cultural irrelevance hitting an absolute high
Wrong, this is probably a golden age in Capeshit now becoming mainstream instead of just archetypes like Superman and Spiderman. The books themselves are shit, just as WWE's events are kind of shitty, they are well known,
sales and interest dwindling by the week
Their traditional sales and the like are down. But they are making bank of of merch and licensing. Just as WWE no longer banks off PPV, Marvel no longer banks of comics
open disdain for their fans
Triple H can do it openly because he plays a bad guy on TV, and uses his role to vent on the Wrestling fan (arguably one of the worst of any medium). Alonso, and the rest of the goons at Marvel has no right and is a disgrace when he insults the fans. Comic fans are some of the most docile and timid, and they embarrass themselves.
characters get pushed hard despite nobody caring/hating them (Reigns and captain marvel obviously)
You got me there. Although WWE can fix it by turning Reigns heel. Marvel has some soul searching to do, and it won't be easy.
too many fucking events
WWE doing events is good. Marvel has had a burnout
storylines either make zero sense or are the lamest thing imaginable
Marvel's have been pretty easy to follow, just kind of bad . WWE's writing has always been kind of bad.
no likeable characters in any degree
WWE has a handful of beloved guys on the roster. Marvel has a bunch of normie bait like deadpool, and venom
rely on old timers to draw temporary interest (Goldberg, Gerry Conway, Jack Kirby wank)
WWE does it pretty well. Marvel has done jack all
political statements are pure unabashed fail every time an attempt is made
WWE is so bad it's good. Marvel is just bad
