So Bendis is going full retard on this one, huh?
Why the fuck would Spider-Man, of all characters, be in favor of this?
I can kinda understand why Spider-Man would consider this. I mean, he's always taken loss extremely badly, so the possibility of preventing future losses might be really appealing to him.
On the other hand, it really feels like he should be way more conflicted about this.
>>A mysterious new Marvel character comes to the attention of the world, one who has the power to calculate the outcome of future events with a high degree of accuracy.
Didn't Reed do this in Civil War with a formula? And who the fuck believes future events anymore? Only like two of them ever came true, just ask the fucking X-Men.
And remember when Remender did an arc about preventing future crimes in Uncanny X-Force?
You think Spider-man is only on her side because she promise him sex after this?
Also irony that spider-man is always against captain america.
Time travellers... other super smarts. Layla Miller... Theres like 100. This plot has been done before several times.
x-force on killing kid doomsday even.
Kang as a kid, in that one book..
There's no way he can be wrong. If he's wrong, then a system that can predict the future would have to stay in place, and that would be terrible for a superhero comic. How would Spider-Man foil robberies if they're stopped ahead of time?
The system would have to be portrayed as wrong, and the superheroes would eventually have to destroy it or whatever.
I think he's injured in the movie, taking a hit intended for Tony, I think Wanda does it after her emotions become amped to fuck by newly unlocked powers. Thematically that makes the most sense; "it felt like that". A wake up call to Tony and Wanda about how dangerous their non-functional relationship is.
As for the CW2 comic, fuck knows. Maybe it's Vision given Agatha saw him doing bad shit.
Vision or his family does shit that leads to Premonition Person becoming super important.
Reposting from here, basically Bendis didn't even have a whole story but he pitched an event, in which he decided to kill somebody, anybody, he just didn't know who yet
>To the surprise of basically no one, Marvel Comics plans to kill off what's described as a "major" Marvel superhero in the forthcoming event miniseries Civil War II, The Daily News reports.
>The comic, which pits Iron Man against Captain Marvel with a team of Avengers flanking each, sees a mysterious new Marvel character comes to the attention of the world, one who has the power to calculate the outcome of future events with a high degree of accuracy. This predictive power divides the Marvel heroes on how best to capitalize on this aggregated information, with Captain Marvel leading the charge to profile future crimes and attacks before they occur, and Iron Man adopting the position that the punishment cannot come before the crime.
>Captain Marvel is, of course, being propped up for her 2019 movie, so making her a lead character in a comic designed to cash in on an existing movie (Civil War II starts a month after Civil War hits theaters) makes sense.
>“People’s personal accountability is the theme of this one,” series writer Brian Michael Bendis is quoted as saying. “From the way cops are acting on camera, to the way people talk to each other online.”
>The incident that galvanizes the superheroes into battle against one another involves this new seer predicting a catastrophe that will be brought on by a superhero in three days. This far out from publication, though, Bendis hasn't quite figured out what the catastrophe is. At the point when he was pitching the story, he hadn't even yet decided on a culprit. The article describes Bendis using Spider-Man Peter Parker as a kind of "placeholder" so they could have conversations about the story, but The Amazing Spider-Man writer Dan Slott said he knew all along that Peter wouldn't be the guy they used -- and ultimately he wasn't.
>“The death is the marketing hook,” explained publisher David Buckley. “The thing that’s really compelling is whether or not there’s a story afterwards that’s going to connect with readers and sustain it.”
That's hardly surprising, it happens more than most people think.
Hickman basically came out and said that the reason for all the Secret Wars delays was that he painted himself into a corner and didn't know how to end the story.
>“The death is the marketing hook,” explained publisher David Buckley. “The thing that’s really compelling is whether or not there’s a story afterwards that’s going to connect with readers and sustain it.”
This is so stupid it beggars belief. It's Full Retard storytelling.
Reed didn't even invent it, he perfected something the Mad Thinker had come out with years ago.
But yeah, pretty weird how they're suddenly acting like this is a big deal when they've had access to TIME TRAVEL without anyone trying to go all Minority Report
>Who does this pissant think he is?
