      Dominate? Really, none of the comic book numbers look that good to me. The population reading comics is decreasing it seems.

    You *are* kidding with that first comment, right? It's pretty well documented out there. Yes the periodical print market is diminishing, whilst other platforms grow. But Marvel's problem is that their core IP has fallen through the floor. Like somebody said, fem Thor is one of their better selling titles. Even then, when you compare it to DC's bigger selling IP it's laughable. And when you compare it to say, JMS from just a few years ago it's tragic.

Not sure how this addresses my point about none of the comic book sales figures looking that good.

Folks can complain about whatever bias they want. They have a right to spend the money where they want to do so. It is not like DC's numbers are historically good either.

For what it is worth, JMS run was very flawed in many respects too. So it is ironic we are looking back on it happily now. I always considered Fraction to have the worst Thor run in terms of overall story quality. Others will differ, that is their right.


      People can do what they want with their money but I think the whole thing has also brought out something that apparently was present in the comic reading population that is pretty ugly. And even if I do not consider the aspects in question, the general intolerance towards different things is a bit scary.

    I see that from the opposite end, based on what Marvel have done, the way they've done it and the reasons why. I'd question anyone's perspective, perception and intelligence if they cannot acknowledge that. I think you, and many of those on the so called liberal or left immediately assume that someone from my perspective is automatically on the right, and all the perceived associations that might imply. I haven't seen anything ugly here, other than people's desire to close down free thought and debate via a variety of methods.

Yay, lets take shots at people and turn this into a political argument. Let's never talk about Thor anymore. Just umbrella statements ranting on feminists and whatever else. That sounds fun to me.

You can insult me all you want. Which is ironic. At the end you go on a holier than though parade. If it is a free thought and speech issue than why are you trying to stop mine by insulting me so casually?

I feel those telling us to not be offended are also offended by a whole heck of alot.

But please go on, insult away.

Look Raist bunnies...
