    Wait, wait, what do you mean Blue Marvel won't be used? They seemed to use him just fine without any problems.

    You'll have to do the digging through the Twitter accounts of some of the people who work at Marvel.

    So the source was your ass? Cool.

    In other news, Unstoppable Wasp ended with issue 8. Sad day. It was a great book.

    Netflix buying Mark Millars company I guess. Well Millar sure seems to be happy, I mean I would to, if my Bank account suddenly got bigger by several million dollars.

    What does this mean in terms of content, though? A Kick Ass Netflix series? I'm afraid I'm not terribly familiar with Millar's creator-owned works, though I know he has a reputation for including elements in his stories that raise unfortunate implications.

    Kick-Ass & Kingsman aren't involved. Likely, this will mean a Wanted remake (maybe comics accurate?) and a Nemesis show or movie. None of this is good news.

    I actually wanna know if we gonna have a Chosen/American Jesus mini-series since this one is really Netflix-made worthy given the context. But in any case, we may never have The Unfunnies and War Heroes getting adapted since it has a reputation being the least-favorite of Millarworld stuff (that, and War Heroes is cancelled midway through).

    Moving on from this and this is a thing coming next June...

    Mark Millar is an awful hack writer who relies very heavily on shock value, to the detriment of the story. Furthermore, most of his actually good stuff is owned by Marvel & DC and therefore not part of this.

    I admit, I am curious if this means Empress finally gets a movie.

    Well, the event is over and we have the original Cap back now because it's almost as if a Nazi Captain America obviously wasn't going to become a status quo and people were overreacting. I just want people to shut up about the whole thing because people were so close-minded about the event.

    I don't care if it was ever going to be a status quo. I care that it was a story written by a failed former politician who attempted to enact a lot of racially motivated policies, whose stated goal with this event was to prove to liberals that conservatives can be good people too; which he attempted to prove by telling a story about a super-Nazi. A super-Nazi who was created by two Jewish writers as revenge porn against Nazis; a super-Nazi whose honorable past has not only been erased because it turns out he was always a super-Nazi before the Allies perverted him via time travel, but whose new origin story makes even the Allies into horrible, irredeemable villains because they used time travel to recruit Captain America but not to prevent the millions of deaths in concentration camps because hey, why worry about Jews, gypsies, and queers when there's one blonde-haired, blue-eyed, white guy to save?

    That horseshit doesn't have to be the status quo to be fucking offensive on every level I can conjure the language to describe. Captain America is important to some people, a symbol of not just what's best about our country and our world but of what we could be, and Marvel decided to abdicate their responsibility as stewards of that symbol to shit all over it for a shock story whining at us about how we don't consider Nazis' feelings enough in our day to day lives.

    Keep on wishing that people will just shut up about it.

    It ended up being about punching Nazis anyway but even then, I'm sick of that story and want to move on. I'm banking on Marvel Legacy from here to kingdom come really.

    And they'll probably never bring up what he did very often just like all the fucked up shit Tony and the rest did during Civil War, and if that's not enough they'll probably just do another retcon.

    In general, I'm basically giving up on comics because I'm sick of Marvel cancelling every book I'm slightly interested in after 12 issues that isn't Ms.Marvel while all DC books have just been kind of meh. At least the Fantastic Four might be coming back.
