    Uh, no, it reflects the collective opinion of critics who submit to Rotten Tomatoes. I've always found it telling that MCU apologists practically venerate RT, but not Metacritic solely on the fact...

    Did you seriously think I wrote that statement unaware of Aquaman's Chinese box office? :) Aquaman is about the best you can do within the confined framework of the Chinese market.

    Also I'm just going to say it; there are no billion dollar MCU films without the Chinese market and this is an audience that has, broadly speaking, advocates for annexation and authoritarianism. I...

    Captain Marvel had not been released on blue-ray and streaming platforms by the time Endgame game out. You had to watch the film in theatres to be fully up-to-date by the time Endgame rolled around.

    I mean this is the logic of most MCU fans; they swaddle themselves in RT scores and box office numbers so when a thread like this comes along they cannot comprehend how anyone could dislike the MCU....

    Giganta doesn't really have much of a publishing history despite being a somewhat famous villain. She first appeared in WW Vol 1 #9 which is one of the best Golden Age stories and then she appears in...

    I never said it 'negates' the success of the MCU Spiderman, just that its a more popular franchise and that it probably has a more popular version of Spiderman. There was clearly something about...
