Marvel Comics fires Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso

It finally looks like there is a light at the end of the tunnel, and for once it’s not a freight train hauling a load of weapons-grade Ebola. Marvel Comics fired Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso, the man responsible for every stupid move at Marvel Comics.

Turning Iron Man into a 15-year-old black girl with big hair, that was Alonso. Turning Thor into a woman, that was Alonso. Replacing Doctor Bruce Banner, the Hulk’s alter ego with some Asian guy, that was Alonso. Retconning Captain America into a sleeper agent for the Nazi-like Hydra? That was Axel Alonso too.

It’s not like any of the sweeping changes orchestrated under Alonso translated into sales. The opposite was true. Low selling books have been the norm the last couple of years under the leadership of Axel Alonso.

C.B. Cebulski is a guy who loves comic books and loves food.

What’s even more remarkable than Axel Alonso getting shown the door is the person replacing him, C.B. Cebulski.

Who’s C.B. Cebulski?

C.B. Cebulski has been working with Disney in China the last few years. Before that, he was an editor popular with writers and artists. More importantly, he seems like a nice guy. Hopefully, he can return Marvel Comics to its once-dominant form. C.B. Cebulski is a comic book guy. He looks like a comic book fan. One look at C.B. Cebulski and you just want to ask him, long boxes or short boxes?

Maybe under C.B. Cebulski, pros will stop attacking fans. Maybe they will start treating fans like people and not just pixels on a screen.

I think if I was an unqualified, social justice warrior diversity hire taking up space at Marvel Comics now, I’d be punching up the old resume.

Show veterans respect by not calling everyone a Nazi

It’s become popular for some people to call anyone they disagree a Nazi. The problem is, a Nazi is a real thing. Nazis existed in Germany from 1933 to 1945. They killed millions of people and caused the world’s last major world war.

Nazis, real Nazis, don’t exist today because millions of people got together and fought them on the battlefields of western and eastern Europe. Soldiers, sailors, and airman from the United States, Britain, the Soviet Union, and other countries fought and killed real Nazis.  A good many of them gave their lives making sure Nazis didn’t triumph

Today, we live in a world free of Nazis. How do we show thanks to the veterans who defeated the Nazis? Some people call anyone whose opinions they don’t agree with Nazis.

It’s like World War Two never happened.

Even when Nazis existed, not every racist, even if they were white, was a Nazi. The problem is, the word racist has been bandied about so casually for so long, it lost its power. Calling someone a racist isn’t good enough anymore.

Some people on Twitter have taken advantage of Twitter’s new character limit to virtue signal against the social media giant. They want Twitter to ban all of the Nazis. Wil Wheaton is one of those people. He changed his name from Wil Wheaton to Wil ‘stop enabling the Nazis’ Wheaton.

It’s 2017. Not only does Wil Wheaton believe Nazis are still a thing, he thinks Twitter is enabling them.

Eradicating Nazism from planet Earth is one of the greatest accomplishments our country’s veterans ever accomplished. People like Wil Wheaton are completely tone-deaf to this fact this Veterans Day weekend. In their world, not only do Nazis still exist, Twitter is enabling them.

They would want you to believe Nazis are goosestepping all over Twitter.

The funny thing is if it were up to people like Wil Wheaton to defeat Nazi Germany during World War Two, the entire world would be speaking German right now.

Comic book social justice warriors attack another business

The comic book social justice warriors who struck Gotham City Pizza this past Sunday evening/early Monday morning also struck Smoke Shack BBQ located two miles from Gotham City Pizza. The attack on Gotham City Pizza was obviously in retaliation for hosting Ethan Van Sciver on Saturday. The weird thing about this other attack is it happened the week before the attack on Gotham City Pizza.

From Facebook:

I feel sorry for the chef pig. He had to just stand there and watch comic book social justice warriors destroy the door of the restaurant. It’s bad enough he has to prepare his brothers and sisters for human consumption. He then has to witness comic book social justice warriors commit violence. It’s not fair.

Why would the comic book SJWs who attacked Gotham City Pizza attack a restaurant two miles away the week before Ethan Van Sciver’s appearance? Did they travel down to Ormond Beach, Florida the week before the event to scout out the area and perhaps perform a trial run on another similar establishment?

It would seem so. What else could it be? Simple street crime? In Florida? I don’t think so.

We know for a fact comic book SJWs attacked Gotham City Pizza late Sunday evening/early Monday morning in retaliation for hosting Ethan Van Sciver on Saturday. We know this because… we know it. We don’t need evidence to come to this conclusion. We know it because it’s what we feel.

Now we find out an eatery located only two miles from Gotham City Pizza was attacked the week before in a similar manner. A coincidence? I think not.

If a comic book SJW attacked Gotham City Pizza on November 4 they must have also attacked Smoke Shack BBQ on October 28. To think anything else would be silly, irrational, and disconnected from reality.

Law enforcement needs to do something about this clear and present comic book SJW danger. If this keeps up, every weekend another Ormond Beach restaurant will have its glass door smashed in by funny book social justice warriors. Law enforcement in Ormond Beach needs to create a comic book social justice warrior task force. Gone are the days where SJWs would just block people on Twitter or contact someone’s employer to get them fired.

