Dan Slott, Marvel’s impotent ideologue, needs big brother Nicieza to fight battles

Imagine a moment in time where Marvel writer Dan Slott was interacting with a friend — perhaps someone of Jewish or Islamic faith — and he said that not even King David or Allah could convince him of the following: Former President Obama failed the American people.

Got it? Now imagine that yours truly made a joke about said left-wing ideologue, which required me to call the religious figures mentioned a “cuck.”

Question: How would Dan Slott react to my joke?

May conservative guys like myself make fun of Jewish and Islamic ideologues of a left-wing persuasion, or is there are hypocritical double standard?

Can I make fun of Muslim left-wing ideologues with the same ease displayed by Dan Slott’s feminist crush as she refers to Jesus Christ as a “cuck”?

You tell me, dear reader. Let me know what you think, and then watch my latest YouTube video. I think you’ll find Mr. Slott’s latest attack on your friendly neighborhood blogger quite telling.

Dan Slott acts like online psycho, anti-Christian bigot: Will Marvel step in?

Sometimes Marvel write Dan Slott tells Christians to go to “Christ-Land” after they win supreme court cases. Sometimes Marvel writer Dan Slott mocks prayer after terror attacks with “God isn’t fixing this” Twitter re-tweets. And sometimes Marvel writer Dan Slott mocks serious prayers by yours truly when he knows deep down that he would never do that to a Muslim comic book critic.

Check out my latest YouTube video if you want to see just how low modern Marvel Comics has fallen. Then ask yourself the following question: When will Disney step in?

BONUS: When all else fails and Marvel writer Dan Slott doesn’t know what to do about my videos, he goes back to his tried and true option — he lies.

 

Marvel’s Tom Brevoort and ideologue pals blame “toxic” fans for comic woes; hypocrisy exposed on YouTube

Tom B toxic

Thoughts become words. Words become actions. Actions become habits. Habits become character, and character becomes destiny.

Therefore, it’s incredibly sad that Marvel’s Tom Brevoort and his activist friends make a habit of lying — to themselves, to fans, and anyone else who is willing to listen.

The House of Ideologues has attempted (and failed) for months to defame YouTube creators who are exposing its hypocrisy, and the latest effort involves blaming “toxic fandom.” It’s not going to work because, as my latest YouTube video demonstrates, the partisan propaganda spewed by Marvel’s writers and editors can always be juxtaposed with their laughable moral grandstanding.

Marvel God Complex: Dan Slott says fans don’t know what they ‘need’

Some people are saying that “Comics Gate” is upon us. Others say that we’re in a “comic book culture war.” Whatever you decide, the bottom line is that Marvel writer Dan Slott gives bloggers and YouTuber creators like yours truly plenty of material to work with on a weekly basis.

If you want to know why Marvel Comics is struggling these days, then look no further than Mr. Slott’s stance on the “job of the artist,” which he shares with Alan Moore.

Both men believe “it is the job of the artists to give the audience what they need (emphasis mine).

Dan Slott Twitter role of artist

Ask yourself, though: Is that true? Do artists decide what you “need,” or is that the position of men with seriously bizarre god complexes? Check out my latest YouTube video on the proper role of the artist, and then sound off in the comments section below.

This topic lit up YouTube, Twitter, and writer Roger McKenzie’s Facebook page this weekend, so I’d like to hear what you think.

Editor’s Note: When backed into a corner, Dan’s go-to option is to look for the “Stan Lee escape hatch,” even if the damage control is painfully obvious.

Dan Slott projects with ‘deceptive,’ ‘amoral’ charges after unprofessional past comes back to haunt him

One of the strangest things about covering the comic book industry — on this blog, YouTube, and Twitter — is the way that Marvel employees define words like ‘dishonest,’ “amoral,” and ‘deceptive.’ It is apparently an underhanded move to take screenshots of things Marvel employees say and then juxtapose them with an argument about why those actions were unprofessional or, ironically, deceptive.

Take our old friend Dan Slott, for instance. Marvel’s scribe on The Amazing Spider-Man recently admitted on CBR’s message boards that he once pretended to be another user, which had the practical effect of making that man’s life miserable for weeks.

  • The individual was harassed online.
  • People who felt as though he lied about his identity lashed out at him.
  • His wife had to create an account to beg Mr. Slott to “fix” the problem.
  • Old online friends still refused to believe that he wasn’t the Marvel writer after Mr. Slott intervened.

Your friendly neighborhood blogger and YouTuber created a video on the whole ordeal — complete with screenshots and links to the original exchange — and literally told people to read it all to judge for themselves.

My conclusion: No professional writer would ever pull a “gag” on a total stranger like that (it could have been a child or a person with mental problems), particularly when said professional admits that he receives threats worthy of the NYPD’s attention.

Mr. Slott’s reaction was to go into his original comment and lambaste me as an “amoral” and “deceptive” blogger.

Doug Tweet

Interestingly enough, it was Mr. Slott who blamed “deranged Paul Reveres” for causing his victim problems. Why is that interesting, you ask? Because it was just last week that yours truly created a video titled Marvel Takes Aim at Paul Reveres: King Alsono, redcoats must go.

Yes, Mr. Slott — the guy who calls me “deceptive” — literally found a way to watch my videos and then link me and my subscribers to the fallout from his bad decisions roughly ten years ago.