Brian Michael Bendis, future owner of Marvel and DC
>But Falcon is on Iron Man's side
Not for long. It's only a matter of time before Sam realizes Tony needs to check his privileges, and jumps ship.
From almost five years ago:
David Gabriel, Senior Vice President of Sales at Marvel said, “As a result of the Fantastic Four sales and media coverage, Marvel is going to kill a main character every quarter.” He then made sure to say, “This is not a joke.”
In rap culture, when you drop the microphone during a rap battle (in which two people compete to see who can improvise a rap that better insults the other person), it indicates that they have said all that needed to be said, and do not need to say anything more. In the context of a rap battle, this is incredibly cocky and presumptuous, as it implies that nothing the other person will say will be good enough for you to respond to compared to what you said about them. This implication carries over to other contexts, to which a metaphorical mic-drop applies.
Oh, good, I'm not the only one to immediately realize this is just "Disney's Marvel Comics Presents Marvel's Minority Report, Starring Robert Downey, Jr. as Iron Man and Sev'ral Minorities as Captain Marvalmerica."
>After hours of occasionally heated debate, Bendis and Alonso reveal they had a eureka moment during a 10-minute break and came up with the perfect superhero to sacrifice and an even better candidate to murder him. The answer actually gets a loud ovation from the crowd.
This just screams of desperate marketing on the scale of "The Death of Superman". And DC openly admitted that Superman died to sell comics.
We all know who Kamala would side with first
He makes Bucky look an ignorant rookie, makes Kang look like a crazy loser and "Like an Egyptian Pharaoh?" is one of the dumbest things I ever read. Fuck that arc
They didn't know what the story was when they sent that out. They literally didn't know who they were going to kill until halfway through this retreat.
It's just Cap vs. Tony because that's what the old one was.
Everything he did to Wanda, and everything he made characters say about Wanda
Fine, feel free to put your own marks in
Why would any of these people want to do that? You can't count on characterization here on Bendistan, if they wanted Sam on Team Minority Report, they'd either turn Tony into a monster like in the original Civil War or some "Oh, your parents would still be around if the hoods that killed them had been arrested beforehand"
Well Reed is dead and wasn't going to cooperate with them for this anyways. I fail to see how they are ignoring continuity. Like if they could have done this it would have gone like:
>Carol: Reed I need you to start predicting how and when people are going to commit crimes so we can aprehend them right now.
And that's it.
There. Is still a lot for an event that hasn't even started yet.
That's not the only method of telling the future there is. In the MU they have actual working time machines, as well as people from the future living in the present whom they could just ask things.
For instance, Baron Strucker founded Hydra after following Doom through a time machine and finding out the Reich would fall
>The Illuminati tie-in to Civil War II is about the Mad Thinker being butthurt that new character stole his schtick and everyone listens to him, while nobody ever cared about the Thinker
Pic related should be an automatic answer. Out of everything Benis has done, this is the one that can never be undone.
That empty area at the bottom needs more stuff. maybe smug Bendis face from >>78870303
I think the comically good and comically bad square should be marked already. I mean, siding with Carol is like trying to say Robert Redford was right in the Winter Soldier.
>Why the fuck would Spider-Man, of all characters, be in favor of this?
Carol promised him sex if he sponsors her. Weren't they about to date years ago and then it was totally forgotten?
>comically good and comically bad
>in a comic book
This makes me wonder about Steve's role in this, he and Falcon had a big fight, didn't they? Marvel wouldn't put Steve Rogers in the wrong team just so they can re-do Civil War with Iron Man winning... Would they?
The Spidey/Carol non-relationship has been getting brought up a lot in the last few days. Did a bunch of shippers suddenly come out of the woodwork or what?
> Wasp shits on Wanda
> Wanda goes baby crazy out of nowhere and kills Viz, Scott, and Clint
> Spidey shits on Wanda
> Strange, who's supposed to be one of her best friends, shits on her
> Then "No More Mutants" and the X-Men shits on her collectively continuously forever
> Then put on a bus
> Then rapey thing with Clint
>Why the fuck would Spider-Man, of all characters, be in favor of this?
