It's kind of the point. Coates is VERY lazy (as most SJW are) so he thinks it's enough to put the words of your enemy in a "bad character" and that automatically makes it bad, regardless of what's being said. This of course also works the opposite way, that's why you have "heroes" like Capitan Marvel or Fem Thor say absolutely bonkers things, but presented as something good :p.

Yeah, they are very signal driven. It's important that they are signaled that something is good or bad, rather than what the truth of the matter is.

This is why if you ask average progressives why they hate Trump and like Obama most of them would not be able to cite policy decisions. They want to be told how to feel.

"But what about the way he talks?" "But what about the kids in cages?" "What about him praising neo-nazis?"

They're quite divorced from reality.

He is a lazy writer but that is who is hired to write for mainstream comic books. Especially ppl who don’t seem to have had any interest in comic books.

He is a "black author" who mostly writes racially charged novels (and is also a journalist focused in... You guessed it! Racism). So of course he gets hired to write comics, and he writes them like they are novels too, that's why they are so long-winded and boring and very un-comic book like.

Yep. I stopped reading Captain America when he came aboard. What sucks is that a woman or minority who loves comic books and wanted to write good stories wouldn’t be hired. Same with a white male. He would have to give daily apologies for his whiteness

i don't understand why he's even allowed to write captain america, considering they wouldn't let a white man write black panther.

JP has embraced the red skull https://twitter.com/jordanbpeterson/status/1379653936827801600

If this sticks until Halloween I hope he does a special as Red Skull Peterson.

WTF? "MANIFESTS"? That should be "PERSONIFESTS"!

that feeling when people can't tell the difference between "Man" (from man, the germanic word for person") or "Man" (from "manus", the latin word for hand)

Fun note, the Saxon (and original english) word for a male was Eorl, or Wer, depending on dialect. Man means human.

Hail Lobster

That got a genuine chuckle out of me.

I think it's just more of what I call the 'druckmann paradox' where an author tries very hard and deliberately to make a specific point but in his clumsiness ends up making a argument for the counterpoint instead.

Once, the American man was a conqueror. Now he is but a caretaker

Neither of these are true, and show the bias of the Leftist author.

First, that the American man heroic mythos is not one of a conqueror, but is of an entrepreneur and adventurer. That's a different concept. The author is trying to portray masculinity as violent and oppressive.

The idea of the modern man, heroically portrayed as a "caretaker" is also utterly false. The modern American man is not expected to care for anything, and is normally barely capable of taking care of himself. Men are assumed, by definition, to be incompetent and not entrusted with any even rudimentary amounts of competence. The modern American man is portrayed as a useless, ignorant, lazy, worthless, drunk, oaf that his wife delusionally seems to stay with, even though he contributes nothing positively to her life besides a paycheck.

But that's the American man as he is portrayed. The heroic idea of a "caretaker" is almost just as bad. A 'caretaker'... a baby sitter. Someone who watches to make sure you don't stab yourself in the eye. Not someone who solves problems. Not someone who inspires people. Not someone who uplifts people. Not someone who can be seen as a rock, or a foundation, to build a family around. Not as a defender. No, just someone who gets payed $10 /hr to make sure that you haven't tied yet. That is the "heroic" version of the American man that this retarded bigot is promoting: a man who is not even fit to be called a mother.

I would argue Americans were conquerors once. We conquered half of the continent and sack Mexico city to get Texas.

The American state was conquering. The concept of a heroic american male is typically a man hurling himself into the wilderness, or is a diligent worker.

It's crazy how you can get an idea of just how much of a pussy the artist is by this page alone. He thinks all of that are BAD things!

Honestly the last few years have showed me that I have more in common with Nazis than I do much of my own countrymen.

This just keeps evidence flowing for that.

Red Skull keeps taking mainstream center-right talking points, and it makes him seem way too reasonable to be a villain. A mocking comic of villain Jordan Peterson does a better job of making him a "villain" with far less effort. Ominous magic chanting, and giant enemy lobsters.

The point of a Super-Villain is equally the "super" part. They need to be greater than life. To reduce a supervillain to mortal level is to remove their narrative power. Some jagoff spouting Deepak Chopra quotes is a roadside loon at best, not a supervillain.

this is what they consider villainous.

That is the fucking weakest villain dialogue ever. It doesn't even sound like JBP. It sounds like some low-T cuck male feminist's impression of his father, the weak bitch that produced a soyboy like him.

Villain dialogue should at least be inflammatory or motivating. Not "I can make a man out of you for $50 and a carton of Newports."

You know if I was a 1488'er and wanted to create an entire generation of them, I could not think of a better lowkey way to do it than this.

No. He's an SJW so utterly absorbed in ideology that he thinks 'manhood' is bad because of what some weirdo with a strange haircut and a thick pair of glasses told him about 'toxic masculinity'.

You're not seeing someone cleverly get one over on Marvel and sneak rennaisance/enlightenment messaging onto their pages. You're seeing an absolute dunder-headed nit-wit who genuinely believes this shit is bad, not despite it being the ideas that built our modern world, but because they are the ideas that built our modern world.

These people despise the modern world because it is 'white man's world'. That's what they really mean when they say they want to dismantle 'white supremacy'. They want to undo the last 300 years.

Part of me wants them to succeed, just so that I can see them get marched into a Chinese sweat shop at gun point and told the rest of their lives will be spent making air jordans.

You know those superhero stories where the supervillain swaps his brain into the hero, but he blows his cover because he's still a complete shitbag? That's modern comics, and the supervillain is Coates.

They did that Superior Spiderman series like that, and I hated it. I just want a spiderman story where Spidey is competent and witty, but struggles with the difficulty of balancing his responsibilities with his desires. He's so much more relatable and interesting when he isn't the focus of a multiverse level drama. Leave that shit for another hero, preferably one whos is already godlike and christlike. Superman or something.

Looks like someone sent Red Skull a copy of Bronze Age Mindset.

This looks like a Rorschach situation.

Moore cooked up what he thought was some strawman ultra-conservative fascist and accidentally made him compelling and sympathetic. That's the story, anyway. Moore including the backstory with him and the dogs and then wondering why people sympathise with Walter is a level above being obtuse.

This smells like a honey pot that I think someone mentioned already. Red Skull is compelling; oh look, he raped a child! That's where this all leads!

This art is fucking diabolical on so many levels.
