"Tony needs more villains for Tony"

Fuuuuuck. Bendis is THE WORST.

All of Iron Man's villains are Tony Stark villains, because they almost universally were people out to steal Tony Stark's technology and/or market share. Iron Man spent THIRTY YEARS as "Tony Stark's bodyguard" because EVERYTHING HE EVER FOUGHT WITHOUT THE AVENGERS WAS TRYING TO GET AT TONY STARK'S STUFF.

I'm not sure if Drew technically counts but I'm so glad they changed her costume. Looked kind of iffy in the first pics, but seeing it under a decent artist it fits in a lot better with the other Spiderpeeps's outfits, and her old one was horrendously ugly and unsexy.

We've had this argument before and I don't feel like having it again. The tl;dr of it: we who don't like the art style think the artist makes people (not just Doreen) look ugly via the way they draw faces.

It's also a female-led comic that isn't all about angst, sex, or the more "serious" themes that comics love to explore these days. It's a goofy comic that doesn't take itself seriously, and those always manage to find an audience if they're well-written.

A lot of people think comic book art is pretty ugly most of the time anyway. It's not a popular opinion in comic book circles, so people may not want to bring it up, but a lot of comic book art is just boring and actively gets in the way of the storytelling. What the Squirrel Girl art lacks in prettiness it makes up for in visual storytelling, which is what the book's about anyway.

To be Erudite Hudlin, Coates would have to be well-spoken, but a complete moron. Fortunately, Coates is a well-spoken and highly intelligent person.

Will he be a good comics writer? I dunno. He's a good non-fiction writer but while there's certainly some overlap that's not the same skillset. But I don't think that's a point you have to worry too much on.

I've never read Hudlin's run vs. Priest's run, but I've not really run into any internet people who actually liked it.

Like, I've literally never seen anybody say they liked Reginald Hudlin the best. I've seen people say that they liked other writers besides Priest, or even thought the Kirby/Lee era was best, but nobody places Hudlin anywhere near the top.

I think by this point, most of us have seen what Hudlin is capable of putting out at his prime (the Black Panther special where they had Stan Lee make a spear-chucker joke right after we saw Wakandans throw a bunch of spears, anyone?)

On one hand its more of movie flavored cosmic marvel with all that made it great.
Like FUCKING Cosmo and 80's music.

But then the USM/AA/H:AOS bullshit start with its lame morals and arguments.
You can be a half-hero Gamora, shut the fuck up!

Well atlest they kill things without going all emo about it like some other heroes.
Because nothing says dead like frozen solid followed by space blow out.

So I recently got a subscription to Marvel Unmilinted and I was wondering if you guys had any recommendations for me. I've always been more of a DC guy so I haven't read much Marvel stuff.

So far I've read:
Cable & Deadpool
G.L.A.
Spider-Man Noir
Spider-Man Noir Eyes Without a Face
Moon-Knight (not sure what volume, but it was Bendis's run)
I've also read the first few issues of the current Ms. Marvel

So far I've enjoyed all of it. I'm open to just about any character or continuity so whatever you guys think is good feel free to recommend. My only preference is that the story (or story arc) is completed and that it isn't some big crossover event (I'd like to get to know the characters a bit more individually first).

I know there's tons of rec lists and stuff out there, I'm just wondering if anyone here has any specific suggestions. Whatever you think is good or 'mandatory reading.'

>The result of a themed cover month that saw Gwen Stacy dressed as various characters, the Deadpool take-off proved popular enough to earn back-up stories written by Hastings in HOWARD THE DUCK.

The crew now plans to chronicle this alternate reality adventurer as she makes her way through the Marvel Universe.

Mr. StonezWb42fBPMM
A kid like Miles would be treated as black no matter how much he talks about his Latino heritage; if anything, he’d be challenged on that for not looking “Hispanic enough”. He’d know enough about how cops treat black people to tense up whenever he sees a man in uniform. And he'd likely have enough life experience to know that, even if he doesn’t want to be “Black Spider-Man”, he will be anyway. He could pretend as if his difference—his race—doesn’t exist, but he’d know it would regardless.

The problem with those two pages lies in how the writers forgot to take all that into account so they could shove a ham-fisted “Why does race have to matter?” message into the story. (The fact that it looks like those pages are also taking a potshot at Marvel fans who asked for better POC representation doesn’t help.)

