‘The series will span the entire universe and touch on the “glory days” of characters like Odinson, Squirrel Girl, Spider-Man, the Avengers, America Chavez, Iron Man, Moon Knight, the Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain Marvel, Luke Cage, the X-Men and many others.’
The politics of Marvel right now is too complicated for me to explain effectively in a short post, but fuck me this sounds shit.
I wonder if they want their own DC Rebirth? It sure doesn’t seem like it…
I can’t wait to see what great stories I can expect for America Chavez! Disregard the fact that her current run is actually fucking abysmal, she’s a fan favourite obviously and we need some more good stuff from her. I understand however that her current run is only two (?) issues in and there is a bunch of other stuff with her but I don’t care, the recent run is so painfully bad that I have no interest in giving the character a fair chance. Is that unfair? Probably, but oh well.
Listen up Marvel, think about this.
DC Rebirth is working so far because it was written to please the fans. I’m not saying that Marvel can’t write anything to please the fans and is just after the cash, but the Legacy thing seems a bit odd. Rebirth also came after a bunch of shit that divided people in the fan base, so a return to some of the older stuff was warmly welcomed. Probably the most important part is the fact that the writers did a good job. Put Bendis on bringing back PC Superman and writing about his family and I don’t think it would have been as good.
Really there’s a bunch of shit behind all this, too long for me to explain here. If you expect this to be a good reflection of Marvel and DC, well you’re an idiot. These are really just my opinions in a big jumbled shit storm of a post. But yeah next post will be positive, I promise.
