lmao literally no
I'm probably the only one that likes Damian's snarky, unfiltered character.
THIS IS LITERALLY A PRAYER COME TRUE
@doc-holiday: Not just that, but it seems that Marvel and DC are just out of ideas. I mean, Civil War II? I would prefer it if they had a fresh, interesting take on things with good story and plot. Instead, neither can really do that anymore, and every comic from them nowadays just seems bland in terms of content.
Hell, I know some people are gonna be upset by this, but I can't really stand when Geoff Johns writes Justice League events because all of the supevillains talk in some bland, generic way. It's like their only motivation is just to be eeevil just for the sake of it.
@doc-holiday: Ehh, I don't know if I would call it "pandering", per say. Pandering is more like that entire, "Make Jane Foster be the new Thor, while making Sam become the new Captain America, etc etc", or any initiative similar to that. I mean, I don't think that there's any black person that will say, "Cool! The black superheroes of Marvel know each other!" (or at least, I'm not).
You are right, though. There is a lot of pandering by Marvel and DC (mainly the former), but I don't know if I would call this an example of that. This is probably something along those lines, though, but "pandering" probably isn't exactly the word I would use.
And trust me, Marvel and DC aren't getting better any time soon. If anything, they'll only decline in quality, further than they already have.
@doc-holiday: It does seem pretty silly. That was kinda the impression I got from looking at this, but I don't really read or follow this comic, so I figured there was some context I was missing.
Some people tell me that this comic is pretty garbage anyway.
@doc-holiday: @the_stegman: @atheistknowledge:
Just asking, but what issue do you guys have with this? I know that these characters aren't as close to Rhodey as others, and perhaps the writer just gathered random black characters (personally, I don't even care. I don't even really read Marvel much these days), idk. I mean, Blade, too? I didn't even know Rhodey knew Blade.
Also, I don't understand how a gathering of black people is marvel saying "BLM" or making any political statement. That's the part that I'm also not getting
@dernman: You make a point, I agree. And yeah, I think I remember hearing something like that in regards to their reason, but it didn't make any sense to me. It's kinda sad how much power people like that have.
@dernman: Well, that's kinda how it works. Kinda like how freedom of speech means you can have an opinion or express yourself, and people have the right to express how they feel about your opinion. However, they can never ever take away your right to have that opinion. I think that's related to the first part, but I could be wrong.
To be honest, though, I kinda think that people were making too much of a deal out of that pic. And I don't really understand why the Batgirl one was taken down, either. Was it too dark for the book or something?
@dernman: ...To be fair, doesn't everybody criticize those that they don't agree with?
Anyway, not really sure what Frank Cho is like. I knew people were upset about a Spiderwoman cover he drew, but I didn't really care. Is that what you're referring to?