Different anon but I'm non-white and I think a lot of people on Tumblr do have a serious problem with overvaluing skin color to the detriment of their ability to see anything else, or holding it up as a cheap tactic to shut down debate.

On the other hand it's possible it's his way of lashing out against the one-drop rule when it comes to mixed people with partial African ancestry, as more young people seem to be doing these days. Or matters regarding the way the "of color" label, for all that's well meant by it, tends to be reductive and reaffirm the whole white/nonwhite dichotomy that colonialism forced onto us in the first place, especially when used outside of a US-specific context, as well as white-passing people of color or particularly tan members of "white" groups.

I doubt Bendis actually understands or intends all or maybe even any of that, but there are legitimate points of contention buried in there that other people of color, myself included have found really frustrating about the way (mostly American) people on Tumblr discuss matters of race.

Sorry for the triple posting but one thing I absolutely disagree with about these pages is Bendis's seeming anti-representation slant. Representation IS important, even if the way its advocates go about promoting it isn't necessarily the best, and while it would be nice if Miles was seen as something more than his race, we as a society simply aren't ready for that yet. And taking potshots at the need for representation in and of itself makes you sound like you're a coward afraid of any kind of social change, at the most charitable.

If we're lucky...wait, this is Bendis, so prolly not, but in the right hands, I think this whole thing is pretty legit.

If anything, with zero context, I can actually kinda agree with it. I can see the possibility of somebody like Miles having the personal opinion of not wanting to be celebrated as black Spider Man, but just Spider Man. That ignores some of the real world context involved, having a new character take up an old mantle isn't new, but Miles was handled pretty well (I think,) way better than the time they tried to make 616 Fury black by creating a super complicated story involving an illegitimate son and just ugh...

(I'm Mexican, for the record.)

There's good and bad involved with wanting to focus on Spider Man's ethnicity, and in the right hands this could be a really cool and complicated issue for the characters to talk about. Other heroes or civilians could be on board with wanting to talk about it more and Miles and other characters disliking that.

That's if this gets handles with subtlety, though. Fem-Thor doesn't give me that confidence.

In other words, a study funded by the tobacco industry that says tobacco doesn't hurt anyone doesn't mean as much as a study funded by someone who's been injured by tobacco use that says tobacco doesn't hurt anyone. This isn't some "offensive example of reverse racism," it's rhetorical common sense: a person with a personal stake in the argument who argues against the side that benefits them most is more relevant than a person arguing in favor of the position that they stand the most to benefit from personally. Not having to change their behavior most benefits people who already get as many benefits from the current situation as they will get after the situation changes.

Arguing that celebrating increased diversity in leading roles is racist or dehumanizing is, ultimately, an argument that increased diversity is not a thing that should be celebrated. Which is the same thing as arguing that there should be no incentive (in terms of positive reaction / increased sales) for doing it. Which is the same thing as arguing that, from a business perspective, there's no reason to do it, because change takes a greater investment of effort than doing something new.

And when someone who suffers from not doing something new (i.e. someone who gets fewer opportunities to be cast as the leads in major movies, or whose children have fewer examples of people with similar backgrounds to themselves as heroes and role models) argues that doing that new thing is valueless, it means more than when someone who gains nothing from doing something new (i.e. people who already have unlimited options in terms of role models and acting jobs).

So I'm sorry if it offends you that white people are being so hard done by, that people might think your opinion that benefits white people more than it benefits everyone else matters more coming from a non-white person than it does from a white person. But the fact that it offends you doesn't make it untrue or unfair. It's the same reason opinions on the best cures for period pain matter more when they come from people who have menstruated.

...Dude...calm down...Are you serious right now?

I get where you're coming from, I do...fact is, I kinda used to be you...but you are not proving a thing by acting this way. Who even brought up celebrities and movies? Who argued anything about the status quo versus doing something new and business practices? We're talking comics. Not even that, we're talking this specific comic that's bringing up emphasis on a character's race vs. the character being non-white being incidental.

Ganke even agrees with the girl We haven't seen how this will pan out. Maybe Miles will change his mind, maybe he'll be right, maybe it'll be closer to real life where the real answer is frankly hard to land on and depends on constantly changing context?

Or maybe Bendis (the creator of Miles Morales and writer of this specific comic, by the by) is dropping his politics into his writing hardcore again.

We don't know, and frankly the majority of the conversation so far doesn't warrant everything that you've suddenly dropped on our lap.

