M-She-U Keeps M-She-Uing

Just a quick one for the four o'clock fun spot.

YaBoiZack points out that the new real She-Hulk trailer looks an awful lot like the fake, parody Black Widow trailer from Saturday Night Live in 2015.

Compare:

Critical Drinker has thoughts. Bad thoughts.


Some might say, "What's wrong with making a girly show about a girl character?"

I guess I'd answer, "Since they made a girly show about a male character, Moon Knight, in fairness, they should make a very male show about their girl characters, but the M-She-U doesn't seem to be doing that. The female-led shows get made to appeal to female audiences, and the male-led shows also get made to appeal to female audiences."



By the way: The America Chavez character was originally a Hispanic human being. The nutty SJW hire Gabby Rivera turned her into a lesbian Dr. Frankenfurter type character from the "Utopian Parallel" where she had two biological mothers, because lesbians can get each other pregnant in utopia.

That was super-stupid and Marvel actually retconned that and said that was all "false memories." America is now a human being again who had a mother and father like human beings do.

But in the M-She-U movie -- they returned her to her "alien with two biological lesbian alien mothers" origin.

It doesn't even make sense. If she's an alien, how is she Hispanic?

Yes, Clark Kent is physically white, but he doesn't brag about being Caucasian or Caucasian culture, as "America Chavez" does. He tries to be a good human, not a good White Person.

America Chavez, the alien version, has no connection to Hispanics or Hispanic culture, being an alien who just got here when she was a teenager.

So why is she speaking Spanish? Why is she a Hispanic chauvanist? Why does she brandish herself with badges and pins signifying solidarity with La Raza?

These things could be justified logically when she was a human (even though they're still racist)... but not when she's an alien who just happens to have olive-colored skin.


Was the reversion to the stupid "My Two Lesbian Alien Biological Moms" backstory a Victoria Alonso decision? She is very, very chauvanistic about being "Brown and Queer," after all.

I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Oh...and the Obi-Wan series is just another case of making the main character a side-show in his own series. The "star" is the BIPOC bad gal who turns good and THEY save Luke.

34 Also, originally, Jen Walters (Bruce Banner's...cousin) became She-Hulk by getting a blood transfusion from Bruce. Thus giving her a weaker version of his powers.

This tv series seems to have tossed that idea and have Jen choosing to be part of an experiment. Which really undercuts her character.

A victim of the Buffalo Tops store shooting says the 911 operator hung up on her. The victim called while the shooting was in progress and whispered to prevent being discovered by the shooter. The 911 operator got angry at her for whispering, yelled at her, said "something crazy," then hung up.

Dolley loves her trashy reality shows. The only reason she can get into comic book movies at all is because it's sort of like one long story, so it becomes easy to just put the next one in.

It's been a while since she watched a superhero thing, though. I think it was the first fifteen minutes of Falcon and the Winter Soldier that was the last.

And I get that.


Same thing with Thor, originally he was an old crippled guy who transformed into Thor. And then just...stopped transforming back into his old, crippled alter ego.

There ARE good stories, or not-terrible stories, you can tell with that version of She Hulk. This looks worse than Harvey Birdman.

I think it's a quality of writers thing. This is more strongly an issue in western literature, but many of the good writers have been pushed out on account of insufficient wokeness. Male entertainment is considerably less woke in the west and so we can still see good works there.

Pulpy lowest common denominator stuff makes up the majority of manga (to use a less corrupted environment as an example) but there's also well written stuff.

They built slowly and cautiously with hints towards a larger story that eventually became the focus. I think there was a solid amount of luck and hard work involved.

With that story done, though, where do you go? The larger story dictated a lot, precluding a lot of changes suits might have wanted to make, but the limiting factor is gone now. It's just "your imagination", and the people doing the imagining now have pretty terrible imaginations.

86 All these comic book movies are being used as universal frameworks to build narratives and plots from bits and pieces because these movie houses are lazy and devoid of thought.

If you told human beings that inhabited the distant past of 2-3 decades ago that in the future they've run out of all ideas for movies and moviemakers just thumb through comic books laying around and copy that stuff they wouldn't believe you.