>Spider-Man, your uncle was shot by a criminal you didn't stop when you had the chance, right?
>Yeah, I regret it every day of my life
>Tell me, if you had known at the time thathe was going to kill your uncle, you would have stopped him, right?
>That's what we're gonna do, we're going to stop criminals from ever shooting people's uncles!
>Can't argue with that logic
Yeah, that's why the movie ends with Steve going, "Pierce was a nazi, but this project oversight was a good idea. Let's continue using it to detect future criminals."
The point was that only Hydra would support something like that.
Fucking Pierce. You think this is why Abed was a SHIELD agent?
Oh, I know what's going to happen.
The new Minority Report guy shows up and starts laying on the predictions left and right. The cast takes their predictions with a grain of salt until Dead Man kicks the bucket. After that, Carol takes it personally and starts using Minority Report to track down criminals before they happen, while Tony gets jealous that he is being emasculated by a woman and tries to put her back in the kitchen. Fights and drama ensues, Bendis dialogue happens, and I'm sure there will be a few Deadpool and/or Gwenpool variant covers.
So if we want to spoil who ends up dying, we need to think about who Carol has been involved with.
When is Carol going to accept her destiny and become Karla's pet?
>a major character will be killed by Bendis
anal RAGE is guaranteed
I can't wait to see the fallout
>marvel admitting they are manchildren

Feel free to make your own
>Charging people for crimes based on feelings
CW2: Iron Man vs SJW-Brigade
Marvel claims it's going to try and present both sides as having valid viewpoints, and isn't going to have one side be portrayed as "bad".
Will they pull it off? They said the same thing about Civil War 1
Conservatives are the ones who want to arrest people based on feelings and fears of what they might do

>We must spy on everyone just in case terrorists
>Killing Hawkeye for no reason
>Trying to retcon Chaos Magic

>Ruining 616 Kitty Pryde
I don't even know if I blame him for Age of Ultron because his editors should have stopped him halfway through and told him to stop being a fucking idiot.
Go back to your hole Sanders-voter. This is a thread about freedom
All they have to do is not have the Carol Corps recruit super-villains and shove heroes into space Guantanamo.
They just have to be portrayed as believing they're doing the right thing and not doing anything morally questionable beyond "stop people before they do anything"
>Punishing people for crimes they haven't even committed
according to the source, they literally went in with the assumption that Hitler character kicking this off and then being murdered would be Peter Parker (cuz Bendis wants the Spider-Man HE created to be top spider) , and Slott Machine was fighting them tooth and nail (because having to write something other than ASM would break his 'longest consecutive ASM writer ever high score') until someone else tossed out a better idea that was 'epic, simply epic'
>according to the source, they literally went in with the assumption that Hitler character kicking this off and then being murdered would be Peter Parker (cuz Bendis wants the Spider-Man HE created to be top spider) , and Slott Machine was fighting them tooth and nail (because having to write something other than ASM would break his 'longest consecutive ASM writer ever high score')
Bendis vs Slott when
I actually have some optimism about this.
Bendis......well, yeah, he's got his problems, but he has improved a lot in the last few years.
Carol......several people, including me, have been griping about wanting her to be the take-no-prisoners hardass she started out as......looks like we may be getting our wish. I kinda hope they ditch the whole "Rhodey" thing, there is zero chemistry there. Unlike with Carol and Jess, but I'll push my ship later.
Civil War......it's not a sequel to the first one, it's a whole new one, with different issues. And yeah, it's minority report.......and it may shock you to know that minority report stole the idea from older sci-fi, which in turn stole it from other works, and you can make an argument that even the bible mentions this sort of thing. (if humans are all sinners, why does god allow us to sin? why does god tempt us when he knows if we will fall or not?) stories borrowing from other stories goes back to before written human history began. It's normal. deal with it.
someone dies! .....and? so what? we always say "we want real change! we want people to stay dead!" isn't this what we want?
bottom line: this board is overwhelmed with hate and bullshit. get over yourselves, stop acting out, and open your minds.
Of course, That sound right, I mean We don't have to jail him.
We just need to put them away from the people that is in danger. Like in the black-hole...
