Max Bemis of Moon Knight represents Marvel by telling fans: ‘I f***ing hate you’

Comic book fans know that Marvel Editor in Chief C.B. Cebulski has a slew of problems to deal with as he gets settled in his new job. Some issues are more complex than others. He will need to wisely pick and choose his battles.

One issue, however, that can be dealt with over night is the behavior of writers like Max “I f***ing you hate personally” Bemis.

Every normal company has a social media policy. Every normal company would fire an employ who told paying customers “I f***ing hate you.” Therefore, it makes absolutely no sense why Disney and Marvel turn a blind eye to the behavior of Mr. Bemis of Moon Knight.

Check out my new YouTube video for a rundown of the latest unprofessional turn by a Marvel writer. Feel free to contact Mr. Cebulski and Disney with screenshots of Mr. Bemis’ Twitter feed. Some of us would love to hear them explain how, exactly, this promotes the industry.

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.

Iron Man #593: Bendis dragged kicking and screaming to honor Tony Stark’s “Legacy”

Iron Man 593

It’s here — Marvel’s attempt to tackle the “Legacy” of Tony Stark, aka The Invincible Iron Man. There’s only one problem, my friends: Writer Brian Michael Michael Bendis really wanted to keep the main character dead (for all intents and purposes) for a long, long time. Those pesky fans got in Editor in Chief Axel Alonso’s way, and now everyone who wanted to crown Riri Williams “the” Iron Man must to pretend as if they’re not backtracking against their will.

My latest YouTube video covers The Search for Tony Stark: Part 1, although what’s really going on is a search for ways to placate Disney overlords while still undermining Tony Stark’s long-term credibility.

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’s Northrop mess: Confused and spineless a sad combo

New York Comic Con 2017 is over, but the After Action Report for Marvel Comics will not be a good one. Retailers exploded on the company behind closed doors early on, and then an event with defense contractor Northrop Grumman was cancelled on Saturday.

Ask yourself this question, though: Why did the outrage brigade not seem to care that a Planned Parenthood panel was held at NYCC, but a comic book designed to promote STEM fields generated enough anger to make Marvel buckle?

Mine NYCC

Here’s the deal: I don’t want anything political at a convention that is supposed to be focused on superheroes, but if comic industry pros are going to celebrate abortion providers, then a handful of angry fans on Twitter shouldn’t be able to end a Marvel/Northop team-up.

Check out my latest YouTube video for the full rundown. I experimented with a new format today, so feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below. I prefer scripted content whenever possible, but creating it can be very time consuming.

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.

Marvel’s Spider-Joke: Predictable Chip Zdarsky makes critics look like prognosticators

Your friendly neighborhood blogger does not make predictions very often, but when I do they tend to come true. Take, for instance, the time I predicted that “Spider-Rockets” would grace the pages of The Amazing Spider-Man and it came true within months. I took no glee in the development, but at the same time I am grateful to have it as a data point when people question my judgment on Spidey-related matters.

Sadly, we now have another instance of yours truly playing the role of the successful prognosticator when it comes to Marvel Comics. I said in June with the launch of Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man that there was a 75 percent chance he would wind up doing standup comedy with his mask on by issue 12.

Note: I was ahead of the game by eight issues.

Check out my video below for more on the damage that writer Chip Zdarsky is doing to Peter Parker’s credibility, and as always feel free to add your thoughts in the comments section below. It’s going to get worse before it gets better.

Update: It appears as though Diversity & Comics is finally coming around on ASM’s Dan Slott. That means it is now time for me to give him some good-natured mockery: Vindicated!

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.
