Ever look at the "reporters" of mainstream sycophantic comic book websites and think to yourself, "I want to be like them?" Well, you're in luck, pal, because Marvel has just announced a new "loyalty program" that will let you, yes you, live the highfalutin life of a comic book journalist! It's called "Marvel Insider," and it will let readers see what it's like to be an influential internet personality whose job is to convince people to buy Marvel's products - just like a comics journalist!

The way it works is easy and almost exactly like the way websites such as CBR, Newsarama, and write their articles:

1. Join the club.

2. Earn points by doing things that benefit Marvel, such as getting news directly from their official website and sharing the good word about Marvel with others on social media.

3. Get rewards.

Now, you don't have to get a job at a comic book website and work your way up the ladder until you get to repost press releases and act as a surrogate for a major comic book publisher! You can do it right now!

"Being a Marvel Insider worked for me, and it can work for your too!" said spokesman Albert Ching, Managing Editor of CBR, though he appeared to be blinking a distress message in morse code while grinning uncomfortably.