Literally the thing that starts the event is the precog accusing a hero of doing something awful, and then another hero murders them. And Carol is still on team precog after this.
>someone dies! .....and? so what? we always say "we want real change! we want people to stay dead!" isn't this what we want?
I admire your naivety thinking that this person will stay dead.
>I admire your naivety thinking that this person will stay dead.
ok, you got me there.
to be fair, some characters have stayed dead. mainly the less popular ones. Other than Uncle Ben, I mean.....
>"High profile hero" death for the sake of shock value confirmed
-Not going to be anyone from the MCU.
-Spider-Man & Human Torch are safe
-Reed, Sue, & Bruce Banner are in limbo right now
-Unlikely to be a character with their own book right now
She-Hulk? The Thing? Idk.
YOU CAN'T TELL ME WHAT TO DO! YOU'RE NOT MY DAD!
to be fair, Bendis annoys me too, I just don't have this unreasoning hatred of him everyone else seems to. The guy's capable of quality work, he just.......he's on SO MANY BOOKS. too many. IMHO the last year really showed what a bad idea that was, because look at his Guardians run: a bunch of random shit happened, and then it sorta fizzled out. Look at his Uncanny X-Men. It started out strong, but then fizzled out........almost as if he started his run with some good ideas and then ran out, and was too swamped to come up with any more.
and holy shit the Bendis-speak is annoying.
a reveal would be that some hero on ironman's side knew about uncle ben dying or it could have been prevented.
also spiderman unending quest about saving/no one dies, just so he can sleep better at night.
>Captain Marvel is, of course, being propped up for her 2019 movie, so making her a lead character in a comic
The bitch is in every fucking book. Fuck I hate this boring ass cunt.
>IIRC he was also working on getting his phd last year, too.
really? christ. when does he sleep?
>so we should forgive him when he fails to do anything good
that's not what I said. hold a grudge if you want, but you should at least try to judge a work on its own merits.
if author X, who has been a laughingstock for years, somehow gets his shit together and makes something great.....and you refuse to even consider it, because he's author X, who everyone knows is a loser......in that case, the only one missing out is you.
>She-Hulk is all for the "pre-arrest" side
>puts herself on the breadline
Beast (Because Bendis)
Quicksilver (dead in the MCU so they don't care)
Kid Nova (On main Avengers roster)
Rage (D-List black character dying just liked CW1)
Power Man (not Luke Cage)
Doctor VooDoo (because Bendis apparently hates him)
Its going to be someone who is hard to adapt to the MCU or someone they don't have the rights to
God Lord, the only way this can get worse is if that cunt of America Chavez gets a main rol and a solo book.
This is shaping out to be worse than fucking age of ultron, and that was shit splattered on paper for 8 issues straight.
Good. That was always stupid. Spidey doesn't kill himself, but he's had plenty of team-ups with Frank or other heroes that kill where he recognized that sometimes their method can be necessary.
recent? they've been pushing her for years.
> no other female character they could push for increased relevance?
actually, they have been. Black Widow got a small push for a while, and now she's suddenly vanished. Gamora has the mythical solo title that will never actually exist. Spider-woman's getting a lot of attention and sperm. Silk......A-force.....Spider-Gwen......Angela.
I just realized Black Widow has literally vanished. Is she in any books at all? WTF?
> “What if the pressure causes (the hero) to commit suicide,” suggests James Robinson, another Marvel writer, adding that it could be a good way to draw attention to the scourge of cyber-bullying.
i know everyone is (fairly) shitting on Bendis, but let's not gloss over the other retarded ideas.
Someone should really stop James Robinson from writing comics anymore.
> Captain Marvel leading the charge to profile future crimes and attacks before they occur
Why does everyone fuck this up? How about you stakeout the people and places and then wait until the event is about to happen?
It's like a sting without having to setup anything.
She has been getting a lot of gender neutral fans because of the fanfic tier stories. I can't stand her. She was a more engaging character before the redesign.
Fuck this gay earth.
Guys, it just clicked with me
>>Carol Danvers is the morally grey one for this event.
