Reposting hysterical Tumblr reactions to Avengers Arena

Postby Punchy » Mon Oct 15, 2012 4:02 pm

There is nothing funnier than the butthurt Avengers Arena has caused on Tumblr, witness:

fuck this gay comics company

also

radiation doesn’t work like that.jpg

why would you even spoiler a death of one of the most beloved characters in your death book at a fuckin convention


Every Time I Read Something That Mentions Avengers Arena... I feel like ripping the writer’s head off. And the book hasn’t even fucking started yet.

I shouldn’t WANT to ‘pound’ the writer. I should be wanting to congratulate them for good stories that don’t rely on the fucking tired concept of killing a character to generate drama.

Thank God there’s a Young Avengers book to balance out Arena’s sure-to-be bullshit


what if my suicide note just said

“avengers arena”

and nothing else


Holy what the fuck Marvel why are you killing off Hazmat ARE YOU FUCKING STUPID EVERYBODY FUCKING LOVES HER MOTHERFUCKING METTLE LOVES HER YOU PIECE OF SHIT FIRST YOU CANCEL OFF AVENGERS ACADEMY AND NOW YOU’RE GONNA KILL HER OFF OH GOD WHAT HAPPENS TO METTLE EVEN IF HE DIES OR LIVES HE’S GONNA BE MISERABLE AS FUCK OH FUCK YOU MARVEL HOW THE HELL ARE YOU GOING TO WRITE THEM OFF IN ARENA WHAT THE FUCK IT IS THE MOST BLATANT AND POORLY DESCRIBED “HOMAGE” TO BATTLE ROYALE AND HUNGER GAMES WHAT THE FUCKING FUCK YOU COULD’VE ATLEAST KILLED HER OFF IN A HEROIC SENSE IN A DIFFERENT ARC THAT ISN’T BULLSHIT AND ACTUALLY HAS SOME SUBSTANCE TO THE STORY INSTEAD OF PUTTING A BUNCH OF CHARACTERS IN MURDERWORLD FOR NO REASON AND “LOL ITS A DEATHMATCH ERRYONE’S GON DIE EXCEPT ONE PERSON LOLOLOLOL” FUCK I SWEAR MARVEL IF YOU KILL OFF FINESSE SHITTILY AS WELL I WILL BURN THE WORLD DOWN IN ANGER AND MORE ANGER

The art for Arena’s pretty good though



...Well that's awkward.
I was thinking for a minute[I do that occasionally], and I just realized that of the original class of Avengers Academy, the only ones in this deathtrap Avengers Arena are the non-white ones — the Japanese girl, the African American boy[who got his skin stripped off but he is/was black], and the Hispanic boy. I mean, Juston and X-23 are both white, but they were added in to AA later and appeared in other shit previously.

…..Now I’m NOT saying Hopeless is trying to get rid of the nonwhite characters, or that he’s racist, but uh THIS IS AWKWARD OK.


Brevoort you’re really, really being a dick right now

Like you are just being a jerk


It's amazing.

forget Make Mine, Marvel, more like Kill Me Now, Marvel.


WHY IS THIS A THING?!

X-23 wins, because of the healing factor.

THERE IS NO NEED FOR THIS SERIES. THIS IS BANDWAGONING although the logo is pretty neat BUT SERIOUSLY WHYYYYYYY?!

I’ll buy it regardless.


Wow.

Marvel.

No.

You are not cancelling Uncanny X-Force and Avengers Academy for bullshit like this.


ALSO

can we appreciate the fact that this crap series is being written by one Mr Dennis Hopeless?

How appropriate.


Okay, I lied. One more post.

This book, this Avengers Arena book, nothing good can come of it. It doesn’t matter how well written it is. We know characters are going to do die.

So the best solution I think is for people to not talk about it. Don’t buy it, don’t download it, don’t even illegally download it, don’t even post panels to rage against it. Don’t give it any press whatsoever.

Just don’t do anything. Don’t give it the time of day. Sometimes the only way to be heard is to be silent.

Screw this!
SCREW THIS!
SCREW THIS CRAP!!!

I didn’t get into comics for this continual mind game of “YOUR FAVORITE CHARACTER IS GONNA DIE!” You want to play that game Marvel? KILL WOLVERINE, SPIDER-MAN AND IRON MAN! Yeah, see how those fans like it?! What? They don’t like it and your company is going under? WELL CONGRATULATIONS MORONS!!! NOW YOU KNOW WHAT IT FEELS LIKE TO MESS WITH FANS!

This and Thunderbolts, the first was a punch in the gun, this is a slap in the face!

THIS
IS
AWFUL!

This is some Arcade fan jacking off to the thought of some SAW like torture porn!
Screw this! SCREW THIS!!! I’m honestly done with Marvel once Marvel now starts. There is nothing for me now but continual torture!

SCREW THIS AND SCREW THE MORONS WHO ENCOURAGED THINGS TO GET TO THIS POINT!


THIS IS HORRIBLE!!!

Oh no, how dare people judge a book based on the way the people who (presumably) want them to buy it have been marketing it!

Fucking seriously? If Marvel wants me to buy a book, they can try selling it to me in a way that implies they don’t think I get my kicks watching kids off each other. Until they do, fuck ‘em — it’s not my job to make excuses for their rotten marketing.


I don’t mean to pass judgement, but a few thoughts:

God he reads like he’s got no idea how to be interviewed and is still trying to play coy with revealing details
““Kill or be killed” is pretty much the perfect allegory for high school.” No, Mr. Hopeless, no it is not. I loathe it and it STILL ISN’T.
“Arcade is done being a joke. He chose these kids for a reason but it isn’t one he’s going to be explaining. Let’s just say he has some experience putting together an entertaining death match.” You interview like Bendis writes dialogue, none of these sentences fully connect to the next.
[on Darkhawk being the oldest and most powerful/experienced character] ”Look at it this way, a truck driver has the “power” to take his semi onto the sidewalk and start running people down. That doesn’t mean it would be easy to convince him to do it. Power isn’t the end all be all advantage in a death match.” I get what your going for but the metaphor fell apart for me, bro.
“From there we explore a lot of different things. Alliances. Betrayals. Trust and mistrust. Sex and love and sacrifice. Like I said, this is pretty much high school except here they get to kill their rivals.” Again, what high school did you go to.
“Like all games, this one will end. But we’re telling a long-form story within that. These characters are going to be trapped for a while.” Read: If they’re not dead at the end we’re CERTAINLY not writing any stories with them for ten years.
Yes, they’ll be missed. Yes, people will come looking. But looking for someone and finding them are two very different things.” No, really, I had no idea ‘looking” and “finding were not synonyms.’

Also: forget Make Mine, Marvel, more like Kill Me Now, Marvel.

Oh, I have one too, but I treat it more like a regular blog, rather than posting gifs or freaking out about Kid Loki or Legend Of Korra.

I was on the fence about buying this before, but ironically this bitching will be what convinces me to support it with my $$$.

Tumblr scares me. It honestly scares me.

I used to have a Livejournal back the late 90s and early 2000s but it was nothing like Tumblr. That shit is just wrong.

I'm sure glad this thread had spoiler warnings on it so I wouldn't read those quotes and learn about the death of a character OH WAIT THERE WERE NO SPOILER WARNINGS. :smt013
