The financial success of Marvel Studios basically ruined Marvel comics

Everything reads like it's been stripped down for a smooth translation into live-action

I'll believe you if they make Steve Cap again in April.

Marvel has been doing that since Ultimates 1 years before they even started Marvel Studios.

Yeah, in prep for the movies.

Tony was getting pushed in Civil War and a relaunch 1/2 years before his movie

You know, just like the movies.

It is the most annoying when they don't use smaller characters, and then when the movie happens, they all use that character at once.

Also, the cartoons and shows tailgating the movies is just the worst.
>>
>>77821783
Probably will be in 2020.
>>
>>77821684
Yeah, you can totally see all the MCU inspiration in Vision.
>>
>>77821845
In 2020, Arno will be Iron Man so even less like the movies.
>>
>>77821819
>It is the most annoying when they don't use smaller characters

Yeah, Marvel is never gonna give Squirrel Girl, Howard the Duck, or Moon Knight an ongoing comic!

It's not fair. You all kept telling me that the comics were just like the movies and they aren't! They aren't at all!

The issue is how the stories are written

There's nothing wrong with reading the Big Two... if you enjoy reading the Big Two.

People like OP clearly don't enjoy reading the Big Two, so they should stop.
>>
>>77822073
They're practically A-listers. Call me when Black Knight, Hellcat, and Death's Head get ongoings.

everything goes in circles. Whenever marvel becomes succesfull, there is a disaster coming ahead. And frankly, it already started with AoU.
CW might be a financial success, but will have the same reviews or worse than AoU.
>>
>>77822482
Almost all marvel movies get 6/10-7/10 reviews, it's just that that is still considered "positive"
>>
>>77822560
They get 6/10 reviews after some time passes.
When the movies are fresh they get 8/10.
>>
>>77822460
Ironically, their fans are almost exclusively women.
>>
>>77822685
Who would have know that Voluptuous Women are actually Women's Power Fantasy?

Everyone knows that guys prefer lolis

>>77821783
>Noir, UK, Ham is a fucking pig, Pete, and Kaine

Miguel is in that weird place where he looks white but he's half hispanic, right? why are there so many spider-women? I just want Gwen and Mayday. Anya can go fuck herself.
>>
>>77821684
>Everyone has plot armor

You must be new to cape comics.
>>
>>77822737
It's less that and more that for the longest time, if you were a female comics fan, there weren't many female protagonists, and by virtue of being cheesecake comics, all of Zenoscope had female protags. Plus they were all "dark and gritty fairy tale reimaginings" which is a beloved genre for a lot of women.

The end result was that while they were cheesecake comics, they starred strong female protagonists with plot and settings that appealed to the female nerd demographic. Plus the cheesecake was mostly just the covers while the interiors had much worse art, and therefore less cheesecake-y art.

Zenoscope is basically for 13 year old boys and middle aged women.

He was last seen on Earth-001, which is where the Web Warriors are now. They'll find him soon. (spoiler)R-right? ;_;(/spoiler)

Hellcat is getting an ongoing, anon.

http://www.newsarama.com/25820-hellcat-returns-in-new-ongoing-series.html
>>
>>77822883
Advice for the future, but you need to use Brackets [] instead of parenthesis. ()

Anyway, Kaine is gonna become a web warrior, and he's gonna butt heads with Noir and UK. Mark my words.
>You'll never see May tenuously form a bond with an alternate universe clone of her dad
You could say Noir, but he's a cranky old man. Or, at least I think he's old.

The joke was that Hellcat, Black Kngiht, AND Death's Head are all getting comics.

Mockingbird is getting her first ongoing ever.

Like, Marvel can't find enough stuff to try and produce.
>>
>>77823291
Bendis the writer? The writer at Marvel?

>>77823569
Joke! The joke, like the thing that makes people smile and sometimes laugh. Read New Avengers! Jokes! Everywhere
>>
>>77821684
No, Marvel is just losing talent. Remember and Hickman left, their two best writers. They will probably be back but they needed a break. That tells you that the work policy is bad.
>>
>>77823841
Don't worry they'll be taking some of DC's talent next summer when some of the DCYou stuff gets cancelled
>>
>>77823169
again with blaming Bendis, which husbando is this time?
>>
>>77823870
like who?
>>
>>77823899
King, Valentine and Caldwell?
>>
>>77823945
King already works for marvel. The rest I wouldn't necessarily call "talent"
>>
>>77821715
Yeah, but Ultimate's had a new universe to fill with continuity and it's simplicity was flavored by "realismâ„¢".

It wasn't just a dumbed down story. At this point the cartoony marvel comics are closer to the films.

When are we going to get that grim and gritty Marvel Film? Oh wait (1) Blade already did that and (2) DC has already claimed it's stake in the that style.
>>
>>77822819
I always saw Scott Lang as a very light skinned spanish guy, class-warfare was a not so subtle theme of his trespass into superherodom.
>>
>>77823960
King doesn't have an exclusive contract though, so he will write one book and thats it
>>
>>77823961
>When are we going to get that grim and gritty Marvel Film?
Daredevil, Jessica Jones and soon to be Cage and Iron Fist

Marvel has been going to shit for a while.

Eh, Bendis is only a symptom.

>>Filler dialogue and "witty retorts" everywhere

Please stop with this "b-but they quip" bullshit. It's been going on in superhero comics since the 40's. Marvel only brought that minor element to the big screen.

Remember ret/a/rds, western comics aren't like your chinese cartoons.
>>
>>77827165
It used to just he the heroes, now it's everyone, even unnamed characters, books read like sitcoms
>>
>>77824283
It was boring shit

NOTHING deserves 100 issues of build up
Not even Blackest Night had that
Superior was just a backup story most of the time
