Hey, you're the one sounding like the college-age kid crying for interesting stories and how you don't care about merchandising or corporate salaries.
Why would i?
Why would i care if this makes Disney or Marvel gobs of money?
I don't care. That doesn't affect me
I need interesting comics and movies
Spider-Man could become as well known as Mickey Mouse. But I dont buy Mickey Mouse comics/movies/watch his tv shows. It's irrelevant to my life whether Mickey mouse earns 1 cent a year or 50 billion dollars. It's irrelebant to me if Joe Q and Stan Lee own so much Marvel stock, they made a billion dollars.
What matters to me is how the characters are handled, not whether they wind up on more lunch boxes or become known in Zimbabwe.
That doesn't affect me.
