Marvel Comics has announced plans to revitalize its entire publishing line in 2018, promising new creative teams, new series and more.

The publisher has released a piece of promo art by Jim Cheung, along with a video hosted by current Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski, promising a new direction for the Marvel Universe in the coming year.

Marvel Comics has announced plans to revitalize its entire publishing line in 2018, promising new creative teams, new series and more.

The publisher has released a piece of promo art by Jim Cheung, along with a video hosted by current Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski, promising a new direction for the Marvel Universe in the coming year.

“I can say, walking through these halls, I have never seem more enthusiasm and more excitement for where Marvel Comics is going this year, Cebulski effuses in the video. “Not since Marvel NOW! have we have we had such an ver-arching, line wide change of talent on the Marvel Comics line.”

While the video stops short of detailing any specifics, there are a few things that indicate at least some of Marvel’s plans. First, the prominence given the various characters co-created by Brian Michael Bendis, who signed an exclusive deal with DC Comics in late-2107, indicate that as promised, Miles Morales and Jessica Jones will remain a major part of the Marvel Universe following Bendis’ departure.

We also see the return of the original, male Thor to the lineup of heroes, apparently no longer “unworthy,” and in possession of of a new hammer, perhaps indicating the possibility that Jane Foster may continue to bear the Thor mantle as well. The video places an obvious emphasis on Ant-Man and the Wasp, indicating that the publisher will likely be attempting to increase the prominence of the character as their sequel heads to theaters this summer.

You can't fool me that easy, Marvel. I know nothing's going to change.

Well, Cebulski is certainly trying his hardest to unfuck things. If that image is anything to go by, take not of the important stuff.
Real Thor
Peter Spidey up front
actual Logan, not old man Logan and not x-23 Wolverine
Tony Stark Iron Man, not Iron Negress
Banner Hulk, not Cho Hulk
Rogers Cap, not Captain Falcon
It's a step in the right direction, at least.

Lincoln Adams

Not since Marvel NOW!
Kek. Naw, I'm good. Reminds me of the Heroic Age overhaul, where they made a big deal of going back to the classic characters and there would be no heroes fighting heroes and big events. Then nothing actually changed. While Cebulski being in charge does give me a bit more confidence in this, I'm still not sold. I'll check back in a year and see if it still has its momentum. While hopefully this is a good sign that they're cleaning house of SJWs, I have my doubts that it'll fix the other major problems Marvel has. Like will it continue to be event after event after event, each touting themselves as the most important moment in Marvel history?

Didn't they already try a Rebirth with Legacy? Did it fail so badly that they had to reboot again?

Andrew Roberts

King Weeaboo looks like he's really trying to assuage the fears of retailers by putting that shit up front, while promising them the readers they did get won't get chucked out by including Mileserman and Ms. Mudslime.

I'm still not going to buy a fucking thing though.

Bentley Howard

Legacy was literally just Marvel saying:
Here's the old Hulk/Wolverine/Iron Man/Thor/Captain Marvel meeting the new Hulk/Wolverine/Iron Man/Thor/Captain Marvel!
See how much better the new ones are!?
Do you fucking see how much better they are!?!
YOU LOVE THE NEW ONES! THE NEW ONES ARE BETTER! WHAT, YOU'RE NOT RACIST/SEXIST ARE YOU?
It was awful. The only saving grace was that it didn't last long as each one was 1 issue.
They also slapped 'Legacy' on issues of comics but it didn't have much to do with it. I'm not really sure what the point was.

Liam Green

At this point they could make the best runs of these characters in years and I still wouldn’t support them. They’ve burnt up every bit of goodwill I had towards them. It’s a shame daddy Disney keeps them afloat.

THE BIGGEST SHAKEUP IN six months of MARVEL HISTORY
Surprised they're not just synchronising the events and relaunches to the movies by now. Making whoever is in cinemas the "main character" of the universe until the next flick comes out.
Naturally they'd still fuck it up spectacularly and not attract a single new reader from the box office to the comic shop (if they can find one in the first place), but it would make their brand of 'sense'.

Isaiah Wilson
Isaiah Wilson

Even though I don't care for them at all, because bad writing has really dragged them down into the kool-aid depths with the rest of the token diversity characters, Miles Morales and Kamala Khan are selling well by Marvel's present standards. They are at least well established and recognizable to some extent, which is more than you can say for Iron Negress or Moon Niglet… or "The Real Hawkeye" or that team of Cosmic Niggers they were pushing during Civil War II.

