Is diversit killing comios? As Aj fanboys but ho Sorry MARVEL VP ADMITS POLITICAL CORRECTNESS KILLED COMIC SALES April 3 2017 Daniel Greenfield 50 526 While the Marvel-Disney monster has been ruling the box office Marvel Comics sales have been having serious issues One obvious factor was trying to force political correctness on readers by replacing Peter Parker Iron Man etc with ridiculously politically correct diverse versions In a revelation that would surprise no one comic book readers were not interested in a Muslim Ms Marvel a Latino Spider-Man who isn't Peter Parker or the Angela Davis version of Iron Man And Marvel's VP of Sales made the mistake of admitting that <p><a href=httpprincess-has-a-pentumblrcompost166223687686trilllizard420-the1manpizzaparty class=tumblr_blog>princess-has-a-pen<a><p>

href=httpunicornlordarttumblrcompost164374320304well-somebodys-fucking-lying class=tumblr_blog>unicornlordart<a><p> <blockquote><p>Well… Somebody’s fucking lying<p><blockquote> <p>diversity in and of itself doesn’t kill comics but pointless endless reboots massive events that rely on you keeping up with 12 given titles at any time and constant badly established legacy characters are why comics are failing<p> <p>not to mention splitting up iconic superhero titles among more than one person at once<p> <p>did you know there’s actually 3 people running around with the Wolverine codename at the moment?<p> <p>Let’s take some examples<p> <p>Riri Williams popped up with no buildup after Tony Stark got murked but he was apparently monitoring this 15 year old girl teen prodigy never mentioned before in his comics entrusted with an AI based on his brain patterns and personality to mentor her<p> <p>You know as compared to however fucking many characters they could’ve given his legacy to<p> <p>Also we’re supposed to believe someone as egotistical and self glorifying as Dr Doom would take on the identity of Iron Man?<p> <p>Please<p> <p>It’s the same shit as Jane Foster as female Thor with a healthy combination of plothole<p> <p>Somehow a human woman who has not been involved with Thor in way with a terminal disease that was ravaging her body somehow ended up ON THE MOON without any protection and managed to pick up Mjolnr and was found Worthy by it after the fight where Thor ceased to be Worthy<p> <p>Like you know instead of Sif a long time companion of Thor and who can pick up the hammer or Angela who Marvel had then won a recent legal fight to be able to use…<p> <p>People don’t dislike it because it’s “diversity”<p> <p>They don’t like it because it’s weak pandering writing that doesn’t stand up to internal logic<p> <p>Now an example of this done right is when Sam Wilson aka the Falcon became Captain America<p> <p>for one thing he was actually established as working closely with Steve Rogers for a long time in the comics before he was given the mantle By Steve Rogers himself<p> <p>See at this point Rogers got rapidly aged cause his super serum stopped working and he was an old man so he couldn’t do it any more but he was still around to give Sam advice and support over comms<p> <p>But of course until Marvel actually bothers to learn why people aren’t buying their shit they’re gonna keep making the same mistakes as long as they’re insulated by the losses of the MCU and being used by Disney as a vanity press they’ll never learn and lose more ground to DC and the indies<p> <p>EDIT Also I totally forgot unrecognizable new brands they try to create<p> <p>If your comic customers as in the customers that go in and buy things if they go “who’s this” and show you a comic then they’re probably not gonna pick it up They’re there to buy Spider-Man Batman Wolverine X-Men Avengers they can recognize not fuckin Stardude or whatever odd new thing they’re gonna push is<p> <p>It’s nothing to do with race of sex of the characters concerned but if they’ve got no brand recognition to support their solo titles they’re gonna flounder<p> <p>Not even getting into the alienating pointlessly political shite like that infamous Mockingbird “Ask Me About My Feminist Agenda” t-shirt schlock stunt<p> <p>What’s also more damaging than that is a flippant response to criticism or calling their readership racist assholes on twitter or whatever That’s a really bad look for an industry professional when you’re not even an artist or a writer as someone essential to a comic book<p> <blockquote> <p>this person forgot to mention how they shoehorn in unnecessary commentary and subplots no one was looking for it honestly feels like that sometimes spider man stops mid fight and says “did i mention im a gay POC” hyperbole but kind of true<p> <blockquote> <p>this sadly is Not Hyperbole with America Chavez<p> <blockquote> <p>And the worst thing is?<p> <p>With tweaking and good writing Riri and America what a stupid name could work<p> <p>But because Marvel is run by incompetent pandering idiots they’re the worst ideas to ever come out of the company<p> <blockquote> <p>I honestly wish Riri had been done well because I don’t mind the concept<p> Meme
