@Mole, well reading the most recents from Marvel, I feel I have no life actually. 😂
1. Teen Heroes. 'Nuff said.
2. Ignoring this holy testament:
3. Continuity/canon ignorance.
4. Not letting the heroes finally kill villains like carnage
@Eon I feel the same but we can't let them know that they are right.
The misconception that you have to be a comic book historian and understand every shred of continuity to enjoy comics. Another is the out-dated idea that only kids read the "funny books" and that comic books, as a medium, are incapable of telling thought-provoking stories with depth.
Yea you always see the kids hanging our and reading Carnages newest blood orgy
Strong is dumb.
Antithetical to is evil.
Criminals never have a point.
Cops are good guys, for the most part.
Some kids don't deeply understand comics.
This one is part stereotype/ part ignorance between MCU exclusive fans.
Side note: nothing wrong with MCU fandom and most fans are fine.
The EXTREME MCU fans think that knowing the movies really well make them experts on the comics because they think it’s identical to the source material. If they meet someone else who knows it as well as them, they think each other are experts, which is the stereotype.
THEN, the extreme MCU fans will argue with comic readers about the validity of the reader’s knowledge on the comics that they never read. Like, they will AGGRESSIVELY try to tell readers how the comics are, based solely on their love of the MCU.
The stereotype is between MCU extremists thinking that they and the others are comic experts.
Not sure how they can think that 😂
For me it’s “comics are for children” which I have to do is good to know the kids can read series like bomb queen, preacher, Marvel’s MAX series, marvel zombies, death of a family (joker beating the shit out of Jason was a lot ) , spread, Crossed
It bothers me that the movies have muddled the characters up, and made events and origins less interesting. The example that comes to mind is the Civil War movie. The comic event had a lot of depth and nuance, where the movie felt boring and superficial to me. A few people I knew had a lot to say about the movie, and when asked about it, I just couldn't connect. To me, the point of it wasn't that interesting, and the things that made the comic event matter were taken out of the movie, so the only similarities were the fact that superheroes fought, and it focused on a disagreement between Iron Man and Capt America. So yeah, some of the movies I feel give an ersatz explanation of what Marvel can be.
What do you think?