They threw a metric ton of shit at the wall and Black Spidey and stretchy Muslim are the two turds that stuck.

Mason Lopez
Mason Lopez

They threw a metric ton of shit at the wall and Black Spidey and stretchy Muslim are the two turds that stuck.
They were also the first 2 out of the gate and didn't come with a cost to the original characters. Well, ultimate Peter did die, but 616 Peter was just fine and Miles didn't run around saying how terrible Peter really was, as far as I know. They were cases where newer readers could enjoy the fresh start of these characters and older fans could still read about the originals.

No one is going to care about woke, sassy black girl replacement #73 that's going to shit on the OG character people enjoyed.

Christopher Carter
Christopher Carter

It's funny that they're doing away with the legacy numbering (as ridiculous as it was). Didn't Marvel do duel numbering in the early Quesada/Jemas days?
Legacy was a rushed quick fix to reassure retailers and stall for time and brainstorm an actual game plan. Note how irrelevant the Generations one-shots ended up being, despite them piggy-backing off the end of Secret Empire.

But it's important to remember that DC's Rebirth was also kind of a last minute attempt to save face from a botched relaunch (DCYou)

Surprised they're not just synchronising the events and relaunches to the movies by now.
Marvel Entertainment might as well be openly competing with Marvel Studios now, so it's no use trying to cater to people who will never touch their books. Why else do you think they were so eager to cannibalize their older reader base for trendy millenials?

“Over the next couple of weeks, we’ll be rolling out new beginnings for a few of our key franchises—new creative teams, new starting points, new storylines—all the big stuff that we’ve been building towards since Marvel Legacy began. This isn’t a clearing of the slate—while these new starts will kick off with new #1s, we’ll be maintaining the classic Legacy issue counts as dual numbering on these titles as well,” says SVP and Executive Editor Tom Brevoort.

THE END OF AN ERA FOR MILES MORALES!
Marvel Comics proudly presents the final issue of Bendis’ epic (bio-electric) run! Over seven years and across two universes, Miles Morales has been an Ultimate, a Web-Warrior, an Avenger and a Champion. A New Yorker, a student, a son and a friend. And whenever the city needed him (and one time when all of reality needed him), he was always SPIDER-MAN. Don’t miss the chance to see comics superstar Brian Michael Bendis bid farewell to one of his most beloved creations, and to glimpse what the future may hold for Miles Morales.

Like said. There is no hope for them. Retcon them away or just never use them again. Wipe the whole slate clean and just give us like 100 issue max runs of a character at a time then make up a new one no one will care about. Least then the properties people liked won't be sullied again.

still including captain dyke, miss muslim, spider-nig,
Captain Marvel has a movie coming out this year, it'd be retarded to not try and include her in this year's push. As long as the movie isn't a horrible flop, which never happens with Marvel movies, there will likely be people interested in picking up comics with her in it. As for Miss Muslim and Spider-Nig, they're the only "not absolutely ass" things Marvel has come up with in their diversity push. Disavowing them seems silly, since they actually have a legitimate fanbase.
Well, ultimate Peter did die, but 616 Peter was just fine and Miles didn't run around saying how terrible Peter really was, as far as I know.
I originally liked Miles in the Ultimate universe, specifically becase they gave Peter a dramatic and heart-wrenching sendoff, and becomes Miles spent his time feeling like he could never fill Peter's shoes. I didn't read the entire Ultimate series of him, but I read up to his mom being killed by Venom and it was enjoyable. The issue with him now is that he never developed a personality aside from being in Peter's shadow, except not Peter isn't dead so that entire character conflict is gone.

If you really believe that is a good character you need to rethink your taste. Miles is a fucking HORRIBLE character and a Gary Stu to boot. The only character out of that “teen titans” knockoff group that was worth a shit was Kid Nova, and only for a couple of issues when he started to become self aware and question what it was to be a hero, how the other heroes were acting, and if he even had a place on earth.

