Fans of Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes have started an online petition to protest the cancellation of the show.
The following article contains opinions. If you are easily offended by opinions, please click away to something fluffier now.
Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes may be successful in the ratings, even moreso than Ultimate Spider-Man, which was just renewed for a second season. It may be beloved by people of all ages, especially longtime comic book fans that enjoy seeing their favorite characters and stories treated with respect on the small screen. It may be a very well-done show that this reporter personally finds is very popular with his three young children, creating a new generation of superhero fans in a way the comic industry has failed to do for two decades.
It doesn't matter. Disney doesn't give a shit, and neither does Jeph "Ghengis Khan" Loeb. Do fans of Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes think that Disney and Jeph "Emperor Palpatine" Loeb have not considered that people like Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes and don't want it to be cancelled? They are aware. They don't care. Because they know that you, the hardcore superhero fan, will watch whatever bullshit superhero cartoon they decide to make in its place, no matter how much you bitch on the internet.
So they will produce whatever they feel is most likely to make the most money for shareholders, which is not a quality program that satisfies fans both new and longtime, young and old, but a program that ties in with movie and toy franchises to convince more people to spend dollars on Disney products right now, regardless of whether or not it is good for the property in the long-term.
So, while The Outhouse appreciates the drive of fans to seek 7500 signatures in an online petition, we ask you to recognize the futility of your gesture. If you want to send a message to Disney, don't watch Ultimate Spider-Man, Avengers Assemble, or Hulk: Agents of SMASH. Leave your fanboy obsession unsatisfied for a few months and show that you demand to be treated with respect as a fanbase. Anything else just produces tears that power Disney's corporate doomsday device, and Jeph "Stalin 2" Loeb will simply punish you by writing more shitty Wolverine stories in his spare time.
Thanks for listening.
