ms marvel: NO ONE WILL WATCH THIS No ONE WANTS7 /S UL JUL CARES FOA THIS its-bewitched: trilllizard666: keyhollow:Story matters more than sex, please always remember that. what’s funniest about this comic, I think, is the wildly inconsistent success or complete lack of in the properties and the vast, wild differences between how they were received in the run up to the premier of them as artistic/entertainment propertiesFiegbusters/Ghostbusters 2016 had a PR run that was mostly defined by a weird antagonism where they said detractors are just manbaby basement dwellers that hate women, along with pretty badly done trailers that people compared to Pixels. Remember Pixels? That awful Adam Sandler REMEMBER THE 80S vehicle/scam? That said, unlike Pixels, this Ghostbusters failed to make money. It flopped. It flopped terribly. So Strawman McGee was actually right, Nobody DID Watch This, besides weirdoes that used Holtzmann reaction gifs for a month and kept saying how gay they were for two of the lady Ghostbusters.Star Wars: The Force Awakens was a huge runaway box office success with people excited to see it, even though a lot of people were critical of Rey and how boring she was as a character, in comparison to Finn and Poe, who had a lot more interesting going on with their characters, respectively, and people were excited to see The Last Jedi. Then came the sequel. It was…still a financial box office success, but it was extremely divisive among Star Wars fans and any group of critics that aren’t deeply entrenched “establishment” film critics. And there’s rumors abound it wasn’t quite AS much a box office success as Disney would like, which along with Solo flopping, seems to have resulted in Disney pulling back their Star Wars output a little tiny bit. Possibly.Literally all the reasons that people were apprehensive about Wonder Woman pre-release were all reasons unrelated to her being a woman. She’s one of the most important DC superheroes, a founding member of almost all incarnations of the Justice League, and Frank Miller himself has called part of The Trinity of DC, along with Superman and Batman. People were apprehensive of a Wonder Woman film because almost all the previous attempts to bring Wonder Woman to film or TV have been some sort of disaster, from the Joss Whedon script that leaked that everyone took the absolute piss out of (which had a seriously troubled production that led to the Wonder Woman film we eventually got), to the horrible pilot that makes Wonder Woman into a bizarrely inconsistent crazed murderer. People were apprehensive of a Wonder Woman film because it was part of the badly executed DCEU, with the previous films before this including BvS and Suicide Squad, which were critically SAVAGED. People were looking at a Wonder Woman and dreading it cause they were like “oh god not another one of these fucking awful films”. and then Justice League afterwards was total dogshit. and yeah, there was a bit of controversy about Gal Gadot, but that’s from a mixture of people not being sure she could actually act well enough because she was mostly a model and was in a Fast and Furious film before this, and because she is a proud IDF member, which is kinda controversial because of all the baggage that comes with what the Israeli military frequently does in terms of war crimes. (granted, she was only ever in a non combat role when she served in the military, but come on, this website gave Adam Driver shit for joining the USMC and not doing anything combat related before he got a medical discharge cause he broke his collarbone lmao). it had nothing to do with being a woman.Literally nobody cares about She-Ra except for weirdoes into it, like the beanmouth manchildren animation adherents or the people that uniroically think SJWs are killing everything, and it’s a cheaply made Netflix show. You’d have to almost try on purpose to not make any money from a Netflix show with a low/modest budget. Also I know a few families with young girls and young boys and nobody I know seems to remotely give a shit about the reboot She-Ra. It’s all weird teenagers, shippers, and the type of people that send death threats for people drawing boobs while beating meat to the catgirl in it getting with the main character.Captain Marvel is a box office success and reviewing decently well, but even the critics that like it are leveling criticisms towards how badly shot and done some of the fight scenes and long shots are, and a popular sentient is a lot of the fights have it so that it’s almost impossible to tell what’s happening, which isn’t a criticism unique to Captain Marvel. However, most people that were unthrilled about Captain Marvel before launch…Thought the trailer looked boring (gosh, that’s familiar), or were people raising an eyebrow at how the film’s basically Air Force propaganda. And it’s probably worth saying here, Captain Marvel, or Carol Danvers just isn’t that popular a character and isn’t popular in comics at all. Marvel flagrantly kept trying to astroturf her into an A lister position after they realized they had (at the time), sold off the film rights to a majority of the popular female characters. Most all their popular heroes and anti-heroes and villains that were female are in the X-Men, which was owned by Fox, or in other films in other studios. Cue the pre-Disney buyout reboot of her. Which flopped as a solo title, by the way. Notice how almost all the stuff with Ms Marvel/Danvers Captain Marvel that does well has her as a MEMBER or a side character. She’s a C-level character that came into existence, pre-retcon, because a superpowered Kree’s DNA got mixed with hers in an explosion. She was an emergency replacement, out of universe because of the Captain Marvel DC/Marvel clusterfuck and lawsuits. She’s less a character, and more a device. And this also easily fits under the “needlessly, weirdly antagonistic PR umbrella”nobody that can string together more than a comprehensible sentence does not dislike this things cause there’s women in it, trust me lmao The issue with captain marvel is RT deleting up to 50k reviews from fans that dislike the film. The headlines are “Brie Larson defeats internet trolls!” Calling fans trolls sure does a lot to discourage them from getting into a movie.