Then develop them into something original that aren't shitty tokenized knockoffs of pre-existing characters. Turn the obnoxiously peppy muslim marvel into Rubberina, Plastica or whatever the fuck you wanna call her. Give them their own original lore and rogues. The fact that they got famous despite being diversified versions of pre-existing characters is irksome. Even pic related was an original idea with no pre-existing progenitors despite becoming some fat acceptance icon.

Or better yet, make them new mutant students for Prof. X who decide to do their own thing and never actually get to meet the heroes that inspired them but admire them from afar. Its that simple.

Also this.

Parker Green

and if he even had a place on earth
He obviously doesn't. Nova should spend as little time on Earth as possible, ideally nearly none, and deal with cosmic threats instead. It is annoying, because there are good stories that could be told with this character. Making him leave Earth and make his story a coming of age odyssey in space would be interesting. Any visits to Earth should only be used to illustrate how his time dealing with space stuff changed him.

Fuck Bendis and other hacks that replaced DnA. That fat faggot even managed to drag his favorite Mary Sue Kitty Pryde out into space and make her a member of GotG.

Never read up to that stuff happening. I liked what I did read of him, but I haven't read most of his stuff at this point. As for
<Characters instantly like him upon meeting him
That stuff happened in the Ultimate universe that I read of him, but it was more of everyone feeling really awful about how they treated Parker-Spiderman up until his death, and everyone was trying not to make the same mistakes again.
That's basically what i was saying. They have fans, and they're not great characters, but there are people that like them. And the argument of, "You should write these characters better" basically applies universally.
But she does meet Ms.Marvel, calls her a piece of shit, says she regrets ever being her fan, and decides to try and make the "Miss Marvel" name mean something good again.

Kevin Myers

Holla Forums is one person
She does end up meeting her faggot but the whole point is to not meet them, have them simply serve as an ideal to reach for. Give them something to strive for, because the eventual meeting was lackluster.

Turn the obnoxiously peppy muslim marvel into Rubberina, Plastica or whatever the fuck you wanna call her. Give them their own original lore and rogues.
I was actually thinking in a lore for her in a free hour in college:
It keeps the same first 4 issues but then she has to fight a guy who can change his density from gas to liquid to solid (soft sci-fi, don't ask me how his internal organs stay in their place).
He is also a radical muslim who wants to implement the Sharia Law in New York, he progresses by exploiting the feeling of being an "oppressed minority" on the local muslim youth and turn them from "moderates" to "radicals" despite that he himself believes the local muslim youth to be pampered and soft.
So Ms. Muslim now has to keep her friends, family and neighbors as moderates while finding a way to stop the radical leader without breaking the laws of the moderate Islam about no killing while the radical leader can just kill left and right because is not against his beliefs.
It was a really slow hour, but instead of taking such a concept, we got this:
But she does meet Ms.Marvel, calls her a piece of shit, says she regrets ever being her fan, and decides to try and make the "Miss Marvel" name mean something good again.

Incoming movie, cartoon series on Disney XD, wasn't a bad character without Bendis hands, to make it look more like the film.

Baring him having an inability to get rid of the diversiteam hires; worst you can get is more stuff like Marvel Disk Wars or K-On but with muties.

She was massive wasted potential.

Caleb Gonzalez
Caleb Gonzalez

Wait, I thought she had cancer; not aids.
She does. But for all the pushing of Carol as the biggest female character in the MU, Whor outsold and was better received than her. And if one thing is true about Marvel, no matter who is in charge, is that if something slightly works they'll run it into the ground.

Don't tell me you can't see some bullshit like:
<Jane Foster was such an amazing warrior and the bestest at everything that the elder gods (or whomever) gave her back her life, much to the chagrin of sexiest Odin
If nothing else, I'll bet the reason Thor has a gold hammer is because no one but Jane Foster will be worthy of lifting the old one.

Juan Anderson

Still makes me laugh.

Whor outsold and was better received than her
Once Thor gets his shit back; Whors sales will drop hard while original Captain Marvel has been dead long before Marvel went insane and Carol was shit even when she looked like a female so I figure they'll just end up evening out if Marvel can get good writers again.

Kevin Mitchell

You know it'd be curious to see some Western Muslim who becomes radicalized because people make fun of him and he joins ISIS only then to encounter YPG and Yazidi fighters and get captured by them and tries to pull the whole "oppressed minority" angle on them. It'd be kinda funny to see that.

