Quote:My God, I can't believe anyone pays money to read this garbage. It's directed exclusively to 20 - 24 year olds, who hang out in nightclubs(while never getting a date), and think they know what 'cool' is.
Why would Marvel devote a comic exclusively to such a tiny demographic? Oh, you're wrong.
Do you think there's anything about contemporary comics that would appeal to, or even be understood, by children? I started reading Marvel when I was 8-years-old. Comics back then didn't have conversations between the male heroes about which female heroes they slept with. They also didn't have depictions of arms being ripped off in gory detail. And since comics are almost exclusively sold in specialty stores where nary a child is found, then I'd say that the demographic I mentioned was pretty accurate. And older men? Only the die hards are clinging to their hobby. None of the men I know who collected comics in their twenties still does today. And the reason is all the same, modern comics stink.