 MARVEL V.P. 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.

<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>

Awesome! Here’s some suggestions on what you should read based on your favorite character.

Try the <i>Avengers </i>run from this era, written by Brian Michael Bendis. The <i>Super Solider </i>run is kinda weird but fun, too, like virtually everything Brubaker wrote. The art in <i>Super Soldier </i>and <i>Secret Avengers </i>during the Heroic Age is significantly better than the art in Brubaker’s previous runs imo.<br/></li><li><i><b>and you want to know why people ship Steve/Tony:</b> </i>friend, read literally any Avengers run where Iron Man and Captain America are on the same team. But if you’re specifically wondering this, it’s time. It’s time for you to read <i>Civil War </i>and cry.</li><li><i><b>You can probably skip:</b> </i>I’m gonna get murdered for this, but Brubaker’s <i>Captain America </i>and <i>Winter Soldier </i>runs are fun to read for understanding the MCU and if you want a more comprehensive understanding of each character’s backstory, and some weird AF arcs like Bucky fighting a bear with pecs in a gulag while shirtless. BUT. The art is so aggressively Jean Claude Van Damme 90s it’s hard to look at (for me). If you hate that style, you’re probably fine Wiki-ing.</li></ul><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="100" data-orig-width="500"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/bc3deb1f0d67c3c57578094693174566/tumblr_inline_no18n5pqTY1smllpg_540.png" data-orig-height="100" data-orig-width="500"/></figure><ul><li><b><i>and you just want to read about Natasha: </i></b>As much as I want Black Widow’s title to be written by a woman, honestly, her current run – written by Nathan Edmonson, with art by Phil Noto – is one of my favorites. The art is stunning and it’s chock full of fun cameos. Highly recommend. Two trades are available pretty much anywhere you can buy graphic novels, because she’s so popular.</li><li><i><b>and you want to understand why people ship Nat/Bucky:</b> </i>Welcome to the world of Ed Brubaker’s <i>Winter Soldier, </i>but be aware that the art is (sometimes) the kind of art where even if you can’t see Natasha’s face, you know exactly where both of her nipples are at all times. Also she spends a lot of this run being kind of a fighting fucktoy and advancing Bucky’s character development. Comics historically have not been written with ladies in mind, y’all. And yet there are a lot of good reasons to adore this comic, and there’s a reason it’s a classic.</li><li><strike><i><b>You can probably skip:</b> </i>Literally anything Greg Rucka worked on. Ugh.</strike></li><li><i><b>Update!</b> </i>Someone has informed me that Greg Rucka did not just work on <a href="http://www.gregrucka.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/bwidlspider1.jpg">this </a>pornified nonsense (which admittedly is a different Black Widow, but new fans might not know that) but also worked on a title with Devin Grayson and J.G. Jones that I’ve never read that is apparently amazing.

