LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE ON THIS WEBSITE I HAVE AN OPINION ABOUT MARVEL COMICS… AND HERE IT IS
thor and captain america are not real people
the writers and artists creating the upcoming thor and captain america comics are all white men
i can’t actually criticize the comics because i’m pretty sure they haven’t even come out yet and i don’t really read any current mainstream comics at all right now anyways, so it’s not very likely i’ll pick it up when it actually does hit the stands. probably the closest i’ll come to reading these comics is reading the publicity releases i keep seeing on my dash about how great it is that Thor is a woman now and Captain America is a black man, but they are just marks on paper. They are products created to make more money for disney.
certainly there are worse things that could happen then a giant corporation attempting to appeal to consumer demographics other than white men, but there also infinitely better things too. how about more women and poc actually creating comics instead of just just being marketed to?
maybe this will turn out to be more than a crude gimmick, but we’re talking about a company (a whole industry) founded on crude gimmicks designed to get fourteen-year-olds’ allowance money, so somehow i doubt it.
thinkin’ it would be pretty cool if tumblr could criticize israel without referring to them as “nazis”
