What if you and your icon switched voices for an entire week.
I’d be SO Australian… :)
I’d sound British, and Simon Pegg would be wondering what the fuck his accent was.
marvel: [has a black man walk in the background of the shot of the 6 white avengers]
marvel fandom: REPRESENTATION.
marvel fandom: DO YOU SEE THAT.
marvel fandom: DC, WHERE YOU AT.
marvel fandom: YOUR MOVE, DC.
marvel fandom: ON YOUR LEFT, DC.
Ok. Falcon AND WarMachine/Iron patriot were pretty damn center stage in the movies they were in. Power Man, aka Luke Cage will be recieving a solo series on Netflix this next coming year, and Nick Fury is LITERALLY in charge of everything.
Do NOT play the race card there…….
DC: 50 million Batman movies with ZERO main characters of color.
50 Million Super Man movies with 1 Laurence Fishburne in the background.
And No Wonder Woman movie.
you are exactly the type of marvel stan i made this post for.
who were the leads in the movies sam, rhodey and fury were in? how much screen time did each of them have compared to the lead? count all the black men, black women— hell count all non-white actors marvel has had and compare them to the number of white actors they have.
don’t try to say marvel isn’t racist dude, you’re wrong.
OH and since we are going to mention female lead films despite my post not being about that, where is that black widow solo film?
This person never actually watched the Batman or Superman movies did they?
Billy Dee Williams as Harvey Dent
Halle Berry as Catwoman.
Richard Pryor in such a significant role to the third Superman movie that he was featured on the poster.
The Supergirl movie.
If you wanna use the fact there’s tons of Superman movies as some detriment against DC, you have to also acknowledge DC has two movies that featured female heroes as the title character.
One of these even changed the race to be a black woman.
Now, one could say those movies sucked, and that may be true, but at least DC took the risk, a fact which everyone ignores because the female characters who got movies aren’t the only one from DC they care about.
Honestly like at least 75% of the fandom arguments I get into could be summed as
"Stop acting like your headcanon that directly contradicts canon IS the canon."
I’ve got no problem with having headcanons and preferred continuities or whatever, but don’t try to ‘correct’ people who are going by the actual canon.
Watching Agents of SHIELD next season is going to be weird because Victoria Hand’s girlfriend/ex-girlfriend has the same first name as me.
At least you’re not a guy who has the first name Tony.
I’ve got a bunch of mobsters and a superhero who is an asshole 90% of the time.
So someone replied to my reply on that Superman thing, but then deleted it before my response was posted.
So not one to let a perfectly good reply drop.
I’m gonna post my reply here
Ya know, I’m not gonna even get into “No, all problems can be solved by talking” because we’re never gonna agree there, and that’s pure opinion.
But you’re factually wrong on Superman.
Superman has always (barring the Silver Age when the Comics Code prohibited any hero from killing) been willing to kill to save a life.
Golden Age Superman fought folks near edges of buildings and didn’t try to save them if they fell.
COIE had Golden Age Superman punch the Anti-Monitor back so that Anti-Monitor was caught in a wave of oblitaration so he died.
Post-Crisis Superman outright executed Zod and the other Kryptonian criminals.
He had them captured, in cells, they talked of how WHEN they got out, they’d come to Superman’s world and kill everyone there and there was no way he’d be able to stop them.
He exposed them all to Kryptonite to execute them
The fight with Doomsday, Superman is obviously intending to kill Doomsday at the end of the fight.
"It’s time for Doomsday to get his"
He punches Doomsday with such force that people in buildings nearby feel the shockewaves.
His last words are “Doomsday, is he….is he?” and I REALLLY doubt the words he was looking for was “knocked out?”
In fact he DID kill Doomsday ,the fact Doomsday got better doesn’t change that.
Nu52, Superman was killing Parademons in the first few issues of JLA.
Every version of Superman will kill to protect others.
Every single version except for the ONE period in comics history when there was an unbreakable rule forced on the editors that made EVERYONE not kill to protect others.
Superman will kill to protect others.
That is the canon, that is t he canon for most of his existence, that is who he is as a character.
If you want a hero who will never kill anyone ever, they do exist in comics, but it’s not the big guy with the S on his chest, it never was, stop pretending it is.