People ADORE Clint largely because of Fraction’s run, honestly; there’s some other good Hawkeye stuff, but this one is the best.<br/></li><li><i><b>and you want to see him make some use of himself as an Avenger: </b></i>The <i>Avengers West Coast </i>run that started in the 80′s is pretty fun, tbh. There are two volumes of an omnibus of all West Coast Avengers stuff, and also some trade volumes. Plus you get a bunch of Wanda Maximoff!</li><li><i><b>Bonus:</b></i> If you want something shorter and fun, try <i>Widowmaker. </i>It’s got Clint, Mockingbird, and Black Widow, and the art is pretty. (David Lopez, one of the pencillers, is currently working on Kelly Sue Deconnick’s Captain Marvel title.)</li></ul><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="100" data-orig-width="500"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/97abfeb25b3a1b5aa49a9b9b09fb5d43/tumblr_inline_no18o0jCIy1smllpg_540.png" data-orig-height="100" data-orig-width="500"/></figure><ul><li><i><b>and you’re into something people have very divided opinions about: </b>Planet Hulk </i>is the kind of thing people love or hate, but it’s been rumored that the movies are going in this direction, so it might be worth checking out.<br/></li><li><i><b>and you wanna see the Hulk destroy some stuff/are really into weird storylines: </b></i>Yo, <i>World War Hulk </i>is a continuation of <i>Planet Hulk </i>and involves the Illuminati. It’s a crossover event as well, so there’s some fun extra X-Men stuff.</li><li><i><b>and you just want to get your Avengers fix: </b>Avengers Assemble </i>is great for anybody who wants the familiarity of the film characters, but in comic form. It’s funny, fun, and you get an intro to some other characters but it doesn’t feel overwhelming.</li></ul><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="100" data-orig-width="500"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/3f35e2616d6cf04982addc4443ddc9d4/tumblr_inline_no18odGMtz1smllpg_540.png" data-orig-height="100" data-orig-width="500"/></figure><ul><li><i><b>and you suspect he has a drinking problem: </b></i>You’re right, and the arc where he confronts it is pretty damn good. It’s called <i>Demon in a Bottle </i>and it ran in 1979.</li><li><i><b>and you want to know more about Good Guy Tony:</b> </i>I hate to break it to you, but as Tony is one of my fave characters I can tell you this for sure: Tony Stark is a complicated, fucked up, deeply flawed person; he’s an enormous asshole; he’s selfish and egocentric and narcissistic. But also he has a bunch of Good Guy Tony moments. They are most notable, imo, in the Heroic Age immediately following <i>Civil War, </i>when he beats himself up constantly for being a dick. The <i>Stark Resilient </i>arc, written by Matt Fraction, is super duper good, collected in <i>Invincible Iron Man </i>volumes 5 and 6.</li><li><b><i>and the thing he was trying to do with his suit in IM3 was interesting to you, like what even was that: </i></b>Totally read <i>Extremis. </i>It’s the arc that establishes Iron Man’s modern image.</li></ul><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="100" data-orig-width="500"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/398a2ee8ff717fdeee752a1f14e320de/tumblr_inline_no18oudzex1smllpg_540.png" data-orig-height="100" data-orig-width="500"/></figure><ul><li><i><b>but you also would like to support a book about a female character: </b></i>The current <i>Thor </i>title has lady Thor.

