I have started reading Multiversity and beside the fact, that the Multiverse appears to be under attack, I have no idea whats going on.
This annotated guide for each issue helped me. It's a really amazing series.
Is their a family more convuluted than Hank Pym's in comics. Someone could probably write a pretty lengthy run just using characters that are around because of Hank.
Hank Pym's family web is famously large, but for convoluted, I have to give it to Team Summers-Grey
Like, if Teen!Cyclops and Nadia got together I'm pretty sure 10 different Kang's would show up to put a stop to it before things get even more confusing.
Of course he is a hypocrite.Pym technically appearently a son with Tigra. Only technically because the father is a Super-skrull with pym's dna.
Kang would be a hypocrite considering he has at least as convoluted history and is a Richards.
Issues of SJW in marvel.Purely for attention
Three different children from different time lines, one of them being from a clone of Jean Gray sent to the future. A clone from one these children also from the future.
Technically connected to alien royalty due to long lost brother that was genetically aged up.
An adopted granddaughter that was supposed to be the messiah.
Also an alien stepmom married to a space pirate father of the summers
It's a weird family
I'm reading the new Spider-Gwen and they refer to the main Marvel U in this issue as Earth-616. Interesting...has this happened since Secret Wars? I can't remember...I thought they were going to try to avoid that label
No Man's Land, the novel: better than No Man's Land, the comics
Best novelization of a comic book story.
I wouldn't go quite that far. I thought the No Man's Land story arc in comics was very good indeed.
The book is written by legendary badass Greg Rucka though, so it was always going to be awesome.
It's that super toxic geek culture. Comics have a very strong fanbase comprised of old white dudes who want everything to be the same, but different. But not too different, so it's still the same.Issues of SJW in marvel.Purely for attention
So here's what happened. I was searching for some information on youtube about the upcoming X-men comics, and stumpled onto a video that started off perfectly fine going through the upcoming series, but then veered off into anti SJW sentiments once he started talking about the Iceman series. I felt this came kinda out of nowhere since it went from from a perfectly fine video, to the narrator litterally groaning about the comic tackling the newfound gay nature of Iceman.
So I did some googling, and apparently it's not hard to find this kind of talk in relation to comics, especially Marvel. So I'm sitting here wondering if there's a widespread feeling that publications like Marvel are kinda jamming "SJW" issues into their new comics? Or is this more just the case of it being comic reader crossover of the gamergate crowd?
I mean personally, as someone who is reading through marvels stuff chronologically, and still only gotten to around year 2009/2010 (started reading stuff just post civil war), I can't wait until I catch up to the newer series, they seem great for the most part, in fact one of the things I really like is that they've changed out a lot of the major characters and have less white dudes, and more everything else.
Also thisYou're talking about people who think basic human empathy is some marxist plot to destroy western civilization. To them Superman saying "being nice is good and racism is bad" is shoving an agenda down their throat. But comics have been dealing with social issues for a long long time, it's just that now there's communities built around feeling threatened by the mere existence of fictional gay people making noise.