Gwenpool had some good in it to begin with. That and normally Gurihuri's art allowed Hastings to do his better writing and leaving the mediocre writing for other artists in filler issues.

Odin is sexist
Was he ever sexist to begin with? I get the feeling they made him into that just to give Fem Thor someone to go against.

Alexander Long

He was a shit to Jane Foster, tbh. One time he judged her unworthy of Thor's godly humps by giving her Sif's powers and expecting her to fight like Sif, which was admittedly a jerk move.

To be honest, Whor did sell more in local stores, because people found her more attractive and also because they wanted to laugh at it. "Captain Marvel" has no sex appeal or a "so bad its funny" appeal. Its just straight up unredeemable. I just wish Thor would go up to Whor's corpse and take the hammer back. One of the stupidest things they did was not call her She-Thor or Lady Thor or even Goddess Thor. Anything to make this bitch a more marketable piece like any other female doppel of classic heroes that were made over the years. They literally set her up as a replacement of the original much like the rest of the "All-Different" Avengers, but it backfired. She could've been as beloved as She-Hulk but instead they made her into some kind of virtue signalling icon.

Are you kidding the gamers where able to show the genaral pubic that the SJWs are scumbags, exsposed a great deal of crroruption among games journalis, it cost Gawker millions which made it easier for Hulk Hogan to take it down, and has given people courage to stand up to the SJWs messing with their hobbies.

and has given people courage to stand up to the SJWs messing with their hobbies

That just lead to other faggots messing with our hobbies, like poltards and r_thedonald fags, who use the fear of sjws to infiltrate our communities. Even gamergate wasn't immune. When the 2016 election was approaching, pol all but took over gamergate to shill for their conservative agenda and gamergate became a shell of it's former self.

Which leads us to "comicsgate". Gamergate fags have become convinced that sjws are the source of all problems in media, so they think we need a "comicsgate" to purge them. However, a "comicsgate" would hurt us more than help us. It would empower the irrelevant joke that is comics journalism and give the big two a new angle to shill comics. Worst of all, a "comicsgate" would immediately stop the decline of the very sjw books people are bitching about.

Are you high? When far right morons like the poltards tried that by making GGrevolt ( a group that wanted to fight SJWs using SJWs tactics) Gamergate shunned and called bullshit on it .

What have the sjws done? Got hired by Marvel to write characters who were cooked up in board meetings? Be terrible writers?

You guys are building up sjws as some big monster in comics when they're just flies on a corpse. Really, looking at their history, how can you take the big two chasing hashtags seriously?

Jeremiah King

It's not like they take formerly beloved characters, pump them full of blatant politics and diversity, and then run them into the ground or anything.

I can tell you right now you weren't reading any of the "sjw" books before this shit started. You think of them as "beloved characters" because you're a fucking casual who only knows about comics in passing. You had absolutely no investment in it until Gamergate was a thing and are suddenly "shocked" to find out they raped some character you only know from a movie.

I was around when DC literally raped Sue Dipney. I was in comics when DC shot Ted Kord in the head. I read when Keven Smith wrote that Batman pee'd himself during Batman: Year One. I know about "Trouble". I've been so deep in this shit that I know your "beloved character" plea is a load of bull. They've raped all of these characters hundreds of times and the only reason you care about it now is "muh sjws".

So can just take your "comicsgate" and shove it straight up your ass you disgusting piece of shit. You want us to fight over a fucking hill of garbage.

Samuel Thompson
Samuel Thompson

What have SJWs done?
Let's see they made comics that filled not only with misandry, and saying how every white person is a member of the KKK, they turned characters like She-hulk, Carol Danvers, and Gamora into swamp donkeys to pander to sex negative feminist, and turned other female characters shrill bitter and unlikeable. They formed hate mobs to go after people like Frank Cho, and EVS. They're still trying to get C.B fired from Marvel. Don't get me started on them trying to do harm to Youtubers that criticizes them.

Sebastian Bennett

lists a bunch of crap
can't list specific examples

Why is it that if someone mentions some obscure comic writer, we can get a bunch of twitter screen-shots of dumb shit they said, but when I ask about sjw shit in comic I just get a bunch of a generalizations?

Liam Powell
Liam Powell

Here's some examples Gabby Rivera's America. comic filled to the brimmed with racism.

