Iron Man now black girl

Magically smarter than a white man twice her age captured by terrorists.

dean that's enough no more internet laptop shut no no no nuhuh supernatural

But the plot to bring her in is grasping at straws, technically she steals the suit.
Why do I get the feeling they’re raping the genderbent tag on tumblr for plots?

It’s like black Hermione but instead of blackfacing the magic character it’s the IFLS ‘magic’ of space memes.

Don’t they get offended by the tokenism?
That they need the cultural welfarism of pinching famous white characters?

Tony is a whore. He isn’t a nice character. An alcoholic, compulsive lying, drug-taking, sex-tape making whore.

I know what the core fanbase will do. The one that put up with making Fury black, with making Spiderman black, with making Ms Marvel Muslim etc etc.

They’re taking their most famous property and ruining everything about him for a quick buck. The original fans won’t stick with it. Iron Man became the most popular character in the lineup because he’s a white man. It’s easy to project onto him. Is it too soon to call Disney’s decline? I don’t think so.

Geek/comic stuff isn’t cool anymore, it’s too mainstream; it’s slowly slipping out of focus for fantasy.*

I think this is the SJW Entryism event horizon for Marvel. How can anyone take them seriously after this, as if Rescue bossing around her boss and lover wasn’t humiliating enough? Kirby would be spinning, you could power a Tesla off that thing.

*Proof, you say?

They’re riding the comic gravy train because they’ve run out of ideas.
A lot of it is based on merchandise, they used to be limited to children but now grown adults are buying up toys like kids.
Adjusted for inflation, most of their biggest successes are behind them. Originally, Iron Man was the big winner with adults but now Avengers tops the list and they’ve never been able to top it.
Who’s the main character of both films?
Keeping up with the pace is a full-time job, it’s too much.
The death knell is that the original, cool people aren’t going to SDCC anymore. Pause and think about the implications. It was commercial before, at this point it’s a massive toystore. Hipsters hate everything about what these conventions have become and they dictate what is fresh, not the TV/films/ad people.
The type of people who go to these things nowadays are tumblrinas who think it’s okay to show actors gay porn and start groping them. The little kids with parents get a pass. If it were exclusive, it’d be more intimate, quiet and like the pre-screened check-in at the airport with virtually no lines. At this point it’s a club everyone has discovered, I’ve held my tongue for a while but all the worthy people (not there for attention) mentally checked out a few years ago. You go there now if you make more money than it costs, but it’s an endurance, not a pleasure.
“Even if I do get in for free, I don’t want to go anymore. It’s too crowded and too frustrating. It’s not fun anymore,
and that’s fine.”
Sign of the times? Comics themselves are effectively worthless, as we all knew deep, deep down.
Trends are not an investment. Wine, real artwork and property are an investment, people will always need those things.
“But there just aren’t any buyers anymore.”
It would be funny if it weren’t sad. They bought the tulips. That’s why comic sales have dropped the past few years, people weren’t buying them to read them.
“A recent piece on the Wall Street Journal’s MarketWatch website was especially enthusiastic about comics as an investment strategy, calling them “more predictable than stocks” and “recession-proof.” Old comics, the author suggested, could even save your home from foreclosure.’
oh no oh dear hides facepalm double
Can you say bubble? If everyone tells you to do it, the strategy is dead.
““We’re seeing the worst falloff of Marvel and DC sales in the store’s 38-year history.
Both companies are losing established readers who no longer feel that the company’s output reflects the sort of comics they enjoy….As recently as five years ago, there were no Marvel Universe titles that sold in the single digits for us. …The most disturbing trend involves established readers who have sufficient disposable income that they can afford to buy what they like to read. …When a dedicated DC customer who was buying EVERY New 52 title in 2011 and 2012 is now buying no DC titles, or a dedicated Avengers/Captain America/Iron Man/Thor customer has dropped all of these series, it’s troubling.”

Not that I think DC is doing any better. New 52, really?
Retconning the backlog people loved? The USP? For real?

