Marvel Comic's Mark Millar calls *all* gamers pedophiles!

LardLard Registered User new member
edited March 2007 in Graphic Violence
Mark Millar (the guy who wrote the *horrible* Civil War comic for Marvel, was discussing his future plans. He mentioned TV and games.

The quote is as follows: "Like all my pals, the TV and movie people have come calling and even the computer game people (which is weird because games are for pedos and I have no interest)."

Pedo, of course, being short for pedophile. Isn't it nice to label a whole section of people as pedophiles? Especially all the little kids who own the DS?

If he was joking, it wasn't funny.

If he was serious, then he's sick.

At the very *least* Mark Millar owes the gaming world an apology.

Hit Marvel where it hurts - don't buy their comics - and *don't buy their games*.

I would really, really like people do something about this - maybe a comic here on Penny Arcade?, because that jackass Millar needs to be taken to task and learn he can't mislabel people like that.

Original article here:

The quote is the second paragraph from the bottom.

    Given the large amount of people who play video games and hated Civil War, I doubt his word is packing punch with anyone these days.

    Yeah well Civil War was almost as bad as House of M and Avengers Disassembled.

    I think we're even now.

    Civil War was seven issues of nothing that also managed to ruin pretty much every major character in the MU who is not in a book starting with X or Runaways for the forseeable future.

    So it's a lot like House of M and Avengers Disassembled. Combined.

    But it did show us that a kid with a live journal and photoshop is capable of being better then a man Marvel hired to write a major comic event

    And not a little better, but way better.

    I can't find his actual forum post about it (may have been purged--this was a while ago), but here's the link to the youaredumb.net article on the matter.

    Fuck that noise. I don't give two shits what Millar thinks about gamers. I'll buy the shit i want to buy even if he specifically called me, by my first name, a cocksucking, donkey punching son of a slut. I'd just laugh and go buy the last issue of BKV's Dr. Strange: The Oath.

    Also, he's Scottish. What'd you expect?

    You know, it's funny all this complaining I hear about how crappy Civil War was, yet it seems like everybody's lining up for World War Hulk.

    I hope you either 'Byrne stole' the issues, or just got the gist from somebody online, because buying all seven issues and then coming online and complaining about it is kind of silly.

    Yes, I'm going to boycott all of Marvel's products because one of their many writers said something stupid about their desire to do certain work outside of Marvel. That's perfectly justified and makes sense, especially since Millar was being completely serious.

    Or, you know, you could lighten up. And, anyway, it's Wednesday and I am a Marvel fan, after all. No way in hell I boycott over something this little and stupid.

    When he dies, I hope they write "Worst Affirmative Action Hire, EVER" on his grave. His corpse should be trolled.

    Yeah, but he also wrote 'Ultimate War' so they kinda cancel each other out.


    Anyways, I really can't generate the passion to get mad over something this stupid and I'm sure John Bryne has said much worse.

    Yeah, I'm gonna start boycotting Marvel the day X-Factor comes out. Although, I will say that gamers seem to have enough of a stigma that adding pedophile to it can't be helpful... although that would explain all the children I hear crying in the background when I play Halo 2 over X-Box Live...

    British people tend to use a lot more offensive language than americans (hhmmm, stereotypes).

    The Scottish more so. Don't sweat it you cunts.

    I fucking hate it when groups of people DEMAND AN APOLOGY for something that someone said (edit: especially disjointed groups like fucking gamers). Oh no, did your feelings get hurt? Oh does the widdle baby need his mommy to make it all better?

    FUCK YOU, for ruining my society. Fuck you, for introducing the idea that people are not allowed to say what they want or mean. Fuck you for being a humorless cunt. Fuck you and the horse you rode in on. GET THE FUCK OUT!


    There, that was intended to to insult all those "P.C." people in groups demanding apologies for statements people said. I'll show you where you can find your damned apology.

    Seriously...

    And fuck that, if you have the freedom to say what you want, I have the freedom to be offended by it and demand an apology. If you don't want to apologize, fine, that's your prerogative. But in a modern society you need to learn that there are consequences for your actions.

    Granted, in this case I don't give a fuck... but if I did, I would damn sure say something about it.

    Anger management is just another one of those queer societal implementations designed to get in touch with a mans "feelings". Fuck that. If you want me to get in touch with my feelings give me a couple beers and I'll tell you what I really think about you and your fucking anger management.

    I usually don't like sticking my neck out unless I have something original to say, but <i>what a dick</i>.

    I don't expect an apology though. It's not like anyone will care, and it's not like he'll mean it.

    I would just like him to expand on his statement and expose his logic. I refuse to believe someone could just say something that stupid out of nowhere; he probably has a strange set of beliefs akin to Jewish-shadow-government conspiracy theories.

    What a dick.

    Just because a guy likes having a few beers every night doesn't make him an alcoholic. FUCKING CHRIST ON THE CROSS!!! Next thing you'll say that I'm "Unstable" and "Needs counseling" or some such shit.

    Sentry, you're right, you can demand an apology all you want, you have that right. Cry to the heavens in demand for some consolation for the harm that has befallen you. But, it won't do you any fucking good. If a man says something; makes some statement that might be offensive or outlandish, why should he apologize? Why would you make him? Is it because you (or whatever group of people) are offended? Or is it becuase you want him to publicly declare that he was wrong, thus embarrassing him and subjecting him to ridicule. Or, is it because you want some attention of your own? Either way, demanding an apology is just as offensive as the originating offensive comment, becuase you end up chilling future speech that may be "offensive", because people will be less likely to voice their opinions if they constantly need to say they're sorry to someone.

    Yeah, that is the price you pay for living in society. It's a part of that great social contract you signed at birth. If you want to break that contract, there are lovely backwoods cabins, Aryan brotherhoods, and militias that would love to make your acquaintance.

    If you want to be anti-social, prepare for the backlash... it's part of living in the world. Call it PC if you want, but frankly, I'm a big fan of mutual respect and, hey, maybe even a little compassion now and again.

    and because no one has said it yet:

    Oh, won't someone please think of the children!
