    People hate Whedon because apparently he's a racist rapist; http://users.livejournal.com/_allecto_/34718.html

    Seen a couple complaints about how snarky some characters are in this, how everyone always has a retort, that sort of thing. But I only really noticed it with Tony - and that's always been a big part of his character, so eh.

    That is one heck of an article.

    I've never actually watched Firefly, but I find it very troublesome when a person's feminism is so deeply tied to sex-negativity, as it appears to do with that writer.

    I don't like how he has killed characters in the past just to push the story forward or make the characters react to something.

    Hell he even did it when he was brought in to work on Speed, with Jeff Daniels' character!

    I appear to be turning into a person who wants everyone to have lots of fun happy healthy sex and also have lots of fun happy healthy endings where everybody hugs except the bad guy

    Who eventually finds fun happy healthy sex and hugs, too

    Now if you excuse me I am going to go watch The Goonies

    the whole concept of Cap seems like the most ridiculous patriotic bullshit until you actually sit down and read some of his comics and then it turns out to be great

    the secret is, he's actually not that patriotic? like he's proud of america and he believes in what it stands but he would be the first to admit that the country's got problems and you could have a very reasonable conversation with him on the subject

    I have become increasingly interested in examining Joss Whedon’s work from a feminist perspective since I had a conversation with another lesbian feminist sister at the International Feminist Summit about whether Joss was a feminist.

    this is an amazing sentence

    Well, I wouldn't say he's not PATRIOTIC, just not JINGOISTIC. But I agree with you 100%, Cap's real appeal comes from the fact that he refuses to be a mindless symbol, no matter how much he looks like one.

  • Grey GhostGrey Ghost Okay... This looks bad.Registered User regular
    Yeah I think Cap's views on his country actually constitute true patriotism as opposed to jingoism

    Hey, remember that time Captain America exposed Nixon's secret plot to take over the country with a flying saucer? Because that happened.

    Steve Englehart later said that he self-censored in that story. He wasn't sure that Marvel would let him specifically name Nixon, so didn't try to do so, but then thought afterwards that they probably would have. Interesting stuff, that's for sure.

    Next, the Skull uses the Cube to rewrite the past and remove the years Wilson had spent angrily living as "Snap". In this new history, Wilson was an upright and cheerful social worker who is eventually lured to the Exiles' island and organizes the natives to fight for their freedom.

    Why the fuck would Red Skull make a dude more likely to become a superhero?

    “Marvel told me years back this is one movie they didn’t think they could do.

    “They were worried it would be a sensory overload having six, seven or eight different, very distinct, characters with their own unique back-story all coming together.

    “The fear was that would be too complicated.

    “But Marvel Studios boss Kevin Fiege was a big fan of my Avengers books and told me it made him realise an Avengers movie could actually be a lot simpler than he’d thought.

    “So they used book one and the ending to book two as the template for the movie, which is enormously flattering.”

    Remember guys, if anything remotely comic related is popular, it's because of Mark Millar!

    Doing my own movie re-run of the Avengers universe.

    It's funny how much more I like Captain America, Thor and Iron Man than all the X-Men and other B-listers put together. Mostly because, while they deal with serious stuff, they seem to enjoy being heroes most of the time, albiet for different reasons. None of this WHY CAN'T I BE NORMAL? Crap.

    Rogers is just a nice guy trying to make the world a better place.
    Tony is a loveable asshole who loves showing off but secretly cares.
    Thor has got the whole noble warrior thing going on and loves a good brawl.

    Spider Man is okay, but the films weren't on the same level as the ones I listed above.
    Spoiler:

    Best action scenes in the lead up films IMO:

    Ironman's rampage against the Ten Rings in Golmera and following dogfight.
    Captain America kicking down Hydra's front door by himself.
    Thor vs. the Frost Giants.

    Pretty much

    actually no, Superior was good, recently

    other than Superior, however, if Mark Millar gave up writing forever and his works were retroactively deleted from existence, I'd be entirely happy with that.

    Who? Like, can someone give examples of his assholery (I love certain Marvel movies but I don't follow the comics much)?

  • SolarSolar Registered User regular
    Old Man Logan was okay

    except oh yeah remember the part where Bruce Banner bragged about raping She-Hulk to death

    yeah that was great

    I don't care for Red Son much either, though I accept that others like it

    so okay, you have Red Son, Superior and 1985 (which I haven't read but will accept your premise that it is good)

    and then against that, you have everything else he has written, a lot of which ended up being really influential and fucked the Ultimate line over for years.

    seems like a good trade to me

    Red Skull's the kind of guy who motivates anyone to want to kick his ass. Even Magneto and Doom hate his guts.