Well, er, the six main characters, because this got MAD LONG and I can’t even imagine doing everybody else who’s relevant in Ultron. Jesus.</p><p><b>ANYWAY. If your favorite character is…</b></p><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="100" data-orig-width="500"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/226e0320ac90b7dbba38365b4d9c2e02/tumblr_inline_no18mq3EI11smllpg_540.png" data-orig-height="100" data-orig-width="500"/></figure><ul><li><i><b>and you also love Bucky:</b> </i>The Heroic Age will be fun for you, featuring Commander Rogers and Captain Barnes. Try the <i>Avengers </i>run from this era, written by Brian Michael Bendis. The <i>Super Solider </i>run is kinda weird but fun, too, like virtually everything Brubaker wrote. The art in <i>Super Soldier </i>and <i>Secret Avengers </i>during the Heroic Age is significantly better than the art in Brubaker’s previous runs imo.<br/></li><li><i><b>and you want to know why people ship Steve/Tony:</b> </i>friend, read literally any Avengers run where Iron Man and Captain America are on the same team. But if you’re specifically wondering this, it’s time. It’s time for you to read <i>Civil War </i>and cry.</li><li><i><b>You can probably skip:</b> </i>I’m gonna get murdered for this, but Brubaker’s <i>Captain America </i>and <i>Winter Soldier </i>runs are fun to read for understanding the MCU and if you want a more comprehensive understanding of each character’s backstory, and some weird AF arcs like Bucky fighting a bear with pecs in a gulag while shirtless. BUT. The art is so aggressively Jean Claude Van Damme 90s it’s hard to look at (for me). If you hate that style, you’re probably fine Wiki-ing.</li></ul><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="100" data-orig-width="500"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/bc3deb1f0d67c3c57578094693174566/tumblr_inline_no18n5pqTY1smllpg_540.png" data-orig-height="100" data-orig-width="500"/></figure><ul><li><b><i>and you just want to read about Natasha: </i></b>As much as I want Black Widow’s title to be written by a woman, honestly, her current run – written by Nathan Edmonson, with art by Phil Noto – is one of my favorites. The art is stunning and it’s chock full of fun cameos. Highly recommend. Two trades are available pretty much anywhere you can buy graphic novels, because she’s so popular.</li><li><i><b>and you want to understand why people ship Nat/Bucky:</b> </i>Welcome to the world of Ed Brubaker’s <i>Winter Soldier, </i>but be aware that the art is (sometimes) the kind of art where even if you can’t see Natasha’s face, you know exactly where both of her nipples are at all times. Also she spends a lot of this run being kind of a fighting fucktoy and advancing Bucky’s character development. Comics historically have not been written with ladies in mind, y’all. And yet there are a lot of good reasons to adore this comic, and there’s a reason it’s a classic.</li><li><strike><i><b>You can probably skip:</b> </i>Literally anything Greg Rucka worked on. Ugh.</strike></li><li><i><b>Update!</b> </i>Someone has informed me that Greg Rucka did not just work on <a href="http://www.gregrucka.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/bwidlspider1.jpg">this </a>pornified nonsense (which admittedly is a different Black Widow, but new fans might not know that) but also worked on a title with Devin Grayson and J.G. Jones that I’ve never read that is apparently amazing. So now I’m gonna read it, <a href="http://www.amazon.com/Black-Widow-The-Itsy-Bitsy-Spider/dp/0785158278/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&amp;ie=UTF8&amp;qid=1339381509&amp;sr=1-1">and maybe you’d like to also.</a> (Also, a bunch of you have asked why I don’t like Greg Rucka. I really like Greg Rucka! I just don’t like the shit in that first link.)</li></ul><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="100" data-orig-width="500"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/d13dcec72da235f791d9d75d8f368f26/tumblr_inline_no18nq7cgc1smllpg_540.png" data-orig-height="100" data-orig-width="500"/></figure><ul><li><i><b>and you want to know what all the fuss is about because Renner’s Clint is kinda eh and you don’t really get why people are so into Clint:</b> </i>All the fuss is about Matt Fraction’s <i>Hawkeye</i> run with art by David Aja, which starts with a trade volume called <i>My Life As A Weapon </i>and also is an excellent introduction to Kate Bishop, who is also Hawkeye. People ADORE Clint largely because of Fraction’s run, honestly; there’s some other good Hawkeye stuff, but this one is the best.<br/></li><li><i><b>and you want to see him make some use of himself as an Avenger: </b></i>The <i>Avengers West Coast </i>run that started in the 80′s is pretty fun, tbh. There are two volumes of an omnibus of all West Coast Avengers stuff, and also some trade volumes. Plus you get a bunch of Wanda Maximoff!</li><li><i><b>Bonus:</b></i> If you want something shorter and fun, try <i>Widowmaker. </i>It’s got Clint, Mockingbird, and Black Widow, and the art is pretty. (David Lopez, one of the pencillers, is currently working on Kelly Sue Deconnick’s Captain Marvel title.)</li></ul><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="100" data-orig-width="500"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/97abfeb25b3a1b5aa49a9b9b09fb5d43/tumblr_inline_no18o0jCIy1smllpg_540.png" data-orig-height="100" data-orig-width="500"/></figure><ul><li><i><b>and you’re into something people have very divided opinions about: </b>Planet Hulk </i>is the kind of thing people love or hate, but it’s been rumored that the movies are going in this direction, so it might be worth checking out.<br/></li><li><i><b>and you wanna see the Hulk destroy some stuff/are really into weird storylines: </b></i>Yo, <i>World War Hulk </i>is a continuation of <i>Planet Hulk </i>and involves the Illuminati. It’s a crossover event as well, so there’s some fun extra X-Men stuff.</li><li><i><b>and you just want to get your Avengers fix: </b>Avengers Assemble </i>is great for anybody who wants the familiarity of the film characters, but in comic form. It’s funny, fun, and you get an intro to some other characters but it doesn’t feel overwhelming.</li></ul><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="100" data-orig-width="500"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/3f35e2616d6cf04982addc4443ddc9d4/tumblr_inline_no18odGMtz1smllpg_540.png" data-orig-height="100" data-orig-width="500"/></figure><ul><li><i><b>and you suspect he has a drinking problem: </b></i>You’re right, and the arc where he confronts it is pretty damn good. It’s called <i>Demon in a Bottle </i>and it ran in 1979.</li><li><i><b>and you want to know more about Good Guy Tony:</b> </i>I hate to break it to you, but as Tony is one of my fave characters I can tell you this for sure: Tony Stark is a complicated, fucked up, deeply flawed person; he’s an enormous asshole; he’s selfish and egocentric and narcissistic. But also he has a bunch of Good Guy Tony moments. They are most notable, imo, in the Heroic Age immediately following <i>Civil War, </i>when he beats himself up constantly for being a dick. The <i>Stark Resilient </i>arc, written by Matt Fraction, is super duper good, collected in <i>Invincible Iron Man </i>volumes 5 and 6.</li><li><b><i>and the thing he was trying to do with his suit in IM3 was interesting to you, like what even was that: </i></b>Totally read <i>Extremis. </i>It’s the arc that establishes Iron Man’s modern image.</li></ul><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="100" data-orig-width="500"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/398a2ee8ff717fdeee752a1f14e320de/tumblr_inline_no18oudzex1smllpg_540.png" data-orig-height="100" data-orig-width="500"/></figure><ul><li><i><b>but you also would like to support a book about a female character: </b></i>The current <i>Thor </i>title has lady Thor.

That’s all I got! Remember that there is absolutely no shame in Googling the characters you like to figure out what you want to read, and wiki-ing the rest.
