Look, it's all marketing by people who seem to understand that the market is more diverse but also don't like taking risks at all.

Basically it's that Spider-Man, Batman, Captain America, Thor, Superman... Pretty much any superhero with a recognizable IP and character has reached market saturation. The target audience of whatever age to whatever age who happen to be mostly white dudes but not exclusively is pretty much at saturation. You're not going to be pulling large margins out of something already saturated. If you want to expand, you need to reach out to black people, hispanic people, women.. You know, people in a possibly different target audience.

However they also don't like the risk of introducing a new IP, so they just take recognizable ones and try to market them at new audiences by giving the character a gimmick. Eventually it fails and it's back to business as usual until they try again.

If you're just going to tell Spiderman stories with someone who's just a different race or gender than Spiderman, what's the point? Might as well just have Peter Parker. But it's not like white people can't also have interesting racial or gendered stories. Steven Rodgers or Tony Stark wouldn't make sense as characters if they themselves were different races or genders.

Steve is your quintessential New Yorker, and the diversity quota is actually filled very well by the Howling Commandos: a diverse cast of badasses who represent the multi-ethnic origins and histories of the people that make up America. This is significant because of Captain America's inextricable connection to... well; America. Tony Stark is a similar story, but I'm running out of characters to get into it.

Basically, a main character's race or gender isn't just incidental when it's a factor in something. It can flesh out the character and actually lend itself to the story, rather than just being incidental while you tell the exact same stories as the regular character.

On the contrary, I think the sort of flip-flopping they're trying to do works much better for a character like Iron Man. Someone whose backstory is loosely defined, but not really dependant on anything, and furthermore gets his powers from tech rather than another source, which makes it easy to have it be a legacy character of sorts.

Stuff like just randomly making Thor or Captain America women makes less sense, since their circumstances and backstories heavily put them as one gender. Having Tony Stark die and Pepper take the Iron Man suit in his place is the type of thing that could be what they're going for without needing to jump through hoops to justify it.

Actually, THEIR comic sales are doing poorly. Selling 30k or even 10k (individual copies) is now considered a success. Before that, anything selling under 100k was considered a failure. They regularly sold in the millions in their heyday, stuff like 30's Superman and 40's Captain America. A lot of indie comics do better.

Some of the most prolifically selling comics are actually marketed at young girls, and are sold in regular bookstores rather than comic shots. Seriously, she takes up three slots on the top ten for yearly top comic sales. Nobody's ever heard of the author before and quite frankly DC and Marvel don't know how to compete. One of the big reasons for their desperate push into their cinematic universes is their need to abandon comics altogether because they can't manage it.

Initiatives like "New 52" drown their own market in terrible product. Shock tactic releases like the Captain America hydra thing try and borrow off of the success of The Death of Superman, but learn none of its lessons. They've been doing this for years, and basically made their IP inaccessible to the general market, stagnating their properties and titles.

I think Marvel and DC are just suffocating under their own history at this point. The MCU and the Arrowverse (and the DCCU if it weren't awful) show us that the characters and concepts are still totally marketable to wide audiences, but no one wants to read comics that are bogged down by like 80 years of continuity. With the movies and TV series they got to wipe the slate clean, and it worked wonders.

Tony Stark is kind of poorly defined because, before Robert Downey Jr. took the role in Iron Man, nobody really cared about Iron Man. People knew he was a jerk, and that he got drunk and did stupid things, but he was a B-List hero rather than a mainliner.

Anyway, what little backstory he had or has is pretty solidly criticism of the straight white male societal construct. His daddy issues stem not just from his father's murder, but from his father's own abusive treatment of him. If he ever showed any kind of weakness or effeminate tendencies, his father would strike him and tell him to man up. Also his father had him very late in his own life, almost as an afterthought, like he was too focused on himself that he forgot to leave a legacy, and just knocked up some woman who popped out a child for an heir. Tony drinks because his father beat him, basically, and his suits become an extension of this; a physical manifestation of giving himself emotional armor to hide inside of. It's why he acts so aloof, evasive, and detached all the time, and hides behind his humor and biting sarcasm: it was beaten out of him, a criticism of masculinity that encourages hiding deeper feelings and not opening up to vulnerability.

Anyway, it's not so established in movie canon, so it's easier to do with what people know of Tony. But we also can't have him die because RDJ is a funny actor and people go to movies to see him. He doesn't mind being Iron Man, I don't think. He was a burnout who was a risky choice for a risky movie and blew that shit open, making him an A-lister.

