C2E2: Marvel Bans Jim Starlin From Writing Any More Thanos/Adam Warlock Stories

The creator's livelihood is threatened thanks to editorial mandates from Marvel Comics.



Source: Facebook

Superstar creator Jim Starlin has made a legendary career for himself by writing basically the same Thanos and Adam Warlock stories over and over again for more than thirty years, but, thanks to a recent editorial decision at Marvel, Starlin may no longer be able to do what he loves and get paid for it. From a Facebook post showing off some new Savage Hulk art:

Just finished penciling and scripting my four-issue story arc (#7-10) for the Savage Hulk Series. Not sure what I'm going to do now, seeing as how I can't do any further Thanos/Adam Warlock stories, as was the plan


 

 

After Starlin's fan started asking why he's not allowed to basically write The Inifinity Gauntlet over and over again, he elaborated:

This time, after I brought Adam Warlock back from the dead in the Infinity Revelation, someone at Marvel anonymously put a corporation-wide-no-use restriction on the character, effectively putting the brakes on the on-going plans I had for him and the Titan.

 

Oooh! The drama! An anonymous restriction! Creator interference! Who at Marvel has a secret grudge against Jim Starlin!

Actually, the whole thing probably has more to do with Marvel's plans for Thanos after the Guardians of the Galaxy movie, because they are going to need him to be available for multiple five-issue mini-series that tell the Thanos stories readers have been clamoring to read for decades, such as what Thanos was like as an emo teenager... Now that we think about it, can we please just have The Infinity Gauntlet again?

Every Marvel story seems like it's a parody at first but then it isn't.

Is this our new status quo?

If I joke about JJJ becoming the new Iron Man, is Marvel going to really do it ohpleasegod

This is what happens when Starlin signed whatever he did when he was able to prove he had created Thanos before Marvel could claim ownership. Didn't bother to dictate any terms obviously.

seems appropriate to post here:

Spider-Man Now Has a JDate Profile

Andrew Garfield Says Spider-Man Is Jewish, so JDate Made Him a Free Profile

As dates go, this guy's a real swinger.

In an interview with Time Out London, Andrew Garfield reveals that, besides having the heightened senses and powers of a spider, his character in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is Jewish.

"Peter Parker is not a simple dude," Garfield explains. "He ums and ahs about his future because he's neurotic. It's a defining feature."

Garfield, whose father is Jewish, added that he was including himself in his assessment: "I have that in me, for sure."

So far, the actor's remarks have caused little uproar in the Jewish community. In fact, Jewish dating site JDate went so far as to make a free profile for the superpowered teen, and shared it with PEOPLE below.

Who knows? If things don't work out with Gwen Stacy, maybe Peter Parker could find happiness with a nice Jewish girl.


TheAmazingSpiderMan

Single, Man Seeking Women
18 years old from Queens, New York

Have kids: None
Want kids: Yes
Height: 5’10” (178 cm)
Religion: Culturally Jewish but not practicing
Smoke: Non-Smoker
Education: High School
Occupation: Superhero
Synagogue: Will tell you later


About Me: I’m a pretty cool dude. You may have heard of me in the New York papers as a masked vigilante or seen me swinging around in my red and blue, slightly uncomfortable, spandex uniform. My favorite holiday is Purim, it just suits me with the whole dressing up in costume thing. I don’t say much in person but I’m kind of an awesome superhero. I catch thieves like flies! Don’t be deceived by my lean figure because I have serious super strength and agility. I can carry like 173 times my own weight. Can your last boyfriend do that?

My perfect first date: I’m kind of a romantic. I say we start with a nice Shabbat dinner and then lay on my web and star gaze. Of course, I’d love to finish the evening with the perfect upside down kiss.

My life and ambitions: My motto is, “With Great Power, Comes Great Responsibility,” and I intend to use my power to protect the people of New York from falling cars, Dr. Octopus and The Green Goblin. But, I want to share my adventures with someone who gets my spidey senses tingling! Don’t worry, babe, I’ll protect you.

On our first date remind me to tell you the story about… when I fought a lizard. It was epic.

The coolest places I’ve visited: I’ve been to every spot in New York City, but the coolest is between the top of the Empire State Building (not the top floor, like, on the top of that pointy thing) or the view from chillin’ on the Statue of Liberty’s head.

For fun, I like to… Swing between buildings, walk on ceilings, work on my web weaving, bake homemade challah and fight bullies.

You should definitely message me if you: Aren’t grossed out by bugs, specifically spiders, like adventure, aren’t afraid of heights and are ready to get caught in the web!

Well with Thanos being stuck in Thane's "Amber field" until Hickman decides to get him out of it, I would assume it would make sense to not let other writers use him.

As for Warlock - Maybe the "company-wide ban" is because Marvel already has specific plans for him?

jefprice wrote:Any truth to the rumors that Thanos will be vanishing from Marvel comics for over a year, and that "the rug has been pulled out" from under Jim Starlin and his Warlock-Thanos tale? This is supposedly from Jim himself according to a few sources. I spoke with a friend who was formally a well respected comic blogger who claims to have received this info "from the horses mouth himself" Mr Jim. This is as was told to him, because Warlock and Thanos are in the films and Disney-Marvel are hiding them..


brevoort wrote:Your friend really needs to get a better talking horse to listen to.

No, there’s no truth to this. Thanos will be appearing as much as ever in our books.

This is all really about something else, something much smaller that Jim probably shouldn’t even have taken public on his Facebook page. But he did, so there you go. But it’s grown and changed and become so exaggerated as the information passes from one “well-respected comics blogger” to another that it bears no resemblance to the truth.
