Shadow King has definitely gotten into all their heads.

Every playable character from a Smash game plus Inkling, Daisy, and Ridley so far. They said don't expect too many new characters though. I'm guess maybe 2 more at most. Out December 7th.

I always liked Photon. Mostly because I like the word. Rolls off the tongue.

Genis will always be my Captain Marvel.

That's wrong. Strand is also from the first season and is active cast member. There is one character we don't know the status of but he is probably dead.

If you have a limited scope on how stories are written sure.

Who was actually replaced though? While Sam was Cap Steve was still around. He also wasnt the first person to temporarily replace Steve. It's been done a few times. Banner was dead for like a hot minute. Wolverine basically got the Return of Superman treatment. Miles basically got a downgrade getting moved to the 616 since he wasn't the primary Spidey anymore. Thor is still around. Tony was replaced by Doom but he's back.

I can get not liking where the stories they are doing with establish characters but I see it less as some she mandate by Marvel and more that people are running out of stories to tell after 60+years.

The purple-haired lass completely missed the point of Ben Parker's quote. Taken in it's proper context, Ben clearly meant that with great power should come great responsibility. He wasn't suggesting that most people have great power, or that those with great power necessarily use it responsibly. We can probably excuse the girl for not knowing the full context of the statement, but she didn't debunk Ben's point, she just strawmanned it.

That's completely in character for her. Gert from the start was the character you didn't like but later warm up to her. She's like Lisa Simpson. The only character that's more unlikeable at the start Chase.

I'm not sure when the SJW era of Marvel supposedly started but thats from an issue of Runaways from 12 years ago.

Spider-Man was trying to reason with them so he can help Cloak with they were also trying to help.

Here is the reddit thread the completely out of context panel is from.

Looks like a lot of people who pretend to be comic fans trashing New SJW Marvel without realizing they are talking about a relatively old comic that was pretty well received by comic fans at the time.

It sounds like a pile of whiny bullshit.

"He's a total cuck now!"

You know what's really telling though...

Xerxes: "Are you going to be OK?"
Xerxes: "You seem more upset than the people whining about white males in comics."
Xerxes: "You really do seem like you're taking all of this pretty hard."

...and then within a few hours there are 15 downvotes/smites on my profile, lol.

I think we know WHO the real upset whiners 'taking it hard' are around here.  ;D

Are there actual specific examples or is it just grasping at straws to build on the justified Mary Sue complaints?

1. As I said, I'm no great Spidey fan (you want a discussion on how Thor's been emasculated I'm good to go now), but I could probably research a few specific examples for you if no Spidey fans in this thread chime in within a few days.

2. I like how someone who doesn't respond to specific points themselves (ie. YOU) is now asking for specific examples, a little hypocritical don't you think?

I'm a huge Spider-Man fan. Peter Parker and Kyle Rayner are my two  favorite characters. I'm not really sure where the complaints are coming from.

He was the only person I felt envious of.

Yeah I read all of Slotts run and MB treated him like a lot of special agent types and I never felt he was playing second fiddle to her. Plus this is in great contrast to how Silver Sable treated him as a great honorable man she trusted.

I googled it and found one dude complaining about a bad drawing and saying it's an attack on traditional masculinity for some reason. That led me to another article that lead me to the same guy complaining about Dan Slott, Silk, Superior Spider-Man, and how Dan Slott is an SJW.
