    As far as character announcements go this is likely the worse they have ever done. A cyromancer who can only make snow flakes and a kid acting as google maps is really lame and I can’t see them limiting them to only those things.

    Safe space seems fine though depending on how they write him a mental black limiting the use of powers fits in after what speed ball went though. B negative also seems fine though trailblazer seems incredibly bland.

    I think safesapce, besides the name and and the low effort character design (the more detailed version doesn't look that bad) is probably the only one here I could somewhat get behind, though the limit of "barriers only for others" seems extremely artificial. The vamp is just a vamp, the character has already written itself a dozen times over by the first sketch of the concept art. The cringe-inducing name doesn't help that. In fact the only saving grace for me would be if the character's character arc would revolve around everyone calling out his dumb name and him getting over his emo phase by the end of it.

    The backpack girl, as the potential focus point of the story, is just flat out weird. I just don't see how randomly pulling out deus ex machinas from a deluxe bag of holding is going to be interesting or a super power in the first place. Even if the bag is limited to her alone, this is pure comedic relief character territory. Not to mention the character design looks bizarre. Fatso who likes to charge ahead is like an oxymoron in the first place and I'm not exactly in good shape myself. Drawing her with a tighgap the size of her head while giving her the silhouette of a sea-cow also puts her more into weird fetish territory or desperate wishfullfilment. Then there is the whole angle about being too young for doing vigilante work.. I mean.. ??? I might have missed it, but is the SRA back in place?

    Oh, he most certainly was and still is. But hey, at least that's one character that is supposed to be one, instead of being a dick that the writer insists on being in the right and moral and whatnot.

    I’d agree that conceptually safe space is the strongest even if he suffers a lacklustre design and an awful name. I’d also agree that I’m not sure why trail blazer is a thing at all her design sucks her “power” sucks she has nothing going for her to make her interesting.

    I’m also incredibly bias to B negative as he looks like he stepped straight out of the Danny ketch ghost rider books with ghost rider being my favourite hero and the ketch books being my favourite version of him.

    This also isn’t the SRA it’s some new Kamala law only effecting teens because of the champions blundering some Stuff.

    It seems to have multiple meanings, but one of those and the one I have always heard is derogatory toward fat people. Fat people's thighs banging, grinding and slapping together creating the sound of thunder or some such silliness. Would make perfect sense for this character running into battle with the sound of thunderous thighs...

    Who are their villains? 'White Privilege' and 'Toxic Masculinity'?

    I swear these new heroes were created by a bunch of middle aged white men in a board meeting in a 'hello my fellow kids' moment

    I am sure there were good intentions. But the execution is damn near laughable cringe. Wanna create non binary characters, fine, how about hire some actual non binary writers and artists

    I know Marvel has pissed off the LGBTQ community with this and that's a mistake when you are pissing off the people you are trying to cater to :P



    To be fair some of those were good and executed well within the terms of the story. X-23 as Wolverine was one of the best comics around at the time and was fitting considering Wolverine was dead and they literally built Laura up so well over time. I enjoyed Sam Wilson as Captain America too.

    My girlfriend enjoyed Jane Foster as Thor, I wasnt that fond of it but I never really liked Thor comics in general lol.

    The only ones that were pulled off badly were Riri Williams filling in for Iron Man as Ironheart and Amadeus Cho as Hulk nothing against Cho I love his character but he sucked within the confines of this Hulk run. :P
    But their sales already made a declining industry decline further.

    actually the industry hit a new high in 2018 and only had a slight dip in 2017
    Comics and graphic novel sales hit a new high in 2018, according to a new joint estimate by ICv2’s Milton Griepp and Comichron’s John Jackson Miller. Total comics and graphic novel sales to consumers in the U.S. and Canada were approximately $1.095 billion in 2018, an $80 million increase over sales in 2017. The increase was due to gains in book channel and digital sales, and the inclusion of an estimate for U.S. and Canada sales through crowdfunding sites for the first time.

    “After a brief downturn in 2017, the market bounced back last year,” Miller said. “Popular releases helped right the ship in comics shops, even as other sales avenues made significant gains."

    I cannot speak for everyone but my main reason for no longer buying Marvel was the over saturation of large scale crossover events, it had nothing to do with the comics, although the comics themselves were affected because that halted character development because this large scale event was happening. When a comic could get into an interesting story it would then have to be put on hold completely distracting you from this character you were trying to get into. Its not fun and its horrible for new readers. The comics were fine for the most part, I just wish they had time to breath.

    Lord yes. God I wish I could put say a 5 year moratorium on any new large scale crossover event at both Marvel and DC. I'd allow the occasional small crossover, if you want Batman and Superman to have a 4 issue crossover, sure, if you want Spiderman and Black Panther to have a 6 issue story arc, okay. But for the most part I'd have them spend five years writing good books, developing characters, building up the current stuff, and then, if they could pull that off, THEN I'd allow them to do one "big" crossover.

    its okay, someone updated the look of snowflake, to be more in line with a 90s design.

    Currently listening to a podcast with Nerdrotic and Heelvsbabyface.

    I love heelvsbabyface, he's just roasting marvel comics right now in just saying what needs to be said. And he wants the comic industry to survive, which is now struggling to keep comic book stores open.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x7AZq_U5Jsk
    was looking for some white noise so I watched it and Jesus the lack of self awareness on these people. at one point heelvsbabyface says that kids have to go though all kinds of confusing stuff around puberty and its hard because they don't know if there parents will accept them or that they have interest that society might not like so they cant express them self's, and then in the next breath says marvel should stop trying to force it and that teens should just bottle every thing up till there adults and let his fester.

    I'm really not sure how some one could have such a good understanding of what people go though and why they want to make content to lighten that on others, and then comply miss the point.

    Fixed Snowlake looks a lot better, she looks like a comics hero actually capable of attracting some readers if being put on the book's cover

    That backpack doesn't hold any deus ex machina within, it's just full of high-sugar snacks. Nothing more, nothing less.

    my partner is nb and they hate these new characters.

    usually im all for inclusion but this looks like it received no input from anyone in the actual community they were trying to attract and even the FUCKING CREATOR keeps calling snowflake she in the intro video.

    one of the main things about being nb? nb's go by they/them.



    these new characters look EXACTLY like the parody bullshit anti-sjw create when they get all angy about inclusion.

    also "internet gas" really?

    Man even 90's Marvel wasn't that risque, she makes Pysclocke look covered lol. She looks like something from Jungle Fantasy than something from Marvel... if the makers of Jungle Fantasy did super heroes lol.

    Also Snowflakes problem wasnt just the look, it was the name and what it was supposed to represent and how it represented non binary people really badly as well as it being a mockery more than a representation. Making it more 'pleasing' on the eyes makes little difference. :P

    Eh, I don't need a teen to look like a 21 year old porn actress either, though I welcome her buldge being smaller than her brother's ... Also platform shoes remain an eternal sin of our species, I fear we will never be able to atone for this crime.

    Errrm, anyway. There is a fairly wide range between attractive/pleasant to look at and flat out slutty. The most fascinating thing is how Marvel manged to to piss off/annoy everyone with these horrendous designs. That is kinda rare these days.

    Its hilarious how in this, both sjws and regular comic fans are both annoyed by this. Sjws feel marvel is taking the piss out of them, while regular comic fans are pissed off seeing the fav comic company stooping to this level.

    The only ones who actually like these characters so far are trolls.
