Who cares how close it was to some dumb 21st century comic?

I don't know much about comics either.

Man, you really hate post-90's comics. Strange how that's around the same time Hollywood started messing with comics.


That's okay, Kip. That's why you have us.

Once Hollywood started making big Marvel movies, the tail started wagging the dog and Marvel became something it shouldn't have. I date the end of the classic era of Marvel comics to around July 2000, when the first X-Men movie came out. That's the beginning of the end. Very few Marvel comics released past then satisfy me. It was already getting screwed up in the late '90s, but it takes on a whole different flavour this century. Less real, less sincere, less direct, less alive.

Technically the first big Marvel movie was Blade in 1998, but that was more a vampire movie than a superhero movie and it didn't have the same effect as X-Men. X1 really started the modern craze for comic book movies. And while that might be good for comic book movies, it wasn't so good for the quality of the comics.

Yep, I agree with you there. I hated the tail wagging the dog. I hated the fact that the comics had Peter start growing organic webbing after that first Spider-Man movie with Toby came out. The two mediums should be separate from each other, and the comics shouldn't be messed with just to market some movies that'll be irrelevant in a decade once new filmmakers come along with different approaches to things. Every time one movie gets made, another filmmaker comes along in ten years and says, "I think we can get closer to the comics this time," and everything in the previous films gets tossed out the window. Great, so comics keep adjusting to things that won't matter in another ten years?

If only, Kip. I used to believe that there was a firewall between the two, but over the last decade I've notice that movies tend to influence comics due to the studios' desire to market their product. That's not fair to comic book fans. It's bad enough that we don't get the characters and stories we grew up with faithfully rendered on screen, but they have to mess with the comics every time someone makes one single movie as well?

That's definitely the movie Magneto. The comic book version has white hair like Quicksilver. I think they should have dyed Fassbender's hair or given him a wig.
