First they gave us unsolicited opinions on Israel, and I did not speak out, because my opinions on Israel were also unsolicited. Then they canceled all my favorite series except Duggan's Deadpool, and I did not speak out, because that shit has happened constantly since the 90's (at least) and I have better things to do with my time. Then they made Captain America a Nazi, and I actually did speak out, because that was fucking stupid (but they kept it going anyway). Then they made a deal with a private military company/weapons manufacturer to release a children-targeted comic about a plucky, diverse group of warmongers teaming up with the Avengers and

Seriously, why Northrop Grumman? Why not Tesla or NASA or wherever the hell Neil Tyson works? Why the company that the very first MCU movie satirized?

That's part of the reason why I'm torn up tonight. I already said everything I felt like saying on Twitter. I didn't know the company they made a deal with is also a pmc..ugh.

It's comfy being a DC fan. We might have shitty movies, but at least we don't have Batman giving the thumbs up to war profiteers.

It's nice that Disney bought Fox properties but Disney, Marvel, Miramax, Star Wars, etc., etc., etc. are all still dead to me.

They pulled out of that partnership though, and according to some Marvel execs like Quesada, they were just as surprised as everyone else was. All signs point to Perlmutter being an asshole and going behind everybody's back to push some stupid deal again.

I don't know if anybody at Marvel except for Perlmutter, Nicieza, and everybody else who made that comic knew about the Northrop Grumman deal beforehand.