Bendis making the god-awful Riri Williams and have her replace Tony Stark. Riri is so bad a character that she gives poltards ammo.

Jane Foster and mockingbird being made into mouth pieces for the feminists

Storm being made a Racist in the crappy Black panther and the crew comic.

Female characters like Gamora, and Carol being made to look more like males than male characters.

That's just the tip of the iceberg.

Carter Martinez
Carter Martinez

Finally, something to discuss.

First off, all of that shit is either dead or dying. America's getting canned this Wednesday. Riri is on her way out. Jane's going to die. The Mockingbird book got shit-canned back in 2016. Black Panther and the Crew was shit-canned just before release. The stuff about Gamora and Carol looking too masculine is neither here nor there.

The Direct Market has basically flushed that shit out of the mainstream. Marvel fucked up, flooded the market with hashtag books, and since comic shops are the customer in the Direct Market, they got mad at Marvel for giving them unsellable drek. In turn, Marvel cuts their losses, keeps only the successful hashtag titles, cans the rest, fires the Editor in Chief, brings in a new guy, and the system continues as it has for the last thirty years.

However, I don't consider that a win. All I wanted was good comics. I wasn't getting good comics before the sjw shit and I'm more than likely not going to get good comics now. Nothing has fundamentally changed.

Aiden Morgan

They aren't innocent, but SJWs are a symptom of things going to shit, not a cause. Comics have been dying far far before these rainbow-haired faggots came into the picture. Shit like Ultimatum sinking entire universes, Alan Moore getting screwed out of his own creation by DC, the monopolization of distribution by Diamond, and so many other examples have been sending us into a death spiral where the only release is for the Big Two to go under and the industry to crash.

Nolan Richardson

Gavin Martinez

This. It seems both sides of this often retreaded argument on here is a result of people talking past each other, with maybe a bit of shilling mixed in to drag it out on longer than it should be had. It is like arguing over television. The jews could fire every left leaning creative employed under them and hire the best non-biased talent they could find. Would it save television from streaming though? They may have a few more hits and improved ratings, but people are still going to be steadily migrating to streaming if they haven't already. I hate SJW's as much as anyone and would love to see them removed from any position of influence. Having said that, I understand that their infestation within the comics industry is only a small part of what is wrong with the comics industry. Just replacing them won't "right the ship" and perhaps nothing will until the Big 2 die.

Nolan Peterson
Nolan Peterson

Yes. The left literally wants to destroy and genocide whites. They literally want the future to be be browns and jews.
The right campaigns for whites to be allowed to continue existing.
Anybody who argues differently is either a shill or a useful idiot.
Comics are yet another industry the Left are trying to co-opt completely or, if they can't, destroy to demoralize whites. That's what everything has been about since the end of the second world war. People are only noticing now because the jews pushed too hard too fast within the past ten years because they thought they'd already won.
Accept it or go back to reddit.

Dylan Wright
Dylan Wright

The comics industry is a cluster-fuck. Management that is short-sighted and out-of-touch with reality, staff that are inexperienced, a sales system that relies heavily on gimmicks, and a market system that puts all of the risk on shops buying the product.

That's why a lot of us want the entire thing burn to the ground.

Blake Johnson
Blake Johnson

At this point, mainstream comic book industry is not salvageable. Big two have to die or shrink. It is never good when an entire industry is dominated by two companies. If comic gate were to succeed, it would help to prevent the decline of big two.

They are on editorial and HR staff. They have the ultimate control of what is kept and removed from the book, and who gets hired.

Big two had problems almost from their inception. However, before SJWs came along, they did not have a convenient way to dismiss all criticism as racism/homofobia/sexism and did not pat themselves on the back for implementing retarded changes. I would take retarded edgeleords and marvel zombies of 90s and early 2000s over today's SJWs any day.

Pre-Women in Refrigerators (and similar blogs) you would not get in trouble for daring to not treat female characters with kid gloves, or other content that would offend blogger's and social media activists' sensibilities. But guess what? They were let into the hobby, entered business end of things, and now too many editorial decisions are made based on feedback from selected websites and groups on social media.

Burning most of American comic book industry and building something new and improved is the best long term option.

Adrian Martinez
Adrian Martinez

They have the ultimate control of what is kept and removed from the book, and who gets hired.

