Good for the character/mantle I suppose, wouldn't have an ongoing otherwise.

Neither of those post have anything political. The first one says DC sucks at PR and is right, and the second one is clearly about how Dr fate relationship with egyptean gods and religion of old gods.

it's just that he was before he was abducted and re-educated by Nabu. I mean it makes sense for him to be Arab, bringing your child to an archaeological dig isn't something that really happens.

Oh, I see. OP said he was an Arab and a Muslim, I assumed it was true. Which would make no sense with the ankh.

I don't see why this shitposter is spamming that this is a /pol/ thread. Even if someone states that they dislike the change, that doesn't make it /pol/.

And anyway, this change makes sense given Dr. Fate's origin.

His dad is from Egypt and his mom is white. So religion was probably not a big thing at his house. Plus he was raised in America, their is even a Muslim girl chasing his dick because she wants him to dump his Arab but not practicing Muslim girlfriend so she can make him a proper Muslim.

A Dr. Fate being from the Middle East would be kind of cool considering the cross roads for global religion that area is. There's a little bit of everything.

I kind of have a hard time believing any of the "magic" characters are actual adherents to any real religion, though. Except Constantine, but he's only Catholic in the lapsed sense.

God, he got fucked over so bad by Taylor and Wilson. I was actually hyped for this guy during his intro arc, too.

Really, New Earth 2 is a fucking workshop on how NOT to make a comic book.
>>
>>77845381
Go read the comic before you say that.

First of all it's terrible, not just mediocre. Second of all, every other character is ethnic because 'le PoCs need a le voice XD!'

Third is the obvious grrrl pwer shit going on in it.

That's because Muslims only marry Muslims. If you don't convert, it's not happening.

His Mom is a white woman. I don't even know if she's muslim, because Paul Levitz sucks too much to bare reading.

He was always from the middle east technically. I mean Kent was like a five year old child who was raised in a pyramid after Nabu killed his father and adopted him. He was white, but he was raised in the middle east.

I wouldn't exactly call the three years between Noh-Varr dropping the mantle and Carol picking it up "ages", but I think that anon was referring less to the name itself and more to the fact that her Captain Marvel run so far has been a nonstop stream of girl power.
>>
>>77845446
I'm referring to the Squirrel Girl comic pushing an agenda, not the character existing. Read my post, please.

And as for Captain Marvel, it's pushing more feminism shit. I didn't actually care about the change, but it's more about what they're doing in the comics than just the change in that case.

>>77845504
>y-you're just not in the audience for the comic!

I only read them in storytimes here on /co/, I'd never spend money on that shit.

Also, what the fuck kind of argument is that? I never even used the phrase 'SJW', even if that's what it is, and clearly my opinions don't fall in line as an 'SJW.'

That's like saying 'If you read a book about Nazis you are a Nazi.'

Egyptian Fate makes a lot of sense also because for a long while, Europeans (especially Greeks and Romans, but then also a plenty of more modern cultures) considered Egypt (and later Persia too I think? Definitely was the case already around Elagabalus' times) to be the main source of arcane knowledge. It's going back to the roots in a way.

I've read the new Dr. Fate - it's utter garbage.

These action-packed, non-stop thrill ride issues are:
>him texting!
>it raining!
>talking to animals!
>him texting some more!
>trying to be a doctor and discover his new magicks!

This and the art sucks. Which is sad, because I really like Dr. Fate.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horseshoe_theory

But the picture represents a widely accepted idea. Extremism ultimately boils down to the same insufferable shit on both sides, the only people denying it are sjw commies on tumblr and such and /pol/tards who don't want to admit it's true and they're more than likely tsundere for each other.

No, it's not. The horseshoe theory is utter trash. Know why? Because left-right strict dichotomy to political views is fucking dumb.

The diversity debacle on /co/ is more an example of polarisation; many people here didn't hold opinions about those sorts of things until that shit started.

>>77845056

Not at all. It's a conscientious choice. As Johns said himself years ago when asked why they don't pander market like Marvel does, they aren't going to market minority facets of the character. They prefer to just write a good character and just market the character.

>>77845802
>The diversity debacle on /co/ is more an example of polarisation; many people here didn't hold opinions about those sorts of things until that shit started.
This is also true, up until the Starfire shitstorm of 11 /co/ didn't really care about this stuff and was actually more socially liberal, or at least not violently against threads talking about more of that stuff. After that shitstorm happened though it became this huge shit storm of an issue an people pretty much aligned into us vs them factions.
>>
>>77845802
How is saying they are pushing an agenda not complaining? Are you saying it's a positive thing? Are you just exclaiming "these comics express viewpoints" without passing judgment either way?

Most of 4chan was relatively socially liberal until social justice shit picked up and started pushing the PC agenda.

>>77845941
No, I'm not complaining, I stated an objective fact and left it.

I didn't say COMICS ARE PUSHING AN AGENDA I DON'T LIKE, PANDER TO ME, REEEEE.

I said comics are pushing an agenda, and that makes me not want to read comics. That's not complaining, that's stating a fact and my response to that fact, which is negative.

>I want to read a comic about a guy who turns giant
>No comics are like that
>Oh, well, that's too bad, guess I won't read comics
>STOP COMPLAINING LOL FAGGOT

This is how you sound.

>>77845955
Not really, about half of it (mostly from /frz/) is.
>>
>>77846002
I mean I'd say it's really like:
>make thread about giants
>guys comes into thread and won't stop talking about giants are ruining comics
>ignores the fact that he could easily read one of the many books featuring non giants

Shitposting cannot be abided anon. Just because something is the genuine way that you feel doesn't make it a fact, it's an opinion. And stating a negative opinion is complaining. If you can't even accept that then there is truly no hope for you.

You are truly the SJWs opposite number. Unable to listen to reason or spout anything but dogma. Constantly playing the victim as others criticize you. A monster of /co/'s own creation.

I really hate the internet sometimes

No, it's not like that. He didn't make a thread about social justice agendas in comics. It was brought up by someone whining about /pol/.

It's relevant to the topic of conversation.
