Agatha is being portrayed in an interesting way, but she's not the Agatha I knew from comics as a kid. Maybe she will become the character we know.

The "well you all won't support new characters so they have to do this" argument should have died the moment Blade, a character who people didn't even know had a comic, became a box office hit.

I dont mind certain things, like Miles Morales being Spiderman. You can take the Mantle and Name of the supers, but the person needs to have their own history. If you give me a Black Superman, he shouldn't be Kal El. He can still be an El but he needs his own history and lore. Same with a Latino Supergirl, let her be someone besides Kara Danvers. We need a Static Shock movie/tv series!

I’ll admit that I’m one of those non- experts that has to google a lot, but from a story telling perspective Agatha just comes from nowhere. It feels too rushed. Of course that’s probably what the creators were going for but still🤷🏻‍♂️

The mcu was built off of taking lower tier characters(in terms of notoriety) and making them likeable. The first and last time mofos probably heard about thor was in movies like adventures in babysitting lol.

TLDR: This doesn't fit the tokenism argument per say, but I think it is a valid view point. I accidentally shit it out late last night/early this morning. (BIG FAN of your content Eric. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK)

I'm pretty sure the emancipation proclamation was written in the 1800s. You might want to consider the ramifications of declaring old doctrines obsolete. A law should be vetted to guard against manipulation before it is passed. Just because "The Road to Hell is Paved with Good Intentions" stems from religious/ideological origins, asinine imbeciles choose to ignore the wisdom of its words.

All of these morons screaming about systemic oppression should travel outside of their own safe borders before they try to fix a world they know nothing about. . If it weren't for the First and Second amendments you wouldn't have the right to your political opinions. I'm getting real sick of these facetious arguments being made by people who complain about hardships just so that they can virtue signal. It's easy to think someone's privileged based on skin pigmentation when you've spent your entire adult life being pampered. Just because you've had an easy life doesn't mean the rest of us have. I guess judging a man by his character and not the color of his skin is also considered an outdated belief.

How long are we going to allow these corrupt bureaucrats to keep pitting us against each other? You can't solve bigotry with racism any more than you can put a fire out with a flame. We were passed most of this BS a long time ago. All we're doing now is moving backwards while creating the very monsters that the politicians insists are everywhere. Try thinking for yourselves instead of for everyone else. JS

EDIT: Some of the spacing was off

Just like with the Superman announcement, would have been so much cooler if it were an Icon and Rocket announcement. Not that I want Mr. Coates ruining that either.

If it’s not appealing to you, why are you watching it? Sports are not appealing to me so I don’t watch them. But you seemed to be obsessed with the desire to not have diversity in

They simply can’t create quality characters anymore and they just want to implement Marxism into every aspect of society. They don’t really care about any “race” they just want to race bait people. Look at Mace Windu from Star Wars. That was a totally new character and everyone loved him. Good backstory and great acting. They can totally introduce new great characters, Hollywood has simply lost all vision and talent.

I agree completely. Marvel and DC comics should be reminded that their long established "minority" characters like john stuart green lantern and the black panther were at one time brand new characters that they took a chance on. Never stop taking chances with new characters I say.

The only story I ever read with Agatha in it was Avengers Disassembled. She was killed off screen when Wanda became homicidal. So I can't get excited for a corpse.

You didn’t give one example why “tokens” are bad? At best, they don’t matter, so why stop it well it’s good to have more groups represented.

Edit: oh, I just took a look at your channel, and you believe in 2021 that sjw are relevant ? Lol, get help buddy.

This is why I am annoyed at the upcoming gender and race flipping in The Eternals. Sprite, Ajak and Makkari are now female, and Makkari is now black and deaf too. Ignore the fact that Eternals are meant to be physically perfect beings and can be healed from injuries up to and including complete disintegration, so how could one be permanently deaf? But why make Sprite female when they could have used Pixie, an existing female Eternal from the comics who is already similar to Sprite? Why make Makkari black and female when you have Titanis, an existing black female Eternal? And while I haven't bothered looking for a good match for Ajak, there are other female Eternals not set to be in the movie. Sure, Pixie and Titanis are less well known to comic fans than Sprite or Makkari, but the general public doesn't know any of these characters, so for the average audience member there's no difference.

Entities just have stopped appealing to the die-hard fans. wwe is like notorious for this… no matter how bad the product is or becomes the die-hards still tune in every Monday night. They still fork over the monthly network fee.

People act like Cottonmouth and Black Mariah weren't some of the best characters in the Netflix Marvel run-up and they were as minor as characters can get in the Heroes for Hire stories

Somewhat needlessly passive aggressive to people unfamiliar with source material. Careful with the low-key gatekeeping Eric, that’s potentially toxic in of itself, as is labelling folks who like the MCU “normies”. 🤨

who the fuck cares? seriously, this is a completly different universe than the comic books. Don't pretend to be a better fan than the MCU fans just because you read books. this is a completly pointless video.

I want to make a WW2 movie about Germany and retroactively include diversity into their ranks. The inner circle would be a fair representation of races all around the world. I can already feel the Oscar in my mind for best producer!

I'm a normie, but I have a lot of friends who love the comics who are constantly explaining things to me and saying how much they wish the movies etc…were more comic accurate and even with my very limited knowledge of the comics I have to agree, anyone who doesn't know the comics won't care, but the people who do would enjoy it a lot more

It BOGGLES the mind that if anything Black automatically becomes popular, while DC is not doing a Milestone Cinematic Universe. WHERES MY ICON AND STATIC SHOCK MOVIES, DC?!?!