97 I never read much of anything with She-hulk back when I was in my peak comic buying years, I was away from it it for 20 years or so, and then got back into it a bit, when I got turned onto Ya Boy, and EVS and the like. I'm frankly kind of grateful so much of it sucks, as an adult with disposable income it could be a dangerous thing for my wallet.

The content here for She-hulk seems pretty much what I would expect a she-hulk show to be, I'm sure it will be a woke mess, but I've long thought a court room procedural/action comedy would work for that character.

the CGI looks absolutely terrible though.

It's a thing men say generally when someone is about to blow their top. Notoriously this shouldn't be said to women, but men do so reflexively. I assume we do this because it does seem to work with men, like I told ace to chill a few days back when he was getting a bit overwrought about the PA race and Grenell's smear.

Also, if she's an alien from another world, why the name America? Why the stars and bars on her Jean jacket? Why the friggin' American star that pops up to portal her to other dimensions?

As Nerdrotic and others point out, they have decades upon decades of deep wells of characters and popular old plot lines to pull from. Instead they try to shove all the new woke characters and plots down the audience's throat. Poor choices. It's biting them in the butt and sweet schadenfreude for me.

Well to dig deeper in this, I think men fundamentally come from a background of being coached extensively to control our emotions. As acting emotionally is dangerous, simply noting that a man is getting angry will usually get him to pause and take stock. A man who feels he might go emotionally out of control will often self-isolate.

Women are mostly looking either for a sort of empathy-agreement thing or someone to vent to. Men err in either approaching this by trying to fix the perceived problem or telling them to calm down.

178 I like She Hulk as a character, but she really should be like the comics: Always She Hulk, all the time. That made her interesting and different than Bruce/Hulk.

But since they made Bruce Hulk all the time, that wouldn't be interesting so she changes, like Bruce used to but they got rid of that because it was boring so...

wait what?

Anyway, I'm not exactly sure what audience they are targeting with this: girls who have a power fantasy of wanting to be able to juggle tanks?

194 Off topic, but as long we're discussing entertainment, I watched "2000 Mules" last night with some friends. I thought it was convincing. Production quality could have been better though.

It's sort of what I suspected, old fashioned ballot stuffing. An organization bought GPS cell data for marketing purposes and showed how certain people were making like 50 drops at different ballot boxes a day. Dropping them off at like 3am, etc.

No question a lot of fraud happened. It's just figuring out what are votes being "harvested" (like a union collecting votes of workers and turning them in) or were they all fraud?

I'm definitely more convinced after watching it that Trump probably did narrowly win a few key states.

I stopped keeping up a long time ago, but the Hulk was a great character because he had to walk that line of knowing there was an unstoppable monster inside of him that would solve all the problems by making more.

To pull the mail steal off, you need a padded voter registration list with non existent people (that is where you get the house with 150 ballots delivered to it) and real time access to voter history files so you can figure out who is unlikely to vote and stuff the ballot box after the fact with an absentee ballot. In person voter fraud is a lot harder to pull off especially with voter id. Mules are paid per ballot and expected to take the fall if caught without upper level support and payoffs are arranged in cash via walking around/get out the vote money. I think GOPe dabbles in that fraud too especially in primaries. Notice that Roy Blunt's son and several of his former workers are paying canvassers not to collect signatures in Michigan for a voter integrity initiative. One canvasser got 50k for not working gathering signatures. Money came from leftists.

If she wants, she'll give you the thirty second recap of the 20 minute story, kind of like watching SportsCenter highlights instead of the whole game.

If you're lucky she'll say "Nevermind, it wasn't that important."

Yeah, let's just take a random upscale urban woman we all work with, and make her the model for a superhero, because that'll please the audience, which is exactly like all the people in this expensive and gay-looking office we're in right now.

She'll be bitter and resentful about her womanhood, and angry and fearful, because that's the baseline of female existence in this world, amirite? And of course - she'll be regular-pretty, but homely by industry standards, because we subvert expectations around here, and this movie's not for the male gaze... it's for boss bitches. Yas kween... slay.

Then she'll live out her dream of fame and glamor she's had since she was the unpopular mousy girl in school, but she finds out through her journey of self-discovery that there's much more to being a Slay Kween of the Me-She-U than sparkly dresses and toxic patriarchy.

