Comic Book Nerds and whining
Hi I’m Laureezy and I’m a comic book nerd, and I think I hate comic book nerds. Other comic nerds. I honestly do. We’re a really whiny bunch of human beings. Like super whiny, notice I said we not they, I’m not distancing myself I have done it too.
I really don’t like the current crop of nerds that I generally interact with online. We’re such an impossible group to please all of the fucking time and boy do we like to complain, that’s a nerds past time online I think, complaining. And we don’t like change at all. We like to complain about change, constantly.
You know what’s the latest thing we’re complaining about Johnny Storm being black, the hate that Michael B Jordan is receiving online is to say the least disgusting. Other than you’re usual racist remarks (woohoo for bigots) the thought that you can’t have two siblings one adopted of a different race is mind boggling the average nerd online. They say and I quote “it’s not historically accurate” and I’m sitting there like guys know that it’s a made a story right? Historically accurate? I died.
Man Of Steel
A lot of nerds complained about Man of Steel not about the story (which I liked by the way) you know what I kept hearing complaints about? His suit. The changes to his suit, because the underwear on the outside made so much sense. I was like
My favorite thing to do right now is to watch guys herald the greatness that is Gotham. I like Gotham as a show I had faith in it from the get go, and when I started watching it no one else seemed to like it and boy did they complain about it. My favourite complaint was that it wasn’t about Batman aka Bruce Wayne. You’d think the show was called Batman; The Coming of Age 😂😂😂
But now oh now Gotham can do no wrong Gotham is the best TV show to ever exist in TV show land. And I’m just sitting there thinking you guys are so fucking fickle and shouldn’t be allowed to vote.
Avengers: Age of Ultron seems to have rubbed guys up in the wrongest of ways, like the level of complaining about this movie is unparalleled. Sometimes I want to just explain to people what a remake means but I’m tired I won’t. Age of Ultron might need it’s own post.
My only question is what happens with people, why can’t we just honest to God enjoy movies and TV. What is it?
Why do we feel owed something? Entitled? Who gave us that right? Most of our comics now are being re-imagined and that’s a good thing otherwise we’ll just keep getting Spider-Man like movies. We keep arguing that someone’s interpretation of a different persons imagination didn’t match what we imagined it would be. Just think about it.
