Quote:Didn't help that they kind of of chased their customers away hinting at them all being racists and asking for that 4bucks to hear that.
Yes they have been incredibly stupid these past few years.
I don't see myself going back to writers that have posted anti-fan tweets and interviews over the past few years. But I am sure many will forgive pretty quickly if they stopped doing it.
Quote:The stories have actually been pretty poor as well...interest needs a boost and with the movies it should have been easy.
The stories have been dreadful because Marvel chased away most of their best writers. Either due to low pay or the toxic atmosphere within the company.
SJW writers don't seem to understand (or have forgotten) what heroism actually is and their 'heroes' often come across as annoying, whiny, self-entitled brats...basically cliched Millennials.
Looking back, the Quesada-era years seem like halcyon days by comparison to the mess Alonso left the company in.
Seemingly Marvel have:
- No direction (outside of Leftist Political Identity Politics)
- Failing brands (Avengers sells 32,000/month)
- A thinning talent pool
- Fans leaving in droves
Ironically what they need is a BIG event but one of the criticisms of recent years has been TOO MANY (terrible) EVENTS and trust is at rock bottom for them to deliver anything good.
But ultimately I think digging themselves out of this hole will come down to good writing, so they need a LOT of new or returning writers.
You address Omnipotence...tread carefully.
