    Sadly, my Captain Marvel meme sucks...

    ...but i wanted to put it out there anyways.







    If you havent been paying attention, The actor for the new Captain Marvel film has made some pretty racist and sexist statements about white men. This is my response to her and Marvel for hiring such a hateful person to play in their movie, and then the media shaming us for not wanting to see it.

    Did not see it. Never will. The SJW screenwriters and MSM can scream however loud they like. The absence of my dollars only makes them echo louder.

    Captain Marvel is a boring superhero. The story is that some kid (Billy someone) met this guru who taught him the magic word "Shazam". It's an acronym made from the names of various Greek and Roman gods. On saying it, Billy is transformed into Captain Marvel, with the strength of Hercules, the wisdom of Zeus, the speed of Mercury, and the rest of 'em.

    Where do you go from there? Nowhere. It's a wish-fulfilment mary-sue for small boys, dating from the golden age of comics when comic books were for 9-year-old kids. cf Eragon - about another kid who gets given magic stuff and suddenly he's all-powerful. Boooring!

    Superman has "boo-hoo, I'm an alien". Batman has "boo-hoo, my parents are dead and I'm actually not really a superhero". The fantastic four have "holy shit, I got radiation poisoning", I suppose. Spider man has Aunt May, and The Hulk is pure emo. The Flash, Aquaman and the rest have "I'm a one-trick pony", at least some scope for plot and character development. They have limits to overcome, some scope for courage and heroism. But Captain Marvel? Vacuous.

    This is not to say that Bree Larsen isn't a sexist, racist troll. But no-one could have done anything with that character.

    The real problem with women as superheroes is that being strong and beating stuff up just isn't feminine and never will be. Try as they might, a female superhero will always be a man in drag. If she isn't obsessing over her body flaws and making her way through life by managing and manipulating other people, she's a man. The only authentic chick flicks are, well, chick flicks.

    Caveat, Ripley... She seemed to stay a woman throughout Aliens, albeit one who was completely obsessed about losing her family and entire life to the Xenomorphs and hypersleep; and then rescuing Newt as a surrogate daughter. Non of the sequels after that are worth anything, though.

    What's with the backwards swastika between her eyes? Is this Hollywood's idea of a joke? If so, it's not funny.

    The only thing "bad ass" about women is when you can smell their tuna hole. Aka - literally, BAD ASS.
    I don't want to pay $15 to see some 110 pound woman laying a beating on four ripped guys with martial arts training.
    And worse yet, doing so with cheesy poorly choreographed girl kicks and fake martial arts moves.

    I mean, in X-Men the chicks have super-powers... okay. Fine.

    But we all know the girl-next door can't take a punch in the face. Or anywhere for that matter.

    Ms Marvel version was more powerful and far more fitting of the direction the original Marvel was trying to take the character at the time. The current Captain Marvel is too similar to Shazam/Superman but also still very bland and weaker. Which is why it falls flat as a character you want to see interacting with other characters in a fantasy universe.

    Ironic thing is the Marvel Cinematic Universe markets to the public that they have strong female characters but they have been depowered or neutered in multiple instances compared to the comics (eg. Scarlet Witch). Presumably Captain Marvel will be a critical lynchpin of the upcoming Avengers Engame and how she engages Thanos in that movie.

    I would go see a live action of the PowerPuff Girls. I loved that show and Samurai Jack back in the day.

    Nevermind Captain Marvel. My heroes are Lieutenant Hanley and Sargent Saunders from Combat. Marvel comics can kiss my MGTOW ass!

    Brie Larson destroyed her own movie before it even came out. At best I was mildly lukewarm about Captain Marvel, thinking it would have sexist undertones towards men just like Black Panther had some racist undertones about Caucasians. Even so Black Panther was advertised well compared to Captain Marvel.

    Alita: Battle Angel was done way better. Same level of female empowerment without the pretentious attitude of shitting on men in general.