Link: Comics and the dismal economics of Gamergate

Yeah we all know it’s a loss leader for good PR, they haven’t realized the SJWs hate them yet. #SJWsAlwaysLie These people hate adventure and don’t have kids (no park visits).

I think it matters for cultural reasons but I’ve never seen it as a long-term trend for economic reasons, they will run of novelty and niches, like the X-men ran out of cool powers. How many non-White comic fans v. White? Exactly. It’s a stereo-typically White male thing for good reason. It’s a rare outlet. It’s the principle, dammit.

It's like going through the stages of grief for a world that only existed in our dreams

Pop culture is supposed to serve the market, not politics. We’ve grown up with these stories and instead of killing the characters, they’re slowly torturing them beyond recognition while using the brand name *side-eye to James Bond* until it becomes a hollow cashgrab that insults the customer.

JUST WALK AWAY IT crowd leave go now run away

The SJWs want it, it has strategic import, which means we must defend it. Video games and SFF/comics are the last artforms they haven’t fully infected, and if you want to read or play the equivalent of a crucifix in a barbwire jar of urine, I don’t know what to tell you. It’s about preserving the spirit of gaming and fun from the Fun Police for future generations, it’s about stepping up, foot down in the Culture War. Most of their ire comes from the fact that white normal boys still have role models to look up to, they hate the fact the White Man is the Good Guy. I’ve written about Superman as the poster-child of this phenomenon before.

haters gonna hate lol iron man tony stark

Video: The hate for Superman shows what is wrong with people today

It’s actually accurate. Broken clock, y’know.

We refuse that an All-American hero could be a heterosexual, white male. Who is good, kind, honest, popular and super-strong etc. He’s essentially The Man in human/alien form. Not only do people fail to respect the masculine anymore, but we actively feel pressure to mock him or call the dude who can shoot frickin’ laser beams out of his eyes as unrealistic – not because he’s bulletproof or went from leaping small distances to flying, but because he is a GOOD, POWERFUL WHITE MAN.

The notion of a Good Powerful White Man is the alien here.

shock horror wtf omg no denial signs

There’s the reason Lex Luthor hates him too, it doesn’t get airtime anymore.

He is the reminder that humans are not equal. Some will always be smarter, stronger or better looking. Or just, all-around better people, that’s right – Superman is a better man, than actual human men. Depowered, he would still remain a good person. His power doesn’t corrupt him because he makes the choice to be good. That’s why people can’t stand him, he shows up modern character flaws – namely, most people in this century don’t have any.

Basically, messed-up Millennials see him as that Aryan Hitler mould, since he’s naturally an Ubermensch despite how he was used in Allied propaganda. And he isn’t even blonde.


“yet each man kills the thing he loves”

We’ve had a black Spiderman.
A Muslim Ms Marvel.
Archie is sacrificing himself for a gay guy.
We’re getting a female Thor, flying in the face of a real religion (isn’t that offensive?)
and a black Captain America.

Yeah, geek culture is rapidly de-cooling. What these feminazis don’t realize with their controlling behaviour, they are pushing out the very people, the real, genuine, Original fans, who made these things cool in the first place. At LFCC, I don’t know any real fans who went this year. I stayed away, and I know one girl who showed up, saw the number of fake hipsters forming a massive queue and decided not to bother. Like a real geek, she didn’t wanna be jostled by that many people, no matter what it was.
5 years would be a stretch for how much longer this can continue, and certain films are gonna bomb at the BO, catastrophically for the movie companies stupidly trusting the SJWPBS they read on Tumblr. They couldn’t just do a Black Widow movie and a Black Panther and see how those did. They had to fuck with the formula and characters the best part of a century old.

If they ‘win’, and geek culture is ruined (I’m not reading Thor anymore for example they could’ve used Sif), hopefully it’ll show up what these people are like. You can’t have your own subculture, they’ll take it away from you. You can’t have your own characters, unless they fit their ugly moulds for the sake of percentages over art. The fascists have crossed over into fiction, and I believe this will ruin the case for feminism for the rest of this century with young people (who love our fandom). Their urge to control normal people and what we choose to patronize or consume always poisons them. Expect the backfire.
