I don't really blame them.

I mean, comic companies are massive sell-outs, but you'd imagine there'd be some ethical line they wouldn't cross. Maybe a line that would be drawn just before "teaming up with a company who's major products are ICBMs and bombers".

It's kind of a questionable area to be in that most companies would try avoid.

Maybe they really do want to un-SJW thier lineup, but rather than just doing it, leading to a possible "strike" by the SJW creatives, they're just pulling a stunt that will make them all quit.
…except that's not how these entryists work, they'll cling to thier jobs AND strike, Marvel will have to back down, and the manure will continue to flow.

implying Marvel wouldn't just change the books and make them quit
implying the sjws working at Marvel have the spine to strike
implying Marvel wouldn't fire them immediately if they merely mention striking
implying the manure would stop with their departure
implying the manure hasn't been here for decades and won't continue until the comics industry burns to the ground

Do you try to be this stupid? I mean really.

Ryan Thomas

More likely than not, Disney arranged this on their behalf. I can't imagine any of the faggots inside Marvel Comics willingly setting up something like this. I doubt anyone on Marvel's executive staff would have the balls to try and drive away all their faggoty kool-aid swilling artists and writers by tainting the company's image.

But Marvel being a mouthpiece for ultra-left ideologues is completely factual and demonstrable. Where does the "theory" come into play?

Everything you said was a completely stupid and nonsensical conspiracy theory you cooked up because you had no idea how comics work.

Marvel doesn't need complicated plans to "drive sjws off books". All they would have to do, and what they're probably going to do, is simply continue publishing sjw titles then cancel them once they start dipping below 7000 units sold and reach a nice, even number for trade paper back. Phase old stuff out, phase in new stuff. Marvel wouldn't need to worry about backlash because cancelling low selling books is something that happens all the fucking time. The really sjw writers and artists would be out, leaving behind only the most spineless of them to kowtow to editorial demands.

As for your "strike" idea, anyone even mentioning a strike would be instantly fired. The Big Two have an extremely low tolerance for anything that could be even mildly construed as "unionization".

With all of this in mind, I safely say that you're a fucking retard.

Christian Scott
Christian Scott

Because you know all these sjw books are just raking in money amirite, OH WAIT no they aren't

Books get canned once they dip below 7,000 units sold and hit enough issues for a trade paper-back. How hard is that to understand?

Until then, they'll keep publishing them, because they only print the amount of comics ordered by shops, which means that as long as they're above 7,000, they're making back the cost of producing them plus some profit.

Fucking seriously.

Benjamin Roberts

At this point this faggot has been bitching about sjw's across the board like a moronic aids infected donkey. Yeah everyone knows they're there but constantly focusing on them and using them in almost every sentence structure shows off an obvious obsession for them and for no other thought than to focus on one sole topic. Id even go as far as to accuse the fucker of being responsible for the over saturation of SJW bitching threads, with 85% of them getting deleted because how low quality they are, along with their obvious bait like OP and the general focus to just bitch about SJWs when we already have thread discussing about them along with other subjects.
Pic related, just replace /pol/ with /tv/ and niggers for SJWs.

Why? Who thought that it would be a good idea? What does a defense company have to gain by putting product placement in a comic? Are they hoping that 30 year old nerds and hipsters will come to work for them? Are they hoping that comic book readers will buy their rockets?

I can't imagine any of the faggots inside Marvel Comics willingly setting up something like this.
Perlmutter is probably the only one of them who would be willing to do this and with connections to pull it off.

It was over Balkans. Serbs used Soviet era tech, borderline outdated weaponry, and Slavic technosorcery to detect the plane and shoot it down.

Zachary Russell

Serbs used Soviet era tech, borderline outdated weaponry, and Slavic technosorcery to detect the plane and shoot it down.
They were only able to shoot it down when the bomb bay doors were open, along with the fact it was on a coordinated bombing run, they planted a modified soviet missile system with a modern (for the time) long wave radar in its path and got a hit with 50% accuracy using two misses.
vid related its also 1am here and im too tired to webm shit
Hell even the rusky general at the time over seeing the serb shoot down admits to this being the case. Another similar example would be when the SR-71 used to make its rounds across the USSR, the Russians didn't try to track the plane alone because it was too damn fast but instead they tracked the tanker planes following the SR-71 because the plane had to make frequent gas stops to stay in the air, it only reached fuel efficiency when it reached top speed. So using the flight paths of the tanker planes and reported instances within their own country, they managed to track the SR-71's flight path putting their own mach 3 speed demon in front of it, scaring the shit out of the American pilot and when detected causing the man to hit the gas and fly away at near mach 3.5.

Plus, things have evolved since those 2 decades have passed and we're seeing stealthy air frames coming from countries that deemed stealth as a hat trick all those years ago.

You can honestly copy and paste it with any company and technically yes, comic book movies are a hit with kids, so the mindset is advertise with the main studio/ company to spread brand recognition among a younger generation. They wouldn't know any better because its run by mostly normal people and not internet autists, they only see the successes of the movies and decided to make a quick marketing blitz to inspire the little ones..

No promotional comic explaining about how drone operators are the real superheroes and you should lobby the government to buy their drones from Northrop Grumman so they can be ready in case Dr Doom declares war on them.
No comic trying to glamourise the lives of a group of engineers trying to optimise the fuel consumption on long range bomber planes.
No Captain America telling an arms manufacturer that they're the true American heroes.
Man, why can't people just learn to leave companies be so they can do stupid shit for the sake of money?

Official statement from Marvel:

“The activation with Northrop Grumman at New York Comic Con was meant to focus on aerospace technology and exploration in a positive way. However, as the spirit of that intent has not come across, we will not be proceeding with this partnership including this weekend’s event programming. Marvel and Northrop Grumman continue to be committed to elevating, and introducing, STEM to a broad audience.”

There you go.

bringing back all the white male characters
They're not though. Thor's still unworthy, Tony hasn't been confirmed for returning/getting out of his coma, and Cyclops is still dead. I'm not sure on Banner though. They can't bring back Steve Rogers, since he never went away. He got old, then he became a Nazi and rather then think of way out of it, they just magic'd him away and brought back a version of classic Steve from somewhere. Apparently Falcon still has the shield or at least a shield. They did bring back Wolverine, but there's still 4 or 5 knockoffs running around so it's all watered down.

Moon Girl, America, and Riri still exist with editors saying they're committed to the diverse characters. Miles is still called Spider-Man with a push to get him into every cartoon, video game, and now movie they make. Legacy was just a shitty scramble of an event to pay lip service to classic Marvel with no intention of returning things to a pre-SJW state.

release a comic book that nobody buys
rerelease it in trade paperback that nobody buys.
b-but the readers aren't the target audience, comic stores are.
sell pallets of non-selling comics to comic stores, they sit there gathering dust because nobody wants to read the adventures of Whor and Ms. Muslim. Eventually they stop ordering Marvel products because they take up too much space
Marvel stays afloat from Movie revenue and Disney shekels.
That's my understanding of the situation, but please, feel free to sperg out for another three posts.

Well duh, because things evolved enough that having a stealth doesn't means having a plane that looks and handles like a clothes iron.