Is it just me or does Spider-man get saddled with the most unhinged people in Marvel?

Good number of others get Mercs, Professional Killers, Career Criminals. Spider-Man its Experiments gone wrong and "You know, I think I'll wear spandex today, go a little insane and rob a bank." and maybe a handful of actual criminals.

Marvel goes into the Spider-man films again they should include some of his bottom level Batshit foes.

Also that costume is scary.

They listed all the shit they mixed into the "Devils Brew" Serum. Gamma Tech, Super Solider derivatives from a number of sources, Curt Conners Reptile formula.

Honestly it makes more sense than spending so much time and resources just trying to recreate the circumstances to recreate another Captain America-type soldier.

The results of the original 616 Super Soldier serum is pretty weak in the modern Marvel world, where criminals with labs set up in back alleys of major cities can give you far superior superhuman strength and durability with no downsides.

If Marvel writers finally dropped the reoccurring plotline of people trying to make a Cap knockoff when they already have greater means of manufactring superhumans available to them that would be a positive change

That's kind of the problem, though, isn't it? All of these characters are so leadenly iconic that they're doomed to spin in narrative circles until the heat death of the universe. There's no beginning, no middle, no satisfying finale, they're just there. It's why I just can't get into superhero comics at all, there might be the occasional serial that you can pluck out and stuff in a trade paperback and it's brilliant, but then it segues into more of the endless morass the rest of the company is putting out and you're essentially robbed of a proper ending to the story you just read.

I think we could do with a completely new comics universe that's much more manageable in scale - new characters to follow, new worlds to sink one's teeth into, something that isn't earnestly trying to get me deeply interested in the cultural significance of fictional totems that are older than my dad. Valiant Comics made a valiant (heh) effort back in the day, but what the Big Two could really do with right now is some proper competition.

I get that I link to BMD a lot. More than is probably necessary, in fact. But their editorial staff generally produces some Good Reads™, even if I don't agree with them all the time. And I like to share thought-provoking stuff. For nerdery like comics and comic-based films, stuff from BMD as of late is provoking thoughts that I can later turn into my own cohesive opinions. I spent my twenties being a lazy ass; forgive me for “borrowing opinions” every once in a while while I work out my own.

Or that 1979 one where he joined a white supremacist organization. Or even the 1975 arc where he was so fed up with Nixon he quit Captaining for America altogether 'cause it wasn't worth doing.

>Crazy plot developments happen in superhero comic books, is what I'm saying. If you actually want to get angry at 'em, you'll never have time for anything else. Besides, you could be reading cool non-superhero comics like Dreaming Eagles or Monstress if that kinda thing bothers you so much!

>There’s a lot of uproar online about how this storyline insults the legacies of Captain America’s Jewish creators, Jack Kirby and Joe Simon.

>Look, everybody who’s working on this story loves Captain America. I know that it may not seem like it today. But this book is edited by Tom Brevoort, who has been protecting this character’s legacy for a very long time now. He’s not gonna let me do anything that he thinks is going to endanger that character’s legacy and how the character is perceived. It’s always difficult when you’re at this point in a story, because you don’t just wanna tell people, “Everything’s gonna work out great!” Because that certainly may not be the case here. But what I think I can say with confidence is that with this story, our intention and our hope is that in its own unique way, it reinforces what everybody already knows about Captain America, which is his power as a symbol and what that means. We are approaching it from a different angle, but I think it illuminates the character in a way that we’ve never seen before.

>It’s always tough. The eternal divide is the reader wants the character to succeed, to be happy, to win. Our job is often to put the characters through things and that can often be mistaken for a lack of respect or care for the character. It’s just the reality of what draws people into these stories, whether you realize it or not, and this is going to be a major test for a lot of characters in the Marvel universe.

One, that's a horrible generalization. Two, Tumblr users making horrible generalizations doesn’t excuse you from the shittiness of yours. Three, I’m pretty sure most people know this will eventually be retconned/done away with. But at a time where Captain America is one of the most recognizable superheroes in pop culture (thanks MCU!), “Steve Rogers is a Nazi sleeper agent” feels like a cheap ploy for attention and book sales. (And yes, I know they’ve run stories like that in the past.) I’m amazed at how Marvel thought people would accept this idea with open arms and critical acclaim.

I can’t imagine the rest of this run doing well in sales after the reception to that issue.

