Axel Alonso's Twitter calls this as (black fist emoji) & (white fist emoji).
Tell me about it, white ninjas don't get near the exposure they deserve. its' like the whole company is racist against white ninja's.
just look at psylocke. oh oopsyou're a ninja you have to be asian now.
Good news bad news.
The art has this dirty, flawed and mundane look for the characters.
They have this average joe look to them instead of the hollywood appeal, which is nice.
But then their faces get distorted at times, backgrounds are smears and details are non existent.
Let's see where the next 6 issues go from here.
Who the fuck are these characters
This isn't how they act
Fuck, I hope Starbrand and Nightmask last longer than this series, at least they have a good writer. They could be the new black/white duo.
Cage has been the worst for like two decades, give up on him already
give Iron Fist another book too, he actually is good
Jess has a good reason to not like Danny considering he was a dick to her when they first met but she never held a grudge so this is weird, I mean she let Luke name their daughter after him.
Damnit. Greene would be so good if he didn't do those creepy eyes.
I like it, characters display emotions easily and it's not bland or stale like >>79789246
or course sometimes good art is paired with bad writing so I can't say I care for what power man and iron fist are talking about
Dear lord, was she in jail or in Tumblr to come out looking like that? Was she held down by the other inmates and forced to have her privilege checked?
Not like this
Fist is not an overactive loudmouth with Cage as a calm mature straight man. The character relationship is not one of the cool black one reeling in the loose cannon white one
This is too extreme, both of them should be mature guys with moments of wildness or goofyness. Doesn't matter they've known each other for half a decade. Doesn't matter Cage is married to Brian Michael Bendis and has a licorice baby
I just see you using it in threads to lament over Luke Cage. You must be an OG Luke Cage stan, unhappy how one of his favorite character is currently. I haven't read the early run, how badly do you think he's been altered? What am I missing? Is it because he's a family man, now?
The family man stuff is a very important part of what is wrong with the character.
It's a redefinition of the core of the character but without any real good reason. A reason being, a good story, a pitch to say 'think this character would be better acting like this and in these kinds of stories'.
There's not really anything like that to justify Luke Cage being the way he is, not like Daredevil going from goofy swashbuckler to Marvel Batman or Etrigan from a dumb brute who beats up whatever Merlin as an offbrand Hulk to a rhyming schemer who is at odds with his host and ruins his life getting into all sorts of mischief. Good changes to the core of the character.
There is nothing to Luke Cage like that. Him buttfucking Jessica Jones in a MAX book that canonized and suddenly being an Avenger with him as her husband are not a good reason to change him, they're frankly not good enough compared to what came before. Who gives a shit really? The only decent thing that he's been in, so I've heard, is Parkerbolts
The tl;dr is: 'responsible black husband man' is inferior to 'black guy from the streets who makes a living as a superhero and is always on duty to help' because there are no decent comics focusing on this change or about this concept
Or did you want me to say why the old issues were good
Not that anon, but you've only read four pages. Besides, whether you like it or not, Walker can't just completely disregard 15 years of stories. From interviews, it sounds like Walker is using the first arc to get Luke and Danny back to their roots as a duo and bringing in Jennie Royce is a good first step.
Anyone got this image without the stupid water mark?
Ah, so you think him having a family is 'extra baggage', because it's swapped that is his core concept for something else? Well, You should at least be seeing what you think Luke Cage should be in his TV show. I doubt we'll be seeing MCU Danielle Cage soon. Could have a knock on effect with how he's used is the comics, but him primarily being a family man stuff is going nowhere (especially with Bendis around).
said we might get more of a 'back to their roots' feel for Danny and Luke with this ongoing. You might end up liking it, if you can stand their characterization that is.
>Or did you want me to say why the old issues were good
Sure, if you want. BTW, are you looking forward to Luke Cage?
>She looks different.
Well, she used to be white!
I didn't know marvel had tmnt. When does she become a warthog?
I don't like MCU flimfam
These are a dissapointing four pages
I'm also autistic enough to have been bothered by the cover ever since it was revealed where Fist looks like a wild man >>79782309. Even if they become a duo again, it won't be as a developed version of the original duo, it'll be as calm chocolate gains golem and wild white wutang man
Just didn't comment on it before.
I'm mainly talking about Luke Cage here
Openly a hero. Luke Cage is always Luke Cage. He doesn't need to get to a safe place and change to save some chap from a mugger, he'll just knock the assailant out and tell the victim to be careful. No charge, no bill, you only pay the man if you have a problem and go seek him out. It's very raw stuff, not in the sense that if you read a backend of Power Man you'll be an expert on 1970s race relations and social problems, but it's very straightforward heroism without some of the superhero baggage like a secret identity. It wasn't one of the most popular titles and jumped from writers to writers so there's no real one great run, hence the partnership with Iron Fist(also a poor selling book) but it was consistent in terms of quality in action and drama and humor.
Luke Cage's dialogue and plots are very funny. It's nothing about black people like goobers like Mcduffie would want you to think and it didn't try to tackle REEL ASS PROBLEMZ like GL/GA, so all you really get from it is that Luke Cage talks goofy. It's just a cherry on the cake
F A M
Thanks, so he was once of the first heroes who were always 'on', and didn't have a secret identity. I can see how his past portrayal is shades different to what he is now
(Didn't Bendis save him from obscurity, though? Or would you rather he never?)
