    His criticisms are extremely harsh, and feel biased to me. He interprets every scene that is remotely ambiguous in the harshest way imaginable.

    That said, the book is a failure, but it's not because Riri is an inherently failed character. Rather, it's because they utterly refuse to tie anyone to the railroad tracks.

    It's impossible to care whether Riri wins or loses, because she is never trying to protect anyone. She just sort of gets into fights randomly. So it never feels like there are any stakes. It's like, if Riri loses, then what? Then nothing in particular. This book desperately needs Riri standing between a villain and a little pigtailed girl holding a puppy or something, and it never happens.


Feels less biased than Marvel editorials and writers blaming the fans for everything. Less biased then the word contortions their PR does to pat themselves on the back. Nice to see some in your face Marvel views calling them on their elitist comments imo.

And she's a massively flawed Mary Sue...I find her actually funny and enjoyable with this guys comments. ;P

I've seen a few of this guys videos, and I think he's pretty much on point. His video on how to spot an SJW comic hits the mark, and fits Riri Williams to a tee.

1) Character needs/gets constant self validation/praise

2) Each issue is a lecture

3) Writers treat characters as empty generic vessels which they fill with their own politics.

4) SJW comics arent comics, they are vehicles for politics.

5) Characters are described using census traits. 'Brown and gay' does not describe a person - those are census traits that superficially descibe tens of thousands of people.

6) There are no good SJW stories. There is not a single SJW storyline that will be considered a classic in the way people think of things like Dark Pheonix Saga as a classic.