CBR’s Mr. Mets then decided that my video, which was germane to the topic at hand, had to be deleted because the person sharing it did not explain his actions.

The Orwellian moderator said: “If you link to a video you need to include your thoughts on it as well. Otherwise the conclusion is that you endorse all of it,” (emphasis mine).

Mr Mets

Got that? Unless a man clarifies his position with left-wing ideologues before sharing my on-topic videos, then they must be deleted.

Question: How would Mr. Mets deal with me posting my own videos since it is self-evident that I “endorse all” of my work?

Anyway, for the full rundown of the latest unprofessional behavior by Marvel’s primary Spider-Man scribe, check out my new video.

If you want a one-hour bonus broadcast of me responding to Diversity & Comics’ take on the whole situation, then you’re in luck!

As always, when you’re all up to speed then feel free to add your two cents in the comments section below. I’d love to hear your reactions.

Marvel takes aim at Paul Reveres: King Alonso, redcoats must go

Regular readers of this blog know that I have chronicled the problems within the comic book industry for many years. Therefore, I hope I’m seen as a credible witness when I say that that things are nearing a breaking point.

The insertion of ham-fisted partisan politics into the books, unprofessional online behavior by creators, and mainstream comic websites that shill for the industry have contributed to a bubble that appears ready to burst. Sales continue to plummet and writers regularly lash out at YouTube creators like Capn. Cummings, Diversity & Comics, yours truly, and many others.

Marvel’s Slotto Blocktavius melds with Judge Dredd, hurts sales and industry

It was just one year ago that I made the leap to YouTube and began a channel with the intention of providing honest reviews of comic books and the industry at large. I met up with a small group of individuals who sought to counter the Marvel-approved content that was published by mainstream websites, and before long we started to gain traction.

I knew it was only a matter of time before our collective efforts struck a nerve, and July seemed to be the first of many industry-wide screams by its ideologues.

My latest YouTube review covers the reaction by Dan Slott of The Amazing Spider-Man to guys like Diversity & Comics and Captain Cummings. His obsessive blocking of fans and critics on social media has even earned him a new nickname: Slotto Octavius.

Tune in for all the details on Slotto Octavius, the decision to liken his efforts to Judge Dredd, and the Twitter hashtag #BlockedByDanSlott. As always, feel free to sound off in the comments section below. I’m always eager to hear what you have to say.

Editor’s Note: I’d like to say a big thanks to Mr. Dystopian for the artistic compliment below!

Kaare Andrews, Marvel’s iron-fisted censorship goon, is ‘SJW 4 Life’ in SJW-13 gang

There used to be a great show called Get Smart that aired in the 1960s. I used to watch reruns as a kid, and I think it’s safe to say that I had a crush Barbara Feldon… Regardless, there was a running joke where the main character, a spy named Max, would attempt to use “the cone of silence” with his boss. It never worked, and they had to abandon the device to just talk to each other like normal people.

The point of this tale is that writers and artists at Marvel Comics want their own “Cone of Silence,” and they will go to great lengths to create it. This cone requires censoring voices that don’t agree with their partisan politics, and doing so in petty ways.

Check out my latest YouTube video for the full rundown, and as always let me know what you think in the comments section below.

Editor’s Note: Regular readers may also smile when they receive a blast from the past regarding writer Dan Slott’s weird threats of legal action against me over at ComicVine.

Amazing Spider-Man #29: Dan Slott’s infantile hero needs Mommy Marconi

Question: What happens when a comic book has strong art, strikes the right tone and nails the pacing, but the author’s fundamental understanding of the main character is flawed?

Answer: The world gets something along the lines of The Amazing Spider-Man #29, Marvel’s Secret Empire tie-in featuring the collapse of Parker Industries.

As this blog has demonstrated for years, writer Dan Slott often emasculates Peter Parker as a means of elevating female characters (some created by the author) in his sphere of influence. ASM #29 further solidifies that case, as the hero — an intelligent grown man — is treated like an irresponsible teenager by Anna Maria Marconi. She, another near-perfect woman in his life, scowls and wags her finger at him like an overbearing mother. She sparks epiphanies that he — an intelligent grown man — should have realized on his own months ago.

A Homer Simpson-ized version of Peter Parker also appears in scenes with the villain,  Doctor Octopus, but for more on that I will direct you to my latest YouTube video.

As always, I’m interested in hearing your thoughts in the comments section below.

Spider-Man #27: Ends justify the means in Dan Slott’s ‘Private War’

Question: What do you get when you take 3/4 of a cup of “ends justify the means” and 1/4 of a cup of “moral relativism” and mix it in a bowl with one serving of Peter Parker and a bag of goblins?

Answer: The Amazing Spider-Man #27.

My new YouTube review details how “A Private War” is a sterling example of what happens when every character in a comic adopts a “might makes right” mentality. It’s hard to root for any character — including the protagonist — when a properly functioning moral compass is nowhere to be found. The heroes in ASM are whomever Dan Slott says are heroes, even if their idea of justice is defined as, “Whatever I want to do at any given moment.”

Check out the video below and be sure to ask yourself the following question: Would Spider-Man really make a moral equivalency between his personal vendetta against Norman Osborn and  Captain America fighting with the Allied Powers during World War II?

I say “no.”
