Exactly. Don't talk about it. Write it into your next screenplay for a Disney animated kids movie. And be sure to put in a song about it.

You reminded me of a Disney movie James Gunn made where a guy impregnated as many women as possible all so he could consume his kids. It was called Guardians of the galaxy 2.

And say what the company wants them to say.

The name didn’t ring a bell so I had to look him up. Now I’d like to see a good remake of Swiss Family Robinson.

This guy was vulgar and insulting for a couple of years. They surely didn’t want him to say those things. They just had enough. Specifically, this Marvel editor.

His mistake was not putting a song about it in the movie. Or making Star Lord a princess who finds a handsome stranger and goes on adventures, likely involving his hair or cold things or lions. Still, maybe a raccoon and a tree counts?

:lol: :lol: :lol:

And this is why I don't follow comic book types; they nearly always disappoint me. I liked PAD back in the day, even apologized to him once for saying he did something to PG, (which he did, but he informed me it was on editorial order---that weird and ill-defined weakness to "raw unprocessed materials" thing). Then....well, you probably know what happened with him. Then it was EVS, I liked his art. Then years later, the internets revealed....other stuff about him. I'm sure there are plenty of great people in the industry....but that bit about keeping your heroes at a distance lest you find out what they're really like comes to mind.

You get idiots like this who completely lack self-awareness and just are the worst.

That's hilarious. Especially the bit where the guy says self righteously “Be good to each other..." like he's some sort of nice guy wishing for peace after saying the things he said. Again, lack of self awareness for a guy who comes across as obsessed and desperately bitter.

Next up, Dark Horse has to fire P Craig Russell from American Gods, because he did the comic version of Wagner's Ring Cycle.