This is all very original and there's no way a rando on the internet would think of this and give me a million dollar bonus.

310 I like what a pastor I heard said about going out to eat. He limited it to dating a girl the first time but it went something like this:

Guy picks up girl and they head to his choice of a restaurant. She decides she would rather go somewhere else. The pastor says "she's not being deliberately contrary here, she's testing him. She may not even be aware of it, but she wants to know if he's strong and will be a leader. He should say at this point 'well lets go there next time, for now we're here so we will eat here.'"

I like that theory. Of course she might be a Vegan who hates this place because their CEO donated to a Republican or something but in that case you're better off pissing her off and not getting any closer.

343 I think the "where to go" question is only difficult because one side is thinking, "we shouldn't go out and should stay home and save money", or "I make bad food choices" or "I don't even know how hungry I am" or something similar. So you're not only arguing with each other but also with your own inner dilemmas. If everybody is hungry and there's no choice but to go out picking a place is always easy.

Some notes:
Not perpetually - just on Black Box cabernet night when she kibitzes with the gurlz about all the dick she recently took - fifteen men on a drunk chick's chest, etc. Empowering stuff like that.

The rest of the time, she's a buttoned-up (but brilliant!) accountant with an 80-IQ Chippendale's dancer as a secretary. But sometimes she has to break up the monotony of her highly paid office job in a very trendy club district, by taking a break from corporate piracy and doing the real thing.

396 The two female leads in Dr Strange 2 are meh as well. It feels on purpose, but I can't figure why.

I think the entire "Woke" movement has a huge mental issue with any aspect of Sexuality, and this inability to showcase an actual attractive woman is part of it.

"This is a new shipment received on 5-10-2021 and is one of the best quality batches we have ever received!
These are authentic Vietnam Era Military Surplus Chinese Type 56 SKS rifles, manufactured at the #26 Jianshe Arsenal factory."

Get one from a restaurant supply store. They'll be cheap and wok out.

Meetings I hated.

- Told I have to give one of the presentations
- Presentations are 15 minutes with 5 minutes for questions
- Spend time on a good presentation
- See on the agenda that mine is the last one
- First one goes 40 minutes and 20 of questions
- No time for my talk because the big boys have a hard stop.

407 First thing I do with ramen is cook my onion in the water. Then I crush the ramen in the wrapper and pull out the 'flavor' pack and throw it in cabinet with the other hundred or so I'm saving for zombietimes. Toss the ramen in the pot along with couple spoons of Better Than Boullion, right at the end stir in a couple eggs.

Can't say that about Elizabeth Olsen myself.

Yeah, she's no Charlize Theron, but not too bad.

Only the MCU can take a hot girl, turn her character evil, and she puts on MORE clothing instead of stripping down, per tradtion.

Posted by: Mark Andrew Edwards, RIP Oregon Muse at May 18, 2022 05:39 PM (XvPQV)

414 Wait and see? They can wait forever for all I care.
Movies cost 18 bucks, no way am I paying to see woke crap infect a favorite franchise.
Newsflash...every time I go to a comic store I"m the only woman there. who's doing their audience research...Frank Luntz?

Posted by: vivi at May 18, 2022 05:47 PM (33kEg)

415 Yeah Elizabeth Olsen would definitely get it. But the general hotness trend in the MCU lately is...meh.

416 cool going for the willow!

She Hulk looks like it could have been a lot of fun. They could have made a brilliant action comedy, but, no, cannot do that, because, grrl pwr!

Hey! Someone subscribed to my newsletter! I've been saying this for about 3 decades now.

There is only one Star Wars movie, and it does not have an Episode title.

420 I remember a time when it was said that Disney bought Marvel so they would have something to appeal to boys. Something comparable to their Disney Princess line. But since then, they've gone out of their way to turn their newly-purchased boys' franchise into the most generic of girls' franchises. The stupidity of these people is boundless....

Posted by: Castle Guy at May 18, 2022 09:02 PM (Lhaco)

421 I watched episode 1 of Moon Knight having read the comics many years ago. I'm confused so far but figure on a couple more. And +1 on the "average chicks" comments. I thought the purpose was to watch chicks we can't see every day.
