Sure, they all do stupid stuff.
The thing is, though, while Marvel's regularly in the news for stupid stuff, it's not always
I mean, yeah, the Fantastic Four movie sounds pretty horrible
, but that's FOX's fault, not Marvel's.
And it's not Marvel's fault that some lady saw Falcon engage in consentual sexual relations with a 23 year old and decided to call it "statutory rape" in a couple of articles
And then there's the "Lady Thor"
thing, which seems like pandering to the PC crowd and a backwards approach to diversity in comics... BUT it's being written by the same guy (Aaron) who's been knocking it out of the park lately. Maybe it's Angela. Maybe it's Valkyrie. I dunno.
It might not sound good on paper (like Superior Spider-Man), but it might be good (like Superior Spider-Man) and we all know it'll be undone the next time he's in a movie (again, like Superior Spider-Man).
So, yeah, a Marvel Clock might work, but it probably won't look like DC's. Marvel (luckily) doesn't have the same history of pissing off the creators, firing them in e-mails, listening to them fire off on Twitter, etc. (It DOES happen, but not nearly as often as with DC)
