that is some serious truth your spitting right there on that "On your left" GIF
I do what I can, lol.
I’m still trying to get over a guy with a Captain America related url and theme to his blog claiming making money is more important than diversity and representation, I mean, could you miss the point of a character more?
And even if you want to go with bullshit concept of “More money = better”….
Wouldn’t a better/more fair analogy be Iron Man (First film of MCU) vs Man of Steel (First film of DCCU)?
Iron Man did make a little more in the US ($318 million vs $291), but worldwide Man of Steel made more ($668 million vs $585).
Who's Reginald Hudlin?
I mostly know Hudlin from his run on Black Panther, where he basically turned him into a caricature.
He’s the one who decided Black Panther and Storm should be together because two black heroes from Africa have to know each other and be in love with each other.
He also did stuff like have Black Panther beat up some guy called Black Knight (who wasn’t the regular canonical black knight hero) so that he could take the EBONY blade, because the big name black hero needs to have an ebony weapon I guess.
My personal distaste for him really struck hardest when after Hurricane Katrina he wrote a story that had Black Panther, Luke Cage, Monica Rambeau in New Orleans because we totally needed some “white heroes don’t care about New Orleans” bullshit.
I’ll also note The Boondocks parodied him with “Wedgie Rudlin” so I’m not alone on thinking his works are such strawman “Black Power YEAH!” that they are pretty much racist tropes in themselves.
