Why You Shouldn’t Like super hero comics

Why You Shouldn’t Like super hero comics

The Comic book industry is a failing industry And sadly there is a reason for it. I and many others feel that comic books are becoming too predictable and to static With nothing really ever changing,  having an impact or even  anything Really happening.

No One Ever Really Dies.. Ever

In the marvel universe jean grey the all powerful omega level super mutant originally dies after sacrificing herself to save her fellow mutants in the uncanny x-men spectacular issue number 100 and is immediately resurrected in the next issue far more powerful then she ever was , with Scot even quoting that the weakest of the mutants had just become the most powerful.since that time jean grey has been killed 25 more times according to Alternate Cover . and has come back all those times except the latest one.

The Dc universe doesn’t do any better  with death and resurrection. in fact it was kind of the one to start this whole superhero resurrection thing that  with superman that almost every super hero has done and/or will do since.Superman originally died  while sacrificing himself to save earth from doomsday in the 1992 DC comic book “The death of superman” And was resurrected a year latter. Since then superman has died 10 times.

Even my favorite writer George r.r martin( writer of a song of ice and fire the series that the popular t.v series A game of thrones) agrees with me  having said the fallowing during an ign interview.

“I do think that if you’re bringing a character back, that a character has gone through death, that’s a transformative experience. Even back in those days of Wonder Man and all that, I loved the fact that he died, and although I liked the character in later years, I wasn’t so thrilled when he came back because that sort of undid the power of it,” Martin said, referring to a comic book story where Wonder Man nobly chose to die rather than betray the Avengers, only for him to be brought back to life years later.”

he continues

“Much as I admire Tolkien, I once again always felt like Gandalf should have stayed dead. That was such an incredible sequence in Fellowship of the Ring when he faces the Balrog on the Khazad-dûm and he falls into the gulf, and his last words are, ‘Fly, you fools.’ What power that had, how that grabbed me. And then he comes back as Gandalf the White, and if anything he’s sort of improved. I never liked Gandalf the White as much as Gandalf the Grey, and I never liked him coming back. I think it would have been an even stronger story if Tolkien had left him dead,”

and what George says is true killing a character and then bringing them back far more powerful then they everywhere is straight up boring and it underlies the meaning of there death.

These two example are just a few of the many many superhero deaths that just don’t matter because comic book readers now know that a superhero comic book death will never last.

Its Always The Same

first some stats Marvel comics was founded in 1939, Dc Comics was founded in 1934. which makes Marvel 77 years old  and Dc comics 82 years old as of 2016  for comparison Sony was founded in 1946 and is about 70 years old. This is to show that the two biggest Super-hero comic book companies have been around for almost 100 years. many of these two companies heroes are also relay old with Superman making his debut in 1938’s  action comics #1, and Captain America making his debut in 1941’s American Comics #1. If you go to a comic book today you will still see Both of these heroes on comic books being released right now. with no offense to any of the super-hero comic book companies they really are just  milking a few set of characters they struck gold with and milking them to death and they surely are not  stopping any time soon.

In Conclusion

There are many more problems with the comic book industry and not even just the super -hero side of it but Sadly  the same thing is happening with the super hero movies which i will talk about here on iganme.com  later on so stay tune for that and much more.

    1. Aleks,I am very fond of Nichebot. It provides some good SEO tools at a very reasonable price. The costs vary depending on the level of mepmirsheb. You would have to see which level suits your needs. I am currently using the Gold level membership.

    2. …"If you want more of something, make it profitable to keep it around."Something they have demonstrated in Africa. Once the local villagers in and around parks and wildlife refuges have a stake in keeping the wildlife alive to attract tourist money, poachers end up having very short interesting careers. (interesting as in "please arrest me before the locals get to me").

    3. 135Wow, fantastic blog layout! How long have you been blogging for? you made blogging look easy. The overall look of your web site is great, as well as the content!. Thanks For Your article about Carlos Nelson Coutinho (1943-2012): obra e vida valorosas | marxismo21 .