Comic book social justice warriors are now busting glass doors. This has got to stop.

Do not give Sophie Campbell a magic button

Comic artist Sophie Campbell (formerly Ross Campbell) wants to magically kill every Republican politician in Washington DC. We know this because that’s what she wrote on Twitter today. If it’s on Twitter, it must be true.

If I had a magic button I could push that would magically kill every GOP politician in Washington, I would push it and then take a nap.  — Sophie Campbell (@mooncalfe1) September 26, 2017I guess it’s a good thing she wants to do it magically because magic isn’t real. I’m not a fan of Republicans or the GOP either, but I don’t want to murder them. I want them to be replaced democratically with politicians who shared at least some of my opinions.

 

That will never happen.

Update

Looks like Sophie Campbell blocked me on Twitter.

I hope she never gets that magic button of death. If she’s willing to block me on Twitter, she might be willing to murder me with button magic.

Wil Wheaton’s TableTop season four

I found this schedule on Reddit for the fourth season of “geek icon” Wil Wheaton’s TableTop. It’s interesting in that each episode has two release dates. Most episodes will premiere on the paid subscription streaming service Alpha. Then, two or three months later, they will publish the episodes on YouTube.

The first two episodes of TableTop season four premiered on YouTube as well as on Alpha.

Wil Wheaton's TableTop season four - Bent Corner

If you want to watch Wil Wheaton and his crew of wannabe D-listers play the Fate: Core System roleplaying game system today, you’ll have to pay for the privilege. That, or wait almost three months to watch it for free on YouTube.

Alpha is only five bucks a month, but that’s five dollars too much. Watching an episode of TableTop for free on YouTube is too much. If something has social justice warrior Wil Wheaton in it, I will pay money not to watch it.

Wil Wheaton is a talentless dick. He pretends to not only be a nerd, but he promotes himself to be the king of the nerds. If Wil Wheaton was a nerd, he never would have begged to leave Star Trek: The Next Generation. A true nerd would never want to get off a popular Star Trek TV show. A real nerd would fight like a badger to stay on a Star Trek TV show.

From his website:

Here’s the absolute truth why I left Star Trek. I left Star Trek because it was seriously interfering with my career in feature films. I was in a situation where I was constantly having to pass on really good movie roles because I was on the series. I had a film career before Star Trek. People knew me before Star Trek. As a matter of fact, at Comic Con, a lot of people came up to me and said, “I started watching Star Trek because you were on it and I was fan of yours from Stand By Me and I stopped watching it after you left.” I had a lot of people say that to me.

I would bet $100 nobody at Comic-Con ever told Wil Wheaton they starting watching Star Trek: The Next Generation because he was on it. The same goes for someone at Comic-Con saying they stopped watching it because he left. It would be strange for someone to walk up to him at a grocery store and say this. Am I supposed to believe “a lot of people” at Comic-Con did this?

No, I’m not buying it.

After Wil Wheaton left Star Trek: The Next Generation, his movie career went… nowhere. He’s a former child actor who can’t get any type of real acting work as an adult unless he’s playing himself. For example, The Big Bang Theory. Wil Wheaton is a reoccurring character on the show. He plays himself.

Wil Wheaton is an actor who cannot act. He compensates for this personal deficiency by reinventing himself as some sort of geek icon, a king of all nerds. We’re supposed to believe that any sort of nerd, let alone a king of all nerds, would beg, whine, and demand to be released from a TV show with the words Star and Trek in the title.

Thanks, but no thanks.

There is a new Superman and he is Chinese

I haven’t been following what’s going on in the world of comic books these days, especially superhero comic books. Movies have taken the place of actual comic books when it comes to superhero storytelling.

It would seem that I’ve been missing a lot. For instance, Superman is now Chinese.

There is a new Superman and he is Chinese - Bent Corner
DC ENTERTAINMENT

It appears from the cover art that not only is Superman now Chinese; he is Communist Chinese. His uniform is red and features the stars from the Communist China flag. Even when Superman was a Kryptonian- American, he didn’t go around wearing parts of the American flag as a uniform.

Buy “Red Son” on Amazon

This isn’t the first time Superman has been portrayed as a godless Communist. The 3-issue Elseworlds miniseries Red Son told the story of what would have happened if baby Superman’s spaceship had landed in the Ukraine instead of Kansas and he was raised in the Soviet Union. It came out over ten years ago, and I haven’t read it since. I remember enjoying it. I thought it was an interesting premise.

This new Chinese Superman doesn’t look quite so interesting. In fact, it looks quite bad. The artwork looks cheesy and just ugly. I wouldn’t pay three dollars to read it, although I would probably pay three dollars not to read it.

When it comes to reading comics, you’ll have a much more satisfying experience reading older stuff. Avoid any of the material produced in the last five years. DC Comics and Marvel have been putting out a lot of social justice warrior friendly junk lately. Marvel has been especially bad. Thor is now a woman. Ms. Marvel is now a Muslim. The good news is that they both publishers have such an extensive back catalog of work, it doesn’t really matter. You can just ignore the new stuff and go back and read the older material.

Or wait for the movie.
