I did not like the M Word speech myself. I think Remender lacked some understanding of the ideas he was addressing, and showed it in his initial response to the issue. I do think he was voicing some of himself in it.
He later gave an explanation of his thinking that provided a better appreciation, but not much more acceptance to my way of thinking. I plan to get more into this when I address his run on Uncanny Avengers.
I do agree with you on the larger point of people taking offense to crazy degrees. The way some flip their shit over this stuff is ridiculous. I tend to walk away from books that consistently express ideas I don’t like.
I imagine some of these people have an incredibly small worlds, and even worse social skills in order to chose to express themselves in this manner. The worst are the pack of cowards that type their bile filled rants on Anon. These are the lessons you learned from reading super heroes?
Well put. It was extremely frustrating to see a guy who is a driving force in the X-Books to not really “get it.” The entire incident really had a big impact on my future enjoyment of his work. Havok also went from being one of my favorites to now one of my least favorite characters.
But this #firerickremender stuff is nonsense.
Finally got around to scanning in the custom Storm piece i did for kevinwada. overall I’m pretty happy with this design that I made on the fly. this would be a lot more the route i’d go if i was ever allowed to design a new “main” costume for her, given that the one she is in now I originally only intended to be an x-force costume