    4. Besser es bleibt ein Kunstobjekt – ohne Kerze… 🙂 Unglaublich! Ich habe mich übrigens gerade bei dir als Leserin eingetragen. Das wollte ich schon längst mal gemacht haben. Lese ich doch sehr gerne bei dir mit. Ganz liebe Grüße und ein schönes WE!Daniela

    5. J’ai été Community Manager chez wooga (Social Gaming). Ils sont dans le même bâtiment que VZ. Et le verdict est sans appel, c’est entreprise qui meurt, qui licencie et qui vend des parties de ses bureaux.D’ailleurs, wooga a retiré en mars 2011 ses jeux de VZ pour se consacrer intégralement à Facebook, puis à Google+

    6. Bill,I hear you. Things can get discouraging, but there are signs of hope in the ways people have worked together in Vermont, California, Hawaii and the U.K.There are problems of course. I just deleted a comment that pretty much ridiculed any criticism of people who celebrate the murder of George Tiller.No posts celebrating murder or other forms of violence will be posted on this blog. If people are unhappy about that, they can complain about it on their own blogs. I’ll take it as a compliment.

    7. Thanks Abhay, is there a write-up from the CTA/RTA discussion at the IDID 2010 event? Of course RTA is not eye-tracking specific (as I’m sure you know – but perhaps others don’t) You can still use RTA with plain vanilla observational testing (where the moderator doesn’t ask questions during the tasks, but afterwards). This is standard practice in quant studies where you want to measure task time accurately.

    8.   sismumAn item is worth exactly as much as someone is prepared to pay for it, so if you can find some sort of sucker to fork out a vast sum – well good luck to you.Incidently, the beautiful Katrianna was part of the southport welcoming committee, they were actually passsing them around for them to hold. Katrianna was totally unimpressed, she has only just got round to telling us that she was allowed to stroke it!! She was more peeved that they were giving out free Coca Cola and she didn’t get one!!

    9. Dreambes, sérieux, tu souilles le nom de Ulver rien qu’en mettant ton casque sur les oreilles pour l’écouter. Tu calcules rien, t’es pas inteligent. Je pige pas comment on peu etre autant limité et écouter du son aussi bon. BrefCe chilhoods end est pour moi une réussite totale…..surtt si on le compare a wars of the rose…

    10. Sharon:WRT to the tropics, it's clear that attempts to impose temperate agricultural practices there don't work very well. But that's not the same thing as there being no way for people to exploit them in the future with a different choice of crop and agrosystem.One of the things I was struck by in comparing the maps is that Malaysia/Indonesia is one region where you see both high crop yields and high NPP. I'd like to understand what's happening there better.WRT the boreal regions – are there quantitative indicators that soil scientists use to assess agricultural potential of soils?

    11. Es que lo de la Ciencia y los medios de comunicación es de terror. Yo soy licenciado en Física y en estas útimas semanas cuando se hablaba de si los neutrinos eran más rápidos que la luz o de la partícula de Dios estaba permanentemente al borde de la taquicardia.Si alguien no sabe nada de ciencia se lo cree todo, pero los que sabemos algo lo pasamos fatal.

    12. Almàssera està en un moment clau de construcció o deconstrucció del seu futur com a poble. Està en perill de ser engolit per la gran ciutat de València ciutat i passar a convertir-se en un nucli poblacional dormitori d’aquella, sent un barri despersonalitzat, on els veïns són anònims i la vida qüotidiana es deshumanitza.No vull un poble així.

    13. Magadh, I’m glad in your view of MP you added the the observation that he’s reacting to a tough season and that Saturday night’s reffing was more a tipping point for his frustration. I was a little taken aback by Sunshine’s chiding of Merritt for an offense against the decorum rules for owners. (Especially as footie club ownership trends each year more in the direction of Bain Capital than Roman Abramovich!)

    14. That picture on the tray – ugh, so genius! Yum! Phoebs & I had our last coffee date of the summer on Saturday & I’m so excited for her & her apartment! She told me you taught them how to roast a chicken so they can always eat well at school. You’re so sweet! Can’t wait for your host post on Tuesday!