>>Kelly Sue's last Carol book was during Secret Wars
>>Kelly Sue probably left Marvel because they aren't gonna make Carol the perfect flower like she built her up to be.
>March by Waid and Samnee
aha, thank you.
as long as she's drawn by Cho when she gets back, I'm all for it
good point, but you could get even lazier.
1. procogs let you know dude A is going to pull shit in a week in chicago.
2. grab dude A. give him and his family (if he has one) an all-expenses paid trip to a resort of their choice on the other side of the planet. a dozen agents will accompany them.
3. check for other people in the incident (like an arch-nemesis or something). give them the same offer, only to a different set of resorts. (if the incident was set for chicago, send dude A to Australia, and send the other person(s) to europe).
4. everyone can come back the day after the scheduled shit. which, hopefully, did not happen.
it's possible. I think it's more likely that Marvel said "ok, KSD, you've had THREE runs on the character, time to let someone else have a turn." we'll never know unless she writes a tell-all blog post someday.
>minority report: the comic
Great, I can't wait to see what they're going to rip off next.
What happens if the final battle is Iron Man and Captain Marvel flying and punching each other.... and they land and have their final fight in a winery or a brewery or some place with thousands of alcoholic beverages around?
I duuno you guys but Carol takin on the authoritarian side would be the most in character thing she would have been in a while.
>that's not what I said. hold a grudge if you want, but you should at least try to judge a work on its own merits.

There's a ton of people here on /co/ who have this view of Mark Millar.
This is such a bullshit scene.
No matter how much of a hard as you are, if anyone sledgehammers your arm broken you would be too fucked up with pain to do anything.
This book actually makes me think way less of Carol than I did before.
GTFOOH Marvel with this BS.
it has to be War machine that dies.

"Fucking let me at him!"
"Not yet Jen, he hasn't said yes yet"

Maybe Minority Report figures out that Kitty is the leading cause of horrible shit happening to the X-Men, or that Jean's gonna brainwash someone into being gay and they're gonna snap and kill people or something.
I dunno if it's the writers biting off more than they can chew at once, or editorial telling them to work on multiple books all the time, but Marvel is really bad at not giving the old guard some breathing room and delegating some of the load to the new blood. If you just gave each writer one book each then they'd have more time to plan, and they'd have no excuse when they fail to plan
I actually do buy comics.
Just not Marvel events.
Eventually there will be a breaking point for Marvel though, because the constant cycle of events really only works to draw in new readers, eventually these new readers will become old and bitter like us.
Well, maybe not like us, but they'll get tired of it.
>in the last few years
His Guardians and X-men run are blatant contradictions to your post, anon.
Also quit fucking samefagging.
because writers thinking of the fight match-ups first, the reasoning second. She-Hulk is on the wrong side because someone has a favorite hero they want to fight and win against a hulk.
No, her name is America Chavez. Get it right.
even the retired ones got hunted down, the ones who had no intention of putting on a suit again before heavily armed fascists invaded their homes and threatened them and their loved ones
He had an 8 issue arc called the Will and Testament of Charles Xavier, that he hyped up as a BIG GAME CHANGER, and instead it's all undone with time travel and the revelation is not even a revelation. Not only that, but Eva undoes a guy's birth, and the guy wasn't even an asshole! Everyone attacked him and he defends himself. He's now gone from existence, and people treat this as a girl power moment! No seriously, people thought that was a moment to cheer for!
How can you hate Storms best moment?
But if that were true, shouldn't she see the rules that are blatantly unjust and contradictory to other rules and work to fix those instead of blindly following them? I mean fuck, when you're going against the living embodiment of all America stands for several times at this point, that should be enough for some serious reevaluation of your choices.

>Miles drops the mic

it'll start as accurate.
then they'll just start assuming it's accurate and start taking people in. Eventually, one of their own will be accused and it'll make things questionable.
then there will be a prediction they can't "stop" in time, but it doesn't happen.
Then spiderman and a couple others will switch sides, realizing they've made a mistake, and attempt to free those that were locked up.
