What was shitty about Ultron in the comics? I can't remember everything, but i quite liked that arc.
I mean it’s whatever if you liked age of ultron but the event itself was poorly paced, poorly conceptualized, took too long, the premise skipped and went to some alternate future for no ding dang reason, and was ultimately pointless because it was all voided by the ending. the tie-in comics were miles ahead in terms of quality and emotional depth, and even they were kind of boring. the first issue’s ending visual of captain america huddled with a broken shield was intense, but after that it just slid downhill. there was never any emotional connection to what was happening in the story, and when characters started dying it was obvious it would all be retconned before the event even ended, which it was, so what was the point? trick question, there was literally no point to age of ultron.
also evil cyborg future tony wasn’t hot at all, what is the point of making tony an evil cyborg dictator if he’s not hot?????
I wonder if they think "the kids" like Dennis Hopeless because he's mentioned social issues once or twice; like maybe marvel can point at Remender and Hopeless and say "they're white dudes but they CARE about this stuff look at their work" despite the fact that Avengers Arena/Undercover/Cable and X-Force/Uncanny Avengers/DimensionZ/Iron Nail really prove that these guys should absolutely not be talking about this stuff using the mouths of characters of color/female characters/lgbtq+ characters
I honestly don’t think they give a shit about this at all. I don’t think they considered it, I don’t think any of the top editors/execs at marvel think about it, really. like I am a cynical bastard of a human but I think I’m justified in not giving comics execs the benefit of the doubt when it comes to social justice issues
I thought I was done being angry about comics I’ll never stop being angry about comics I’ll be an old woman surrounded by my 57 dogs and I’ll be like “age of ultron. what a shitty event. I can’t believe they used that for the avengers sequel” and then I’ll die
while you're at it is it really hard to find a female writer to write female thor?? no but does marvel care
while I like jason aaron’s writing over rick remender’s, yeah. it is false progress if you make big sweeping statements about how your new cap is black and your new thor is a lady if you continue to have the exact same white dude writers on the titles.
I know that there aren’t as many non-white dude creators in the industry, but there’s a reason for that? it’s not just like…a weird coincidence that you look around and all you see are white dudes and no one sees a problem with it. and it’s really disturbing that they aren’t taking the opportunity to put a spotlight on non-white dude creators right now to show how ~inclusive~ they are. at least make noises about it, even if you don’t follow through. seriously who are marvel’s PR people they are really falling down on the job here
marvel is it really that hard to find a black writer for falcon cap

In the major announcement of the panel, a special infinite comic called All-New Captain America: Fear Him is coming this fall (see the art in the story and above). The infinite book is by Dennis Hopeless and Szymon Kudranski, coming in six digital issues in October 2014.
I'm just curious but what kind of moral dilemmas about teenagers becoming superheroes?
ok I could just post a series of panels from a death in the family, but I guess I’ll go into more detail because I’m nice like that.
Happy Birthday Lynda Carter (July 24, 1951)
"Wonder Woman really is a phenomenon unto herself, the show and the character really has a life of its’ own. She represented, uh, hope, I think, for young women, and she also represented for young men, mind you, which I get a lot of mail on, the type of, like the perfect woman, one that could be beautiful and smart and fun and strong."
