young as 19) , but certainly loutish, disrespectful, and borderline unethical behavior. And while-perhaps-not workplace sexual harassment, it makes the guy a bit of a creep. Doesn't even make him that. This is just a failed relationship betw...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Synapse! Avenger X! Voyager! Hawkeye Builds!)

Hawkeye MADE jokes. He wasn't A joke. But for the longest time he's basically been treated as a sad sack loser who can't keep his life together All for the benefit of a boring female character. I ALWAYS hate this trope, the "we've decided this female character is important, so we'll replace th...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Kamala Khan! The Blue Marvel! America Chavez!)

And its a shame, because mainstream comics needs a more diverse line-up It really doesn't, but I can see why people mistakenly believe it to be so. The fact is that comics have been hugely diverse for decades, but when done correctly, as it used to be, no one notices. It's only when it's done poorl...

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Triathlon! Silverclaw! Noh-Varr! The Sentry!

Ugggg, Sentry. During the Bendis New Avengers era, circa Illuminati issue 3, I had this theory about The Sentry. My pet theory was that the Sentry is actually The Beyonder, that this whole Sentry thing was his latest attempt to be a hero to win the adoration of Black Bolt. But the only way to do tha...

Re: What's new with the big two: Marvel and DC Comics discussion thread.

It tends to when a monopoly gets broken. Sure, but as I understand it this isn't really breaking the monopoly, it's simply replacing one monopoly with another monopoly, at least it will be once Diamond collapses, which given that they've just lost roughly a third of their revenue from DC's departur...

And season 2 was better than season 1. Season 2 was when the writing hit it's stride, when it finally figured out who & what it was.

Re: Jab’s Builds! (Carol Danvers! Photon! Quasar! Jarvis!)

Yes, but they're all women, so therefore they're perfectly competent. In these issues of Cap, Steve pretty much tags along being clueless while the Daughters of Liberty explain things to him. Arrr yes, one of the two classic "hack writing all woman team" clichés. That's the classic "...