Then a couple of those who were locked up go commit the crimes anyways.
and the new powered guy kills himself.
everyone was wrong.
there will also be at least one instance where they predicted who the perps were but not the mastermind, and the mastermind was able to find some replacements in time and carry it out any way

Because they didn't register. Even if they were retired, the law said that superhumans had to register with the US government. If they didn't want to go to prison they should have just registered. After that, they can just retire as long as they never use their powers
I can say with absolute 100% certainty, yes. That is EXACTLY what happens.
50% of the time, it's because the writer is put on the spot by the upper management to crank out something AWESOME and EPIC with very little notice (this is one of those times)
50% of the time, it's because the writer is counting on not working on the title for very long. How can Wolverine be in two places at the same time and also dead? What did Madame Web mean with her stupid obtuse prophecy? Who is Gorn really? Don't think about it too hard, just let the next guy figure it out.
I think Bendis speak gets an unfairly bad rap.
It can be rough at times, and I'm not saying his writing is in any way good, but the man at least tries to make character dialogue flow in an organic way, which is more than can be said for most comic book writers.
Whether or not he succeeds is another question, but the dude gives thought to how characters speak, and any effort in that direction isn't wasted effort, I think.
90% of stories are still about heroes fighting villains. It's just that the 10% of stories where they fight heroes tend to be crossovers or events, which people pay more attention to, making you think all they do is fight heroes.
In other words, read more comics
He's obsessed with killing period, because he's a weak writer and only knows how to show shit getting real by nonsensically killing someone, typically someone with a lot of story potential.
You want to know what Bendisspeak is?
lol I actually like bendisspeak every once in a while. In ultimate spiderman (early) it worked pretty well and had a teenage charm.
I can't see it for a book like punisher though.
Who said the future prediting guy could only predict the future on Earth? Maybe he can also predict stuff in space, and Carol and the Ultimates want to fuck with Space civilizations using that knowledge
I don't imagine any of the cosmic races would really appreciate that
What're they gonna do, try and arrest Galactus?
How are they possibly going to be able to paint Team Thoughtcrimes in a good light?
"Thoughtcrimes" based on a psychic predictions in a world where psychic predictions are real is pragmatic. It's a dick move but it could potentially save lives.
So basically baby's first Security v. Freedom story, most will probably side with Freedom as always.
Spider-man always gives villains a chance to do the right thing though, that's what makes him unique. Every hero has someone they've lost who'd they save if they can reverse time.
Let be honest here, Bendis has put Peter on that side because he wants him to go against Miles. Hell Bendis wanted PP to be the one who causes the catastrophe in the first place.
It's been a while since I've seen this pasta.

The problem is, they're describing his predictions as "highly accurate", not guaranteed. It's very much Minority report in the way they handled it, the future is still to unstable to accurately predict and as a result could still get things wrong. So what happens then? What if they arrest a man that had nothing to do with the future crime? Who's going to object, or even give him a trial? Apparantly the psychic kid is all you need for evidence. That's the problem here.
the logic behind it is only valid in a vacuum, it hinges on the assumption that people in power won't be able to cause more harm by abusing it, and it assumes that there won't be any increase in crime as a direct consequence of its implementation.
checking for big disasters and bombings and shit is one thing, but using it on anything not a federal issue is a bit much
It's actually a pattern I've noticed in Bendis works.
He'll have characters make a big deal out of things that have been around for decades without it being a big deal before.
Like him suddenly making a big deal out of "we can't know about stuff from the future" or "we've been abusing time travel too much", ignoring the fact that people like Kang have been fucking with time for decades with no consequences
Bendis was the one who started the whole "time travel is dangerous guys" thing, what with everyone shitting on Beast and him pretending that Age of Ultron was a big deal. Ewing is continuing that plot, and I'm not particularly thrilled, because it's been done before. In fact, 52 was originally gonna have a plot about Booster Gold fixing time until all the writers realized they'd already done that plot before, so they changed it.
