 MARVEL V.P. ADMITS POLITICAL
 CORRECTNESS KILLED COMIC SALES
 April 3, 2017 Daniel Greenfield 50
 526
 While the Marvel-Disney monster has been ruling the box office, Marvel Comics sales have been having serious
 issues. One obvious factor was trying to force political correctness on readers by replacing Peter Parker, Iron
 Man, etc with ridiculously politically correct "diverse" versions
 In a revelation that would surprise no one, comic book readers were not interested in a Muslim Ms. Marvel, a
 Latino Spider-Man who isn't Peter Parker or the Angela Davis version of Iron Man. And Marvel's VP of Sales
 made the mistake of admitting that.

<p>diversity in and of itself doesn’t kill comics, but pointless, endless reboots, massive events that rely on you keeping up with 12 given titles at any time, and constant, badly established legacy characters are why comics are failing</p>
<p>not to mention splitting up iconic superhero titles among more than one person at once</p>
<p>did you know there’s actually 3 people running around with the Wolverine codename at the moment?</p>
<p>Let’s take some examples:</p>
<p>Riri Williams popped up with no buildup after Tony Stark got murked, but he was apparently monitoring this 15 year old girl teen prodigy never mentioned before in his comics, entrusted with an AI based on his brain patterns and personality to mentor her.</p>
<p>You know, as compared to however fucking many characters they could’ve given his legacy to.</p>
<p>Also we’re supposed to believe someone as egotistical and self glorifying as Dr Doom would take on the identity of Iron Man?</p>
<p>Please.</p>
<p>It’s the same shit as Jane Foster as female Thor, with a healthy combination of plothole.</p>
<p>Somehow, a human woman who has not been involved with Thor in way, with a terminal disease that was ravaging her body, somehow ended up ON THE MOON without any protection and managed to pick up Mjolnr and was found Worthy by it after the fight where Thor ceased to be Worthy.</p>
<p>Like, you know, instead of Sif, a long time companion of Thor and who can pick up the hammer or Angela, who Marvel had then won a recent legal fight to be able to use….</p>
<p>People don’t dislike it because it’s “diversity”</p>
<p>They don’t like it because it’s weak, pandering writing that doesn’t stand up to internal logic.</p>
<p>Now, an example of this done right is when Sam Wilson, aka, the Falcon, became Captain America</p>
<p>for one thing, he was actually established as working closely with Steve Rogers for a long time in the comics before he was given the mantle. By Steve Rogers himself.</p>
<p>See, at this point, Rogers got rapidly aged cause his super serum stopped working and he was an old man, so he couldn’t do it any more, but he was still around to give Sam advice and support over comms.</p>
<p>But of course, until Marvel actually bothers to learn why people aren’t buying their shit, they’re gonna keep making the same mistakes, as long as they’re insulated by the losses of the MCU and being used by Disney as a vanity press, they’ll never learn and lose more ground to DC and the indies</p>
<p>EDIT: Also I totally forgot, unrecognizable new brands they try to create.</p>
<p>If your comic customers, as in the customers that go in and buy things, if they go “who’s this” and show you a comic, then they’re probably not gonna pick it up. They’re there to buy Spider-Man, Batman, Wolverine, X-Men, Avengers they can recognize, not fuckin Stardude or whatever odd new thing they’re gonna push is.</p>

To add icing onto the cake, my cousins who had lived with us for my entire life until this point, would be moving across the country, so a lot of change all at once for a 9 year ad just gotten my first gameboy (a wonderful present from my grandparents) and pokemon Blue My grandparents then decided to take my sister and l out on a cross country road trip (get us out of my parents hair and such, it was a good idea). The day before l left my cousin "borrowed" a link cable from her friend and we decided to trade favorites! T got her Haunter and she got my Blastoise. Imagine my surprise when it evolved after trading (we were pretty dumb and didn't know this was a thing yet) I'll never forget that Gengar. Sometimes it would feel like my cousin was still there, but not quite, almost like thnere was alwavs a ghost of her with me. Helping me through what was the hardest time of my young life. So many hours desperately trying to focus on anything but what was happening around me, through it all, I could look at that little purple sprite and remember thatl still nave family out there. miss you cuz TL:DR; Gengar is the best <p>Found on a thread about favourite Pokémon: via /r/wholesomememes <a href="https://ift.tt/2Ki6R72">https://ift.tt/2Ki6R72</a></p>

 My grandparents then decided to take my sister and
 l out on a cross country road trip (get us out of my

 before l left my cousin "borrowed" a link cable from
 her friend and we decided to trade favorites! T got

 I'll never forget that Gengar. Sometimes it would feel
 like my cousin was still there, but not quite, almost
 like thnere was alwavs a ghost of her with me. Helping
 me through what was the hardest time of my young
 life. So many hours desperately trying to focus on
 anything but what was happening around me,
 through it all, I could look at that little purple sprite
 and remember thatl still nave family out there.