If that were true then Eddie Berganza would've been shit-canned from DC long before 2017.

With the editorial claim, I'm assuming you mean Heather Antos, the editor in the infamous "Milkshake" photo. She's an assistant editor, which means that all of her decisions have to be approved by actual editors. In addition, she only oversees four titles, none of which are tentpoles, and one of them, Gwenpool, is getting canned this Wednesday.

Here's the thing: I want there to be an sjw conspiracy in comics. If there were an sjw conspiracy in comics, then Marvel would double down on their unsellable hashtag books and bring down the entire industry. Comic shops would close all over the country due to the loss of over half their revenue. Without the shops, DC will find making comics unsustainable and massively downsize. Diamond would file for bankruptcy. The entire Direct Market would collapse if Marvel really believed the social justice bullshit. It would be glorious.

But no, that isn't case. It was just a fucking trend Marvel chased and now they're abandoning it as they right the ship, something I called way back in 2014.

Isaac Thomas
Isaac Thomas

Yeah, Loeb; got them mixed up. Bastard things episodic shit is better because people can miss episodes.

They all got hurt enough that they got sold off; if Kotaku hadn't been bought it would've died along with Gawker.
Polygon
With the shit they put out; it's only a matter of time.

Journalism
The whole point was to get rid of old ones bringing the hobby down and replace them with new sources and if they fall to the same bull as the old; fuck em'.

Marvel was constantly doubling down up until they really fucked up by making Captain America into a Nazi which led to Twitter and Chans being of the same mind though with more laughter in the latter. I don't even think the Comicsgate thing started until the SJWs started trying to get artists fired a month or two ago which wasn't long before Marvel made its change.

They've only doubled down, especially since the 2016 election
They fucked them up so much they've gone suicidal.

Without SJWs at least there would be a few good things to read as the comic world marches towards its death.

John Gutierrez
John Gutierrez

Comicsgate was never a thing. Comic journalists made it up because they desperately want their own gamergate to fight against. They really need the views and the relevancy such a conflict would bring them. They so want to be part of the vidya sjw clique it's pathetic.

The only other people advocating for it were Shitty Web Comics, but they were retarded ass casuals.

For the Marvel "Doubling Down", that's actually an interesting story of how stupid the comic industry is. Marvel saw some success with their proto-hashtag books, bringing in desperately needed new readers. So Marvel, being the geniuses they are, thought it was a good idea to drown out these new readers by flooding them with more books and cross-overs that they never wanted. They hoped they could turn those new readers into "Marvel Zombies" and solve the dwindling readership problem overnight. Which leads us to Marvel's current situation.

It'll probably go down as one of the monumentally stupid decisions in comics history, like the DC Explosion/Implosion, and Marvel causing the Great Comic Book Crash of 1993.

THOR #1
Written by Jason Aaron
Art and cover by Mike del Mundo
On sale 6/13/18
THOR #1, written by Jason Aaron with art by Mike Del Mundo, sees the start of a new mission for the God of Thunder. The artifacts of Asgard have been scattered across the Earth, and to reclaim them, Thor will have to face some ugly truths…Like the production cost of hundreds of new hammers! And he’ll need every last one of them if he’s going to stop the unstoppable when none other than the Juggernaut joins the fray.
Emerging from his landmark run on MIGHTY THOR, Jason Aaron is ready for this fresh take: “On the one hand, I still feel like I’m writing the same Thor story that began six years ago in the pages of THOR GOD OF THUNDER #1. But at the same time, GOD OF THUNDER had a very different look and feel and focus than Jane Foster’s story,” he explains. “And even though Thor Odinson is now reclaiming his mantle, this new volume will also be going in a very different direction. Thor has a completely new status-quo. Actually the entire landscape of his corner of the Marvel Universe has been changed in the wake of the ‘Death of the Mighty Thor’ arc in MIGHTY THOR. But there’s still a War of the Realms raging, and Thor isn’t looking to stand on the sidelines.”

It is the way Big 2 capeshit comics do it.

Instead, it's a goddamned clusterfuck with the creative teams doing this ridiculous game of musical chairs to the tune of executive and corporate fuckery.