This is best exemplified by the whole Wonder Man arc where he says that the Avengers are bad and should disband because of a few bad things tangentially related to the Avengers, and the narrative treats him like he raises valid points even though he isn't
only superpowered authority. I'm pretty sure Wakanda is the only relatively non-corrupt government on the planet, and even the likes of Doom and Namor are fairly regularly depicted as doing a better job of looking out for their citizen's best interests than normal governments.
it's overall rather pro-monarchy, the most celebrated system in marvel is that where you have a king of some kind, and his/her knights of the round table. the only exception that comes to mind is Asgard with how Odin has been depicted since he came back to life and retook the throne from Thor, and even that generally has Asgardians saying most of their problems would be fixed if they could just get Thor back on the throne
That's something positive about Bendis then. I mean how the fuck are these things not a big deal when they should. If those things happened for real, people would start trying to stop them from day one instead of just shrugging them off to behave like children. It's even more stupid to think there would be no consequences to these stuff.

"D-Disney doesn't have any say in the comics, guys! The movies d-don't affect anything, honest!"

Brian Michael Bendis is a gateway writer of the worst kind. He's a bad storyteller, with a clusterfuck of story and characterization that isn't very well done by any aspect, but which attempts to compensate for its weaknesses by adding in excessive double pages and WORDS. The normal anon can see this as the shit it is, and may enjoy it, hate it or be indifferent to it, but all the while recognizing that the writer himself, regardless of their opinion, is plain bad.
However, these very aspects that try to smear over the shit of his core make him a breeding ground for aspie, unsociable tumblr faggots who engage in every kind of faggotry both online and in the real world. The superpowered characters all trying their hardest to look smart, the unending Bendisspeak, boring personalities, the whole quipping faggotry and everything about his stories fuels their escapist fantasies, while the retconned character backgrounds, emphasis on his waifus, and overall preachiness of the writer make it fit just right with the mary-sueish drives of your average redditor and his sense of unwarranted self-importance towards the world. Exactly the kind of shit that makes redditors and tumblr retards eat this shit right the fuck up.
Bendis is basically THE writer to attract the most hated comicbook fanbase known to /co/, which is why, regardless of individual opinions, it is the responsibility of every anon to shitpost the fuck out of this writer and everyone who likes it, and ensure that no Bendis thread (excpet for story times so we can see the trash for what it is) ever encourage /co/mblr to show their faces here.
>It took 458 posts for someone to share this pasta
What the hell took you so long anon?
It looks like the Ultimates are supposed to be the bad guys if their book is anything to go by.
>We fixed Galactus
>>Why did you do that now everything is fucked
>But we can fix this too, you're just mad you didn't do it first
>>No shut up you guys are under arrest
>there are people who still unironically buy Marvel
I consider myself a strong guy. I'm not super strong but I have a good amount of strength. Me and my friends used to dick around busting rocks with a sledge hammer back in high school. Even back then there is no way would be able to knock someone off their feet with sine handed swing. Its to awkward of a grip, it would be slow and clumsy.
If anything Bendis is getting worst with his writing, ever since the Age of Heroes shit he started going downhill hard.
His stories now take too long to finih and they have shitty unsatisfying conclusion with a lot of filler text, Age of Ultron, Guardians of Knowhere, Ultimate End were all shit. There is nothing memorable about his GotG run, his X-Men run was awful and nothing much changed, I have no faith in what he does anymore.
His New Avengers isn't particularly good for what was supposed to be the flagship Avengers title, it was average at best
Invincible Ironman is also ridiculous
Bendis and Marvel in general are cancer
>Bendis hasn't quite figured out what the catastrophe is
Are you fucking kidding me?
Why do they keep doing this? STORIES HAVE TO BE FUCKING PLAYED FIRST. DRAFTED AND REDRAFTED.
Fucking ametuer hour.
Good. Tony Stark is a caricature of his former self and has been the villain at least twice in the past decade.
We're at the point where the Avengers should start to openly wonder why they associate with this asshole, especially after all the shit they gave to Scott.
Hey, who needs subtlety to convey intent when you can just have the characters explain it for the audience. Good one Brian, no wonder you're the best.
Most of them anyway. Maybe not Luke Cage?
>CHEESBURGER CHEESBURGER CHEESBURGER CHEESBURGER CHEESBURGER CHEESBURGER
I wish that ended with Tony waking up.
It's like every issue of a Bendis book is now instant internet meme
How does he do it???
