MarvelTVNews responds to Bleeding Cool's attacks from yesterday morning about the Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes Controversy.
Yesterday, tabloid journalist and internet hooligan Rich Johnston published an expose on the website MarvelTVNews, accusing the website of being the product of a serious personal vendetta by a disgruntled Spectacular Spider-Man fan named Nabil Elmjati. The website posted news last week about the cancellation of Avengers: Earth's Mightiest heroes which was picked up by all the major comic book and geek websites, including the Outhouse, who copped to being fooled in exchange for sweet unique hits from daddy Johnston's twitter account.
In a piece filled with hilariously broken English, MarvelTVNews has issued a response titled "Responding to the lies that Bleedingcool published in their article named "the boy who hated Ultimate Spider-man"!" which we will post below (my comments in red, because I'm a dick):
Checking the news today i was shocked to find out Marveltvnews making the first page on bleedingcool, in a blatantly written article, dubbed "The boy who hated Ultimate Spider-man"., written by Rich Johnston.Read the original article here if the website is not taken down by Marvel Seal Team Six before you read this. In all likelihood, the show probably really has been canceled, as Jeph Loeb hates everything good and Marvel has been really elusive about the show for months now, but, hey, drama is fun.
It was blatantly written. As opposed to miraculously placed directly on the internet by God.
Also, Bleeding Cool is not a newspaper. It's a website. There is no "First Page."
The article goes on to claim that the Marvel TV News site is ran and owned by Strugler and they mention his personal name "Nabil" as the brain manipulating all the hate against Ultimate Spider-man.
"Brain?" You're putting words in their mouths there.
First things first: Ultimate Spider-man does not need a master mind to ruin its "stellar" reputation. You can visit any forums and you can see so many fans hating on the show. Now unless struger has created the hundreds of usernames and posted with each one of them (which he did NOT).
Well, we can't argue with this, but why did you leave us hanging? "Unless he created the usernames," what?!
second: Strugler, whom his real name is Nabil, is a friendly person who allowed us to publish his reviews from comicbookmovie. HE IS NOT RUNNING THIS SITE. We took some reviews he wrote and published them here, with his consent.
Well, this is easily verified by checking out the whois registration... oh, it's been marked private. Well, case closed then.
Third: Strugler did not create the Jeph loeb facebook page. The Loeb page was online for years now, and he had nothing to do with fans finding it and expressing their criticism.
And you certainly can't find evidence of this on Twitter, because Strugler's account has been deleted for completely unrelated reasons.
Fourth: Marvel TV news was made to bring the fans the latest news about Marvel television, it was not created to fuel hate on a show that is already been criticized all over the net.
Well, we're not gonna take issue with that because we talk tons of shit here at The Outhouse, but come on, at least cop to it bro.
fifth: Bleeding Cool has ABSOLUTELY NO RIGHT, on framing a guy, posting his real FULL NAME without checking their facts nor contacting the person first.
You're not running WikiLeaks. You'll be fine.
Sixth: According to Bleeding Cool, Marvel apparently told them that there were no leaks regarding Avengers Assemble, and that it was all fabricated news. even though days later, Marvel Confirmed that there is an Avengers Assemble cartoon and that, as we reported way before, will replace Avengers EMH. ???
Marvel is definitely not talking to Bleeding Cool. Bleeding Cool is like the Dennis the Menace to Marvel's Mr. Wilson, with all their spoiling of Marvel's comic con announcements.
I would like to issue an apology for causing Strugler to be banned from Comicbookmovie for the sole reason to have helped us take this site online.
He's welcome to join us here at The Outhouse. We will put him on protected poster status.