Thomas Hughes

Supposedly, but from I've seen he acts more like Deadpool and Deadpool is the kind of character that would lie about being Frank. But then again, since when has consistent characterization mattered at Marvel?

user, you can't expect the editors to keep track of stuff and have rules to the fictional universe that creative teams have to follow. That would take time away from twittering.

CAPTAIN AMERICA #1
Written by Ta-Nehisi Coates
Art by Leinil Yu, Gerry Alanguilan, and Sunny Gho
Cover by Alex Ross
" I have my share of strong opinions about the world. But one reason why I chose the practice of opinion journalism—which is to say a mix of reporting and opinion—is because understanding how those opinions fit in with the perspectives of others has always been more interesting to me than repeatedly restating my own. Writing is about questions for me—not answers. And Captain America, the embodiment of a kind of Lincolnesque optimism, poses a direct question for me: Why would anyone believe in The Dream? What is exciting here is not some didactic act of putting my words in Captain America’s head, but attempting to put Captain America’s words in my head. What is exciting is the possibility of exploration, of avoiding the repetition of a voice I’ve tired of."

Joshua Phillips
Joshua Phillips

But that was actually a really great character flaw for Jessica Cruz in the early Green Lantern comics. It was never because "The villains were so scary," it was because she was just a scared girl who thought she was way the fuck out of her league and had no idea what to do. Though as much as I liked it, it works a lot better on a characters whose superpowers literally depend on being self-confident.

Lucas Foster

I tend to gravitate toward heroes that have a stronger resolve, but yeah, I'll admit that Jessica Cruz seems to be more organically written than something Marvel would turn out with.

Oliver Bell

I probably wouldn't trust that character in a solo movie, because Jessica and Muslim-Bro played off each other really well.

The whole merry-go-round is fucking retarded. Take a step back and realize that all the best comics were written decades ago and unless you've already read all of them, you may as well read that stuff instead of Current Year Capeshit, all of which either sucks and/or is produced by leftists who want you dead in real life

Even taking the last five years of "SJW" stuff out of the equation, understand that Marvel has been declining in every way for DECADES now. They haven't listened to fans or truly revitalized the industry (let alone done anything innovative, different, or truly great) in DECADES. They didn't listen to fan or market response in the '90s, when they were losing 100,000s of fans and customers per month. Why would they listen now? They've NEVER listened, even when objectively better, smarter, and fairer people were in charge.

It's a different take on a Green Lantern. The ring chose her because her anxiety is so awful that even going outside of the house requires "Defeat Galactus" levels of of willpower.

I think he's exaggerating it a bit with the "Defeat Galactus" thing, but I can see the ring choosing her as a long term investment. Think about it, if you give the ring to someone like Jessica, who is an emotional wreck, they'll either crack under the pressure or they'll come out polished on the other side. Speaking purely pragmatically, what's the worst that could theoretically happen if one of the lanterns out there isn't cut out for it? They either resign or are killed in duty, and you assign someone else. If they make it through it all, you potentially have a lantern who has had their willpower refined and cultivated into something potentially powerful, simply because they had a lot to grow through.

It's a much better and logical extension of the Green Lantern mythos than suddenly deciding there is a rainbow coalition of rings of other emotions.

No, dude, it's just stupid. The ring doesn't select fragile minds that need to be taught to exercise will. It chooses the honest and the fearless.
Those are just two different flavors of dumb crap.

Green Lanterns aren't allowed to have different personalities and characteristics
Let me guess, you hate Diaz as well because no real Lantern would ever have to deal with the psychological fear of his ring crapping out on him since Green Lanterns aren't supposed to fear things.

Isn't that the one that had an episode that shat on classic Trek (luckily Netflix UK also carries Discovery, goys) and sex bots (racists might spend thousands on a brown-coloured appliance, then """rape""" it.

Isn't that the one that had an episode that shat on classic Trek and sex bots
Not to my knowledge, but I haven' seen the newest season. Even then, each episode is done by entirely different people, so it doesn't even matter if you didn't agree with one episode, since the next is going to have absolutely no relation.

Black Mirror is some limey faggot's show that was supposed to be kinda Twilight Zone but with the near future and advances in technology, but every episode has some awful twist, the storylines are full of poz, the writers are total faggots, none of them actually understand technology, and they have a moronic obsession with social media and reality tv shows.

