You remind me... Johnny Storm in that last teen Fantastic Four movie.  I think that movie was worse than She-Hulk. 

Ohh yeah, there’s another. It’s possibly the LEAST terrible thing that film did though. 
How do you mess up the Fantastic Four? Honestly? It’s family time mad science adventures, Rick and Morty if they actually liked each other and Rick wasn’t an ********.

You, sir, are supposed to be skeptical, but you saw that "woke worm" and went for it hook, line, and sinker. What a fool.

Truth, Justice and the American Way

"...the "the American way" was apparently dropped by the radio show in 1944..."

"...in 2011 Superman renounced his American citizenship in David Goyer's "The Incident" in Action Comics #900 in order to adopt a more global perspective..."

Twenty-eleven! That was more than a decade ago.  It's a scam.  A grift. 

Uh so? Superman renounced his citizenship 11 years ago. And that makes “it a scam”? Please elaborate.

When statements are not consistent, look for the real motive

“I made it to DC Comics and made it to Superman. My little-boy dream came true, they made him ‘woke,’ they got rid of his American citizenship.” 

Assuming he was actually employed at DC, was he hired before Superman renounced his citizenship?  If so, why wait until now to claim DC "woke" Superman?

If his employment was after Superman renounced his citizenship, then DC didn't make Superman "woke" after he got his dream job.

It's the inconsistencies that raises red flags.

While we're on the topic, I have an anti-woke bridge in Brooklyn that might interest you, or you may prefer some lovely anti-woke swampland in Florida.

According to Rob Schneider.
 

I wouldn’t really know as it been more like 20 years since I have watched SNL. 

Perhaps I was hasty.  Perhaps you believe in life after death and NBC has been showing SNL ghost stories and skits for the past 6+ years.

By “inconsistencies” you mean things you don’t know. You don’t know when he worked for DC. Therefore in some self fulfilling conclusion you assume that means there are “inconsistencies” in his story. And then based your self fulfilling conclusion which are based on things you don’t know, you feel empowered to pass judgement on me? Mmmkay Columbo.

Perhaps you don’t understand basic figures of speech?

Personally I don’t care. But I think it has nothing to do with racism. They care about the story, that’s long been established, and it doesn’t make any sense at this point. Feels pushed. Not authentic. An agenda if you will. 

Hold on a sec.  We are talking about a Disney movie, not some long established folk tale. In fact, in the long established folk tale the mermaid does not have a happy ending. What is more authentic about a white MERMAID with red hair than a black MERMAID with black hair?

Consider that 7 year old white girl with red hair pretending to be Ariel.  Now consider that black 7 year old girl who goes to the movie and  hears that it is just impossible there could be a black mermaid.

But there you go, you have guessed what some other people are saying.  It's not about race, it is about authenticity.

 

I am glad you like Rings of Power.

I don’t know anything about the mermaid thing. I was talking about the rings of power. Some People take their Lord of the Rings stories seriously. That’s what I was talking about when I said it was a long established story.

Cool.  There is a big to do this week about the little mermaid, seems to have supplanted Rings of Power in the outrage cycle.  OK with me if we stay out of it. Have a good day.

Last week, Barris, who will be writing and directing the new project through his Khaslabo Ink Society production studio, told Variety that his take on Dorothy’s journey will give a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘Somewhere over the rainbow.’

Barris told the outlet that his version, titled simply Wizard of Oz, will feature representation from both LGBTQ and other communities in an effort to tell a story that tackles modern-day issues.

“The original was an allegory and a reflection of the way the world was at the time with things like the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl,” said the director. “Now we’re going to turn a mirror on where we’re at right now and take disparate characters from the LGBTQ community, from different cultural communities and socioeconomic communities, and tell a story that reflects the world.”

Doctor Who already did that - The Wonderful Doctor of Oz is a novel where the lead character is 

Spoiler

a boy named Theodore, who overheard the Doctor saying "when I was a man" (this is the thirteenth Doctor, so the first female TV Doctor) and followed her into the TARDIS and later "Oz" because Theodore wanted to be a woman.... a woman named Dorothee.... (an anagram of Theodore).

The creator of Dilbert, Scott Adams, announced Tuesday that his comic has been canceled by nearly 77 newspapers, which he says are owned by one media company. 

Dilbert follows the titular character as he navigates American office culture. Recently, as "woke" culture has permeated workplaces, it has been addressed in Adams's comics. 

"All of the wokeness and anything that permeated from ESG [environmental, social, and governance] … so that stuff made its way into the business world, and then, it became proper content for Dilbert," he told Fox News. 

Coincidentally, Adams announced on Twitter that his comic is being stripped from 77 newspapers, which is coming as a "substantial" financial blow to the creator.

It’s like Andy Warhol famously said, “in the future everyone will be gay for 15 minutes”. Or something like that..,,,

Anyway, I only have two words to say about Dr Who and they are “Tom Baker”, I’ve never actually seen any of the others……

Just received my copy of Isom #1 today.  Interesting story to start off, I'll be interested to see where it goes from here and how it branches out.

Ah, don't be like that.  Spill the storyline and what makes it anti-woke.