That character is introduced as a psychotic rapist assassin, he has an handful appearances where he's either a joke or an willing asshole.
Then during the final fight he's supposed to just be filler but got a really cool fight with martian /k/ girl and we got his backstory in the middle of it, like it happens in manga.
He was a cyborg showman specialised in stopping bullets with his bare hands, his very young son got tricked into shooting him by surprise to prove it wasn't a trick, but instead his dad got his brain fucked up.
Previous pic is how he wake up. He then fuck of like pic related.
But his inner monologue in the last fight reveal that the only vaguely coherent thought remaining in his totally broken mind was: a father wish to validate his son "my dad is the strongest!" childish belief long after he grew out of it.
It's actually something that come back regularly in the serie: finding out there is one final little spark of humanity even in the most fucked up thing. It doesn't excuse anything or solve anything, but it's there and it could have been more.

The idea is not that white, straight men don't have a story to tell, or a unique narrative that can give them color and character and life. The idea is that everyone has these stories, and they're not only interesting, but they're stories people would like to hear and explore. And they can be explored not only on their own, but in the contexts of other characters.

We like seeing the validation of our own stories written large in media, and we like watching stories about other people because we like to learn new things. The point of stories is to create an emotional connection, and we connect emotionally with things and contexts and relationships that we identify with on many levels, racial, sexual, and gendered experiences being among them, as well as societal circumstance, situational context, economic status, and even just basic humanity.

I am probably wrong about some of it, but we really don't have much of a context for a conversation on race or gender. We've got fanatics on both sides draining the air out of the room and reasonable people become unwilling to engage in meaningful exploration of these topics because it's so charged. We talk over each other and past each other and make assumptions because there's no interactive dialogue, and we all suffer because of it. We become unwilling to discern what the truth even is, each side declaring itself right and their opponents wrong.

But fiction can help us with that, and can encourage meaningful discussion by seriously exploring these contexts in a way that forges an emotional connection and makes us want to explore more, even if it's in the context of an action movie or superhero comic that's just a fun ride without that deeper interpretation.

The question is "can both parties give consent?" If the answer is no in one (but not both) parties, it's rape.

For example: I can't have sex with a retard even if she wants me to because she can't give consent. I'd need her mom/dad to say yes before I could. Same with a drunk/passed out/etc. person.

Likewise, if I'm wasted and agree to have sex with a girl who's completely sober, or if she has sex with me while I'm passed out, that's (technically) rape.

However, if we're both wasted/retards, it's not really rape because neither of us can give consent.

Ironically I've seen that happen before. Apparently being single mother with a tard of a daughter makes it hard to get by so the woman whored her kid for some extra cash. I'm kinda surprised someone actually wanted to hit that, but apparently some people would.

Also not sure if that's a thing everywhere but in my country elderly people can lose the ability to make legal decisions (usually on medical decision due to alzheimers or elderly dementia) in which case their nearest relative becomes legal guardian. The mental image of gramps asking me for permission because he has one of his brighter days and remembers what that thing down there is for me chuckle.

>However, if we're both wasted/retards, it's not really rape because neither of us can give consent.

Just read Dark Cybertron. I swear EVERY time they jump back to the Lost Light crew it's nothing but wall to wall comedy as this band of bickering idiots who are sometimes cars struggle to scrounge enough competence together to actually survive and maybe save the day.

I really can't wait to see what happened to them after they dealth with the DJD.

>women and non-white people aren't interested in a character

>change race and sex of character
>white men upset with the change are called racist/sexist

The problem with the "progression" all these lefties celebrate is that it essentially portrays women and non-white people as weak and in need of a hand-out. White men can take whatever shit gets thrown at them, because white men are awesome. Progressive.

I don't quite follow that logic.

That said, though, I'd rather see minority characters in comics either take over D-list identities most people don't care about (like what they did for Blue Beetle), or as new heroes.

This is literally the opposite of what Marvel was supposed to be all about. Legacy characters are the worst sort of garbage, and they we're primarily DC's bag.

To put it simply, by considering the needs and wants of others, you're acknowledging that they HAVE needs and wants. This is insulting because an "good" person would be an invincible emotional juggernaut whose sheer fortitude would render all your actions irrelevant. Therefore, being considerate of others is inherently offensive.

Usually, this logic isn't used by the alleged victims, but by a third party who hates progressiveness for their own reasons and is searching for a moral high ground from which to look down on it.

It works for the Japanese. It helps when your shitty comic that you want to axe isn't entangled with your other ones.

No. They pick up a product when you have a few chapters to show, some plans for future development, and it's not shit. Then they run it. Then they look at the survey for each issue to see how popular it is. If it's popular enough, it stays. Otherwise, it gets axed in the near future. They throw in one-shots as well, and some of those go on to be made into a series.

That sounds like exactly what I just described.

In your example, they do nothing but shoulder the publication costs, and whatever they pay the creators, which I assume isn't much until they make it big.

>> No.49805394

They get payed per page, extra for color pages, and get royalties for sold volumes and merchandise. More or less, yes, they only shoulder the publication costs. They pay pretty well, but you have to pay for your assistants, supplies, and miscellaneous expenses using that money. Yes, you don't get payed that well until you're popular and can draw people into reading the comics, but what the fuck do you expect? Why should you get payed well regardless of how shit your product is?