It's pretty shit is what it is. Doesn't matter that each episode is a stand-alone plot if they're all retarded, poorly conceived trainwrecks with slightly above average production values.

Marvel just announced that Sentry is being brought back, and new series will be written by Lemire.
“The Sentry is a fascinating character,” Lemire tells ComicBook.com “I absolutely loved the original Sentry series by Paul Jenkins and Jae Lee when it first came out, so I jumped at the chance to write the character. The Sentry has a lot of emotional depth and a lot for me to dig into in terms of the psychology of the character. He is immensely powerful and has the potential to be one of the greatest and most important heroes in the Marvel Universe, but he is constantly undermined by his own dark side and his own self-doubt.”
“You cannot have The Sentry without the Void,” Lemire says. "But what I was very conscious of was not simply retelling the same stories that had been told in the past with Sentry and Void. I want to see their relationship and their characters evolve and go in new directions.”
It looks like at least of the damage done to him by Bendis is going to be undone.

What happened to underground comics? I know things are mainly digital now. Like that donald trump manga. but I've read a lot of digital copies of r.crumbs work. That was all "INDIE." But no way would "image" publish something so scandalous now. Are there smaller alternative companies?

But All the "indie" stuff now is mostly pozzed.
Most underground comics seemed to mainly be mature or adult material even if it wasn't directly pornographic. Thoughts on this?

Benjamin Martin
Benjamin Martin

What type of faggot calls thrm underground?

Austin Flores
Austin Flores

What kind of faggot doesn't think underground comics are a thing? Millennial and/or casual detected.

Most of them died off with the collapse of the 80's black and white indie boom. They were definitely a separate scene to the indies- indies always tried to duplicate the Big Two, more cape books, just usually a little edgier, imitation Metal Hurlant SF and fantasy, and a lot of furries, back when we used to call them "funny animals". The true undergrounds, the counter-culture of the 60's and 70's, sexually explicit, politically charged, and vehemently against everything DC and Marvel, was collateral damage when the bubble burst.
There's still the minicomic and Zine scenes, they carry on some of the momentum of that voice of dissent, but they come from a more Punk sensibility, just an angry kid with a Xerox. Undergrounds were usually more like a handful of college age stoners with a printing press. I wish there was an equivalent Webcomic movement, but all we get is Calarts pozzle and porn, and the porn is the best part.

Colton Perry
Colton Perry

Do you think the market crash of the 90s was the first step to its death?
No. The first step was probably the comic code. It turned comics from a medium with diverse stories for many demographics into 80% capes and kid oriented medium. Doing something like that to any medium is bound to cripple it in the long term.

Batman 89 was the first big Comic movie to be successful. Was the movie industry to blame?
You forgot about Superman films. And I doubt that movie industry is to blame. For some reason comics, unlike books, do not get a boost in popularity when they are adapted. Besides, currently Disney, WBs, and Fox are the ones helping to keep comic publishers afloat.

Why is everyone so shit now at their jobs.
Cronyism and limited opportunities to make decent money.

Jaxon Ortiz

Nowadays, an anarcho comic about killing cops and having sex with women isn't edgy or subversive, it's the same thing they do on all the late night talk shows and Nick shows.

Landon Murphy

You've missed the point of 's comment. Indie comics used to present unpopular ideas considered unacceptable at the time, but now they present the same ideas as the mainstream comics now. He's correct.

I'll explain, killing cops isn't edgy anymore since that concept is so prevalent in multimillion dollar franchises like GTA. What would be edgy now is if cops killed bad minorities without due process. That's why the Death Wish reboot was criticized recently.

Hot damn, any publisher who releases that adaptation should be a salt miner instead. The only thing closest to it was the Angel Cop maanga. It would be pretty interesting to see something like that, but I hope it's not a monkey's paw.

Depends on your definition of "alternative". Off the top of my head, there's Drawn and Quarterly, Adhouse Books, Alternative Comics (yes there's a publisher that goes by that name). Top Shelf probably counts, but they're an imprint of IDW now.

I uploaded it to the Holla Forums vola. Educate yourself, oppressor of the proletariat.

Didn't R. Crumb have a lot of racist comics though?

He did those for two reasons: the first, his contact with S. Clay Wilson made him change from doing comics as entertainment to doing comics as an open, uncensored form of self-expression.

The second was the hatred he had for his hippie fans.