None of the people who are angry have ever even touched a Captain America comic, so I wouldn't count on the "outrage" actually impacting sales. I wasn't aware that story hooks were "cheap ploys," but Nick Spencer said in the interview here>242966 that he fully expected to shock and outrage some people, and so did Marvel's staff, so they weren't expecting people to "accept" it with open arms. It's a story hook.

>242973
Red Skull's scene was for recruiting members for Hydra. Spencer said in the interview he did his research when constructing this scene. Red Skull was saying what leaders of "nationalist" groups say when they try to recruit new people, particularly in areas of poverty or low education, and this is to go to explain how Hydra seems to have a seemingly inexhaustible supply of people working for it.

If you think the Red Skull and Nationalism is right, you're the prime kind of person Hydra (or the real-world equivalents, American Renaissance, American Freedom Party, Creativity Alliance, Hammerskins, National Alliance, Pacifica Forum, and many others) would recruit for their cause. At least here you can say you were "red pilled by Red Skull" amirite.
replyreportdelete
242975
Mr. StonezWb42fBPMM
>242973

Someone on Tumblr pointed out a good reason why HYDRA would never have chosen a pre-serum Cap or his mother for recruitment: in the 1920s, being Irish and unhealthy during a time when eugenics was a popular idea—popular enough in the US for Hitler to use it as justification for his “perfect Aryan race” ideals—and the Irish were a legitimately hated ethnic group would’ve made HYDRA pass on both Steve and his mother. The writing ignores the historical context of the era in which HYDRA would’ve recruited Steve and Sarah Rogers.

And don’t forget how Captain America being part of HYDRA spits in the face of decades of continuity that shows Cap as a good, honest man. We’re talking about a man who once lifted Thor’s hammer, something that can only be done by those deemed “worthy” to lift it. Does the HYDRA reveal now mean Mjolnir considers a Nazi sleeper agent as worthy of lifting a god’s weapon?

Red Skull is using points raised by European Nationalists who are in a refugee/invasion crisis. Which is why it doesn't come off as a good condemning of that as it would otherwise. Because there is a real crisis going on an those opinions are front center of peoples minds and for some reason there appears to me no political middle ground on this issue.

So we don't have a hero giving a more moderate tone to what Red Skull says just the opposite saying "Its not a problem, shut up."

Yup. Its basically taking a pretty deliberate editorial and art direction at surface value.

Yes, boo people for not liking ugly things. Truly they have ruined modern comics.

Moongirl and Devil Dinosaur pulls off a similar style with way better results. Even if the overall style is intentional that doesn't really excuse the extremely poorly drawn faces which actually hurt the quality of the comic due to their inability to carry the story through.

THIS on the other hand... what? What? Are you saying Squirrel Girl shouldn't be cute in the game? Because she's been drawn cute before. She's been drawn cute a whole hell of a lot more often than she's been drawn ugly. Furthermore her comic where she IS drawn ugly doesn't exactly sell well, so if you were thinking it was going to be the "definitive take" on the character than I think you need a reality check, bucko.

You mean her original appearance as drawn by Steve Ditko?

Among its target demographic (women and younger audiences), it's selling better than just about anything that isn't manga.

oh yes, what a sales powerhouse. It's giving Hyperion and Web Warriors a real run for its money. Admittedly it is selling better than Patsy Walker Hellcat, for whatever that's worth.

For me it's not about Squirrel Girl being cute or ugly, it's about EVERYONE in that book being ugly. The writing is the main selling point for it, unfortunately it's also the ONLY selling point because of the art.

Those figures have nothing to do with my statement, since they're recording all purchases rather than purchases by women and youths.

For what it's worth the next issue of Squirrel Girl has a guest artist who sticks to the same general style of the main artist, including Doreen's "nonconventional" looks, but it it's enough to make it look miles better.

Doctor Octopus is dead and/or a robot right now, though.

Feels like Marvel wants to do similar with Peter and Miles as DC has tried to setup between Ted and Jaime and just fade Peter into a more mentor role. Problem with that it doesn't matter how fond you are of your new pet people still know Spider-Man as Peter Parker. Not Miles.

They've pushed that kid into so many places and I've not see much a response other than "oh its Miles."

In the Ms.Marvel comics they looked to give him a more SCIENCE bent that they usually only touch with peter every one in a blue moon. That could be his thing if he'd ever be written well and consistently.
