    The scene of Chris Evan ripping the log of firewood in to two at the farm in Avengers AoU looks so comical to me every time I see it because you immediately have to compare that action to his shoulders and muscles lol! and scream impossible (but then there a lot of impossible things in superhero movies ��)

    John Byrne still works in the industry. He mainly works with IDW. He mainly does stuff for Star Trek. SO lets end that false narrative.


    Nor do i care for alterations to an established character to fit a quota. Stan Lee wasn't for it. Neither am i.
    Where is your evidence to support this? Most of the time it was done is because certain comics book stores wouldn't order books with new characters ESPECIALLY POC no matter who the writer was. Not because they wouldn't sell but because the person on the cover wasn't straight white or male.
    Hope Larson has to deal with on Goldie Vance and that is why they went OGN and still got a movie deal.
    The Burnside Batgirl team also dealt with it doing Motor Crush.
    Chuck Dixon raised heck about it-in the 80s when he did Strike with Tom Lyle.
    Ben Aaronovitch-DR Who writer & creator of Rivers of London-ask HIM. He had to FIGHT with publishers because they kept trying to hide the fact the lead of his book is a black guy.
    I can name more.

    Stan didn't support it? Explain how Stan's last creation for Marvel was SHE HULK? What about Johnny Storm? Wasn't there a Human Torch before him?

    before you start complaining about cyborg you have a Blade/Black Panther/even static shock as you complained about had his own cartoon.
    Going by this logic-
    Storm fans need to can it because Moon Girl & Riri & Shuri have books. Along with Goldie Vance-who got a movie deal.

    That is not how it will EVER work.

    Cyborg fans have every right to be PISSED.
    Storm fans have every right to be FURIOUS.
    Duke Thomas fans have a right to be ANGRY.

    They REFUSE to settle for what Miles & the gang have done. They want to know why is that NOT being done with their favorites.

    They want to know why DC's "best" writer lacks the skills to offer a competent Duke Thomas in DC's flagship title known as Batman.
    They want to know why Storm has to be in Logan's bed or in a black male bashing Black Panther book to get development.
    They want to know why DC's top writers "CRAP" on Cyborg.
    They want to know WHY in order to read about a well done black character-it has to be at another company.

    Before you scream agenda-I am talking BUSINESS. Because what Dc won't do-OTHERS will. You don't send folks to competition. Yet DC is doing that.

    Yeah and? Name the last work of relevance in marvel or dc for byrne.

    One of the last interviews and or pieces stan lee had written or dictated for mentioned about keeping the CHARACTER,not the mantle of the alterego,the same.

    Talk business all you want. I stated my points and they haven't been wrong. Its my point of view vs yours. I dont claim yours to be wrong so don't come at me with your whining. This supposed to be a thread about minorities yet i only see you carrying the torch for one,and it sure as hell ain't mine.

    How many on the ultimates..blue marvel and monica rambeau....funny how none included any that Habla espanol.

    You do alot of crying for someone who is talking business. You worry about your stuff and i will deal with MY own group.

    Hahahaha,i left marvel because of agenda. Rather read stories then people telling me how to think. Modern marvel comic comes off as a dam episode of some 90's cw program.

    Check out Brigitte Goudz.
    You mean this character?






    With a few exceptions like Alex Ross, most depictions of Wonder Woman are closer to Gadot's body type than Goudz.

    Apparently the movie is out in china and their messageboards have gone very caveman on her looks. Recent article spoke about it. Some users have added this pic to point out body comparisons. Pretty brutalbrie_butt.jpg

    Yep, I would argue that some creative choices in some titles tends to reveal just where some creators biases are.

    Not to mention the whole "comicsgate" thing has exposed some of them (granted they are quite few but it's still revealing)

    Since you might not be up to speed on this one...

    BE CIVIL

    Treat everyone with civility, keep the snark to a minimum, and do not insult other people. We cannot stress that last part enough: DO NOT INSULT OTHER PEOPLE. Engaging in insulting behavior is a bannable offense, and not the kind you come back from. It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been here, whether you’re a newb or veteran, it will not be tolerated. Keep the example we mentioned in the Community Standards in mind; if you wouldn’t say it as a guest in someone else’s home, don’t say it here.

    I could be completely wrong but those pictures look photo shopped.

    I'm more concerned about the flat affect she had the whole time rather than Brie's appearance.

    It felt like she was phoning the whole thing in and didn't really care.

    Who cares what a random article in China says -- Marvel is focusing on that $$$.

    ----
    "Captain Marvel has made $760 million worldwide. $1 billion is in its sights."

    "Captain Marvel has 760 million reasons not to listen to trolls.

    After an explosive opening weekend at the box office that brought in $455 million worldwide, Captain Marvel continued to soar in week two: Marvel Studios’ first woman-led superhero movie made an estimated $69.3 million domestically and $120 million internationally in its second week in theaters. That brings its total to $266 million domestically and $760 million worldwide over two weekends.

    That means Captain Marvel has already outpaced the lifetime domestic box office hauls of many of its Marvel peers, including 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, 2016’s Doctor Strange, and 2018’s Ant-Man and the Wasp. It currently ranks as the 13th-most-successful Marvel movie in North America to date, and could easily move up the list.

    Captain Marvel’s box office success comes despite the efforts of online trolls who tried to sink the movie’s online audience scores with fake reviews and low ratings on sites like Rotten Tomatoes and IMDB. (Critically, the movie has been met with mostly positive reviews.)"
