    Default Marvel Discussion (2019)

    https://www.warhammer-community.com/...mepage-post-1/
    So I am here to deliver the news about Marvel and 40k team-up for licensed comics.
    Probably stand-alone, so no "Avengers vs. Chaos" or something.
    But considering Marvel's lackluster runs, I am concerned and wanted opinions WITHOUT the typical and vocal fans.

    From what limited information is in the post, it looks like little more than a distribution deal. I wouldnít worry too much about it, at least not until we get more info. This is something Marvelís done for awhile. They got deals for books like Enderís Game and Dunk and Egg, and while the quality was iffy at the start it seems pretty good at least from the few Iíve read. I know theyíve also spread out to become distributors for Riot Gamesí comics. Where, as far as I understand, the writing is done in how by Riot writers and itís only the page design and art that Marvel has their hand in.

    Iíd expect much the same from this.

    Well, that is what I hope.
    Consider that Marvel's own 40k writer, Abnett is out in DC and will be busy with Annihilation as I stated before.

    I suspect I'm gonna regret it but...what do you mean by "lackluster runs"?

    Well, Riveraís America Chavez run, which has been lambasted by older fans from Gillenís Young Avengers run.
    Like attempt at being hip and new yet lacking canonical knowledge and poor story plotting. Also didnít help that news outside of comic fans assume that she is the new one and never heard of Young Avengers.
    Though I know what you mean by ďregretĒ since many of those critics of ďassumed to be rational critic yet lack comic lore and mannersĒ tend to conflate that with Kamala Khan despite actually better written (Coates can have flaws but at least he isnít Hudson). Fellows at scans-daily hate them just for nuance.
    Also Civil War 2, the Inhuman debacle, currently unsatisfactory Marvel Cosmos Run, and having a comic franchise known for superhero's "deaths" being resurrected out of "optimistic status quo" contracted by a company known for bleak, grim-dark universe where a theocratic imperialist human empire is the nominal "good guy" becuase other side are genocidal robots, treachorous space elves, depraved space elves, psychopathic traitors, and bloodthirsty green fungus.