    15. Anyone know a good deck builder that works in Upper Wannabe Haughtyville (Pascack Valley)? I found a guy but when he is calling composite “vinyl” I get worried. He has to be good because the deck will be built one story up, so posts and joists have to be strong.Also…looking for advice on wood vs. composite when I am the one who will be stuck with all the maintenance.

    16. I have an idea………………….just buy a bag at a real COACH STORE for goodness sakes!!!!!!!!! DON”T BUY DESIGNER GOODS ANYWHERE BESIDES THE DESIGNER’S STORE. Then you’ll make sure it’s real without having to listen to all these ‘tips”.

    17. Hi Margareth, oven temp is very important with macarons – I just made some today and the oven had been turned off when I had not realized, even though I turned it straight back on they turned out cracked and with no foot – so yes I think your oven temp is the issue. Try 160 and if that does not work try a friends oven. It seems unusual to me the the oven would not go lower – it is not in degrees F is it? I am guessing not as you still managed to bake them and at 160 F they would not bake.

    18. That was a great post. My take on bullying is that the bullies are insecure and usually ignorant to what they don't understand and need to make themselves comfortable by ridiculing it. Growing up in upstate New York, I got used to being stared or laughed at, and it still happens living in NYC. But I just take it as a compliment. And usually the people who do the ridiculing are dressed even crazier than I am. I mean, really, baggy jeans and a sports jersey? What is this, Canada?

    19. Soyez sûr, effectivement, que le peuple de gauche se mettra en orthogonalité de tout pilotage à droite du pays.A commencer par demain, manif européenne contre les politiques d’austérité :on va montrer que ce ne sont pas 89 patrons qui vont prendre le peuple en otage.

    20. / Pai, eu am la ing si le merge sistemul… Primesc notificarile, am facut un singur cont curent cu doua carduri asociate unul pe numele meu si unul pe al sotiei (stiu ca nu sunt cel mai intelept si e ok. Am incercat si Bancpost dar nu am fost foarte fericit la ei cand au inceput sa imi ia comision cand imi intrau bani in cont. Am incercat si Alpha, dar au un sistem de internet banking foarte ciudat.

    21. …danke für den Lacher am Morgen, liebe Manu,diese Version kannte ich noch nicht…von Bernd Clüver kenne ich eigentlich nur das eine Lied und irgendwie ist mir da noch eine Variante mit dem Hund von Monika im Gedächtnis, da muß ich nochmal nachgraben……hast du in Zweibrücken was Schönes gefunden?wünsch dir eine schöne Woche,liebe grüße von Birgitt

    22. रोज पांच सात चिट्ठों की चर्चा करते हुए सभी को समेट लेना। आप तो एक निर्देशिका बनाते जा रहे हैं। हाँ आप ने प्रवीण त्रिवेदी जी को द्विवेदी कर दिया है।

    23. Aw I loved this blog. You know I am definitely old school I remember when long distance calls were dreadful (yes I am THAT old) and there was a huge echo or delay when you spoke, so you could only maybe talk for 5 minutes or it would drive you mad. It sounded like the person on the other side was under water sometimes lol.

    24. As complex as our bodies can be and as difficult the surgeries are to repair unhealthy bodies, it is amazing at how simple some forms of prevention can be. Flossing is such an easy way to save thousands of dollars and years of life.

    25. Atentie! Fiiecare batalion de securitate-militie, avea un pluton A.T. (adica USLA) format din militari in termen! Dotat la fel de bine si cu acelasi armament, ca si plutonul USLA “original” format doar din cadre active.

    26. I tire of this PC society we exist within, but given that its all we have I endure. As to 2nd hand smoke,well it does create problems, but as you so correctly point out so do many other chemicals and fumes as well. Me, I don't smoke, never have, tolerate those who do and avoid their tobacco smoke when they indulge. Both my parent's life spans were shortened from smoking so I dislike it, but this is still a free country and though limited more and more freedom of choice is still in place. Good post Ms. Tam
