So now Dark Horse will only have Hellboy and Manga. Even more so if Disney buying Fox means that Alien, Predator, and Buffy might go to Marvel as well. It's a shame, because if what Marvel did with Star Wars was any indication it is just going to be a waste of all these IPs.

Maybe Drak Horse will shell out money to get rights to Red Sonja or Vampirella, and save them from Dynamite.

Jason Aaron, the guy behind Whor, will be given free reign over Conan.
Through its incompetence, Marvel will ditch the whole swords and sandals. Conan will team up with women knights wearing full plate armor, there will be people shooting crossbows, and women in general will wear "sensible clothing," while males will shirtless and borderline homoerotic.

Its so depressing how realistic this scenario will be.

Vampirella is in more urgent need of saving than Red Sonja. Last time I checked she returned to the metal bikini, but her past as rape victim is still retconned and now she is a big slut. Vampirella on the other hand got her hair cut, is dressed like a grandma and is having bizarre adventures that aren't even wacky, they are straight up LSD hallucinations that somehow have room to poke fun at "muh alt-right" and "cuckposting".

They don't own him. They just have the license again. The only interesting thing that might come out of this is the possible collection of two What If issues involving Conan being transported to the present. And maybe decent compilations of the original Marvel stuff.

Might as well be just Hellboy, because their manga department seems to be way behind the competition at this point.

<not posting the press release in full
OP is a faggot.

Marvel Entertainment and Conan Properties International are excited to announce the iconic CONAN franchise will return to Marvel next year.

With over 650 issues from 1970 to 2000, Marvel brought fans the adventures of Conan The Barbarian, Conan the Adventurer, Conan the Savage and Savage Sword of Conan among other popular titles.

“From Barry Windsor-Smith to John Buscema to Neal Adams, a legendary line-up of amazing artists brought Conan to life in the pages of Marvel comics,” said C.B. Cebulski, editor-in-chief of Marvel. “It's a legacy we're now going to live up to with the talent we have lined up for the Cimmerian barbarian's homecoming in early 2019. We’re excited!”

“We’re thrilled to be working with Marvel and look forward to the new adventures in store for Conan,” said Fredrik Malmberg, President of Conan Properties International. “As the most well-known and creative publisher in the industry, we think Marvel is a great fit for our stories.”

With this deal, Marvel will again bring new and thrilling stories for Conan fans around the world. Details on upcoming comic book titles, collections, reprints, and creative teams will be shared at a later date.

Red Sonja, despite a Marvel OC, is owned by Red Sonja LLC. Dynamite is unwilling to give her comic book rights back to Marvel at this point.

There's no word yet on what will become of the Dark Horse OCs.

Paradox Entertainment owns Conan the Barbarian IP. Only the original stories by Robert E. Howard are in public domain. Paradox (or rather Cabinet, as they are called currently) claims to have the rights to all E. Howard's creations, but the whole story is a mess of vague deals and multiple shell companies.
And before you ask, yes they are connected to the video game company. Both of them were spun off from now defunct Swedish role playing game company, Target games.
Another interesting fact: Stan Lee Media Company sued them over Conan Copyright in 2011 when new movie came out, and lost.

Pathfinder
I do like D&D. Even though I've only ever played a mock version with a coin because you need actual people to play a real game. I feel like something about that isn't entirely right.

By twelve, her bow skills bested even the village's best hunters
twelve
Stop being so damn pretentious, you're supposed to be writing a character. She can be good but, not the best. Making her the best at twelve makes all the grown men in the village look like shit in comparison. Or maybe that's why her entire village was burned to the ground.

seeking her fortune and a happier fate. Both would prove elusive.
Drunk sluts don't find happiness. That's been scientifically proven.

likes little more than a cold brew and a warm companion in her bed.
Really wishing the whole "no sex unless beaten in fair combat" was still a thing.

You don't even have to rewrite the whole thing to make it work. And that's the worst part about it.

Pathfinder is REALLY bad. It's worse than Dnd in all matters, and it's managed by Pazio, who is just as pozzed as White Wolf.

I like how she personally killed every single one of the bandits by herself. She sets up traps to kill all of them while being twelve years old.

I've always wondered how bad the SJWness was in the game. In the comics, I know that the fantasy arab chick is girlfriend with the elf thief and you gotta love how John Carter (a Confederate soldier) is okay with their relationship because he is married to an alien anyways.

They fired the worst perpetrator of the socjus bullshit at least. Elements of wrath of the righteous tipped the scale from progressive to alienating
All in all the crunch is an improvement on 3.5 except for a number of feat taxes. The setting they designed is an ambitious kitchen sink in need of a number of improvements.

I think you guys are focusing on the wrong thing here. It doesn't matter in the end if she likes getting ass. The fact of it doesn't matter; the implications that it comes with are the problem.

Implies she's just a female Conan the Barbarian
She's more devoted to shitty human needs than her knight/valkyrie-like love for her Goddess
Rape is a taboo that shouldn't be talked about so we'll just omit it, that helps rape victims!
Her walking around so skimpily can just be attributed to her wanting another piece of ass rather than using her charms against her opponent

She's a character who's supposed to want more in life and will not do what she doesn't absolutely want for herself. Being so quick to open her legs stomps on who she was as a character, considering immense riches and the luxury of being a queen is something she shrugged off. You could argue that's part of her power as a character; she doesn't have a petty interest in men and is all the more dangerous for it.

They really would be better off if they just took more influence from Conan for her backstory if they were really going to change it like this. I guess it's better than the shitty reincarnation Sonja they had for a while. But take Darkhorse's CONAN run. At twelve, Conan was not the strongest by any sense of the word compared to the rest of his small tribe. He was a wonder in his age group and always stood out, but he wasn't a 12-year-old fighting or tracking better than grown men.

Ayden Mitchell
Ayden Mitchell

Yes, but it wasn't about the sex. She was above all the men that had previously wronged her. I mean, you can argue maybe there's problems in a guy fighting her and getting the best of her and all but forcing her to bed because she's bound by that oath, but the oath itself is fairly solid. She was taken advantage of to begin with because she was weak before. She said no to a King and couldn't fight off the men that he sent to kill her family and rape her. That oath is a promise that something like that will never happen again.
I know in some incarnations and at some points it's more like "oh this boy's sexy but you gotta beat me first~~" and there's this implication of wanting to rape her by beating her, but if you strip that away she's built on a solid foundation of a rape/trauma survivor that's not inherently problematic. If anything it's more offensive to remove her backstory as if it's taboo to talk about rape.
In my honest opinion I think they could make a legitimately good story by focusing more on her femininity and outright saying no to men rather than either jacking up her sex appeal or making her the female version of Conan. There could be a middle ground that I think would make for a legitimately interesting story where you don't shy away from the gore and sex but rather than glamorize it, make it even more disturbing. But that's just me, and if I was in control of the comic, she'd probably be entirely topless like with other warrior women in history and comics. Which would never happen, because American comics are shit.

In the original Howard stories AKA the only ones that matter, we never see Cimmeria, nor does Conan ever talk about it. At best we got some nebulous implication that he was either exiled for some crime or simply didn't like being a rank and file warrior and left at 15 never to return

He mentions it here and there. The implication was Conan figured there was a lot more out there in the world and went out to see and fight it. Also Cimmerians are unfun moody fags that only drink water.
